News / Cops UPDATED: Chief Reese Says Cops Who Declared "I Am Darren Wilson" on Facebook Face Internal Investigation, Calls Actions "Inflammatory"

Posted by Denis C. Theriault on Mon, Nov 24, 2014 at 10:03 AM

UPDATE 11:31 AM: Chief Mike Reese has issued a statement confirming he ordered the three officers named below to take down their "I am Darren Wilson" Facebook profile pictures. He's also asked Professional Standards to review the matter—using their badges, he says, trumped the officers' right to free speech in their time off the job.


It didn't matter that Ferguson, Mo., was 2,000 miles away. When Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot unarmed black teenager Mike Brown in August, hundreds of Portlanders protested.

They marched to the Portland Police Bureau's North Precinct. They drew chalk outlines to represent African Americans killed by police.

"Aaron Campbell, James Jahar Perez, Keaton Otis," one protester said. "Everybody here was somebody. They were someone. And now they're gone."

"UPDATE 11:38 AM: Mayor Charlie Hales' office also has sent out a statement cheering the chief's decision, saying "the actions taken by these three officers here in Portland" run afoul of conversations on lowering the temperature in the community ahead of the grand jury announcement and ongoing attempts at police reform."
