Report suggests cop got a break. Ya think?

There needs to be a reckoning in law enforcement in Spokane County. The image is tarnished and they need to get back to being a public servant, rather than a brute bully who is above the law. True, it's a few bad apples that are tainting the whole crop. It's well past time to get in there and weed out the bad apples and the weeder needs to be someone other than the Chief or the Mayor.

An ombudsman is only going to be a bandaid. There needs to be an overhauling. How can cops who are supposed to be upholding the law, disregard it for themselves and then when they break the law, prosecuting attorneys "cut them a break."

Well, give me a break. How about you?
