Mayor Bills #OccupyPortland for Vandalism by Publius 10 Nov 2011 post a comment Share This: From KGW News: Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis delivered an invoice to Occupy Portland for $1,546.52 on Wednesday morning. That's the estimated amount of damage done to two Gresham police cars parked near the Occupy Portland encampment in downtown Portland on Tuesday. The patrol cars were reportedly vandalized by a person affiliated with the movement who was building a shelter at the site while the Gresham officers were inside the Multnomah County Courthouse testifying on a case. Bemis and Gresham Police Chief Craig Junginger hand delivered the invoice to the Occupy Portland information booth at around 9:30 am. In a cover letter that went with the bill, Bemis wrote: "It seems patently unfair that Gresham residents, the vast majority of whom are 99-percenters, should have to pay to repair the damage caused by a member of your movement." The alleged assailant was arrested by Porltand Police at the time of the vandalism. Read more here.
