Well, I don't know..in march of 2006 Spokane Police Sgt Karl Thompson beat Otto Zehm to death...and Otto wasn't even doing anything wrong, just getting a soda and snickers at a convenience store. Oh yes, Otto was as the news put it "mentally disabled"...I don't know why they didn't just say he was "Downs"...He worked as a janitor, at least he was a contributing member of society, not a parasite
Yesterday, over 6 1/2 years later, and over a year after a federal court convicted Karl Thompson of the use of excessive force, he was finally cuffed and taken off to serve 51 MONTHS in in federal pen...for beating death of Otto Zehm! 51 months! First put in cuffs after 6 1/2 years?
Worse than that, most? of the SPD don't think he did anything wrong. One guy said Otto Zehm had "no respect"! So, in this guys view, a police officer can murder a person, shoot (as Seattle's Ian Birk did) or beat to death (Karl Thompson) anyone..they can be judge, jury and executioner, no appeals available, summery punishment for "contempt of cop". That is why the system is sick.
BTW: if you are suffering from PSD is it legal to possess a firearm???
