Woman Calls Police on Black Oregon Lawmaker Campaigning In Her Own District

County deputy who responded to a 911 call from one of her constituents who thought she looked suspicious as she was canvassing in a Clackamas neighborhood Woman Calls Police on Black Oregon Lawmaker Campaigning In Her Own District

Rep. Janelle Byrun, a Democrat running for a second term this fall, said she had been out for about two hours meeting with residents in the Portland suburb of Clackamas on Tuesday when she was approached by a county deputy as she typed notes into her cellphone.

The typing, Bynum wrote in a Tuesday Facebook post, was just her "keeping account of what my community cares about!"

In her interview with the Oregonian, Bynum said she told the deputy that calling 911 over nonemergency incidents takes officers away from more urgent matters. The politician, who has promised to improve school funding, has since praised responding police for their professionalism in dealing with the matter.

Overall, Bynum said she feels the best way forward is "to start talking to each other and stop assuming the worst in other people".

The sheriff's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.

It was just freaky. Bynum spoke on the phone with the caller, who apologized to her. The woman claimed she called the police for the "safety of the neighborhood" and wouldn't say where she lived.

Bynum is up for reelection in November and said that she was taking notes on her phone from conversations with constituents.

"It was just weird. she stated, 'It boils down to people not knowing their neighbors and people having a sense of fear in their neighborhoods, which is kind of my job to help eradicate".

Bynum tells The Oregonian/OregonLive that the deputy told her a woman called police because the lawmaker appeared to spend a long time at homes.

State representative Janelle Bynum was going door-to-door to meet constituents earlier this week. Police were called to check on a boy mowing a lawn in OH, a girl selling water in San Francisco, a student napping at a dorm at Yale, two businessmen waiting for a meeting in a Philadelphia Starbucks and a family barbecuing in Oakland in recent cases. There were the two men sitting in a Starbucks in Philadelphia, the Yale graduate student sleeping in her dorm's study lounge, the two men having a cookout in Oakland and the women checking out of an Airbnb in California - all of whom had the cops called on them.
