Federal Judge Holds PPB In Contempt For Tear Gas Use

(Portland, OR)  --  A federal judge is holding the Portland Police Bureau in contempt for violating a court order restricting its use of less-lethal weapons like tear gas and projectiles.  A federal judge says officers violated the order during protests against police brutality and systemic racism in June.  U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez issued the order on June 26th in response to a class-action lawsuit filed by Don't Shoot PDX that accused police of indiscriminately using tear gas against protesters.
