Second Drug Overdose In as Many Days at Occupy Portland Squatters Camp

We are the 99%.

Maxwell Logan was arrested for smoking marijuana and found to have several warrants.

Occupy Portland protesters surrounded the tent where medical personnel were treating a man suffering from a drug overdose. The man was using heroin he purchased at the camp.
The Portland Police reported:

On Wednesday November 9, 2011, Portland Police officers working the Occupy Portland encampments at Chapman and Lownsdale Square Parks, responded to the report of a man suffering from a drug overdose in a tent at Chapman Square. Officers found the man in a tent and he was blue and not breathing. Officers immediately began performing CPR and called for medical to respond. Medical personnel responded and were able to revive the man then transported him to an area hospital. Officers learned that the man used heroin purchased within the encampments.

During this police and medical response, nearly 100 people were gathered around the tent and not following police direction to allow medical personnel room to work on the patient. Officers worked with the Occupy Portland Peace & Safety Team to assist in moving people away from the patient.

This is the second overdose in as many days in the encampments.

Portland Police officers also made several arrests and issued several exclusions related to criminal activity.

29-year-old Brandon Steven Ash was arrested for a parole violation after observing him smoking marijuana in Lownsdale Square.

24-year-old Tyler Nees was given a citation and excluded from Lownsdale Square after officers observed him drinking a beer.

A 17-year-old male was observed smoking marijuana and was transported to JDH for various warrants out of Clackamas County.

18-year-old Alysha Schuler was issued a citation for Drugs in the Park.

Officers took another report from a member of the media about harassment from people in the Occupy Portland encampments. There have been several reports of harassment and physical confrontations of members of the media over the past 2 weeks.

22-year-old Maxwell Logan was contacted for smoking marijuana and found to have several warrants.

Portland Fire & Rescue responded to the report of a dumpster fire which did not cause any damage.

The Portland Police Bureau will continue to provide updates on arrests and public safety conditions within the Occupy Portland encampments.

    What a shame,

    Another scuzzie scuffles off,

    Invite him to partake of common sense and personal responsibility,
    Thanks, but no thanks,

    Invite him to see the wisdom of limited government,
    Thanks, but no thanks,

    Invite him to accept Christ as Lord,
    Thanks, but no thanks,

    You might lead, no one forces them to follow,

    Er whatttt ?
    PURCHASED ? As in ” buy with money ” purchase ?
    Why are these dealers selling and not sharing ?
    Are the dealers paying their fair share of taxes ?
    If the drug dealers sell drugs and DO NOT pay taxes are they the 1% ?

    To realize that these people breed and vote is very scary!!!

    Since the druggie did not assume room temperature and smell like it, the Occupy Portland rabble will no doubt vociferously deny that he is one of them. And they might have a point, because they otherwise seek and wreak of utter decomposition.

    At some point, one of the occupiers families is going to sue one of these cities for neglecting the job of policing these camps.

    It will be at that point the cities will end this dangerous farce of a protest.

    I predict that soon the democrats (secretly) will be ending this partying.

    “What is amazing to me is the inability of much of our academic
    world and much of our news media and most of the people on
    Occupy Wall Street to have a clue about history.”

    Why I clearly remember them gun totin’ racist Tea Party extremists doing this too. All the poor media folks that had their lives threatened by tea baggers. My oh my. The smell of reefers glowing all across the tea bagger meet-ups is well documented. Somebody will publish it any day now, right along with the movie footage of them spitting on black folks.

    You betcha. Any. Day. Now.
