  1. When I remember back fifty years ago when I first moved to Edmonds, the nearest crimes reported in the newspapers were in Seattle. The occasional shootings, bank robberies, etc. Somewhere along the way, Edmonds crime became worse, and we became headlines. Each week, I read the Edmonds Police Blotters. I wonder if others are as concerned as I am about the crimes that take place in our city, in our neighborhoods, about everything our police have to handle each and every day 24/7.

    Each of us need to take some of the responsibility of not leaving anything in our vehicles that seem to attract a passersby tempting them to break. To keep our homes and cars locked up. It is unfortunate we need to feel this way, but it is a fact of life. There are way too many people who want something for nothing. The scam calls and emails, the breaking into homes and vehicles.

    I also wonder if anyone is ever embarrassed when they read the Police Blotter because they are being reported about an argument/disagreement on the street? Do they not realize that there are others with their cellphones calling 911 or even taking pictures of them? A raised voice or aggressive actions attracts those around them. A quiet discussion could possibly achieve better results and not involve others.

    I wish to thank our Edmonds Police Force for everything they do to help protect us. Reading the Blotters each week makes me appreciate you more and more. Thank You!!!

  2. It is almost laughable that our police attempt to stop traffic violators who then run from the police which in its self a second violation and the officer shrugs his shoulders and does nothing even if the vehicle is stolen. All due to our state’s legislature passing a law that does not allow further police action. This law needs to be repealed.

  3. Aren’t you jumping to a lot of conclusions here Vern? Did it ever occur to you the police may not have pursued due to the possibility of a scared and mentally unstable car thief hitting more vehicles while being chased, or worse yet, running over an innocent pedestrian while being in a car chase that can only probably end badly for all concerned and likely innocent citizens? I commend these police for their good judgement and decision making. That’s what we want after all, police interested in protecting the public using good common sense in the actions they choose to take in performing their difficult jobs. Car chases are only cool in the movies. In real life, they often end very badly for the guilty and the innocent.

  4. Sorry Clint but have you checked on the recent passage of a law by the WA State Legislature that severely limits the actions of police in pursuit of criminals and others who are observed committing esp traffic violations and the police are severely limited in attempting to stop persons without more probable cause than they used to be allowed? Talk to police officers who are now longer allowed certain actions. I am not talking of high speed vehicle pursuits as such. If you see the news each week you would have heard/read of the police not allowed to attempt the stop of persons esp for minor violations altho the officer has actually seen the violation. What law allowed before has now drastically tied the police officers hands from actually even beginning apprehension of subjects.

  5. Sorry Vern, but you are blaming a law you don’t agree with for the police not engaging in hot pursuit of a stolen car that had already hit two innocent vehicles and would probably hit more if a hot pursuit was initiated. The car will be abandoned and found at some point and the thief will get arrested at some point. My personal opinion is still that the police did the right thing in this instance and I don’t care why they might have done it. It’s quite possible that the law you don’t agree with might have prevented some unfortunate outcomes had the police engaged in a hot pursuit. One incident doesn’t prove or disprove your assertion that the legislature passed a bad law. These laws will be challenged in the courts by the people who have to try to enforce them and they will be thrown out, or changed if they prove to be problematic for law enforcement.
