I knew Seattle couldn’t stay out of the count for long. Just look at their previous instances in the count. Five full incidents and an honorable mention. They barely made it over one month since the last post.
A Seattle police officer has been caught on tape talking about “making
up” evidence while two wrongly arrested men sit in jail. It’s the latest
shocker uncovered by a KOMO 4 Problem Solver investigation into the
Seattle Police Department’s vanishing dashcam videos.
Well maybe they did something to cause the officer to believe they did something wrong or were involved in the initial incident.
But Officer Brad Richardson, the arresting officer, never questions the
two about an assault. Instead, Richardson makes what’s called a felony
stop, taking cover behind his car door with his gun drawn.
Interesting, he claims they ignored his commands yet they continued walking towards him. Yeah who walks towards a police officer with a drawn gun. The whole thing stinks to high heaven, doubly so as this is the department that has a habit of disappearing dash cam video or delaying it to protect officers.
State Sponsored Criminal Count #258: Officer Brad Richardson
Because you can arrest whoever the hell you want. If they’re innocent, just make something up, you’re a cop, who’s the jury going to believe?
