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.
