Portland, Michigan: 'We're not Portland, Oregon'

PORTLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — The Portland Police Bureau in Oregon is taking criticism not only because a black man was shot and killed by police there last month, but also for how officers handled ensuing protests.

But some of the complaints aren't reaching the right city. Some 2,300 miles away, they're coming in to Portland, Michigan.

"Over the past couple days, we certainly noticed a spike," the city manager of Michigan's Portland, Tutt Gorman, told 24 Hour News 8 Friday.

Some complaints have come by phone, but many are on Facebook.

"I'll be damn sure to avoid visiting. You are truly useless. Letting mob rule? Why are you even there?" one of those posts read.
