Old "I Hate the POlice" Hardesty has been so quiet of late. She must be up at the Casino while Portland slowly becomes Chicago. More shootings, more crime!


I live in Vancouver now and don't go to PDX for love or money. I had to drive though PDX last weekend coming back from the coast and I drove fast.


I'm moving to a small, pleasant Texas town in April. Can't wait to get away from this idiocy.


How's that Defund the Police thing working out?
