Bad Stuff Happening Downtown: Bend police chief provides update

Hooligans abound in Drake Park and downtown Bend.

We're talking real bad stuff. Like "skateboarding." And "disruptive behavior," which is no doubt due to the "alcohol and drug abuse" that's been going on in downtown Bend.

So said new police Chief Jeff Sale to the City Council last Wednesday in a "Downtown Public Safety" update. Sale highlighted the above three activities as the force's biggest public safety concerns.

I was shocked. Skateboarding in our town? I never... I may start looking into moving somewhere safer, like Oshkosh, Nebraska (seriously, follow the link. It looks/sounds very peaceful).

Yep, Oshkosh sounds safe. I bet there's no skateboarding there.

I've got to get out of here.
