(West Linn, OR)  --  A Portland-area police officer who allegedly asked if a Black Lives Matter protest was a "day of target practice" on Facebook is out of a job. Officer Tom Newberry of the West Linn Police Department had been placed on paid administrative leave since last summer after the posts were reported. His firing was announced at a Wednesday city council meeting. Officials aren't saying why Newberry was fired, but note the investigation into whether he violated any department or city policies is no longer active.
