Spokane Police Abuses: Past to Present

The People of Spokane vs. Law Enforcement Abuse, Impunity, Corruption, and Cover-up

Catalog of SpokanePoliceAbuses Blog Posts — July 17, 2007 to February 4, 2008

Posted by Arroyoribera on February 4, 2008

Appropriately, and as hoped, the post entitled “Laying out the case…” is the most read during the seven months since I created the blog Spokane Police Abuses: Past to Present — The People of Spokane vs. Law Enforcement Abuses, Impunity, Corruption, and Cover-up.

“Laying out the case…” is a compendium, by no means exhaustive, of incidents of importance in the history of the Spokane Police Department and its reign of scandal, murder, corruption, cover-up, impunity, arrogance, lying, pension-padding, spying, and stupidity.

Your comments, corrections, suggestions, and additions are invited. Please write me at SpokanePoliceAbuses@gmail.com.

This index list all SpokanePoliceAbuses posts from the most read to the least read. By the way, some of the infrequently read posts are quite interesting!
