It will be difficult to see yesterday’s announcement that no charges will be filed against Henderson Police Sgt. Seekatz for his role in the 2010 beating of motorist Adam Greene as a positive sign of things to come in the post-Roger era of the Clark County DA’s office. Newly appointed District Attorney, Steve Wolfson, cites the amount of time that has passed since the beating took place. A concept that many are having a tough time understanding, since the video was kept from the public until the Henderson City council approved their portion of the nearly $300,000 settlemetn Greene and his wife received.
Wolfson told the Review Journal that, while the video was difficult to watch, he didn’t feel it was “in the community’s best interest to file a charge because it’s so long after the incident.”
How is allowing an abusive, dangerous and violent cop to continue to patrol the streets armed with a gun and the renewed confirmation that he won’t be held accountable for his actions “in the in the community’s best interest?” That’s something I sure would like Wolfson to elaborate on.
If Wolfson wants to convince the public that being tall enough to ride Space Mountain isn’t the only thing that differentiates him from his predecessor David Roger, then he needs to back up the claim that under his administration “(police) conduct will be scrutinized” he shouldn’t sit and wait for another one of neighbors to fall victim. He needs to act now. If not against Seekatz, then one of the many others. Yant’s purjury. Wavie Reeds unpunished killing of a Henderson pedestrian or Edward Little’s ambush murder of his lover’s husband, Ruslan Zhgenti, in the man’s own home.
Until he grows a pair of balls, Wolfson’s message to police is clear. “Hide the evidence of your wrong doings as long as you can and you will be rewarded.”
