Eugene Police Attacked By Mob Of 75 People

Eugene, Oregon – Eugene police Officers are surrounded and assaulted by people in a giant incensed crowd during a drug arrest in downtown Eugene.

Friday afternoon, Eugene police were making a drug arrest in the downtown Park Blocks area when a mob of around 75 people starting harassing them. The crowd of people were shouting obscenities and insults at the officers. They eventually ended up hurting one of them.

Police were finally able to get the mob under control after using less-lethal devices such as pepper spray and Tasers.  Without them, they would have been unable to disperse the crowd. One man was arrested for interfering with officers and resisting arrest. The only reason that others weren’t arrested appeared to be because there were too many people in the mob. One of the officers injured his hand and another suffered blow back of pepper spray in his eyes.

In the intense video below, you can see one officer attempt to arrest the man and he immediately started resisting. Two more officers jumped in to help with the arrest and the man still refused to put his hands behind his back. An officer delivered 2-4 blows to the mans side in an attempt to get his hands behind his back to no avail. When that didn’t work, the officer Tased the man. The crowd then pulled out the last resort card and started yelling “police brutality”.

The man still refused to put his hands behind his back. The man filming kept bellowing out idiotic statements like “What are they doing? Are they stabbing him in the chest??” and “how long has it been since you had sex, you piece of shit?”.

As more units arrived, the crowd grew larger and became more agitated. After several minutes, the officers were finally able to get the resisting man under control.

Eugene police Capt. Sam Kamkar stated

“What happened was an isolated incident in the Park Blocks. This is not the type of situation that we deal with everyday, where our officers are surrounded by a mob who is trying to intimidate them and what I can tell you, for people to behave that way, that was completely unacceptable. If there is an issue or problem with officers, then the right thing to do is to be a good witness and videotape the incident and let the courts handle it later, not to get into a mob mentality and charging at the officers.”

As the mainstream media continues to spread around police hate and inciting violence, officers are attacked and killed more and more every day. This is just a small example of the things that police officers face daily.

    Eugene used to be a beautiful city 10-15 years ago. However, it is now a crap hole of progressive liberalism.

  • qthush

    I would have told that guy filming once to step back then sprayed his ass good

    • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

      Unfortunately the city is so liberal that they would probably be fired the next day.

  • Itsthewater

    Dumb as kids, don’t have a clue….

  • David L

    Just 8 years ago you never heard of this kind of disregard for law enforcement. obamas children are braindead liberals that’ll call on these officers when they are in trouble. Karma’s a bitch y’all.

    • Carl Dunlap

      I’m one of your “braindead liberals,” and you’re an idiot to name an entire group under one heading. I support all LEO’S, and would have been most likely thrown in jail for physically protecting the officers doing their duty! The assumption that the entire crowd was composed of people who voted for Obama is just as imbecilic.

      • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

        It sounds like to me that you are not a “brain dead liberal”, just someone who is a member of the DNC. Nothing wrong with that, we need balance. The problem is the ultra liberal progressives that are making normal DNC members look like idiots. The same goes for the RNC. Although, the RNC RINO’s maybe a bigger bunch of hypocrites than some of the DNC. The same also goes for Black Lives Matter. They do not speak for all black’s in this country. But, they sure are heck are making them all look very bad. This is the kind of BS Obeyme is responsible for. Obeyme has managed to divide this country so well that we may get someone, who should be going to prison, as the first female POTUS.

        • Carl Dunlap

          Your post is reasonable, rational, and not the least demeaning. I appreciate seeing it. Normally, I can not be counted as a member of any party, but this year, with all the rhetoric, I am less disgusted by her than him. That does not say much for the worthiness of either candidate. I also agree with you that “ultra” anybody makes the rest of whatever group they belong to seem to be far less than Mensa members.

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            I respect your right to vote how you wish. But, I just do not understand how anyone could vote for someone who is as corrupt and exemplifies the establishment “career politician” as HRC does. I do not know how old you are, but I would suggest checking out her character and history all the way back to her Little Rock days.

            Yes, Trump has stated some very unpolished things that seem bad on the outside. However, I think that is just his inexperience as a politician, and that is a good thing. If you only explore one thing about HRC check out what she said after knowingly got a child rapist off during her lawyer days.

            Anyway, vote with facts, not PC BS and MSM lies. I hope you are proven wrong on 11/8/2016. Either way I do not think things will get better in this country for a long time after Obeyme.

            Personally I would love to have a Libertarian candidate, but Johnson is a moron. So, there goes my party choice.

