PDX Police Sergeant Shoved Into Moving TriMet Bus At Occupy Portland March

Excerpt from Portland PD Report here

Tonight, Wednesday November 2, 2011, Portland Police officers from all precincts were called to assist with an Occupy Portland march through Downtown and the lower east side of Portland. This march started at Terry Schrunk Plaza and went throughout the Downtown core, crossing the river on the Hawthorne Bridge, into lanes of traffic along Southeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and back Downtown across the Burnside Bridge.

At several points along the march, some participants refused police requests to stay on the sidewalk and took over streets, affecting traffic along the way.

During the march, one subject shoved a police sergeant into a moving TriMet bus, then ran back into the crowd. After the march was over, officers located the assault suspect and placed him under arrest. The sergeant suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention.

30-year-old David Anthony Burgess was charged with Assaulting a Public Safety Officer, Interfering with a Police Officer, Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, and Harassment. Burgess was booked into the Multnomah County Jail.

Due to the size of the march and the lack of cooperation from many participants, the Rapid Response Team (RRT) was called to assist with crowd management as well as officers from the Traffic Division and all three precincts.

Will Mayor Lollipop clean out the mess now? Or watch as violence esclates?

Nibbling on GREEN cake
We’re gettin’ so baked.
All of us in our hats of tin foil.
Could get a real job, if not for this fog
Hey, man, pass the patchouli oil.

Wastin’ away again in Obamaville
Got my dog and headin’ out to ‘spange
The GA says Wells Fargo’s to blame
Did my part, voted hope and change 

I know the reason
I’ll stay here all season
Got no better place to go.
Here’s a new tattoo, on my left boob
A hammer and sickle drawn by the art crew

Wastin’ away again in Obamaville
Shoutin’ I’m the 99%!
Cuz I swear the ‘man’s’ to blame
But I know, it’s my college’s fault

I put up my tent
Beats paying real rent
The guy next door has an I-phone
But there’s pot in the pipe
And he’ll let me skype
To my three kids I left at home

Wastin’ away again in Obamaville
Got my dog and headin’ out to ‘spange
The GA says Wells Fargo’s to blame
Did my part, voted hope and change 

We claim that corporations are to blame
And we know, it’s the one percent’s fault

If you’d like some music for your sing along, here ya go:
