Police-involved shooting on North Side…


Good afternoon, Netizens...


As if we didn't collectively have enough sadness and woe to fill our consciousness, as of early this morning we have another officer-involved shooting that resulted in the death of a citizen. Although there is very limited information available to the public at this time, noon on Sunday, this much is known: at four AM, two Spokane Police Officers were responding to a report of domestic violence in a home and shot and killed a man who was armed with a knife at the 5700 block of North Elgin in North Spokane. Given the limited information being released to the news media, I do believe that does count for domestic violence, yes.


Today's shooting is the seventh officer-involved shooting in Spokane County since August, and the fifth fatal shooting. Of course, County Prosecutor Steve Tucker, recently re-elected into office by popular accord, has not ruled on any of these officer-involved shootings.


Of course, so long as we never question the manner in which justice is administered in Spokane County we may never locate it. Of course, your results may differ.
