I found a local police misconduct website while surfing the internet. Great stuff.
Titled, “Injustice In Seattle,” the site is devoted to increasing public awareness of police misconduct and detainee abuse, in addition to providing support for victims of police misconduct and detainee abuse. The blog covers misconduct issues in all cities, counties, and towns in Washington State.
Don’t get me wrong. Police work is extremely difficult. The hours are long, people are unruly, etc.
However, these websites are helpful. Let’s face it: police misconduct happens. It’s incumbent on us to educate ourselves on how to identify it, as well as how to respond when it happens.
