Will Aaron Campbell's death finally bring police accountability to Portland?

A Multnomah County grand jury this week found no criminal wrongdoing by Portland police officer Ronald Frashour in the Jan. 28 fatal shooting of Aaron Campbell. The death of an unarmed young man distraught over the death of his younger brother has stoked long-burning fires in the community about the Portland Police Bureau's use of deadly force.

"We have a mindset in this country that homelessness is a problem that can wait," comments Jeremy Weir Alderson, founder of the Homelessness Marathon, "but it's a dire emergency for the people who are homeless, a drain on our economy, and a stain on our national honor. We ought to solve this problem, and we could if we would only turn our attention to it."

KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.

Short Description: 
Our Republic is broken. What's to be done? With Joe on vacation, Abe tosses out a possible answer: a

Our Republic is broken. A lockstep minority, cloaked in arcane rules, can bring business to a complete halt. The influence of monied interests is rampant. The social contract has been shredded, and cherished liberties erode. A yawning chasm opens between rich and poor. A bloated foreign empire bleeds the Treasury. The public discourse is controlled by a profit-driven Fourth Estate that is loath to criticize its owners. The promise of a populist president seems impotent against the entrenched forces arrayed against him.

Our Republic is broken. What is to be done? Let's call a Constitutional Convention and fix it.
