Police Shootings, Misconduct and Lawsuits

Do you ever wonder how much police misdeeds costs the people of Portland? Join Flying Focus and Portland Copwatch member Dan Handelman and KBOO Radio's Jasmin for an hour's conversation about the most horrific police misconduct cases that have caused the largest payouts by the City to victims or their families. The cases include shootings and other acts of violence, while the overall review of lawsuit settlements also includes more minor misconduct such as damaging people's fences, homes and cars. Most of the show focuses on the top 25 settlements between 1993 and 2021, but also more broadly the questions of whether officers are ever held accountable, how often police use deadly force in Oregon, and how many Portland Police have been involved in deadly force incidents.

For more information see the Portland Copwatch website at https://www.portlandcopwatch.org . This show was produced, recorded and edited by Dan using Zoom and other computer technology.