          • Carl Dunlap

            I’m 65 and am aware of how terrible she is, but there are too many things that I have extremely negative feelings toward what he has said, and what he has spewed in public. I will not be voting for her, but against what I perceive to be the lesser of two evils. His proclivities terrify me. If he’s elected, I truly hope I am proven to be an utter fool, and nothing more than someone fearful of his own shadow. I do not believe it will happen that way.

          • Carl Dunlap

            She is a terrible choice for president, but he makes me extremely worried about the very future of the nation. I will be voting not for her, but against him; as I see her as the lesser of two evils. No matter which one gets in, we’ll be seeing the poisoning of America as far as I’m concerned. If he gets in, I truly hope every Trump supporter out there gets to say “I told you so,” and gets to call me an utter idiot. I do not believe there is a chance of you all being able to say that.

          • CQ

            Carl, you and others like you are not giving us a chance to say “I told you so.” The margin is so skewed against Trump the nation will likely fail before a correction can occur. I am glad I am so old I won’t have to live under a full Hillary presidency.

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            I am making the choice to vote for Trump because I think he is better for this country. Has nothing to do with the very corrupt HRC. The only reason anyone would ever call you an “idiot” is if you vote for HRC just because you dislike Trump. That is not positive way to vote for POTUS.

            Seriously, you sound like an intelligent person. Research the history of the Clinton’s. I have been around long enough to know what they have done. It will make you sick to your stomach to know what they have done. After researching the Clinton Crime Family and their foundation if you can still vote for HRC, so be it.

          • Jäger

            The more likely thing is that she will get in, and then we will be saying “I told you so” and calling you an utter idiot. Even though the press will be running cover for her, just as they’ve done for both her and Obama all along.

            You’re more afraid of Trump than a woman who as Secretary of State repeatedly sent our most classified secrets over unguarded email – even after being told her account had been hacked? More worried about Trump than a woman who blurted out nuclear weapons classified information during a debate being watched by millions? I was staffed as a classification originator for a while in my military career, and stuff like that would have seen me in jail, serving years of a felony sentence.

            More worried about Trump than a woman who took $150 MILLION from foreign governments and businesses while she was Secretary of State? Authorized the sale of 20% of our strategic uranium reserves to Russian companies controlled by Putin AFTER those companies slipped the Clintons a few million? How obvious does it have to be to recognize graft when you see it – the money has to be handed over in a brown paper bag in a poorly lit restaurant?

            That doesn’t scare you? You don’t see that as any indication that she was selling favours, access to her office, promises of future actions once elected president, etc?

            More worried about Trump than a woman who has promised to load the federal courts with judges who will support with their judgements whatever she decides to do, whether it’s the first amendment, second amendment, whatever?

            More worried about Trump that has been a pathological liar to the American people throughout her entire period of public service? Who destroys evidence that is under subpoena – an act that would get anyone other than someone whose last name is “Clinton” a long jail sentence for obstruction of justice?

            Yes, we have a very ugly choice between two New York lifelong Democrats. But the similarities end there.

            You might find him more worrisome, but I’ll pick a vulgar buffoon over an amoral career criminal who has a hole in her soul that only money and power can fill.

          • Prism Marlow

            I joined today because this was the first article that popped up on recent news – eugene police brutality search.
            My comments are neither irrelevant, incidiary or off topic.
            I find it remarkable that blue lives matter got their hands on this vid and rushed ahead to publish it with their skewed persoective. What did another officer beat down one of the kids filming and “confiscate” their phone…
            Trolls hide behind fake names btw. So sophisticated.

    • Prism Marlow

      Yes. Precicely why a crowd of UNARMED young people can be heard desperately SHOUTING.
      Because the oh so BRAVE VALIANT LAW ABIDING POLICE – ARMED with a utility belt full of weapons IN NUMBERS could not peacefully convince a man to share info with them.
      YOUR “beat their bitch ass” mentality will come back around you dumb fuck.
      Whos the fucking little bitch that needs to club someone with a camera or taze a restrained skinny kid.

            I was speaking of “Prism Marlow”, not you. But, I would love to watch you have your chance at that liberal TROLL.

          • Surf City

            My comments were directed at Marlow, Bubba…. I’d fuck him up and bad….

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            I was just clarifying sense you tagged me in the comment. Liberal TROLL’s need a little ass whooping!!! I bet most of those LEO’s would have liked the chance and them in the boxing ring, but they were professionals and controlled themselves unlike the crowd of a-holes.

          • Prism Marlow

            It would be sooooo much better if we could resolve our differences in a boxing ring the solitary reason being RULES ARE FOLLOWED ya?

          • Prism Marlow

            How fucking stupid are you that a simple intetnet search hasnt revealed that you’re foaming at the mouth for a 48yo woman.
            go away- read some books.

