God I just read this again and I am still stupefied that this sheriff thinks he can do a better job in Spokane when he can barely manage in the goddamn county. I disagree that there is any difference in enforcing the law between city and county, it would just be nice to see some actual law enforcement for a change. what a circus we have here in Spokane and the county, it is like an episode of Jerry Springer. Nadine Woodward reporting that local massage parlors were actually rub and tug boutiques and trying to be shocked. That whole investigation and the reports of it were so offensive to my intelligence I could spit! Those stinking brothels have been in business for decades Nadine! Open up your eyes! The thousands of man hours, 14 months and how many officers to arrest 6 people? For prostitution at the local spas? Was this really a big secret? I bet every city councilman knew about the raid the day of! I wonder who refused to keep paying someone off, I mean if this was really about keeping our streets clean and putting an end to this kind of thing in Spokane. if that WERE the case then why didn´t they arrest any of the john´s? Didn´t we all learn about this in the 6th grade supply and demand. Scaring the hell out of the john;s would have gone a lot further. This was about money pure and simple.
He stands to gain more power and influence. Where does our sheriff get off by unilaterally imposing a fine on people who want to wade in the Spokane river? My heart goes out to those families that lost a loved ones. Lets exercise some common sense people. Another bite out of our freedom, I hate to say it is bad enough that we are forced to wear seat belts and ask permission to carry concealed weapons. I voted for Ozzie thinking he was a true conservative and he is always trying to grow a bigger law presence in the Inland Northwest via grants or taxes. I routinely see sheriffs cruisers parked in the driveways of private homes in Spokane. Why? Are they first responders? Not likely, that cruiser is an asset the belongs to the citizens of Spokane county and if it is not on duty it should be in maintenance not at officer Joe´s house for 6 hours a day! The mayor is working hard to restore some integrity to the Spokane PD which is more then I can say for our sheriff. I was disgusted with the handling of the Scott Creach murder. Ozzies deputies are great at gunning down 74 year old me on their private property but they get shot to hell trying to make a felony arrest. So much for the county´s excellent training programs. Thanks Ozzie, now my kids are afraid of your deputies and SPD officers.
