    Seattle Police Chief John Diaz retired Monday as his department faces a court order involving use of force by officers.
    The announcement came after difficult negotiations led the Police Department to enter a court agreement with the federal Justice Department last summer to address concerns that officers were too quick to use force.

    one of the numerous reasons we must be cautious before calling the police on family and friends...
    it should be the last resort instead of the 1st option....

    Detroits police department had to enter a similar agreement. This only happens when there is a serious violation of civil rights. They were arresting people and holding them for gp. They killed a deaf mute for not responding to an order to drop a loaded rake. Even as his neighbors screamed to the four cops, "He cant hear!" I can only assume they are doing similar there
