New Dispatch from the Seattle Cesspool

Yes, it’s that time again.  Time for a news roundup of what’s going on in the dystopia that Seattle and environs are becoming.  Contributed to by the perverse state law that prohibits police pursuit of fleeing vehicles, which results in hundreds more stolen cars, and criminals allowed to get away.

First, we have the case of the black man in Puyallup who is accused of shooting two police officers.  His bail has been set at $2 million.

The prosecution was granted the bail amount by the judge after arguing that Salanoa was a danger to the community, “he has demonstrated time and time again that he will not comply with court orders. He is a danger to the victims and the public,” they said.

It seems this guy has a history of “domestic violence” and assault.  Well, at least the Pierce County judge agreed to the bail, instead of doing what the King County judges do and releasing him on his own recognizance.

Our next story involves a public school teacher and coach, accused of sexual misconduct with a student.  We hear about a lot of these lately, don’t we.

According to the Lake Stevens Police Department, as the result of a lengthy investigation, the man was arrested around 10 a.m. and booked into Snohomish County jail for two counts of assault in the fourth degree with sexual motivation, two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, and two counts of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

The next story has been percolating for a while.  It seems that an “opioid treatment center” will be opening its doors next week in Lynnwood, on the same block as a school.  The City Council was not informed of this event until it was too late to stop it, and the state Health Department issued the license for it, regardless of its sensitive location.  The local neighbors staged at least two demonstrations protesting the opening, but had no effect.  So there will be lines of people in the mornings, waiting for their doses of Methadone.  Great for the kids.

On Seattle’s Beacon Hill, there have been multiple thefts of and from US Mail trucks.  Neighbors wonder if their mail will be delivered, or get hijacked by thieves who open envelopes, steal checks, and read sensitive information which may lead to identity theft.  It is of interest that all the trucks which were stolen were locked and secured.  I wonder who stole a set of keys from the local post office?

There’s the tale of the Seattle wedding-dress shop that was broken into, leading to $100,000 in losses.  The Seattle Police Department is spread so thin, with all the departures, that they no longer investigate property crime.  Store owners are known to live in their shops to prevent thefts.

And, finally, the bane of Seattle and King County’s existence, the Homeless Problem.  That creature of the Homeless-Industrial Complex, know as the “Regional Homeless Authority”, has declared that Billions, not Millions of dollars (of taxpayer money) will be needed to “solve” the homeless crisis.  Since they have already spent many tens of millions of dollars, only to see the problem growing worse every year, does anyone really think that throwing more money at it will help?

King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn called the price of the plan “jaw dropping.”

“Homelessness is a very serious problem, so it breaks my heart to see the KCRHA double down on Seattle’s failed policies on homelessness,” Dunn said in a statement. “We know from King County’s 2019 Point-in-Time Count that 45% of the homeless come here from outside our area to take advantage of our generous services. Until we come to terms with this, King County will be a dead-end street for the nation’s homelessness.”

All those $12 Billion will be spent on so-called “services” for the “unsheltered homeless”, when housing is not the issue, since the vagrants can, and do, simply refuse to be “served”.  They prefer living on the streets with no rules, and no consequences.  And no one stops them.  Or ever will.

Welcome to beautiful King County, Washington.
