Seattle union head criticized for U.S. Capitol riot comments

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s police accountability office is investigating tweets by the head of the city’s police officers union that suggested Black Lives Matter and other liberal activists share blame for last week’s violence at the U.S. Capitol. The Seattle Times reports that the Office of Police Accountability has opened an internal investigation into the tweets by Mike Solan, president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild. The tweets include one on Friday saying that the “far right and far left are responsible for that sad day.” Solan didn’t respond to requests for comment from the Times.
