  1. I am going to try to explain why their are do many shootings going on . The murder, the man slaughter,the drive bys and the shooting sprees. All of this violence is happening because of the fear that was put into people thru the media sensationalism of the corvid pandemic. We are arguing about masks!! We should be focused on each other not scared to be near anyone. It’s a terrible lonely feeling to lose someone and the virus wants us all one by one.

  2. I disagree, when you stop punishing criminals defund police departments they become more emboldened and empowered. Crime will continue to go up until we stop these silly practices! I’m willing to bet this person has been arrested several times and released.

    1. I completely agree Steve. And now Washington’s new law has given criminals the added advantages of police needing “probable cause” vs “reasonable suspicion” to investigate suspects. They’ll likely get away with a lot more crimes since our officer’s hands will be tied in many situations. Criminals are gaining more rights than victims now.
