Police increase security for MLK march

Spokane police have a message for anyone considering participating in the Martin Luther King Jr. Unity March on Monday: “The bad guys aren’t going to win, and they need to come down and show them that,” said Lt. Joe Walker.

Walker, who will be overseeing police presence at the march, explained the police preparations for the march during a meeting with media Tuesday.
