Report Police Misconduct

– The owner of an anti-police misconduct website that invites people to post their stories about bad experiences with law enforcement is now the plaintiff in a police brutality lawsuit against Multnomah County, its sheriff, and several deputies. founder Cyrus Sullivan has attempted to raise awareness of this lawsuit with the hopes of finding more people that claim to be victims of the defendants in the case, but so far at least one press release distributions service (PRWeb) refuses to do business with him.

Sullivan tried hard to comply with PRWeb’s policies for press releases about legal issues. He re-wrote his release several times to comply with requests from the PRWeb staff. When he finally thought that he had submitted a release that followed their directions he was told that PRWeb would not do business with him anymore. Fearing similar censorship from other press release distributors, Sullivan has elected not include any information about the case other than the fact that it has been filed. That is because after following instructions from PRWeb, that is all he could do.

PRWeb would not allow Sullivan to quote from him complaint even with proper attribution. He could not quote an expert witness report because PRWeb believes that any evidence could potentially be refuted in court, so they do not want to distribute it. Sullivan was also instructed to remove references to sources in the news media that have already covered cases of his. The directive was given even though PRWeb instructs users to cite such fact checked news sources. In closing, Cyrus Sullivan has filed a lawsuit alleging police brutality, but cannot say more in a press release.
