The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 11/03/09

Air date: 
Tue, 11/03/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Obama's grade thus far? A mixed bag.

Nearly a year after his election (but, in fairness, not yet a year into his first term), Barack Obama is an enigma. Thankfully, he has abandoned the rapacious aggression and naked nationalism of the Bush years, but on critical issues like warrantless surveillance and detention of combatants he is barely distinguishable from his criminal predecessors. His clear-eyed acceptance of global warming is refreshing -- not to mention timely -- but he appears on the verge of capitulating to the profiteers who run the American health care system.

Barack Obama remains a study in contradictions. Abe and Joe examine his record thus far, and speculate on what's to come.

Portland Police Internal Review Into Deadly Arrest Released

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 09/23/2009

The findings of the Portland Police internal review into the death of James Chasse [CHA-see] were released today.  James Chasse was a musician and writer who died three years ago from injuries arising from his arrest by Portland Police.
The review found that the use of force by officers at his arrest did not violate policy and that one of the officers “knew or should have known that Mr. Chasse had suffered a serious physical injury.’
However it found that Sergeant Kyle Nice violated a police board directive that should have lead to Chasse being taken straight to hospital, rather than to the Jail.
KBOO’s Paul Munday talked to Jason Renaud of the Mental Health Association, a friend of Jason Chasse, and Dan Handleman of Portland Copwatch, for their reaction.
