WTF?


It doesn't matter. Never does. Bark bark bark. Oh, the story is misrepresented? But... can I still bark? Yay! Bark bark bark.

I don't think it's misrepresented.


But it is.

It was represented as Portland police caving to SJWs and shredding a list of known gang members.

But I've shown the facts (from the local police department) that this list is nothing close to a list of known gang members at all and is being removed because it is causing more problems than it is solving.

But none of that matters. And it never does on ATS.

bark
bark
bark


In my careful assessment over the years, anytime an ATS bias member from the left or right says "Facts" I have to take a step back because I know they abuse that word so much it is essentially meaningless.

I only know the reality of the streets in the inner city anymore, and I know how all this gang stuff goes down.

The only reason there are any problems is because they let these people out on probation or parole. Frankly.

Funny, I thought they were criminals first and ethnic types second.
They won't bother writing up a description of you unless you get arrested.
Stop breaking the law and nobody will give a # about your melanin content.

You are a moderator.

Please set an example by looking a bit further into a click-bait thread (from this OP, no less) and at least acknowledge:

1 - It's not about criminals.
2 - The description is written, regardless of arrest.
3 - Not breaking the law does not protect you from this list.

This thread falls into that category of historical fiction where the time, place, and people are all facts but the representation of context is entirely made up for entertainment and virtue signalling.

Apparently the Portland Oregon police are stopping their policies of "gang affiliations" because over 20 years, it has placed too many minorities in that "classification".



Over 50% of murders are commented by blacks that make up 13% of the population. 90% of those murders are Black on black.... the black population was once 18%...

This makes one wonder the agenda in all this. Blacks are not gaining ground in anything but they take up a huge chunk of our news and time.

I live near Portland and all the murders are basically black on black out side of a few nut case killings...Being here 10 years it has gotten a lot worst as there are shooting weekly...I wonder how long before we become Chicago.

I responded to one of his threads about that, he makes approx 10,000 flags per year at a rate of around 7 posts per day or so. We need a forum here for flag competitions with golden trophies for the winners lol.

I was so ignorant of what was going on.

If Antifa gets on the list, which they are terrorists not gang members, I can understand why this list needed to be dropped.

We need to separate terrorists from gangsters. Terrorists are very upset misled ignorant political zombie types, whereas gangsters are born and raised thug killer c-murda drug pushing types.

Totally different animals, though I could see a few gang bangers joining antifa it's not really their thing and I'd consider it a pure coincidence.

Antifa and BLM definitely should be on the list with ISIS and Al-Q and the Nazis or KKK.

The news and stats are pretty much the same here in Nashville TN, give or take.

I'd guess it's similar all around the entire country.

Isn't this one of the biggest problems in our nation?
Hate, anger, and violence rule this world.

Everything we've done as a nation has failed to solve this.
I think we're doing everything wrong.

Facts are not racist. If there are more blacks on the list than what should be, based on population, deleting the lists won't change a thing. That's something that needs to be addressed by those communities, and corrected, or things will only get worse.


This particular list isn't a list of "facts"; it's a list of subjective conclusions with very little criteria.


Can you show evidence for that?


I already did. This isn't what you think it is.

People can be put on this list for having knowledge of gangs, wearing the wrong clothing, having a picture taken with a gang member, or even using "gang related" language.

It's honestly not the virtue signal you are looking for.


You made those claims, but I didn't see any links to support them. Happy to read those, if you have the, however.

Still, doesn't explain why they'd toss the lists because of race concerns, instead of accuracy concerns.

Go back and look. I linked. Here's another

And it was because of accuracy concerns, as well. Look down at the list where it shows reasons... it's ridiculously easy to get on the list.

I'm against this sort of list in the same way I am against these sorts of lists for gun restrictions. It is a list without any strict oversight nor accountability. It is up to the discretion of the person putting the name on it.

There are gang lists that are accurate through other agencies, with rigorous definitions and nuances with asterisks galore. But this list isn't one of those.
