The Portland City Council has given unanimous approval to a resolution that tells the city attorney to appeal a State Employment Board's ruling that orders the city to reinstate Officer Ron Frashour.  The Police Union has ardently supported Frashour, arguing he followed Bureau protocol, acting in defense when he fatally shot Aaron Campbell in 2010.  Commissioner Nick Fish says the council's backing is not an attack on the union, but an effort to clarify policies and protect the public.  Councilor Amanda Fritz says she's also asked the mayor to put the issue on the city's list of priorities for the next Oregon Legislative session.
