CHS: What SPD chief told East Precinct community

Seattle Police Chief John Diaz answered questions from East Precinct community members Thursday night in a public appearance at Seattle University that comes as prosecutors decide whether to charge one of Diaz’s officers with a crime in the shooting death of JT Williams and the Justice Department says it has launched a review of violence and racial bias within SPD.

“Sometimes we make huge mistakes,” Diaz said Thursday night. “Those are the ones you have to be held accountable for.”
