Vulnerable road user killed

Another traffic death in Portland. Sad we now just accept the carnage as routine. Not that it would have helped prevent this death but does anyone know how we can get our police traffic division restored? I have seen so much of an increase in speeding and reckless driving since the riots in 2020. Yet the officials we have elected don’t seem to be doing anything except sticking up plastic wands and traffic barrels.

Until we have a DA that will prosecute criminals, irrespective of their skin color, then I wouldn’t hold our breath that the police are going to waste their time catching criminals if they just end up going through the revolving door of our City’s so called justice system.
Don’t get me wrong, police need to up their game too with better training and being more accountable for their actions. Unfortunately the police union will block any attempts at requiring officers to be better at their jobs.
