URGENT: Final Council Vote on Ombudsman Powers? Monday, June 28 at 6:00 p.m.
Posted by Arroyoribera on June 28, 2010
If you haven’t had a chance, please read yesterday’s front page Spokesman Review article about Bev Saruwatari and her family. It is another sad story about the tragic consequences of the abuse of authority and excessive use of force by the Spokane police. This is what happens when the police investigate themselves. Our sympathies and thoughts are with Travis Melcher, the remaining son of Bev who is seeking justice and understanding.
Please support Travis and all of the other victims and families who have suffered the consequences of police misconduct by attending your last chance (hopefully) to tell city council to pass an ordinance to give independent investigative authority to the Office of Police Ombudsman tomorrow, Monday, June 28 at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall located at the corner of Post St. and Spokane Falls Blvd.
