I was identified by Belle Burch as – not one of them – when she approached me at Ken Kesey Square, and, when we met ten days later after I showed her my work with a homeless Veteran. I was not of the Street, not one of their gang!
The President of the United States is exhibiting the exact same behavior, at home, and abroad. He likes to be seen with dictatorial Strong Men who get away with telling people what to do. Trump and Walton – are sex offenders! Trump’s Jesus-freak Mob, do not care!
EUGENE, Ore. – A group of people planned to gather at Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza in downtown Eugene to protest what they are calling police brutality.
The rally is in response to an incident Friday in the city’s park blocks that Eugene Police have called a near riot.
Police attempted to arrest a man, but they say he fought with the officer.
The officer shocked the man with a Taser and used pepper spray to subdue him.
Police declined further comment Monday.
In a Facebook post, demonstrators said they will gather at plaza outside the Lane County Courthouse before heading inside to the Eugene City Council meeting, which starts at 7:30 p.m. in Harris Hall.
Here’s what we know so far about what happened Friday:
Police said a crowd of roughly 50 people formed as they attempted to arrest 29-year-old Jeffery Don Walton.
Police said Walton fought with the officer, and that the officer used a Taser and pepper spray to subdue him.
Walton was charged with resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer.
Lane County Jail records show Walton was also booked in July on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender and delivery of marijuana to a person under 18.
