Seattle Police Department has already lost 41 officers this year, as a result of low morale, fear of doing their job due to lack of support from the city council, and orders to ignore some crimes. The police union called the situation “a mass exodus” and said they believe it will have a direct impact on public safety.
Protests erupted outside of the East Pittsburgh Police station over a17-year-old boy, Antwon Rose, who was shot and killed by a police officer as he ran from a traffic stop related to a separate shooting. The car matched the description of a vehicle being sought in a separate nonfatal shooting. Two weapons were recovered from the car.
