Mistaken identity? ‘Meth addict says cops can’t use Portland Fire & Rescue stations’

A Portland, Ore., television station has apologized after accidentally reporting that Portland Fire Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty is a meth addict.

The mistake occurred over the weekend when Hardesty, who looks like a meth addict, announced that Portland Fire & Rescue stations will no longer be used by “law enforcement of any kind.”

“To ensure that there is no confusion in regards to our role in providing safety to the residents of the city of Portland, Fire Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has directed that no PF&R station will be used by law enforcement of any kind, to include Portland police, for any tactical operations until further notice,” said the statement by PF&R.

Nowhere in the statement did PF&R allege that Hardesty is a meth addict. However, the KATU chyron — the text-based graphic overlay displayed at the bottom of the screen — mistakenly said “Meth addict says cops can’t use Portland Fire & Rescue stations” while the studio green screen displayed an enormous image of Hardesty, who really does look like a meth addict.

“KATU-TV Channel 2 apologizes for thinking that Commissioner Hardesty looks like a meth addict,” said a statement from KATU management.

The Commissioner, who looks like a meth addict but is not a meth addict, had no comment.

  1. Is it true that not-a-meth-addict also ordered that any police attempting to use a PF&R station will be arrested immediately?


    1. It is not true that the not-a-meth-addict Fire Commissioner said she would arrest the cops. But she did say cops were setting fire to Portland, which leads me to believe she may be a real meth addict.


      1. She looked less gaunt in younger photos, but her attitude comes down to “F. the police, just let druggies do their drugs and criminals do their crimes,” especially if they’re black and haven’t actually killed someone – except a cop..

        She’s OK with the riot mantra of “property can be replaced, lives cannot,” failing to understand that criminals are a dime a dozen and most people want them gone.
