    Don’t tase me, bro!

    But seriously, PDX Police are notorious for being overzealous in their use of (any) force.

    …KATU reported police recently completed refresher training on the use of Tasers.

    They trained on the poor, unsuspecting Halsted!

    Wow. If they tried accusing him of being violent because he had a kung fu film collection…

    Would they have just shot him if he was an actual martial artist?

    Note to self: be wary of going to Portland…
