Advantage to the Police: Why the Police Always Win in Court

Event: 
Wed, 03/23/2016 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Venue:  Traditions Fair Trade Cafe, 5th Ave and Water Street in downtown Olympia

The police always seem to win in court.  If they say the defendant assaulted them, usually that’s what the court finds.  If it looks like they used more force than necessary, the court finds there was a reason for that.     

How can they always be so right – unlike the rest of us humans?   

Could the laws actually be skewed to their advantage?  

The laws dealing with their use of deadly force are being revised.  But it’s more than that.

Come listen to three panelists with experience and passion tell you what’s behind it all, and ask your questions afterwards.  Speakers are Leslie Cushman, with the Olympia Coalition to Reform Deadly Force Laws; Jean Meyne, a former prosecutor and defense attorney, and member of the Black Alliance; and Professor Michael Vavrus from Evergreen State College.
