PORTLAND — The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon has criticized Portland Police officers for their crowd control tactics during a Monday protest, calling officers’ actions “shameful.”

Police arrested seven adults and cited six juveniles during the “Not My President’s Day” protest, including a 66-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy. Police said they used “limited deployment” of pepper spray during the protest and that officers fired nonlethal shots.

The ACLU condemned the actions in a series of tweets, saying the “indiscriminate violence against Portlanders was shameful.” The nonprofit called on Mayor Ted Wheeler to revise crowd-control strategies.
