Comments on: Update: Helicopter assists with search in South Delridge http://westseattleblog.com/2014/04/helicopter-joins-search-in-south-delridge/ West Seattle news, 24/7 Thu, 28 May 2015 23:32:27 +0200 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.4.2 By: phil dirt http://westseattleblog.com/2014/04/helicopter-joins-search-in-south-delridge/#comment-1286367 phil dirt Sat, 12 Apr 2014 15:30:02 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=270243#comment-1286367 "Phil, would you rather police search your yard without knocking to ask permission?" Yes, actually I would prefer that. I feel the need to be concerned only after the knock on the door. After dark, I do not answer the door, but it does cause a certain amount of uneasiness. If I knew it was the police and not some unwanted guest disturbing my tranquility, I would answer the door, but past experience has resulted in my being cautious about that sort of thing after hours. “Phil, would you rather police search your yard without knocking to ask permission?”

Perhaps intoxicated yelling man awoke the alert neighbor and they were just dozing back to sleep when they hear the glass being broken. Intoxicated yelling man deserves some kind of commendation.

The criminals often drop their drugs, guns or loot prior to being arrested. Recovering the evidence helps in the case. Also you don't want a child finding a loaded gun/drugs in the yard. Otherwise somebody would be complaining why the cops didn't look for it to prevent a tragedy. . Police should be treated a little better. They are damned if they do, and damned if they don't. I couldn't do their job otherwise a lot more criminals would bang their heads on my car door, trip fall on their face, and I would find a lot of guns on dead criminals.

Was it necessary to the story to point out the color of the hoodies? Y’all are a bunch of racists. Eric: WSB never mentioned this, but it was mentioned by someone who witnessed the (now) arrests. Since race wasn't mentioned, was the person racist against the color of the hoodies? How is this relevant to the story? Well considering that those of us living in this area are quite aware that there is an issue with (wannabe) gangbangers in the area (particuarly claiming "Blood"), both through personal experience and reporting on this, I find this quite relevant to knowing what is happening in my neighborhood. Considering that the witness saw 3 people handcuffed (which we now know were arrested) against a cop car at 1 something in the morning and two of them were wearing red hoodies in an area where there is an issue of wannabe gangbanging and the primary color of the gang is red, I would not be surprised to find out they claim being in a gang. It's not like what has been going with this neighborhood that this would be a stretch of the imagination by any means. I know, I know they probably just like to dress alike, cause we all know how "cool" that is/was to do to dress like our friends. I know.... none of this has ANYTHING to do with the content of character from these indiviuals. It just automatically comes down to being racist. Well gee, since I found out that I'm a racist, I'd better go let my wife know since I'm in an interracial marriage. I should probably also let my immediate and extended family know too since race ranges from European, to Filipina/Filipino, Japanese, Samoan, Portuguese, African American, Italian, and Native American.

What is with these dumb cops knocking on peoples' doors after dark? They should know better. Anymore, when people knock on my door after the sun goes down, I'm prepared for any eventuality. “We have been woken by police and k9 going thru our yard and knocking on our door to see if suspects are hiding in our yard previously.”

I'm on this alley too. . I slept right through it, although I do seem to remember hearing a chopper, but it seems more like a quick flyover/hover, and would have guessed it to have happened much earlier, like around 10:30, about the time I went to bed. .
