Resisting Arrest

SPD Dashcam Abuse

Another day, another SPD scandal.

There have been several in the past few months, but for the most part, I’ve tried to just ignore them. Nothing can be done, really. There’s little probability of change. There’s little support for change.

John Diaz remains Chief of Police, and Mayor McGinn … a mayor I used to support … is stubbornly, weirdly, inexplicably, resistant to change. Even after the Department of Justice released its shocking report stating that the SPD violates the Constitution 20% of the time they use force.
