She may have a bona fide offer…

Good evening, Netizens...,

King County's candidate for Sheriff John Urquhart announced Tuesday morning that if he is elected to office, he will appoint former Spokane Chief of Police Anne Kirkpatrick as his chief deputy. One of my local wags immediately opined that Kirkpatrick's potential job as a model for Vanity Fair probably didn't work out for her. My sage rebuttal was that I thought Chief Kirkpatrick was considering a modeling job for the lingerie department at JC Pennys, but based upon Urquhart's statement yesterday, it appears neither one of us were right. (sigh) I had such high hopes.


Former Chief Kirkpatrick retired from the frolicsome gambol with The Spokane Police Guild and settled back into her home in Seattle prior to this point in time. In the meantime, the inexorable wheels of justice simply grind onward, as the Department of Justice is now considering investigating the King County Sheriff's Department and how they investigate use-of-force complaints against deputies.


I wonder if they will have any different results to this potential investigation as compared to the Spokane Police Department? However, in their favor, at least they didn't have fifty officers stand and salute one of their accused brethren, now did they?
