Portland Police Officer Accused of Mistreatment and Racial Profiling is Promoted to Sergeant

Portland police officer Todd Tackett, who the city's Citizen Review Committee found last night was disparaging to an African American man, was promoted this afternoon to sergeant.

Last night's ruling was the result of a complaint filed by 62-year-old Floyd McCorvey last summer that Tackett disrespected and racially profiled him when he falsely accused him of being a pimp and a crackhead and referred to his low-income housing before citing him for jaywalking.

The Portland Police Bureau's initial investigation into the incident found that allegations that Tackett was disrespectful to McCorvey were "unproven." 

Furthermore, the city's Independent Police Review division dismissed the part of McCorvey's complaint that alleged racial discrimination.

The volunteer-based Citizen Review Committee, which hears appeals to bureau rulings on citizen complaints, unsuccessfully urged an investigation of Mr. McCorvey's racial discrimination complaint earlier this year. 

Their 4-2 ruling last night pertained to the allegation that Tackett was disparaging and discourteous to McCorvey, and recommended the police bureau changed their ruling on that charge from "unproven" to "sustained."

KBOO's Jenn Chavez got more details on the CRC ruling from Portland Copwatch's Dan Handelman.

As federal lawmakers advance legislation that would increase timber harvests across the nation, including in Oregon, the environmentalist group Cascadia Forest Defenders continues a tree-sit and blockade on proposed timber sale land in southern Oregon.

Occupiers with the White Castle Tree-Sit, located near Myrtle Creek, Oregon, aim to block the proposed one-hundred-ninety acre White Castle Variable Retention Harvest, which they call a thinly veiled clearcut targeting dwindling old-growth forests.

KBOO's Jenn Chavez spoke with Mary Grace with the Cascadia Forest Defenders for an update on the tree-sit, which began in early June and is now nearing its third month.
