Accountability Schmacountability

posted by on June 21 at 16:07 PM

I just got a call from Pete Rogerson, the President of the Seattle Police Department’s North Precinct Advisory Council. He wanted to talk about the “accuracy” of the media’s reporting of the Neubert/Tietjen/Kerlikowske debacle.

Rogerson and I got into an intense debate about the facts of the case, Kerlikowske’s role in the OPA investigation and OPARB’s recent lashing of the chief. Rogerson says the media isn’t giving the Department and Kerlikowske a fair shake. We’re ignoring the facts and glossing over details.

I asked him if he’d seen the video of Patterson’s arrest.

“Part of it,” he said.

Thanks for the call, dude.

Nice work, Pete.

Maybe watching two police officers rough up a man in a wheelchair for the first three minutes of the video was the only "part of it" he needed to see. Or did he skip ahead in the tape to catch a different part that the officers lied about?

nothing like supporting your team without even trying to figure out why or what your arguing against.

Qui Custodes ...

It's the GITMO fallacy that we can trust but not verify.

They so need to get over it and get with the program - news flash - they work for US!
