Portland official who wants to defund police, calls cops on Lyft driver

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty who was pushing to defund the police, recently called 911 herself in regards an argument with a Lyft driver. Hardesty dialed 911 over a ride-share driver who was following Lyft’s coronavirus safety guidelines to keep a window open. She repeatedly demanded the force send out officers. Four days after the incident she again called for an $18M cut for cops.

Dam you are misinformed if you think defund the police ever meant defund the police completely.

But yeah, she’s a hypocrite and should have called a social worker or mediator to deal with the situation. Calling police in a non violent situation is wrong according to the majority of the left.

I’m fine with taking that money from police to give to other organizations to handle situations where cops are used but should not be. For example, when you have someone who is mentally unstable not not really a danger to others. But calling a cop on a lift driver for opening a window? Cmon, man!

She came and spoke at my community politics class at Portland state and she had zero policy positions then and wouldn't give any specifics. Not surprised she wants to cut police funding but wants them to protect her.

Anyone saying de-fund the police is because of military equipment usage is lying out their teeth. Why didnt you protest this during obama era? When he was literally doing it infront of your eyes Democrats and their selective perception at its finest. Trump reversed that ish

This is highly pervasive. They theoretically want things how they want it, but once the rubber meets the road they want that other thing.

This Person should be charged for wasting tax payer dollars,911 is for emergencies . Why do I have a strange feeling that this person had their cell phone set on record, hoping that Law Enforcement did or said something anything that could be used against them.... I smells a rat 🐀🐀🐀

Defend doesn't mean abolish or get rid of. Why are people so wilfully ignorant???? It means exactly what the 2nd amendment says.

Reallocate police funding makes more sense than defund.

That’s not the whole story there were extenuating circumstances that justified her calling the police. Apparently the Broad had just had her hair done and didn’t want the wind to mess it up. Oh yeah And don’t call Broads,... “Broads” they don’t like it😂

Go ahead call me a dumb Canadian. You won't hurt my feelings, I just consider the source. When you claim defund the police are you asking to do away with police every where? Good luck with that. I would think what is needed a complete audit of your police services. Without oversight any organization will bend towards corruption. Stop public paying for police services? Then what outsource it to private contractors? How's that working for your Military?😜😂🤣🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

I don't see how those who favor defunding can't call the police. Yesm their are some on the extreme side who literally want to get rid of police altogether, but that isn't what most supporters want, nor is it what defunding actually means. It isn't a difficult thing to understand people.
