Remember that campaign stop where Obama used the rock band to get a giant crowd? Well there is more to the story. Expecting a large crowd the campaign set up portable toilets, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A POLICE MEMORIAL . The Police are rightfully pissed and want an apology. I guess we know now that Obama’s version of change includes a loss of respect for those who died protecting us:


Officers: Memorial Used As Porta-Potty Pit Stop At Obama Rally PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police officers have asked for an apology after they said organizers of a Barack Obama rally set up Porta-Potties on a memorial honoring fallen officers.Earlier this month, 75,000 people gathered in Waterfront Park in downtown Portland to hear Obama speak at a pre-primary rally. View The Photo From The Rally | Watch FOX 12 Report Officer Thomas Brennan, a seven-year veteran with the Portland Police Bureau, said he was happy to help at the rally after being called in on his day off. “On short notice, a lot of people had to cancel trips. But they were glad to do it,” Brennan said. “It was very memorable, in more ways than one.”Brennan, who controlled the crowd near the Portland Police Memorial, noticed several Porta Potties set up in the middle of the memorial. Brennan had been at the site five days earlier for an annual memorial service and a flag was still set at half mast on the day of the rally.”There was plenty of room elsewhere so space wasn’t an issue,” Brennan said. “So someone used some really poor decision making, whoever elected to put them there. I mean, it’s somewhat hallowed ground, I guess you could call it.”

After several days, Brennan attached a photo he took to a letter and e-mailed it to dozens of media outlets and the Obama campaign.Brennan said officers haven’t heard back from the Obama campaign. He said someone owes an apology to the families of the fallen officers.”Not for a moment do I think that Mr. Obama had anything to do with this,” Brennan said. “But somebody at his campaign at a local level made the decision to put them there. And I just want an acknowledgement: ‘Hey, we made a mistake.'”

A representative with the Obama campaign responded Wednesday morning and said the Porta-Potties were placed at the memorial because of a safety issue for wheelchair access.Teri Sorenson said there was no disrespect intended and the campaign had not responded because local offices have shut down until Obama becomes the official democratic candidate.
