ACLU chapter news
Southern Oregon Chapter
In January at a press conference in Medford the Chapter denounced police tactics used against anti-Bush demonstrators in Jacksonville on October 14th while President Bush was visiting. After a lengthy investigation by the Chapter and ACLU volunteer attorneys, ACLU concluded that police used excessive force to clear lawful demonstrators from the vicinity of the Jacksonville Inn where Bush was having dinner.
The Chapter has written letters to the government agencies involved urging them to investigate this episode, take corrective and disciplinary actions as warranted, and issue a public report detailing those actions. In addition, ACLU volunteer attorneys are considering filing suit against the involved agencies.
