Did I miss this story on the Bellevue Patch (http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/bellevue-officers-under-investigation-after-allege/nSFbZ/)?
Should not the Bellevue Patch report on stories that directly affect the citizens of Bellevue, such as when those paid to respond to citizen emergenies are accused of conduct unbecoming?
Unless I missed the story on the Patch and that it has been buried so quickly, I feel that the Patch is intentionally avoiding this subject matter, probably because it is not beneficial to the City of Bellevue.
Maybe Mr Fuddlesticks (www.fuddlesticks.com) has to be involved with this story, in requesting public records from the Bellevue Police Department? Should the reporting on local police officers behaving badly be made public by a citizen or the media? I prefer the media as that would show an unbiased reporting. However, if not, citizens may have to be involved.
The involvement of Mr Fuddlesticks with the Renton Police Department has led to forced retirements, demotions, and terminations, all due to a police department trying to hide its dirty laundry. Is Bellevue PD doing the same thing?
Should Bellevue citizens be aware that if they call 9-1-1, that their officer could be one of the three that littered, refused a lawful order, taunted and teased, and were probably drunk in public? I believe this is important for the public to know that police officers are not above the same law they enforce on citizens.
