""Mayor Richards was also asked why he and his police chief were only made aware of Judge Randall’s August 9th decision this week through 13WHAM News media inquiries and reports.
"I don't know what happened there quite frankly and I don't want to draw a conclusion about that until I know what happened. But it's a reasonable question and we'll have to get an answer to it," Richards responded."""
Are you kidding me Richards?? Maybe the officers should have reported to their higher ups about the Judges decision???
I didn't need to hear the decision this week, as I saw the news story, the police reports, and the video last month in the news, DIDN'T YOU RICHARDS??? If you missed last months news story where they showed the video, I'm supervised no-one in your staff didn't tell you? I'm surprised you didn't talk with the Chief about this last month. Do you guys need a Judges decision in order to hold cops accountable???
"""“We need to remember the here environment in which these men and women are operating in. They're in a difficult environment. They're dealing with people who are dangerous, who can hurt them and are committed to doing so,” Richards explained.“I'm not going to jump to conclusions about them nor am I going to jump to conclusions about the police department but as in any organization if something went wrong or if somebody didn't abide by the regulations or rules or act appropriately, we'll deal with it.”"""
WHAT???? What environment is he talking about??? Is it cause city black men are big and scary??? He he saying if those officer didn't illegally pull the guy over that their lives would be in danger??? Do I have to remind you that NO RPD officer has been killed on the job in over 50 years???? But a cop that pulls over scary black city men illegally are more likely going to get them self hurt or killed.
And "we'll deal with it"???? REALLY??? WHEN???? THIS HAPPENED A LONG TIME AGO. IT MADE NEWS LAST MONTH, AND THESE TO DIRTY COPS ARE STILL PATROLLING OUR STREETS!!!
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO DEAL WITH IT????
