Kate Brown, Those Deputized Cops Have to Go

When you’re being repressed by the police — teargassed or hit with other chemical munitions; beaten and shoved; arrested with federal charges; and more — it doesn’t make you feel one bit better that it’s happening under a liberal Democratic administration, such as Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s. In a way, it’s worse: Not only should they should know better, but they probably do and are doing it anyway.

Please join me in signing this letter asking her to call off federally deputized state and local cops on November 3rd and beyond.
