They moved the shells
how do we know if Olson fired all 3 shots from the same location?
Shells were not in front of
Quentin in first picture? It does appear that a shell casing is
behind Quentin's feet in the first picture?
First two shots appear from a
distance third shot appears to have been closer? It appears Quentin
was deliberately executed?
First two shots did not penetrate into his
body as far as the last shot considering the last shot went through
his shoulder penetration of the last shot would have been less then
the first two if it was part of the shot group in no way could that
last shot been done from the same distance of the other two it's
just impossible not to mention all shots were from back to front
angle he was not charging but retreating away from the officer!
Missing picture of Olson's
back seat why? Did it disappear after the crime scene investigation
or was it not taken deliberately?
Why only 3 pictures
of victim? Probably low on film? Shouldn't some focus be given on
the victim? And none of the pictures are close-up shots and the one
that is before the gurney came out of the ambulance had been smudged
out where shell casing behind his feet in first picture was?
Why has the pictures been
modified and by who?
Who is responsible for
constructing this report?
Why does it appear Spokesmen
Review provides "pr" for what appears to be a corrupt collaborating
system? More then likely to gain favor in up coming city contract
Authorities say Dodd ran at
Deputy Olson, and Olson drew his weapon and retreated. When Dodd got
to within 7 or 8 feet, Olson fired three shots at Dodd’s chest
If charging toward Olson then
why are the shots going into his body from his left side and one in
a downward angle?
If attacking the officer with the rock in his
right hand why did the bullets enter through the left side of his
If the shots were fired
simultaneously how could that one shot ever go in a downward angle?
That last shot could only of
been made if he was on the ground or on his knees, in no way does it
reflect the other two shots the entry holes on the first two shots
are considerably smaller and at a different angle?
If Olson fired at only 7 to 8
feet away THEN why ARE THERE no shell casings in front of Quentin in
The last shot took out
at that point in no way
could he have been resisting so why the need for the assisting
deputy to compress Quentin's neck with his boot?
At that point the assisting
deputy had no way of knowing that Quentin was already dead it
appears that he also did not want Quentin to testify
Now why would they
only DNA test the blood at Quentin's home and none of the articles
in question that belong to the officer's?
one point about this whole ordeal that
just can not be justified the need to
shot anybody while already on the

The first two
shots are at a 33 degree angle, and the last is at a 62 degree angle
to Dodd’s front
If Dodd was charging, I believe
the first two shots would be at different angles to each other, and
they would be much closer to 0 degrees, if he was charging
The 5 degrees
that Ozzy mentioned, are not a factor. If you are running, your
shoulder might be at a 15 degree angle, and add in the 5 degrees
that Ozzy mentioned, and you get 20 degrees maximum, not 33 degrees
It also doesn’t
explain that the first two shots are at exactly 33 degrees, which
would be nearly impossible, if his shoulders were moving. My
opinion is that Dodd was trying to run past Olsen, and not toward
The last shot,
(62 degree) which killed Dodd, is interesting. It is at a 46 degree downward angle, in
addition to the 62 degree side angle. That compound angle tells me
that either they
came up to the body and shot again, or Dodd was already down, and no longer a
Olsen shot once more, just for
If you figure that the rock was a
few feet from Dodd’s body, near his head, and that the body was face
up, in the crime scene photos, nothing makes sense. You have to wonder if the last shot was to make sure
Dodd didn’t tell his side of the story
I have to wonder
if the last shot came when he was on his back, or on his knees, or
what…. Either way, the last shot was unnecessary. Obviously he was
down, and no longer a threat. The knife was a few feet away, and out
of his hand
I also have to
question the need to shoot anyone with a knife, but it wasn’t a
knife. It was a stinkin rock

Spokesman-Review in opinion letter, Drugs
dangerous or not?
successive days, the Spokesman-Review published articles that
included information about prescription drugs.
On Sept. 18, an article on the shooting of Quentin Dodd by a Spokane
sheriff’s deputy related how the Dodd family disputes the deputies’
claims that Quentin was dangerously high on drugs because the
autopsy revealed that the only drugs in his system were prescription
drugs. The article did not state what those drugs were or at what
levels they were in his system when he charged the deputies with a
sharp piece of obsidian rock. The spin seems to be that the
deputies’ are not credible because the drugs were “legal,” and
therefore the shooting must not be justified.
An article published the following day (“Drugs, though legal, can be
deadly”) stated that the number of deaths from overdoses of
prescription drugs now exceed traffic fatalities.
You can’t have it both ways; on one hand imply that Quentin Dodd,
stoned on prescription drugs, could not possibly have been as
dangerous as the deputies claim, and then the very next day report
that nationwide hundreds of thousands of people are getting stoned
enough on prescription drugs to the point that they are actually

Deputies Justified in Their Use of Force
Ofc. Teresa Fuller
Spokane County Sheriffs
Deputies were justified in their use of force, according to Jack
Driscoll, Spokane County Prosecutors Office. Spokane Police Major
Crimes detectives received a letter from Driscoll stating Deputy
Olson was justified in his use of deadly force in the October 24,
2010 shooting of Quentin Dodd
On October 24, 2010, at
7:35pm, the owner of the clean and sober house (507 N. Sommer)
Quentin Dodd was living in called 911 to
report that Dodd had cut
himself after an argument with other tenants. Dodd left the house
carrying an 8 inch long
“Indian arrow” type object. Five minutes later at 7:40pm, Deputy Rustin Olson
approached the area from Sullivan, while Deputy Todd Miller
approached from Progress. Both officers observed the object in Dodd’s hand. Dodd ran at Deputy Olson, and
Olson drew his weapon and retreated. When Dodd got to within 7 or 8 feet, Olson fired
three shots at Dodd’s
dropped to the ground, rolled over and the knife fell out of his hand. Shots were fired at 7:42pm
The autopsy showed Dodd
died from the gunshot wounds; toxicology reports showed positive for
After reviewing the
case, Driscoll concluded that Dodd was armed with what appeared to
be a deadly weapon, disregarded numerous requests to drop the weapon
from both Deputy Miller and Deputy Olson, who was retreating when he
fired as Dodd closed in on him.
