Atrocious cowardice all around

King County, Washington Sheriff's Deputy Matt Paul is still being allowed by his boss, Sheriff Sue Rahr, to prey on the public despite years of documented excessive force complaints as well as warnings by his supervisors to "avoid arresting people simply because they challenged his authority or were disrespectful", and after Paul recently cost local taxpayers a 10 million dollar settlement after slamming an innocent man into a wall, causing massive brain damage and crippling him for life.

KONG-TV has the details:

"I can't turn around and fire a deputy because I have concerns."

A 2000 page record of abusive and out-of-control behavior and a multimillion-dollar payout are now simply dismissed as "concerns".  Way to protect and serve your public, Sheriff.
