The crime wave that has been allowed to envelop Portland starts 2023 with a car thief dying in an automobile crash. Lawless Portland set homicide and auto theft records for the second year running. Meanwhile the rest of the country has had a decline in homicides.
“People would assume something on I-84 or something on I-5, but when you say it’s a dead-end neighborhood and that there was a fatal crash that hurts a lot,” said Reynolds, who said he’s considering moving out of Portland because of the crash and increased crime in the area. “It seems that people just don’t care.”
Don’t miss the laughable comment from PBOT’s Hannah Schafer trying to say the possibility of local control of speed limits will help rein in traffic violence in Portland. If there is ZERO enforcement of our laws, why would it help to lower speed limits Ms. Schafer? Hopefully with Hardesty in the rear view mirror a touch of common sense will return to PBOT.
