  1. This is insanity!! Week after week I have read them and they are appreciated. However I don’t like the way this no arrest stuff is going… I get people want to be compassionate… So do I. But there is a limit when a woman can’t even safely take an uber or what ever without being assaulted, yet our city only wants us up here to take this type of busses to get to the Bowl… So I guess I won’t be using any Ubers or any such thing either. I feel if people are caught in the act they should be held accountable. How I am willing to be as kind about it as possible but to just leave a passed out Heroine addict in a main drag shopping parking lot and do nothing. Did you take his rig? Or did you just let him sleep until he woke up and used it again? Tell me more. You see I think 99 is a problem I know you think the same. How could you not. I also know you hands are semi tied… I don’t like that either. But I have new people in my area. That has been the case here for quite some time years and years. But we didn’t have this type of thing. We didn’t have dogs barking incessantly barking at all hours of the day and night and not just some hey get out of here barks.. Constant and I have watched them with their masters just standing there with out even attempting to say No or stop. No control over their animals or themselves. SO now we or me as a citizen have to watch out for ourselves I guess…I feel sorry as this doesn’t have to be this way. And we all know how it can be changed. So again I love my EPD. I just pity who you apparently are forced to listen to. I don’t want my police to be injured. I care!!

  2. The man passed out in a car with heroin and paraphernalia was given a citation and left alone. Then I looked up Washington law and it is now a misdemeanor, not a felony, to carry heroin, cocaine, etc. I read further that an open bottle of alcohol in a car near a driver is against the law and carries a stricter consequence.
    Here is something wrong with this picture. In my mind, these two scenarios both involve vehicles and drivers. And if the heroin user woke up, was still high, and took off in his car killing or maiming someone, couldn’t that have been prevented by at least taking his keys? Same with a drunk driver. Take their keys and hold them in the police station where they can pick them up when they’re sober.
