The Portland Police Department reportedly removed the tattoos on the face of Tyrone Lamont Allen, a 50-year old Black man, using Photoshop to make him look like the accused suspect in a string of bank robberies in April 2017.
They say this man (Tyrone Allen) robbed several bank but the tellers of the bank describe the man with out tattoo’s. So the Portland police department decided it was a good idea to photo shop the tattoo’s 0ff his face of the supect to make him look more like the criminal that robbed that bank.
The pulblic reaction was not a good one at all. the public acused the Portland Police of being lazy and and wanted an easy collar to the crimes that happened in Portland.
The Police decided to bring in the witnesses that they acuired and show this photo shop pic with the tattoo’s on the face of Tyrone Allen and they still said it was Tyrone Allen who robbed there Bank.
They are also saying that Tryone Allen could have put make up on his face to cover the tattoo’s . The Police also said that all they did was cover up the tattoo’s like electronic make up to id this man.There’s no telling of how the police collared there suspect will hold up in court and if the suspect civil rights where violated because of this unorthodox way of Policing this case.
The police did not lose there jobs or suffered any penalty for there actions at all despite the way they did it . But, i must say that the public was not happy at all for the way the police handle this case.
Photo shopping supects is an ill practice and can be a Dangerous one to the public.Police can start photo shopping anyone one they want to fit there narrative to any case . This practice can have a negative affect on the public and the further hatred toward police in any state using this practice.
The Police can take advantage of this kind of thing to send innocent people to jail just to meet there arrest quarter for the month. It is a wide range of terror that can be implemented if this is to become a normal practice in policing witch i do not recommend.
