Oregon to Pass Bill That Punishes 911 Callers

13/50

House Bill 3216 passed in Oregon. The measure was introduced by the state’s three black Democratic legislators and Rep. Janelle Brynum. Brynum had 911 called on her during campaigning efforts back in 2018.  If a call can be proven as racially motivated, this bill allows the victims of these calls to sue the 911 caller for up to $250.

It seems this a response to the  "Living While Black" story push. These are incidents of blacks being viewed with suspicion (I wonder why) and subsequently reported.

More to Come

Senator Jesse Hamilton (NY) introduced legislation that would make false 911 calls a hate crime.

In Grand Rapids, Michigan, local officials are considering an ordinance that could make the act a criminal misdemeanor.

It's not just an inconvenience when a police officer stops me. When a police officer stops me, I wonder whether I'm going to live for the rest of the day. 

-Lew Frederick, Senator and member of the 13%

Thankfully, these ideas have been criticized by some. 

Oregon State Senator Alan Olsen, Republican, voted against the bill. He stated it would make "our communities less safe."
