Re: “Happy Ending?

If your dad was the scuba store he was no better he bailed in the middle of the night emptying the store and owing customers thousands of dollars in prepaid products and not paying suppliers.

Re: “Bitter Pills?

Well it can't be much worse than what the county staff was offering before. I spent 2 weeks there in 2015 and tried to get seen for a skin infection. When I got out I had to go to the hospital for IV antibiotics the day of my release. Not one reply in 10+ request for care. Spokane is a hellhole compared to the 3 other jails I've unfortunately been booked at.

Re: “'Seek and Destroy'

Regardless of whether it's mandated by the Supreme Legislature--I mean Court--spending money without regard to outcomes is stupid and wasteful. Why continue to spend money if outcomes aren't better?

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

Yes to K ....the small claims is the exempted court venue for tenants to sue said landlords.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

Yes and thank you for your comments.....if and when the council can and will make a court of venue change, from regular court to the small claims court...only then will us and our support system have the whereathall to achieve justice for poorly maintained rental properties.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

I checked Rhonda's link for Small Claims court. There's nothing in that document saying a tenant can't sue a landlord. Please elaborate.

Re: “Taxes, Wages and Pot

Payroll taxes are taxes imposed on employers or employees, and are usually calculated as a percentage of the salaries that employers pay their staff. Payroll taxes generally fall into two categories: deductions from an employee’s wages, and taxes paid by the employer based ideas available at For more ideas.

Re: “A Blind Eye

@Soziale Gerechtigkeit So, you want "justice," or "just us?" I think Leach's players should all be kicked off the team and their scholarships revoked. I also think Hillary Clinton should be in prison for over 60,000 felonies committed under the Espionage Act. Based upon your vehement demand for "justice," wouldn't you agree?
On 5 July 2016, the US officially ceased being a country of laws and justice. The new bar for justice is whether, "a reasonable prosecutor would bring these charges."
Willkommen in den USA, wo Gerechtigkeit keine Rolle mehr spielt.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

Turns out that the people in this article are actually squaters and not tenants, They have not paid rent in six months along with other tenants and other squaters at the apartments.

The Inlander fails at journalism again......

Re: “Tall Order

To use journalist and police accountability watchdog Tim Connor's phrase, there were a "lot of appearances of the Lord" at last Thursday's public interview of would-be-chief Craig Meidl. In addition to the video of that event available in the City's website, there is another video that people ought to consider watching and which should provide a more honest and less guarded perspective not just on the mindset of the acting chief and Condon pick Craig Meidl, but also of now-Capt. Tracie Meidl, then-Chief Dobrow and now-SPD Internal Affairs head Justin Lundren, as well as the church-based apparatus they have constructed as the vehicle of their efforts to counteract not just police accountability work in the community, but as Meidl's first statement in the video makes clear, to counteract the media.

This video comes from 10 months ago on 10/4/2015 at the Word of Life Church and is part of a major joint public relations (propaganda) campaign by the SPD and a group of Christian pastors who have come together around pro-police pastor Shon Davis.…

The video, which starts after a worship service in which Meidl and the other three SPD officials apparently participated, contains some striking segments.

In particular, at 16 minutes and 42 seconds of the video, Pastor Shon Davis finally gets to questions and asks as the very first question: What are the specific identifiers fueling the distrust of police?

And here, at 17 minutes and 30 second Craig Meidl starts with his very first answer by stating:

"Strictly from a law enforcement perspective one of the things we have seen since day one of being hired is that the pen is mightier than the sword. The media is very strong, very powerful. They have a lot of influence in the world. And since we are in a church I can say, the enemy can use it for bad, God can use it for good. So one of the things we see is that there is a significant amount of media coverage that focuses on the negative events that occur, whereas from a police perspective every day there are hundreds and thousands of good occurrences that occur, officers who put their lives on the line who don't perhaps use force when it is authorized, don't shoot when they could shoot. Those things don't tend to get a whole lot of coverage. I think the big thing is the lack of communication. If the media is not going to help give that transparency, I think that is where people like Pastor Shon come in and provide that transparency. I am going to shut up but just one real quick thing. I just want to say a special thanks to Pastor Shon. He has been trying for over a decade to get us where we are today. He has tried since Chief Bragdon to partner with the Police Department. And it has been a long journey for him and I don think that he probably knew when he started that it would take him a decade to get where we are at. So I want to say thank you to Pastor Shon because he really is the driving force behind this."

Bishop Shon Davis, pro-police pastor with the Faith Alliance Team, was one of the 41 panelist involved in the interview process for the two official candidates for Spokane Police chief. The Faith Alliance Team, per the website, “has partnered with the Spokane Police Department and our Mayor, David Condon, to bridge the gap between Law Enforcement and the citizens of our community. We believe that the bridge has a two fold process. It is purposed to help one to cross over. But it also is designed to give access in. The Faith Community is committed to becoming that bridge to help the police department cross over into a community that has lost trust in their ability to police their neighborhoods as well as to assist the community through transparency and accountability to give access in to the police department. We are determined to be community where the police are the community!”

(For what it is worth, here also is the link to my previous post with the expanded bios of the 41 panelists from the July 20 interviews of the two official candidates for Spokane Police Chief. Fifteen of those 41 panelist were current of former law enforcement, including interestingly enough, all four SPD officials at the Word of Life event featuring Pastor Shon, who was also a panelist, along with other pro-police individual from the Police Advisory Committee (PAC) and elsewhere.…

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

The landlord is actually a land lady. His ex wife owns these now after their divorce. My fiancé just moved out of those apartments, he's told me some stories. It's gotten worse around there recently. I feel for these people wanting a home for their child. There have been a lot of homeless people coming & going & sleeping on the porches in the back. One of the tenants has been letting their homeless friends in & it wasn't agreed upon with the landlady.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

To councilperson waldorf......change the courts so that we poor people can sue said landlords in SMALL CLAIMS COURT....
so in that way we can get the justice that we need and want from some but not all of these nasty, nasty, greedy landord or real estate agents for rental property.

Hey Leach! Love your comment about the media's inaccuracy, despite several witnesses who identify your players. You sound just like your buddy Trump!

Re: “To Understand a Pedophile

Dear Ms.
I am a man with peter pan syndrome and I am most definately NOT a pedophile. While emotionally I feel like I'm still 8 yrs old, my cognitive skills and logical part of my brain are very mature. I don't think like a child. I have on a few occasions had to report child abuse and will continue to do so wherever and whenever I see it. Yes I tend to socialise frequently with kids, I've got so much more in common with them. This life is a very strange thing and I'm living it. I get angry at myself for still liking toys and the accoutrements of childhood but I can't help it, I just do. Any pedophile should think twice before hurting a kid around me. I'd be quite inclined toward serious violence at them. I'm quite protective of, what I consider to be, other kids

Re: “Tall Order

I read the article "Tall Order" with much interest. The section about the mentally ill and looking at a pre-arrest type of facility made me think of Providence St. Joseph's Health and the fact that they are building a free standing Psychiatric Hospital at 5th and Browne here in Spokane. Maybe a collaboration for an area attatched to the Emercency Ward would be the perfect solution. Several Police officers could be assigned there as the person is waiting to be evaluated. Seems like the best time to approach Providence would be now, since construction has not started.
