Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Police meme about beating ‘dirty hippies’ sparks investigation”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Portland Police Bureau has launched an investigation after a ‘right wing meme’ about officers beating a “dirty hippy” with dreadlocks was included in a police training presentation.

The meme – which was turned over to lawyers for the Black Lives Matter group ‘Don’t Shoot Portland’ last year – was made public last week and showed controversial text laid over an old image of a police officer beating a protester.

The activist group is suing Portland city for using “excessive force” against demonstrators during the George Floyd protests in 2020.
