Months later, footage was released of Seattle Police Officers Guild Vice President Daniel Auderer joking about Kandula’s death over the phone with SPOG President Mike Solan.

In that recording, Auderer can be heard laughing as he referred to Kandula as “a regular person,” going on to say, “Just write a check – $11,000, she was 26 anyway, she had limited value.”

Welcome to Washington, where the cops routinely get away with murder even despite allegedly progressive politics.

Those Tacoma cops getting off on the murder of Manny Ellis has to be the worst miscarriage of justice I've seen in a good few years.

For there to be felony charges, prosecutors say they would have to prove that Officer Dave was consciously disregarding safety. They did have enough evidence to prove that in this case.

Dude was going 74 in a 25 while not using the sirens his vehicle was equipped with for this very purpose and killed a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk. Sounds like a fucking conscious disregard if ever I’ve heard one. If this guy were a civilian he’d be serving at least one life sentence for second degree murder already. A disgusting miscarriage of justice.

It’s not that they can’t. It’s just that they won’t…

All so he could respond to something he wasn’t needed at

Fuck SPD.

This is 100% 2nd degree murder
