A video published online revealed officers getting rid of residential or commercial property supposedly coming from unhoused Portland homeowners.
PORTLAND, Maine– A video taken by a Portland spectator has circulated on social networks, causing a stir in the community and prompting authorities to come out in
defense of its actions. The video, which was published on Twitter by the woman who recorded it, shows Portland law enforcement officer clearing what authorities later on went on to describe as “particles”from
a bus stop near the Post Office. The person tape-recording the video describes the so-called debris as being personal belongings of some unhoused Portland homeowners in the location, given the proximity to Deering Oaks Park where Portlanders experiencing homelessness have actually been collecting in recent months. The video has actually flooded the Authorities Department with remarks and messages, prompting the Department to explain their actions.
