Chief Diaz’s new look raises eyebrows

Rollie Fingers. Groucho Marx. Yosemite Sam. John Diaz.

Check that. You can now scratch Chief Diaz from the Mustache Club. His upper-lip warmer, a trademark of sorts since the days before he headed the SPD, is a thing of the past.

Observers were taken aback by the chief’s new look during recent public appearances, including today’s presser on predictive policing. One member of the media said Diaz’s whisker removal gave him a stern look.

For a police chief, that’s probably not a bad thing.

Diaz didn’t comment on his new look. We do know that removal of the ‘stache was not part of the police-reform agreement between the SPD and the Department of Justice, although staff of the Seattle Police Officers’ Guild newspaper, The Guardian, will likely opine to the contrary.
