@2 - Thanks for that background info on the suspect. He TOTALLY deserved what he got then. Including the partial blindness. I'm sure that the DA dropped the case against him erroneously, and I mean, who really believes that "innocent until proven guilty" bit anyway?

@3,2 Yeah, it's right there in Seattle's penal code. The penalty for being accused of hit-and-run is to immediately get beaten, and then have the cops cover it up as if it weren't actually supposed to be that way. (You should see the penalty if he's actually convicted!)

Everything is working as intended, nothing to see here.

Can anybody check the IP address of the troll and see if it's coming from within the SPD. I'd really hate it if my tax dollars supported cop trolling.

Cop trolling for sure. If you take a closer look at his record on WA courts JIS it is obvios the cop troll is spinning a grain of truth into a mountain of bs. Three counties indeed. One MUNICIPAL court case in Pierce county ten years ago.

@9: Seems a bunch those court appearances are for failing to pay bills, and at least one is a bogus, unsustained charge trumped by a cop who really, really sucks at his job. Can't wait to see his life get all fucked up when this video is released.

P.S. You know who hates the Constitution? Shitty cops, shitty cop.

SPD sure has itchy fists, feet, mouths and guns don't they?

@13 They do. In the same way they like the Bible.

It's a shame someone cannot show some goddamn leadership and deal with this shit before it becomes a public outrage. Fuck PDRs and lawsuits, the moment a supervisor saw the video (assuming the descriptions are accurate) those officers should have been shitcanned or severely punished. The SPD should then have publicly apologized.

Not that fucking hard really.

Instead a guy who, if the trolls are to be believed, is a pretty shitty character, is going to become filthy rich all because the SPD and Mayor's office area bunch of morons.

The entire SPD needs to be shitcanned. Or shit on. Something like that. Though it seems their shitting on themselves well enough as it is.

I hope McGinn has enjoyed his one term as Mayor. Is there anyone in Seattle he hasn't pissed off?

@12, that shut him up right quick dinn'it?

Yo piggly-wiggly, come back! Your childish attempts at slandering a victim of police brutality was speaking volumes about your 'profession.'

"Once completed, Mr. Egan’s will receive another copy of the same video."
So is it me or does that sound like you can release the video from discovery to the general public?

Regardless of what the police suspected this man may have done, it's not their job to sentence the suspect to any form of punishment. The surveillance video doesn't really show enough to say what actually happened. Innocent until proven guilty applies to both the suspect and the officers. The key will be the dash cam video. What would really be a shame is if the guy actually did hit and run the bicyclist, and the police decided not to pursue a conviction to cover up wrongdoing by the officers. Since the dropped hit and run case wasn't tried, charges could be filed again if evidence came to light, even if the officers are charged and found guilty of brutality.

If they only receive ~4000 requests a year, then I'm personally responsible for 1% of their public disclosure requests. That seems kind of wack.
