Seattle Times letters to the editor

Police in-car-video records: City Attorney’s Office in the way

The Seattle Times got the principle right:  but the color is wrong.  It’s not the “blue wall” but rather the “L” wall:  the law department [Seattle police’s blue wall — hiding videos from open-records law,” Opinion, June 22]. Officers do not have control over whether these videos are released or not.

City Attorney Pete Holmes has made some encouraging (much-needed) progress, but it is partial:  The city’s law department has long obstructed transparency in documents, investigations and in truth.  When Holmes was elected, he cleaned house of some attorneys, presumably to weed out this type of conduct as inconsistent with City of Seattle values.

There is more weeding to do.

Mitzi Simmons, Seattle
