In Case You’ve Been Hiding Out In A Cave For the Last 24 Hours…

The last 24 hours (or so), here’s a rundown of what you missed:

The prosecutor’s office decided not to file charges against Officer Ian Birk.

Councilmembers condemned the Prosecutor’s (unfortunately legally sound) decision not to file charges.

SPD’s Firearms Review Board recommended stripping Ian Birk of his badge and duties, and the department began the process of firing Ian Birk. Mayor Mike McGinn held an unwieldy press conference and lost his temper once or twice.

Then, Ian Birk resigned his position with SPD (What a twist!)

And then a couple hundred protesters marched from Westlake up to Capitol Hill. Nobody got hurt.

What a day.
