LETTER: Retain Interim SPD Chief Jim Pugel

Dear Editor,

I strongly believe that to gain the endorsement of the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Ed Murray promised them that he would go slow on police reform and fire Interim SPD Chief Jim Pugel.

If that were to happen, it would be unacceptable and would not be tolerated by communities of color, and in particular those living in the central area and southeast Seattle.

I promise you this: The streets of Seattle will be ours and every act of police misconduct, from murder to brutalizing the citizenry, will be met with retribution.

This is no idle pronouncement. Police reform must move forward and to retain Chief Pugel is to show good faith forward.

With best regards,
— Frank Irigon
