  • Officers witnessed the stolen vehicle pass them but could not pursue it due to current state laws another example of the current trend to take “enforcement” out of “police enforcement” and time to do away with hese ridiculous restrictions supported by our local law makers you know who!

  • “enforcement”… Really? Look what happened in Seattle. An innocent individual was killed when a police vehicle hit a pedestrian in a cross walk. Maybe the police need to focus more on “prevention” and achieve better results.

  • Drive with a dui warrant , no license or reg, not arrested? Stolen truck ended up going wrong direction on 18 not arrested? Eat mushrooms take him to hospital not arrested? WTF ?

  • Enjoy the lawlessness, WA state. This is what you voted for. And in every case, the person “let go” will go on to victimize others. With the blessing of politicians. Go ahead: Ask a politician what should happen to a 20 year old felon on parole found with an illegal gun while committing another crime? The law says 10 years in jail. But not in King County. In most cases nothing will happen. And you might even get your gun back. “We need tougher gun laws!” they scream. While ignoring the brutally tough gun laws already on the books. Remember the shootout near Pike Place a few years back? Those kids were multiple felons found over and over with guns. Nothing happened. And then, when tech workers were caught in the cross fire, idiot politicians said “If only we had tougher gun laws….” Both of those kids could easily have been in jail for 15 years prior to the pike place shootout with existing gun laws. If only.

    All we hear from politicians is “we need to be safe,” “do you feel safe?” SAFE SAFE SAFE over and over. Safe from scary words. Safe from scary TV shows. Safe from disease. Safe from people without masks. But the real risk to your life and well being in KingCo isn’t words or disease. It’s crime. And when it comes to crime, the politicians have decided “you are on your own. Good luck. But let us know if someone says a word that hurts your feelings.”

    The wrongway driver reported on SR18 could easily have killed someone. That road is dangerous enough when everyone is sober. But here, the police are forced to “not pursue” and the criminals drive the stolen car, high as kites, the wrong way on SR18.

    The politicians are clowns. They care nothing about you. Every night on the news we hear again about cars being stolen by someone that should already be in jail. About a women getting raped by someone that should already be in jail. About someone getting beaten and robbed by someone that should already be in jail. By a fire that burns down something set by someone that should already be in jail. By someone getting hit by cement thrown onto the freeway by someone that should already be in jail.

    The county and state doesn’t care about your safety or wellbeing. Look at their actions.

    Our police have been reduced to a shuttle services for victimizers. Take the drug user to the hospital. Go look for the next drug user to take to the hospital. That we have so many drug users is again what WA state has voted for. Enjoy the pain and suffering you created, WA voters. I hope when you look at all the tents lined up, the women doing “favors” for drugs, the people slumped passed out in the rain…I hope you turn to your spouse and say “Honey, we did a really good job in our voting over the last few decades to get to this point. Good for us. We are awesome. ”

    None of this is an accident. It’s all 100% intentional and byproduct of stupid voters. And it’s coming to the valley. So get ready.

  • Absolutely well put. Unfortunately, woke Seattle decides our governor and most the state legislature.
