Oregon Gov Kate ‘De-Fund Police’ Brown Wants Neighbors to Call Cops on Thanksgiving Day Gatherings

It’s amazing how people who want to “re-imagine” law enforcement are quick to call upon the same police that they’re hating on when they want something done.

Police detractors who are now calling on the boys in blue include the Portland City Councilwoman who called the police when her Lyft driver tried to get her to leave his vehicle, to the Minneapolis City Council, which needs more police to investigate the crime but no one wants to work there.

Now we can add another.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown, who sided with Portland protesters and wants to restructure, redefine, or re-whatever the police, now wants the police to do her bidding. She’s called on citizens to hold Thanksgiving Day gatherings to six people or less. While she’s not asking the police to go door-to-door to enforce the measure, she is calling on neighbors to spy on, and then rat out, each other.

Brown said:

“Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

Got that?  Gathering with friends and loved ones to celebrate Thanksgiving is just like hosting a loud party that disturbs the peace and robs your neighbors of tranquility in their homes.

Violators can be sentenced up to 30 days in jail, fined $1,250, or both.

Let’s hope the neighbors and the police find something, anything, better to do.

    This is the same Governor who paid off the unions by continuing to pay all State employees for “ telecommuting”, but who aren’t doing any work. I wen fishing the other day with 2 State worker friends who were “telecommuting” from a boat on the McKenzie River. Said as long as the can answer texts & reply to calls “we’re getting paid and earning vacation times. They toasted beers in celebration! Your tax dollars at work!
