Portland Mayor says he will not reinstate officer who shot fleeing man in back with AR15 (OregonLive)
Sunday April 15th, 2012
Portland Mayor Sam Adams announced Thursday he will not honor a state arbitrator's ruling ordering the city to reinstate Ronald Frashour as a city police officer.
It marks the first time the city has blatantly ignored an arbitrator's ruling on Portland police discipline.
"It's time to stand up for our own procedures and policies," Adams said. "My view is informed by almost two decades of experience losing arbitration after arbitration after arbitration."
