NRA Life of Duty Features Spokane County Sheriff's Office in "Catch and Release" Documentary

Thursday, February 21, 2013

FAIRFAX, VA – The National Rifle Association (NRA) is pleased to release the latest documentary for the NRA Life of Duty online network, presented by Brownells.

This Patriot Profile, brought to you by Smith & Wesson, shares the frightening story of Michael Northway and Matt Spink, two Spokane (Wash.) County deputies who were shot in the line of duty by a felon who was, once again, back on the street.

With more than 18 felony convictions ranging from drugs to robbery, assault to weapons charges, Charles Wallace was released into an outpatient drug-treatment facility over the objection of law enforcement and the U.S. District Attorney.

On June 19, 2012, Wallace stepped out of a vehicle and began shooting at deputies, during rush hour, on a neighborhood street directly across from a shopping center. Hit by bullets, Northway and Spink were caught completely off guard, and Wallace fled on foot to the home of a woman in her 80s and assaulted her before stealing her car. With a manhunt under way, Wallace later shot at another officer who was only a few feet away but, miraculously, missed.

Overwhelmed and underfunded law enforcement officers continue to face the same criminals over and over again, let down by a system some refer to as “Catch and Release.” Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich allowed NRA Life of Duty TV almost unfettered access so it could reveal how the Charles Wallace incident highlights the dangers of the practice, which increases criminal behavior and endangers everyone.
