I'm not surprised by this. This is a backwater town where the population has a history of incredible. A friend of mine in Oregon's step father was on this police department and he used to go on calls with him. Back then if people caught Native American's drunk and passed out in their town they would occassionally sledge hammer their heads to the sidewalk. It doesn't surprise me that one of their finest would feel he had the right to execute a civilian who was in non compliance. Do these guys think they are our God's or something? They enforce the law - that's it. This guy should be dragged down the main street of Everett behind a car and stoned. In this post 911 world the cops are off the hook and need to be reigned in. The enemy is out there. The enemy is not the people they are sworn to PROTECT AND SERVE
