Link for more detailed info and the video is posted in the story as well.
Basically, Officer Ian Birk fatally shot Indian Woodcarver John Williams in broad daylight. He pulled up behind Mr. Williams and ordered him to " drop a knife" from 30ft away. seconds later he fired off 4 rounds into Williams back and side. Williams was nearly deaf and the knife was found closed, a 4" legal blade and for anyone wondering, those knifes can't just collapse on themselves to shut.
So basically tomorrow DA Sattenburg and Mayor McShcwinn are announcing that no criminal charges will be pressed against Birk. It is absurd, this man just got away with murder. Sure there will be a civil suit, but this man needs to be in jail. The news was released at like 10pm tonight and protest are already being organized, so things will probably get pretty interesting.
Few other examples of SPD brutality over the past year.
