Multnomah County DA on why 80% of civil unrest cases have been rejected | KATU

The problem is that normally the DA probably doesn’t reject 80% of local law enforcement cases from any department.

How do DAs get by without upholding their oath of office? Why doesn’t the chief executive officer hold them accountable?

New data from the Multnomah County District Attorney’s office is providing a clearer picture of how the civil unrest cases are being prosecuted. The District Attorney’s office says 1,108 criminal civil unrest cases were referred to them between May 29, 2020, and June 11, 2021. Of those, 891 criminal cases were rejected. “We look at every case individually and based on the merits,” said Mike Schmidt, the Multnomah County District Attorney.
