City Gil Kerlikowske on KUOW
posted by June 28 at 9:02 AMon
The Seattle police supervisor whose questionable judgment was singled out by internal investigators and the police chief as leading to a violent arrest outside a Capitol Hill nightclub in 2005 has been promoted, police officials confirmed on Wednesday.
The actions of Sgt. Gregory W. Sackman outside the War Room on the night of the arrest “threatened ‘the safety of the community … and fellow officers,’” wrote a police captain in charge of an internal investigation, and led to the arrest of Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes….
Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske promoted Sackman to lieutenant last week.
It’s time for Gil to go.
The number at KUOW: (206) 543-KUOW, or (800) 289-KUOW.
