The Seattle Times has agreed that if viewing of the footage is necessary to an investigation, they will do so at the police station instead of requesting that a copy be made. This keeps the sensitive material where it is safe fromt the public and cannot do further harm. We appreciate their compromise. However, this will not keep similar requests from being made by others in the future. Therefore, the goal of the petition is no longer to request the media back away from their request, but to ask the protection of the SPD and courts from future requests, as well. We want to show that the public good is not served by this information becoming public and that the public wants the evidence to stay in the hands of the police alone.
