I didn't think our resident liberals were delusional enough to defend this. So 300 suspected trouble-makers disappear from the police database. If they committed a crime against you it would be pretty significant. Keeping track of possible criminals is good police work, just like keeping track of suspected terrorists or violent white supremacists.

Even if they aren't in the gang database doesn't mean they aren't in some other database, if they are actually criminals shouldn't you be saying they should be in prison instead of just a database.

Starting Oct. 15, the Portland Police Bureau will end the 20-year practice of issuing gang member designations, which police say can lead to “unintended consequences” and a lifelong stigma even for those who have given up the gang lifestyle. Officials intend to notify the approximately 300 people on the gang list that the bureau will purge all records related to the designations, The Oregonian reported.

City officials and community activists had long urged the bureau to stop attaching the gang designation to criminal suspects, claiming the practice disproportionately impacted people of color.

It's called racial profiling and it's lazy police work.


After reading the article it does look like it makes sense - a suspected gang member versus a verified gang member is not the same thing. But I don't care if 99 out of 100 on the list are of the same race/ethnicity - IF they are verified in some way.

I assume a person is a suspected gang member because he (or she) exhibits many of the attibutes of known gang members pending final confirmation that he (or she) is, in fact, a gang member.


Has anyone seen those reality crime shows where they talk about a criminal and his crime? Sometimes they talk about the profile of the suspect.

There are those who develop profiles.

Is this not ok? Should we abandon that all together?

The database may be gone due to PC reasons; however, I can guarantee you the beat cops know damn well most who those individuals are so they can continue doing their jobs regardless of what some higher up admin decides.

To be added to the list they have to self-identify as a gang member, participate in gang initiation, commit a gang related crime, or display visibly signs of being in a gang. But you call all that lazy police work and racial profiling? Did you even read the article or are you just doing lazy message board work?

They are doing this because they realize that "being labeled a gang member can have a negative impact on someones life". Well you don't freaking say, maybe they shouldn't have gotten involved in negative activities that impact law abiding citizens lives and they wouldn't have to worry about it.

I'm sure the Oregon Corrections people are loving this. When gang members are sentenced to prison they depend on databases like this to notify them of the people they need to segregate due to gang alliances. Gang affiliation is a double-edged sword in prison. It can offer you protection in numbers but it also makes you a target from day one.

The bright side is since Oregon DOC doesn't know they are gang affiliated they will not segregate them so they will be put in general population and there stands a greater chance that they'll off each other while in prison.
