Jacob Jones, I don't know if you received permission to take a photo of the home. Having been there myself, I'm pretty sure you were standing on private property when you took a photo of the house. That's considered trespassing if you took a photo on private property without permission. By the way, I know Bruce, and he's a very honest, giving, and nice man.
We are not ruled by mob rule. Mob rules says we can hang anyone we want, regardless of what the truth may be. That is vigilante justice. So what you are telling me is that a Grand Jury found no fault with the officer's conduct, but you want to hang him anyway as some sort of vengeance for the actions of a street thug who had just robbed a store? Give me a break, people. That officer had the right to protect himself and he did. We have video confirming he robbed a store and physically assaulted the store owner. He reached for the officer's gun and the officer shot him. What is so difficult for some of you to understand? Put yourselves in the shoes of that officer and tell me what you would have done differently.
Wow, no comments? I expected at least one person to troll this article.
I think you're missing someone and his honor.
he got tired of the b.s. too, such a shame to lose him...
So, let me get this straight. The governor and the state legislature abdicate their responsibility and barely escape the contempt of the state Supreme Court in the McCleary decision. And, they have no real, substantive plan in place to resolve the problem of funding education (as required by the state constitution). The people approved, through the constitutional and democratic initiative process, a class-size reduction initiative.
Of course, no one really knows where the money will come from, but the governor and legislature are now tasked with that.
But, now, the governor just unilaterally nullifies the efforts and will of the people of the state because "... we've decided here is that we cannot fully fund [the class size initiative] in this first biennium ..."
Maybe the Washington State Supreme Court needs to rethink the whole contempt thing and find both the legislature AND the governor in contempt.
The money is there. Cutting the pay of the top two tiers of management of the state agencies in half or more will render the bulk of the funds necessary, I'm sure. The salaries of those people are obscene and need to be brought back to a realistic level. What if those people quit? No big deal. They bring little value for the buck. We'll hire someone who will actually work for the salary provided.
