With poor, slow service reported for many WS businesses, it’s reassuring to know that our local pawn shops are able to get their customers promptly paid, and out the door to resume burglarizing or hiding in ravines..!?

I go on ride alongs occasionally. They sure deal with such horrible working conditions so much of the time. It’s a totally thankless service job. So many on the force love this city more than anything too.

You are right though, it’s not easy being a police officer these days, they are almost handcuffed with their own cuffs anymore.

Try being an Officer of the Law it’s not easy.

In Fullerton or Albuqurque they wouldn’t have messed around with you and just ended you.

We added that information to the story a little while ago – see paragraph above that starts “ADDED MONDAY MORNING” – SPD released more information about an hour ago. – TR

It wasn’t a stranger who broke in.

Beautiful for driving, bicycling (runners and walkers use it too but note that there’s no sidewalk and not really much shoulder) … TR

I haven’t a clue where, exactly, Fairmount Ravine is. Can anyone enlighten me?

.
I guess if you are dumb enough to break into houses during the day on Sunday, you are dumb enough to pull a knife on the police. Good job to the police for the arrest and I applaud you for using non-lethal means.
.
However, I hope you gave him a few extra jolts on the Taser to make sure he learns his lesson.
