Crazy Town Gets Crazier
Another insane Monday afternoon in downtown #Seattle. I was doing my usual rounds, about to report some POSITIVE NEWS regarding the encampment sweep at 3rd Ave & Pike St this morning. Mayor Bruce Harrell (@mayorofseattle) defending the corner from “trap tents” that are set up consistently to sell drugs just a block away from City Hall. Most of these folks are not homeless people. Many live in the nearby DESC buildings, hang out, and attract even more problems. As usual, I wanted to show the progress. But one fella didn’t want me pointing the camera at all the drug activity. So he pulled out a knife and started chasing me! He also threatened to kill me and hurled the N-word and racist Asian slurs in my direction. Witnesses called cops. But this maniac ended up tripping on the ground, ending the encounter. I did not wait around for police. Will be happy to provide SPD any information, but I know the agency is understaffed so I will not bother filing a report. I think I’m gonna take a break from this hood for a while. Just in the past few months, I have been threatened with a hatchet, baseball bat, and knife on this same block. This part of the city is still all upside down. I can’t wait for City Hall Park to open up again this summer, just one block away from this madness. Good luck Emerald City. Good luck. LOL.
Last month, 47 year old Jeffery McMillan charged at me w/a bat. Judge released him since SPD did not send evidence in on time to KC Prosecutors. Case now w/City Attorney Ann Davison’s (@_Ann_Davison_) office. Meanwhile, he’s still on street.

Back in January, 15 year old Marcelles Orr came after me as well. Thankfully, he remains behind bars awaiting treatment for his devastating fentanyl addiction. #Seattle
Saved His Life
Orr’s grandma says the arrest may have saved her grandson’s life. I watched entire arrest go down. Two responding officers called for back up because Marcelles Orr would not go w/them peacefully. They handled him w/ extreme care. #Seattle
