Seattle Times letters to the editor

Deputy vs. deputy

Soon we will see

The Seattle Times’ story about the trial of a King County deputy who allegedly beat a person while in handcuffs gave me confidence in the print media to seek justice on the side of righteousness, again [“Civil-rights trial will pit deputy against deputy,” News, Dec. 6].

I remember how The Seattle Times tried to help Tami Silicio on April 18, 2004, after she took photos of 22 coffins with American flags on them, on a homebound cargo plane from Iraq.

She lost her job over the photo.

I hope many people will save the fine report written by Mike Carter and take note of what the sheriff does about it. We will soon learn who is really in control of the King County sheriff deputies. It would be nice to know how many stand behind the defendant for his actions, and what happens to the judge, jury and witnesses against the defendant, if the verdict is guilty.
