A Video To End This Miserable Week

Feels like the battle for police accountability and civil rights in Seattle was lost this week, today I just feel like the fight has been completely beaten out of me.

I would post "I Fought The Law", but we all already know the police guild always wins here in Seattle... so instead, I submit this for your enjoyment. The Clash - Know Your Rights

Have a good weekend, and stay safe out there people.

Just wanted to post some words of support - it sounds like things have been very frustrating for you. Take the weekend off and enjoy it. Please don't let the fight die out of you - you're an eloquent writer and what you do will make a difference someday (which is why the officers watch your site so much - it scares them).

Thanks!

I'm more partial to their earlier albums, but this song seemed fitting today. I believe this is from one of their last shows too.

Thanks for the comment!

Anon,

Thank you very much for the support, it's been a rough week for me and I think most of Seattle still isn't aware of how much this setback with accountability really means yet, but I think it's major... and we have yet to see what other items were watered down by the guild in negotiations.

In any case, I'm taking the weekend off unless something major pops up. So thanks for the suggestion!

...and thank you very much for the kind words! While I don't think much of my writing, you might be right judging by the rude messages I still get from police officers.

Take care.
