First, I want to restate my support for transcribing and publicly releasing the grand jury proceedings of the Portland Police fatal shooting incident on January 29, 2010.

My support for recording and publishing after-the-fact grand jury proceedings regarding law enforcement use of lethal force dates back to a bill I testified in support of during the 2007 legislative session, to increase transparency for our community.

I also want to ensure Portlanders that I will be closely watching the outcome and timeline of the Portland Police Bureau's internal investigation.
