Supreme Court refuses to hear Rutherford appeal

Court system mishandled case

I wonder how Rutherford’s attorneys would react if they were mugged or robbed by a private citizen and the Seattle Police Department did not take the tactic it did against Rutherford. [“Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal of $1 verdict in SPD case,” NW Tuesday, June 18.] Is security worth more than the $50,000 they seek?

Daily, I am bewildered as to why people on the street seem unconcerned about illegal activity around them. Could it be because of how Rutherford’s attorneys and the court system handled this case?

Jim Morris, Renton
