Meanwhile, on the other side of Fencie

The recent "kettling" of "protesters" by the Portland police took some deserved attention away from this story, which reports on the latest in the federal lawsuits against the cops over their riot control tactics. Judge Marco Hernandez is continuing to police the police, as it were.

Singled out for scorn has been a cop named Brent Taylor, who really got into it with the black-clad avengers last year before the judge banned him from combat.

The latest order requires the cops to undergo a bunch of training. Shoot first, get trained later – ain't that the Portland way.
