SEATTLE – A man accused of killing Seattle police Officer Timothy Brenton spoke out against police brutality in court on Friday.
Just before his pretrail hearing, Christopher Monfort alleged there was a subculture of police officers who protect corrupt colleagues. Monfort suggests citizens have a responsibility to defend themselves and their children.
Monfort is charged with killing Seattle officer Brenton on Halloween night. He has pleaded not guilty.
At the end of the hearing, Monfort asked to speak with the presiding judge, Ronald Kessler, in private. Kessler told Monfort to write him instead.
Monfort also spoke out in court last month, about a former King County sheriff’s deputy who was accused of assaulting a teenage girl in a holding cell in 2008.
