Today I had to do a small job in the Pearl district of Portland. I came out to my truck to get a few things and a cop, or so I thought, pulled up next to the car parked behind me, in the middle of the street and got out of his SUV. His grill and windshield lights were flashing. At first glance I saw a small DHS logo close to the fender. Stepping to the side a little, I saw Department of Homeland Security full size door logo. He didn't say anything after he got out of the SUV, but walked toward the front of his vehicle and then turned right around and got back into it. Weird. He then proceeded to drive down the street again. On the back of the SUV was one word, POLICE. I am confused now. Was it DHS or Portland Police? Guess the government is starting to get people used to the idea of a Federal army/police force on the streets. Where better to start than Portland, right? Just my two cents which make a nice noise when I rub them together, but annoy small children and pets.
