A message from Chief Jones

Police Chief Eric Jones leaves a message:

“I just wanted to say I appreciate the column you had regarding police tactics. As unfortate as it is, we really did follow just about anything out there regarding training in law enforcement. There are police experts we have been checking in with and they all —including the FBI, etc. — attest to the fact that, based on that situation, that was really standard training. As much as there could be.”

That is reassuring. Catching up with such experts should be part of the reportage in the incident’s traumatic aftermath. And, if the experts validate the SPD’s actions, part of the community healing.