          • Prism Marlow

            Why yes. Yes i do. Lets start with the dead piece between your ears. Since you arent using it.

        He is speaking the truth, you need to get a life. Go back up your tree!

  • Michael L Clark

    sad that kids are weak minded, but yet again, so are a lot of adults. All I saw was resistance from the beginning. camera jerk was causing all the excitement. He should have been tazed for inciting a riot.

    • Prism Marlow

      Fyi there were at least 3 cameras rolling. There are also 9 cams on the bank and 6 more on the other commercial building nearby.
      So there will be no shortage of evidence that this was a police-initiated unlawful use of force.

  • Vic

    The police make it worse by not taking control. The punk who was insulting them should have been slammed on the ground & arrested. Charge the crowd with the dogs. Learn to use the sticks to make people move.

    • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

      You are right. But, you have to consider the city of Eugene. It is a progressive liberal crap hole. If one of these officers had actually done their job to control the crowd their ultra liberal police chief would have terminated them immediately. Unfortunately this is what our LEO’s have to deal with these days.

      • Prism Marlow

        We’ll just thank you very much to stay the fuck away from our ultra liberal crap hole then.

        • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

          TROLL!!! Thanks for joining so you could TROLL.

    • Prism Marlow

      Its not a crime to shout at someone who’s violently attacking another person UNPROVOKED. you all bring this shit on yourselves.

      • CQ

        Who are you saying was unprovoked? If a policeman is trying to make a lawful arrest he can use whatever force is necessary to make the arrest, if the person being arrested resists the officer. If you don’t fight the officer arresting you, you will not get hurt.

        • Prism Marlow

          He wasnt trying to make a LAWFUL ARREST. saddest part is they abuse the financially challenged because they think they are ill-equipped to defend themselves…
          We need a Red Baret chapter here.

  • Jim Cunningham

    Sounds like deadly force authorized to me.

    • Prism Marlow

      Omg you people are so fucking disgusting. Deadly force? Yes. Lets KILL this UNARMED young person because he exercized his rights to free speech or refused to engage with officers looking for info in an investigation he was not part of. ASSHOLES

      • Surf City

        Ass clowns like you need to be throat punched…

        • Prism Marlow

          Yawn.

        Trash, just like you!

        • Prism Marlow

          Right because like the victim you know nothing about, cause YOU WEREN’T THERE -just throw us all under your hate bus to make sure and “protect” yourself from being next. How does that fear feel when you try to sleep at night?

        • FourOne6Side

          white supremacy will along with your beloved police

  • Ace

    god damn. the fact that he was so resistant is proof enough that he was on something. No one just resists being tased.

    • Prism Marlow

      Except for someone fueled by adrenalin and righteous indignation. Fight or flight kicks in. He was probably afraid for his life.

    • Prism Marlow

      Scroll up to my response to Craxy D

  • Prism Marlow

    This is complete BULLSHIT.
    I was there at the courthouse while the news crew took statements and I observed several video angles of the entire incident from the friends of the VICTIM.
    He was smoking a cigarette when an officer approached him looking for info in a SEPERATE INVESTIGATION. This man WAS NOT PART OF THAT INVESTIGATION & WAS TOLD HE WAS NOT BEING DETAINED. he informed the officers that he was exercizing his rights and did not wish to speak with them. As he attempted to leave he was violently restrained. HAVING COMMITTED NO CRIME.
    the MEDIA isnt overblowing this. THE PEOPLE ARE WATCHING and that was no crowd of 75.
    At most it was 10 with more than 9 officers present and we do have a list of names and we will go to the auditors and he will get a lawyer because the YELLING WITNESSES had the pressence of mind to FILM the straight up UNPROVOKED INAPPROPRIATE USE OF FORCE.

    His rights were violated.
    next time there WILL be 75 people.

    That age old fucking bullshit: arrest for resisting arrest.
    SEE FOR YOURSELF HOW THEY FUCKING TAZE HIM 7 TIMES — WHILE THEY HAVE HIM IMMOBILIZED.

  • Dewey Mason

    The understanding of professional control was shown by not slapping the bitch who filmed and purposely try to incite a riot against the resisting arrest situation. Good job Eugene Police officers.

    • Prism Marlow

      He wasnt “resisting arrest” he was exercizing his constutionl right not to answer questions regarding an investigation he was not part of. Wait till they come for you. You have no idea really. How does a young man pinned to the hood of a car by three armed people being gut punched and tased 7 times qualify as resisting anything except BRUTALITY.

