PORTLAND -- A legally blind and partially disabled woman is suing the Portland Police Bureau over claims of police brutality.

Eunice Crowder (pictured) says four officers roughed her up and threw her to the ground on June 9.

The officers were called when she reportedly refused to allow city workers to clean up yard debris. The 71-year-old says she was hit with pepper spray and stung by a taser gun. Her prosthetic eye reportedly fell out during the incident.

I know it's wrong, but it's the "Her prosthetic eye reportedly fell out during the incident." line that hooked me into this one. That and that it's only a few hours South of here. Sometimes love this joint, sometimes just wonder what everybody's smoking.
