News I Just Don’t Know Who to Believe

Earlier today, I went to an NAACP press conference at the Urban League building on 14th and Yesler. NAACP president James Bible, again, called for the resignation of SPD chief Gil Kerlikowske and the firings of officers Gregory Neubert and Michael Tietjen. “We have a leadership problem in Seattle. A crisis of character,” he said.
An hour after the conference I got an email from the Urban League:
James Kelly, Current President of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, and Carl Mack, former President of the Seattle NAACP, will hold a press conference to comment and voice their support of Police Chief Kerlikowske:
As a longtime ally who as has always been open and accessible to the Urban League, Chief Kerlikowske deserves to have all the facts brought to light during the Mayor’s review.”
The NAACP office is in the Urban League building.
