PatrickW: Spokane Will Pay For Otto Zehm Tragedy

Otto Zehm will be remembered as a good contributing citizen who unfortunately was savagely beaten and ultimately murdered by ignorant poorly trained SPD officers. The cover-up of this is pathetic.Officer Karl Thompson Jr. should be at least terminated and charged(if possible)for beating Otto unmercifully. SPD needs to get rid of all these rogue cops to ensure public safety.From guns in bars to batons..When does it stop? Spokane needs the ombudsman now and it’s laughable to think that the police guild should have anything to do in determining which “incidents” are reviewed… or not. The City of Spokane is going to pay big time for this tragedy,and rightfully so. But it won’t bring Otto back. The Center for Justice should be applauded for seeing this thru/Patrick Wheeler.
