It’s been many years now for the City Of Seattle to clean up their police force. Not sure what is taking them so long. I’m guessing they just keep having meetings about it but no one is brave enough to make any final decisions which may have an impact on the situation. Finally, it appears something is happening with the City of Seattle Police force. The man hired to repair, reform, and monitor the Seattle police brutality issues is Mr. Merrick Bobb. He is a hired consultant who hopes everyone involved “will roll up their sleeves” to make this process work. Merrick Bobb does have a respectable background which dates back to his groundbreaking work on the Rodney King beating.
Before beating people up on Emerald City Journal, however, I do like giving new hires a chance to do their work. I do have some concerns now, however. He made a statement saying that he “is aware of resistance but hopes to move forward”. I guess if I was in charge as the boss, people with resistance to me or my policies would be shown the door. I guess that is the difference between us. I truly hope it works out for him.
