Watch Call the Cops Rob Hustle
While advocating for medical marijuana patients is a primary focus of Compassionate Oregon, we are also greatly concerned about the compassionate treatment of our fellow citizens in many situations.
Compassionate Oregon takes a position in opposition on such issues as the death penalty, minimum mandatory sentencing and the use of excessive force by, and the militarization of, local law enforcement. Many of these issues are the primary focus of other groups and organizations in Oregon so when and where we can, we will be supporting efforts by those groups as well making our own efforts to restore compassion in the way we treat our fellow human beings under less than ideal situations.
This video is a compilation of video’s capturing law enforcement using excessive and/or deadly force. It does not provide context for such force but the methods used by law enforcement in these clips will illustrate why Compassionate Oregon opposes such behavior and believes sharing this video with others will be the first steps in bringing this behavior into the spotlight in the hope of bringing about change in the way law enforcement serves and protects. Please keep in mind these is not the normal behavior of the vast majority of law enforcement but it belies an attitude by some that is not acceptable to even those in the field.