      • Dewey Mason

        I’ve been arrested maybe 20 times the two that I resisted I ended up bloody, why, because I can fight dam good as they had no time to “Play” with me. I learned my lesson, had three more arrest with nothing but compliance and no charges followed.

        • Prism Marlow

          R u bragging about being arrested more than 20 times.

          • Dewey Mason

            No little bitch, I’m replying to a delusional punk it seems.

          • Prism Marlow

            Ooo 4 syllables. ????????
            You say punk like its a bad thing. Yawn. What r u even doing on this thread. I imagine those miriad arrests dont make for a trusty friend of “law” enforcement thugs. Unless you are a fucking SNITCH. Im guessing yep.

          • Dewey Mason

            You are proving delusional anyway. You came to me remember.

          • Prism Marlow

            I posted a querry about your absurd reasoning backed by multiple arrests. I wouldn’t come to you (phrasing) i would AVOID you.
            Freak-show.

          • CQ

            It sounds to me like Dewey is bragging. At least he learned how to avoid getting bloodied again.

      • CQ

        Prism, the young man could have avoided being punched & tased if he had just let them put the handcuffs on him.

        • Prism Marlow

          They had no lawful right to do so. You guys just dont get it.

          • Janie Quigley-Miller

            Go back up your tree and let the officers do their job!

          • Prism Marlow

            Janie they were not doing their job in this instance. Ironically, a tree would give someone an awesome view of what really went down that day. Also please consider the many officers who were prevented from doing their jobs ELSEWHERE in the city (which is to FIGHT crime, not committ it) because they were called to restore peace to an incident instigated by the BAD JUDGEMENT of one of their own. Sad.

          • Jimmy

            Yes they do. They are the police. The police arrest people based on their discretion of an event that was a violation of the law. It is not up for debate by the suspect. By law, if you are under arrest you must comply. If you don’t, force will be used to gain compliance. Also, people can be detained temporarily but not arrested, if police need to question the person, or need more information about the person regarding their identity or behaviour. You exercise your constitutional right by not saying a word if you wish AND complying with police orders. Sorry, but that is a fact. It is not lawful in any circumstance to resist being detained or arrested.

            If they arrest you falsely, then it will be sorted out at the station and you can go home, or you will go before a court and a judge will hear the course of events to see if the charges should stay. How exactly, is in the benefit of the suspect to resist? If he went peacefully, he would have helped his situation greatly.

            How is surrounding the officers swearing at them helping the situation? How are these mobsters contributing to this environment in a positive way? How is raising the stress level of officers going to help anybody, or the person under arrest? Its not, and they are all a@@@oles.

            If you have nothing good to contribute? Go home. If want to film it? Ok, do that and submit it to the media, without being a major interference. Being beligerant and physically advancing on the officers is a very poor decision.

            Tell me exactly, how you would feel if you were an officer going about the course of your duties, and a mob appeared, and someone continually got in your face with personal insults, shouting and aggressive behaviour? It takes a lot of self control to do your job properly under this level of stress. Also, the surrounding people are enclosing on you. Will they be violent? Do they have concealed weapons? Are you keeping track of all people in your peripheral vision? Will using force to push them back be effective, or will it incite a major fight and incident? just how close will you let them come before deciding?

            You need to think about why there are laws. They ensure order, peace, and security for all. If you think what you saw was wrong, film it and report it. There are police accountability systems that will handle your claim.

            Not exactly a difficult concept to follow police instruction.

          • Prism Marlow

            Jimmy
            I really appreciate the time you took to mindfully present your perspective. Over the last few days my intense anger over the absolute injustice of this particular conflict has diffused enough that I fully realize exchanging foul language and insults with most of the lurkies on this type of thread is pointless and genuinely infectious. I honestly regret stooping to their level. I understand & agree with much of what you said but wish you would realize that the hostile response from a crowd of witnessess is cultivated by the UNLAWFULL actions of officers who abuse their “authority”.
            Improper use of force HAPPENS. As it did in this case. Those are facts. Bad judgement doesnt evaporate when you put on a uniform and a gun.
            The victim had already asked if he was being detained which he wasnt. The officer was looking for info for another investigation. The victim lawfully refused to answer.
            I would be happy to share with you my personal experience w police not long ago that fuels my motive for supporting victims of legit police brutality.
            There are many camera angles avail where you can see an officer “assisting” by repeatedly macing a skinny dude who was already fully restrained FACE DOWN by three guys who outweigh him 100 lbs ea. The look of pure malice and schadenfreude on that officers face is unmistakable. Horrifying. If uniformed SERVANTS OF THE LAW are concerned that they may face an angry mob, Perhaps they should spend more time vetting each other out and schooling the sadistic criminals within their own ranks who tip the balance of respect with their unrestrained arrogance.
            I believe there is enough info avail to aquit the victim provided he doesnt end up disappeared along the way by other officers in the rank who put comrads before the people they are sworn to protect. INTEGRITY means not trumping up a story about a drug deal to the media.
            None of this really matters anymore as the people become the media and everyone can see and decide for themselves what really happened. I watched several videos from start to finish. Not clips presented to sway an opinion. I spoke with friends of the victim.
            Traumatized and forever distrustful and suspiscious of armed thugs who dont realize authority is GIVEN not taken. Respect is EARNED it doesnt come with the job. Especially these days.

