Comments on: Police-activity updates: Guardian One over High Point; SPD on Alki http://westseattleblog.com/2014/04/guardian-one-over-west-seattle/ West Seattle news, 24/7 Sun, 25 Feb 2018 06:52:09 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.4 By: MaydayMayday http://westseattleblog.com/2014/04/guardian-one-over-west-seattle/#comment-1307559 Fri, 02 May 2014 02:12:03 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=272006#comment-1307559 People it’s May Day all that SPD has is downtown and on Capitol Hill keeping the peace. It’s a major all-hands-on deck day for them with fears of riots and lawlessness. They have a skeleton crew. They can’t do it all unless you demand more officers. No one is ever happy as if SPD is just sitting in their cars calling the shots and ignoring Alki. Not true they are stretched today.

I realize pot is legal, but I thought the law was the same as alcohol, as far as public consumption goes. I’m concerned with those driving impaired & under the influence, with possible buying/selling turf wars – it does not blend well with crowds and families trying to enjoy the beach. Tighter control is the only preventative measure to help keep those issues at a minimum.

The Gangbangers will find somewhere else to chill real fast.

Look for major problems today when all the cops are downtown for the May day riots.

We went down to Alki to enjoy a beautiful evening, skating along the beach and ended up turning around and going home! There were still gangs of young people talking about his many guns they had and telling people to get the “f” out of the car. My kids were terrified. There were no police to be seen and it saddens me that a few people can so easily ruin a experience for so many. I don’t understand why the police don’t just keep a couple if officers down on the beach to deter inappropriate behavior and help keep Alki a place where families can feel safe.

I’ll take a video of people bouncing their cars up-and-down, up-and-down Alki, stereos shaking our windows, and motorcycle gangs doing 100mph (some of the riders stand on their seats). What doesn’t happen every sunny day is an increased police presence, so it was nice to see that today.

Alki is not the OK Corral…this really saddens me. Why can’t peeps just go and have a good time?

There were two female suspects handcuffed in the back of separate SPD cars. One suspect was laughing with Officers despite being cuffed. Didn’t ask any questions, just continued our walk down Alki.

They come out guns a blazin’ every year. Seattle seems to want to pretend we don’t have a problem tho.

No injuries involved, whatever it was; we’ll be able to find out tomorrow if we don’t rustle up details before tonight ends.
