A grand jury charged a Portland, Ore., police officer with assault Tuesday after he was filmed hitting a protester in the head with his baton during last summer’s demonstrations over the killing of George Floyd.
Officer Corey Budworth, who has been with the Portland Police Bureau for more than five years, is accused of “unlawfully, knowingly and recklessly causing physical injury” to the protester, who said the blows left her with head and back pain.
Budworth faces one count of assault in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor that carries up to a one-year jail sentence. He has been placed on administrative leave, a police spokesman said.

I’d like to know what the protester was doing when the cop cracked her over the head. Was she throwing a rock or a bottle at the cops? Was she in the middle of committing arson or looting?
I’d be willing to bet 100 bucks that she deserved that hit on the head.
Portland “protestors” and their “demonstrations”
But murdering Ashlii Babbitt in cold blood is A OK, as long as that person voted for Trump
And I give a flower to the big fat cop,
He takes his club and he beats me up.
I give a flower to the garbage man,
He stuffs my girl in the garbage can.
And I give it to the landlord, when the rent comes ‘round.
He throws it in the toilet and he flush it down.
It goes into the sewer with the yuck running through her,
And it runs into the river that we drink.
Hey world, you stink!
In March, the city settled with Jacobs for $50,000 plus $11,000 in legal fees, court records show.
Hah! That’s chicken feed. If she was really injured the settlement would’ve been into six or seven figures. The city just gave her that amount to shut her up and get her to go away.
Not detailed that it was the officer’s dance class baton where he is studying to be a drum major. Inspired by The Music Man’s “76 Trombones” number. Baton had rounded pink tips.
Yep Portland Policeman changed with baton hit and Ashli Babbitt murderer still on government payroll, safe sleeping in their bed at night!
Fun poem we needed today.
As William Carlos Williams wrote (In the long poem Asphodel, That Greeny Flower):
It is difficult
to get the news from poems
But men die miserably every day
of what is found there.
Between Seattle ad Portland, who would want to be a cop there??
Let’s pay no attention at all to what the ‘protester” was doing at the time. Whatever it was, though, it certainly wasn’t rioting.
Yeah, the “protestors” these days are a far cry from that bunch.
That’s our Hitler!!
Apparently not many...they are fleeing in droves.
So who the hell were the police officers who arrested him for this?
