Feds furious they were not told about police training slide

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Lawyers from the U.S. Department of Justice have told Portland’s police chief and city attorney to give them all “original, unredacted” Portland police Rapid Response Team training materials, furious the city didn’t make them aware when it knew months ago of a right-wing police training slide that advocated for violence against protesters. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports lawyers are seeking the materials after the city released the PowerPoint training slide on Friday. The attorneys wrote that the city of Portland should have reported the Rapid Response Team training materials to the Justice Department when they were developed, as required by the city’s settlement with the federal agency.
