Joe Anybody interviews Portland Police:
Bob King about so-called Occupy Crime
I ask Bob King with public relations with the Portland Police
about why the fixation on the Occupy Portland - so-called crime finger pointing. I presented my side somewhat but didn't get
the answers I was wanting. The veteran he speaks of that needed CPR ...could of been at the Veteran parade else where
in town. http://youtu.be/lvIgKqnxW5U
Bring Hope To
I met these two girls who were
looking to speak with the police information officer. As we walk around looking for him we stop and they tell me about Occupy
Portland and there concern and hopes. My hope is in the youth like these girls, who in their show of solidarity, peace, and
understanding... to come out and document the police evicting the peaceful occupy group. This kind of action(s) by the youth
in Occupy Portland is inspiring. http://youtu.be/tVauGjI2I70

when what do I hear and see... A singing entourage on the staircase singing a welcome song to Jamie Dimon who is the CEO of

change" resonated throughout the lobby as security, employees, and patrons looked on.

Conversations With The Police
At the Condi Rice Protest in Portland on 10/19/ I barge in on a conversation trying to be started by a cop, by asking
a masked protester "how is it going"? - I thought he might be asking him why he was wearing a mask? --my mistake! turns into
a conversation with me and the cop. As the video facts show, the masked protester didn't want to talk with the cop in the
first place or the second place. I didn't mind talking with my camera on. In our conversation the cop mistakes me for
another average joe free lance vidoeographer filmer.... [but] it wasn't me. I add to this video here a small outtake of when
I did film him speaking w/ the corporate media, but there was no conversation at that time with him and me.

Joe Anybody Reports:
on Portland Police Accidental Beanbag Shotgun Shooting
When Dane Reister took my camera and ticketed me, I filed a tort claim and won. The city changed their policy to allow
the public to film the police in public. Wow! I had to fight for my right to film, which is my free speech. This officer reaction
to me or others that are watching him, is ugly and disturbing. So now that same officer shoots a 20 year old 4 times with
his beanbag [?] gun, BUT its loaded with real LIVE shotgun shells - This report is my opinion of officer Dane Reister.
