Homeless Person Passed Out on Seattle Sidewalk, Pedestrians Just Walk Right By

Just another day in Ballard, as this homeless man is laid out on the sidewalk. Most people simply walk by and ignore the problem. But even the ones who want to help get threatened and disrespected. @CMDanStrauss @MayorofSeattle @GovInslee @kcexec @CMSaraNelson @CMTMosqueda @D5Juarez @SeattleCouncil @KCCouncil#Seattle

“I have to ask them to leave”, Businesses in Little Saigon Fight to Survive Drug Scene

Weekends are the worst at 12th and Jackson in Little Saigon. Open air drug use and a black market of stolen goods are thriving. The emphasis patrols by #Seattle PD and King County Sheriffs are just a temporary fix. The insanity moves to streets and parking lots, and then it comes right back. Business owners in this area are forced to confront this mess as they fight to survive. Dozens of businesses have already left the #CID because of on going crime. Meanwhile, the King St. homeless encampment just added several new tents on @WSDOT property. @cmkshama and @CMTammyMorales remain MIA. This is arguably one of the most dangerous parts of the city, right in the heart of Asian American Read More ›

Explosion sets Ballard Jack in the Box on Fire, “It’s Normalized Now” Say Residents

Ballard Jack in the Box up in Flames Homeless suspected of burning down part of Ballard @jackbox on Leary Way NW early Wednesday morning. Restaurant remains closed today. I saw worried workers in the parking lot trying to figure out next steps. This location remains problematic and is surrounded by multiple RV and tent encampments. @CMDanStrauss needs to focus on this part of his hood. It’s been cleared multiple times. @MayorofSeattle @GovInslee @kcexec @SeattleFire @CMTMosqueda @D5Juarez @SeattleCouncil @seattledot@KCCouncil #Seattle How Long Will This Last? On Thursday, 8th Ave NW and 6th Ave NW were clear of RV’s. I have not seen it like this for quite some time. But it’s a game a musical chairs. @Seattledot is enforcing the 72 Read More ›

“Children Should be Protected” Says Seattle Parent on Upcoming Protest for Encampment Resolution

Protest Preview Parents, neighbors, and supporters will be mobilizing Friday in #Seattle‘s Wallingford neighborhood. They are trying to put more pressure on elected officials who have allowed the Ship Canal Bridge encampment to remain in place despite murders, fires, and on going drug use across the street from John Stanford International School. All elected officials have been invited. @GovInslee @wsdot @WAStateCommerce @MayorofSeattle @SeattleCouncil @KCCouncil @CMSaraNelson @CMTMosqueda @D5Juarez @kcexec Organizers say, “Advocating for our children’s safety is not advocating against the needs of the unsheltered.” GAME PLAN: Meet at 8:15am in the school parking lot, march past the encampment, then rally on walkway overlooking I-5. Parent Eli Hosher says he will be bringing donuts for the homeless and wants to engage Read More ›

Homeless Offered Shelter and Services, Tents and RVs Remain

Streets of Seattle Since last year, I have covered multiple encampment sweeps on 3rd Ave S. and Utah Ave S. in SODO. But the tents and RV’s keep coming back and have been hunkered down for months. Business owners say they are demoralized and do not believe the city will ever resolve this. Remember, most of these folks have been offered shelter and services, but refused them. I recognize many of the same RV’s and vehicles that have simply moved around. There are also many new homeless campers. Along with the on going drug use and illegal activity in these situations, look at some of the weapons (SAMURAI SWORD) being carried around. Once again, Tammy Morales (@CMTammyMorales) is MIA and Read More ›

Far-Left Activists Set up New Encampments, Accuse Officials of Being Complicit in Deaths

Grand Re-Opening Hijacked Far-left activists with Stop The Sweeps #Seattle delayed the start of Saturday’s Ballard Commons Park festivities by more than 30 minutes. Some of them were swearing in front of children and slamming Councilmember Dan Strauss (@CMDanStrauss) and Mayor Bruce Harrell (@MayorofSeattle) for their policy on homeless encampment removals. @SeattlePark‘s leaders including Superintendent AP Diaz (@SeattleShines) were also on hand but their speaking engagement was cut from the program due to the disruption. But multiple angry neighbors pushed back against the activists and the celebration resumed. I’ve got a full report coming up. @GovInslee @kcexec @seattlecouncil @KCCouncil Growing Concern Look at the signs put up by Stop The Sweeps #Seattle. This FAR-LEFT activist group is well known for Read More ›
