We hear so much about what is wrong with the Portland Police Bureau - and boy, is there a lot that needs to be talked about in regards to that - that it is easy to overlook the good. As I told reporters yesterday with KATU and KOIN, most of my interactions with the police have been good. Most cops are good and decent public servants who care deeply about the community. So I'm excited to see that Street Roots, Portland's paper that covers issues of homelessness and poverty, has a new regular column: written by Portland Police Officer Robert Pickett. This is a great way to promote dialog and understanding.
