Good evening, Netizens...
For better or for worse, come October 1 we will have a new police chief here in our delightful little burgh. That is, as soon as Dr. Frank Straub completes his online training course, nine weeks to being a certified police officer in Washington State. Minor little detail, that. This dandy picture, shot by the Spokesman-Review's own Jim Camden, doesn't do Straub any great favors, especially the Walmart tie.
However, I am not going to disparage Dr. Straub. Rather, I will wait and see how he does in cleaning up the cesspool we have come to expect of the high-ranking officialdom of the Spokane Police Department and the Spokane Police Guild.
