Life Letter of the Day
posted by December 13 at 17:30 PMon
90% of the letters we get in the news department are from angry people, telling us what assholes we are for whatever.
But, every once in a while, we’ll get a coherent, friendly letter, which reminds us that not everyone is as hateful as the commentors on Slog. (personal to Sloggers: see you guys in about 15)
Dear Stranger Staff:
I would like to express my most sincere gratitude for your fearless (and completely accurate) expose of my brutal arrest on 11/27. Jonah Spangenthal-Lee deserves a lot of respect for daring to bring this injustice to the public’s attention. My most heartfelt thanks go to all the passers-by who offered their testimonials, as well.
I have been unable to raise the $10,000 bail and feeling really lousy in here. The envelope with the article arrived yesterday and has renewed my spirit and restored my faith in humanity.
Thank you for caring Seattle! How marvelous to live in a city where all don’t turn a blind eye to injustices they see.
I am determined to pursue justice in this case and am humbly in your debt for the city’s unified act of conscience. Hopefully we partially reduce the threat of police brutality by removing these psychopathic officers from duty for a while.
Very Gratefully Yours,
Currently at King Co. Jail
