Seattle has a brilliant solution to their many police problems — refuse to release police dash-cam footage, then [url=http://www.abajournal.com/files/COMPLAINT_FOR_DECLARATORY_AND_INJUNCTIVE_RELIEF_FINAL.pdf] sue [pdf][/url] the person requesting said footage.

KOMO News sued the city of Seattle after public information requests for police dash-cam video were not fulfilled. The suit alleges violation of the public records law.

But criminal defense attorney James Egan never expected the city would preemptively sue him just for asking for police dash cam video.

"Shocked. I am shocked," he said. "What the police department is saying is if you make a request for public documents, ultimately you will be sued."

I guess you don't need to make it against the law if you can sue them right? - TS

What do you expect out of a crappy police department who wants to cover their ass. And they can get away with it in liberal King County.

Dirty cops and corrupt politicians.

A suit for a declaratory judgment is not the same as suing someone for money damages. They are asking the court for a legal opinion before they act.

"The City further seeks injunctive relief under RCW 42.56.540 enjoining the release of copies of the subject in-car videos to the public by a law enforcement agency subject to this section until final disposition of any criminal or civil litigation which arises from the events which were recorded."

i agree with your statement that it's different.

But what they are asking is criminal imho.

I guess you don't realize the integrity of the other officers to actually do something about the problem cop and not conceal his acts. Instead of supporting the good cops, you slam the entire agency because of one idiot even THEY (other cops) didn't support.

The CHIEF of POLICE needs to take the responsibility for the DEPT's FAILURE. Mind you that he's been at the job since May 7, 2009 (as the interim chief) and officially since Aug. 16, 2010. And, he has also been the Deputy Chief overseeing the Operations Bureau (just prior to being the CHIEF). So, no doubt, he is familiar (or should be) with the goings on, at the patrol officer's level.

Aloha, Mark

Have you been watching the track record of SPD over the past 2 years? Maybe if there was more evidence of them policing their own, I would have a different opinion. Instead all I find is ass covering. SPD arrested one of their own because he was corrupt. Good, thats a step in the right direction. That doesnt mean that all the shit that has been uncovered is any less fucked up. Now, I will also note that I have had a good amount of interaction with SPD and have never seen anything but professional conduct. I honestly do hope that SPD turns themselves around. Like I said I interact with them quite a bit and want nothing more than them to be the envy of police forces across the nation.
