The realities of living in North Portland

Gentrification this, gentrification that. I just watched my neighbor's truck get jacked and towed away, along with a police escort. That could only mean a repossession. He's a former employee of Freightliner. A few years back, another neighbor employee of Freightliner had his house repossessed. It's not all loveliness out here in NoPo: it's also about working folk losing their livelihoods.
***UPDATE***According to "the expert" in the house when it comes to police action, it probably wasn't a repossession if there was a cop there.

I was going to ask the same thing, what is it? A drug repo?
