(Olympia, WA)  --  A law-enforcement organization in Washington state says it's supporting proposed legislation that would change the state law protecting police who kill in the line of duty.  The Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs says the bill is a good example of "middle-ground" legislation that also calls for money to train police officers in areas that include de-escalation.  The bill would remove the "malice" element from the law, which prosecutors say gives officers immunity for acting recklessly or negligently as long as they lack evil intent.  No other state has a "malice" clause in use-of-force laws.