    FTA: Eugene police Capt. Sam Kamkar stated
    “What happened was an isolated incident in the Park Blocks. This is not the type of situation that we deal with everyday, where our officers are surrounded by a mob who is trying to intimidate them and what I can tell you, for people to behave that way, that was completely unacceptable. If there is an issue or problem with officers, then the right thing to do is to be a good witness and videotape the incident and let the courts handle it later, not to get into a mob mentality and charging at the officers.”

    Well, since the street demons have been given the blessing of the DoJ to do this, it IS acceptable in some circles Captain Kamkar.

      Was it the captain or the chief who described his men while defending their absurd numbers as being physically fit? many assume the victim must have been under the influence of a drug, giving him the physical strength to resist. Its called righteous indignation. Like when a mother lifts a car off a child it’s a fear/self-preservation induced adrenalin response.
      Our police force is LUCKY the original instigating officer wasnt so afraid of being disrespected he murdered the guy who lawfully refused to speak with him.
      I think the physical & psychological health of the majority of the officers in this photo is questionable.

        Apparently YOUR standard for a LEO is for them to be a contender for Muscle & Fitness and/or a regular at GNC. I’ll concede that there are some tubby cops out there but I don’t see any in the pic nor did I catch anywhere about the Chief saying something about them having to up the fitness standards so where the Hell you get off asking that?
        Ever try to discipline a small child that absolutely does NOT want to go with you? Little critters are or can be damn near impossible to get or keep a hold of. Now scale that up to an adult hopped up on pi**y attitude, adrenaline and whatever junk is in his system. “You’re under arrest, put your hands behind your back.” didn’t work. Next step in the Use of Force Continuum or whatever the Hell it’s called now calls for overpowering the subject. That includes pain compliance (wasn’t working) so the only other option was to call for backup and dogpile on the tweaker.

    Hard to be ready for the mob to rush in. But if the police cant maintain order then why are they are in the first place.

    For those of u following my comments on this article (some of which are now “under review” by moderators, because I was flagged for the same behavior others are engaging in here…regrettably),
    I do admit to lashing out when i feel provoked but im actively seeking the pardon of any I’ve offended by insult or threatening language.
    Not because i care wether or not my posts remain, but because i want to be a better person. One who seeks to find common ground with people im in conflict with to resolve the issue intelligently and peacefully. This non-violent protest stance is a constant challenge for an irish-italian menopausal anarchist. I do want to point out that DONUT OPERATOR begins this article with the false statement that police officers were being assaulted. Look up the definition of assult. Being shouted at by an angry group of witnesses does not constitute assult. Macing, punching, and tasing a restrained man does. I am not a disrespecter of police officers in general. As a small biz owner, I have relied on them repeatedly to assist on various occasions when the law was being broken. I am, from a recent experience however, much like the one in question, now extremely distrusful of most of them, and would more likely call a fireman or the local militia should i need assistance, than risk being assaulted and murdered for exercizing my constitutional rights.
    We are being conditioned to be afraid of each other. To hate each other. To fight and kill each other for personal ideals fed by greed and fear that are archaic and destructive to our species and the entire planet. Humans collectively have the technology and the resources to build a sustainable future PEACEFULLY. I dont care how much any of you think you hate me. You simply dont know me as I do not know any of you. So, all stereotypical judgements aside, i regret that anything i said caused any of you to feel hated or that your perspective doesnt matter. We are all just receptors for the universal consciousness to subjectively view itself.
    Peace to all the scared angry people -especially the armed ones who’s job it is to KEEP THE PEACE. Also. Find me on FB if you are interested in starting a local chapter of peace keepers. There are many selfless people who feed and advocate for the poorest community members -connecting those with physical, mental and emotional challenges to resources, who could probably diffuse volitile encounters with the police by mediating in circumstances like this. I invite continued dialogue by fb msg if anyone is so inclined but i will not spend anymore time here trying to convince people of a truth they are incapable of comprehending.
