PORTLAND -- About 200 activists gathered outside City Hall at noon Monday, protesting the potential reinstatement of Portland policeman Ronald Frashour.

Frashour shot and killed the unarmed Campbell in Northeast Portland in January, 2010. Frashour was later fired; the city said he didn't follow protocol on the use of deadly force.

A state arbitrator ruled last week that Frashour had followed the rules and should be returned to the force and get back wages.

The rally was organized by the Albina Ministerial Alliance, which first called for Frashour's dismissal.

Portland Mayor Sam Adams said the city was studying it's options following the arbitrator's decision, including the possibility of an appeal. Those involved in the Fire Frashour Campaign said it's not enough.

The system is not capable of reforming itself and not capable of preventing police from killing young unarmed black people, and incapable of creating real consequences, said the campaign s Geoff McNamara.

Activists at City Hall chanted Frashour has got to go! and When do we want justice? We want it now!
