This person may 'CHOOSE' to just play music on this block but 90% of the kids that show up in downtown Portland during the summer are just here to beg money off tourists for drugs. And aggressively. I work here. I know. And there is ZERO police presence on this block to stop them. Go one block in any direction and Portland Police are there. But 3rd and W Burnside is like a ghostown for cops. And a free for all for drugs. It's only gotten worse since this documentary was made.
That is not your sister, that's my friend Austin and he was in Portland using music to rescue junkies from the Portland dope scene. He told the crew that.
Just because someone travels or is houseless doesn't mean they are a junky fiend!
Some people actually CHOOSE to not conform to your failing society.
this particular guy is not really homeless or a drug addict he just likes to travel around and sing he is a great and very talented guy and also my favorite pirate
my 6 year old daughters mom has been up in Portland hooked on that crap for the last 3 years.. its Awful to see first hand all the heart break this plague has caused...
That is my sister in the picture. If this episode helps save at least one person from going down her path I will be grateful. Hopefully it is her!
