The riot-control team at the Portland police department decided to quit en masse after another cop was indicted for slugging a photographer. 

About 50 members of the department’s elite Rapid Response Team voted to resign at a union meeting Wednesday, days after the indictment of officer Corey Budworth over the Aug. 18 incident, Fox News said in a report Thursday.

“Unfortunately, this decorated public servant has been caught in the crossfire of agenda-driven city leaders and a politicized criminal justice system,” the Portland Police Association said in a statement earlier this week.

The RRT team members, who include detectives and sergeants, serve in the detail on a volunteer basis and “will continue in their regular assignments,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement Thursday.
