Prosecutors felt “that although what Sgt. Bunch did was a technical violation of the law and at times obviously unprofessional, that he felt their job was to go after criminals and not law enforcement officers demonstrating a temporary lapse in judgment.” So we have two systems in Spokane, one for “criminals” and one for law enforcement officers! The officers involved in the Zehm case, Olsen, Bunch! Where will this end, where will it go?
It is not enough to allow an officer to resign, if they break the law they need to be prosecuted. I wonder if the next criminal arrested in Spokane can make a deal with the prosecutor that he/she just had a “temporary lapse in judgment”?
