Witness statements describing attributes of this collision are here.
The Spokane Police Department has a long history of corruption, according to the true story account Breaking Blue. Today, the local paper notes the local police have a history of poor civilian oversight-which has contributed to much of the community no longer trusting either the police or local government. The City has also routinely filed suit against those who file complaints about a police officer’s behavior. See also this new item on the River Park Square scandal.
