Spokane police Chief Frank Straub: you are a sorry bastard excuse for a peace officer. Updated

You suck like a Hoover with a turbo.  Fuck you and the diseased pony you rode in on, you miserable shit.
“Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you know, a worse situation,” Spokane police Chief Frank Straub said.
Oh, yeah, Deity forbid a 88-year-old man dare to defend himself from a couple of thug attackers...

Update:
Pointed out by Jeffersonian in comments, it appears Straub was incompletely quoted:
“Our information is that the individual fought back and that may have made this, you know, a worse situation,” Straub said during a Monday morning press conference. “I’m not being critical of Mr. Belton. We certainly encourage individuals to fight back, and he should have. But it shouldn’t have happened to begin with.”
Expanded on today:
“When I was asked yesterday about the significant injuries that Mr. Belton sustained, I responded by saying that those injuries were incurred when Mr. Belton fought back against his attackers. Mr. Belton's actions were both appropriate and justified. In fact, I encouraged individuals to fight back against attackers and acknowledged that Mr. Belton was correct in doing so.

In fairness, Straub appears to have recanted:

But it's still outrageous that his first instinct was to call self-defense "unfortunate".
