a d r i o f t h e d e a d: ALERT from Occupy Portland

ALERT! A man named Justin James Bridges, musician & ASL translator for Occupy Portland General Assembly, was assaulted by @PortlandPolice today during camp clean out.

He was beaten repeatedly in the back and has now lost use of his right arm. Though Justin was lying on the ground in compliance, Portland Police continuously beat him in the back with clubs until his eyes rolled back in his head. Fellow protesters thought he was dead. He is now in critical care.

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION, ESPECIALLY PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE, DO NOT HESITATE TO COME FORWARD. National Lawyers’ Guild # 503-902-5340. Protect rights, protect the truth.

Please share. And if you have info or evidence, for the sake of justice, come forward.

This is bullshit. Police don’t carry clubs, they were outlawed.

But they carry batons, right?

Could those actions be called “clubbing” someone, as opposed to batoning?

Berkeley, just last week:

I’m not in the mood to argue semantics when my fellow human beings are brutalized by a police state.
