KHQ Right Now - News and Weather for Spokane and North Idaho |
Dr. Frank Straub has found a new home in Spokane Washington. I wish him well and pray for the citizens of Spokane and the officers he will manage; they'll need it. I genuinely hope Straub is well-liked and respected by those he supervises and serves, however history reveals the opposite is likely to happen. The character and "leadership style" of Straub isn't likely to change no matter what city he works for.
The embedded video is a bit long, but very interesting. There is a lot of talk about "civilian oversight, police action plans, innovative policing models, being the best police department in the northwest...etc." We've heard all the same platitudes in Indianapolis, but IMPD was "CORRUPT"; so I wonder what's wrong with Spokane Police Department. I really encourage you to watch the video in its entirety because misery loves company. However, the KHQ6 post article comments make up for the painful video. Enjoy, and Happy Weekend
