How Cops Turned a New...

Almost two weeks later, year-old John Johnson was standing at the same downtown intersection, singing, when the cuffs were slapped on. His backpack and skateboard were on the wrong part of the sidewalk, cops say.

Instead, as they did for Cripps and 16 other transients last year, Portland police officers leveraged an oft-criticized Oregon statute to bring a criminal charge. Johnson is now a wanted man within the bounds of Multnomah County. The project, COPP for short, is a little-known enforcement tool used to target offenders with stepped-up consequences for crimes that, authorities say, have made the city feel dirty and unsafe: But late last month—in the face of questions from the Mercury Oregon cop caught pissing how the policy had been applied—the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office acknowledged the effort had gone off the rails.

It turns out cops weren't really targeting those "quality of life" offenses. Instead, at a time when police leadership and the mayor's office were talking about how much they'd like to revive Portland's controversial sit-lie law, the cops last year essentially made COPP sit-lie's secret sibling.

A ccording to documents released by the DA's office, 17 of 19 arrests and prosecutions under COPP have been based on violations of the city's sidewalk-use ordinance.

According to a review of the arrests, the district attorney's office believes many offenders are so-called "travelers," who descend on the city every summer. But prosecutors concede there's no scientific way to make that distinction.
