Who do you go to when the police don’t do their job?

During the Thanksgiving holiday, my fiancé and I were brutally assaulted by a gang of seven people after a very minor traffic accident. We called the Federal Way police and expected the officer in charge to make an arrest and at the very least make a report of the assault so the prosecutor could investigate.

After we could not locate a police report, I then contacted the officer’s supervisor, who told me that the officer in charge was on a SWAT mission and would be addressing the case when he returned.

Well it’s been almost two months now. No report, no charges, no nothing. Just swept under the rug. My fiancé and I are bi-racial, but I thought the law was supposed to work for everyone.

Maybe if more of these types of cases where known, the Federal Way police would do their job more often without bias.
