Former King County Councilmember and longtime civil rights leader Larry Gossett gives a brief history of police killings in Seattle, recalling the case of Larry Ward, a man an inquest found was unjustifiably killed by the police in 1970 but resulted in no punishment for the officers involved, during the Seattle King County NAACP’s first annual “We Will Never Forget, a Remembrance and Call to Action,” event Saturday, May 22, at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park.
