Seattle Police Department: Looking For a Few More Dumbfucks
If you weigh 270 pounds, have an IQ lower than your shoe size and a red hot temper: the Seattle Police Department wants YOU. If you slam somebody’s head into a wall so hard that this person will never move or talk again — hey, no biggie. We won’t prosecute you or anything. You can just keep on enjoying life as if nothing happened.
The family of the victim — Christopher Harris — has received a $10 million dollar settlement from King County, WA. The offending thug, Deputy Matthew Paul, wasn’t prosecuted or disciplined in any way. Sounds like some nice cushy working conditions — you can inflict life-ruining injuries on a suspect (who turned out to be the wrong person) and not be held accountable.
I always figured that if I did something to cost my employer $10 million, I’d be out of a job (at the very least).
In May 2009, Christopher Harris was shopping in a convenience store in downtown Seattle. Police had been called because of a fight nearby — which Harris was NOT involved in. Several blood-spattered men ran into the convenience store around the same time that the deputies arrived. A witness mistakenly told them that Harris was the person they were looking for. Harris panicked and ran.
After running a block or two, he stopped and stood there with his arms outstretched, saying “I don’t have anything. I didn’t steal anything.” The giant inbred, Matthew Paul, pushed Christopher Harris — who was half his size — hard enough to send him flying eight feet and into a wall head first.
Now with all due respect to our newfound civility and dialed-down rhetoric after the Tucson Massacre — why is Deputy Matthew Paul still walking?
