A Democrat City Commissioner In Portland Who Is Pushing To Defund The Police Calls 911 On A Lyft Driver


The hypocrisy of the far-left is at an all-time high.

Portland’s City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty who has repeatedly advocated defunding the police ironically called the police on a Lyft driver who refused to roll up his window.

The Lyft driver refused to close his window due to Lyft’s Coronavirus Safety Guidelines that states atleast one window must stay down.

Hardesty didn’t like the Lyft driver’s decision and started verbally abusing the driver until he finally had enough and canceled her ride.

The Oregonian obtained the 911 dispatch call listen to it below:

The New York Post covered the strange event and share these details:

A Portland politician pushing to defund the police, claiming that most calls are not real crimes, recently called 911 herself — over an argument with a Lyft driver who refused to close his window.

City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty — who also oversees Portland’s emergency dispatch system — has repeatedly campaigned to cut police budgets and shift money elsewhere, arguing that the force is inundated with unnecessary calls that don’t involve crimes, according to The Oregonian.

She again called for an $18 million cut last Thursday — four days after she dialed 911 over a ride-share driver who was following Lyft’s coronavirus safety guidelines to keep a window open, the paper said.

Her 911 calls, first obtained by The Oregonian, show her repeatedly demanding the force send out officers — even though the dispatcher insisted no crime had been committed.

Fox News added to the story also:

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, who has pushed for police budget cuts, called 911 after a Lyft driver canceled her ride and asked her to get out of his car.

Lyft driver Richmond Frost told two Portland Police Department officers, who responded to the scene on Nov. 1, that Hardesty “became irate when he refused to roll the windows up,” according to a dispatch report,

Frost pulled into a Chevron gas station, canceled the ride and apparently asked her to leave the vehicle. Hardesty allegedly said she refused to exit the vehicle because “it was cold and she was a woman and alone.”

She called 911, telling the operator: “Well, I’ve got a Lyft driver that decided he would just drop me off at a filling station. Well, I’m not getting out of the car, in the dark, at a filling station, not happening. All because I asked him to put the window up. I’m not leaving.”

The dispatcher explained that it’s Frost’s property, no crimes were committed, and only she can order another Lyft. Officers were sent to the scene.

Hardesty earlier in the month claimed 911 calls are mostly unnecessary, and now she literally called the police on a driver for not rolling up his window.

We can’t make this up folks.

The far left is clearly out of their minds.
