But over the weekend, received more info about the officer involved, who was investigated for excessive force while on the Denver sheriff team.
Young: "I still feel that Mr. Lawrence should not be appointed to the task force" bc it could be counter-productive to the task force.
"We need to have a group of ppl who are going to be as objective as possible."
Weaver: I don't have much to say about Lawrence bc that's a pending outcome, so it's not a factor in my decision.
Council OK; they are not formally voting on this.
Asks for a yes vote on all 13 members, Lawrence included.
"What I'm seeing here tonight is kind of an erasure of that."
He does have a certain amount of theatricality, but I love it. I object to the erasure of the process. 4 out of 5 of the panel recommended Sammie. And yet you're choosing to ignore that fact."
