Portland Commissioner Who Wants To Defund The Police Calls 911

She felt unsafe, and played the Race Card

Portland city commissioner who wants to defund the police called 911 on Lyft driver

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who has pushed for police budget cuts, called 911 after a Lyft driver canceled her ride and asked her to get out of his car.

Lyft driver Richmond Frost told two Portland Police Department officers, who responded to the scene on Nov. 1, that Hardesty “became irate when he refused to roll the windows up,” according to a dispatch report,

Frost pulled into a Chevron gas station, canceled the ride and apparently asked her to leave the vehicle. Hardesty allegedly said she refused to exit the vehicle because “it was cold and she was a woman and alone.”

She called 911, telling the operator: “Well, I’ve got a Lyft driver that decided he would just drop me off at a filling station. Well, I’m not getting out of the car, in the dark, at a filling station, not happening. All because I asked him to put the window up. I’m not leaving.”

“I am not going to allow him to leave me on the side of the road. I paid for a ride and he says he canceled it, so I’m just going to sit here until he sends me another ride.”

The thing is, Lyft wants windows down to reduced the chance of spreading COVID19. The police dispatcher told Hardesty that there is no law broken, it’s his car, and he can tell her to get the hell out if he wants. The driver also called 911, telling that that she refused to get out of the car.

She told the Portland Tribune that she called 911 because she felt unsafe.

“I don’t call 911 lightly, but I certainly am not going to do anything that would put my personal safety at risk,” Hardesty told the newspaper.

“It’s a lot harder when you are Black or brown in America to make that decision … But I ultimately had very limited options.”

So, wait, it’s dangerous for a black or brown woman in a hardcore Biden voting city? Huh. It is highly interesting that she’s fine with calling 911 over something so minor because she feels unsafe, but,

Hardesty has been pushing for a budget amendment that would “reallocate $18 million from the Portland Police Bureau to reinvest in community, COVID-19 relief, and police alternatives.”

That push failed, and, it was just a week ago, and here she is calling 911 because she won’t get out of a car. Tells you something about the Elites, eh?

    And while we’re on the subject, turns out OR’s elections director resigned after writing a memo critical of the Secretary Of State and the computer systems used for elections.

    Looks like another one Rudy and Sidney will be investigating.

    Another state that has to be investigated.

    OR elections director resigns after blistering memo about the computers used for elections.

    Meanwhile in Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S. Postal Service (USPS) whistleblower Richard Hopkins is fighting against federal agents and the mainstream media to maintain his allegations that illegal backdated postmarks were added to some late mail-in ballots.

    Hopkins came forward only to have USPS Inspector General Russell Strasser try to bully him into saying his story was fabricated. On top of that, the Washington Post published an article stating that Hopkins had officially recanted his claims.

    There is secret recordings of federal officials trying to coerce this man into recanting.

    Like I said earlier if we are depending on the deep state liars, thieves and cheats owned by the democrats to get to the bottom of voter fraud. Good luck with that. This every evidence shows they have zero interest in the truth and only care about defeating Trump at any and all costs.

    Technically, calling 911 isn’t calling the police; the 911 dispatcher also sends ambulances and road crews out as well. But I can see the Portland Police not rushing to Miss Hardesty’s assistance, if they knew who made the 911 call. There could be a cat stuck in a tree that would take precedence.
