Don't dismantle systems until you've designed & at least started implementing replacements.

"We need a plan" says Mayor/police commissioner. Should have had one before disbanding GVRT. Over a year later, still waiting on its "community led" replacement.

Reform >>> dismantling
The headline is misleading. Officer reluctance to volunteer for duty that the community board tasked with overseeing them has still yet to clearly define is perfectly understandable.

People are being terrorized, shot, & killed on the streets of Portland with alarming & increasing frequency in part bc our department is now woefully understaffed (down 125 since last year) & bc politicians embraced half-baked "defund" rhetoric.

Our part of town's had relatively few shootings, but a neighbor was shot & killed in NE Portland in December. Parts of East Portland are increasingly dangerous. It's unacceptable that our people have to live in such danger. And it was all too foreseeable.

@POTUS: YOU'RE killing people. You could make a case for vaccination that respects the public's intelligence & acknowledges & contextualizes adverse events from vaxes. Instead, your admin obscures AE data, encourages tech suppression of concerns & spouts facile talking points
YOU are feeding suspicions. YOU are preventing people from engaging in truly informed consent. YOU think dumb videos, vaccine lotteries & dumb celeb PSAs that all recite the same trite "experts say vaccines are safe & effective" + overheated emotional appeals are persuasion
Pro-vax messengers keep attacking those raising concerns about vaccines in unhinged ways, rather than calmly & rationally disputing their claims. That is not how sober scientists behave. That is how people who are gripped by fear &/or wish to cultivate it in others behave.

Was surprised to see that 22yo FTM trans YTer & sincere, thoughtful JBP-defender Ollie Chadra is detransitioning.

Daisy speaks here about how she was also led to become Christian thru an initially intellectual & detached investigation of theology.

had believed in God before this, but not a personal God. Not a God that intentionally makes & guides every single individual. Not a God that cares about me. I think even then I really believed all these things deep down, but I couldn't face them consciously bc of what its ... 3/
