Portland Tribune breaks new Chasse story

Big cover story in the Portland Tribune today about a security camera video of the Multnomah County Jail on September 17 2006.

The story describes how in the video officer Christopher Humphrey and deputy Bret Burton contradict their sworn testimony later given to homicide detective Lynn Courtney. The video also shows in detail the deputies reaction to James as he is brought into the booking area, mortally wounded and hogtied.

The story by Nick Budnick is well worth reading. The video below, deep on the Tribune web site, is chilling.
