The city’s side of the story

For everyone who thinks the city should have reopened The Bridge more quickly after the killer crash the other night — somebody at City Hall seems to feel the need for a moment-by-moment explanation; check it out here.

Meantime, we’re finally hearing who those three people in the Scion were. I just knew it would turn out to be teenagers. What heartbreak for their parents.

    I agree it’s a shame that 3 yound people dies, but natural selection works in strange ways.

    I will state again…no need to keep the bridge closed so long. If the government can take your property via imminent domain, they can use the same reasoning to move a 1 car accident.

    What if that would have been your sister, brother, or friend that died? Wouldn’t you want a complete and thorough investigation? Did you really use the term “natural selection”? Obviously that process doesn’t work, or that would have been you on the bridge.

    I was trying to get to the airport that morning and understood the severity of the situation and was thankful the police acted the way they did.

    Wow, W. You disagree with me so you wish that I was dead? My argument isn’t with the investigation, it with the length of the investigation (see my comment above) and how much it impacted 50,000+ people that day.

    I respect this blog too much to really tell you what kind of a “you know what” you really are. I don’t wish death on you, I simply wish that you’ll become intelligent one day.

    Think about the incident at face value. Car hits brige at 65+mph at 3am. The cause is one of 3 things 1) wreckless driving, 2) drunk driving or 3) medical emergency. The end result is 3 burned bodies that you’ll never be able to determine the cause, so why take 8 hours to deterime that? But that diesn’t matter to you. I’m sure you’ll argue that a deer jumped over the West Seattle Bridge.

    See how ridiculous someone can sound when they’re not compassionate. That was my point. Glad you got it. Being late for work due to a fatality accident is the least of our worries when compared to what those families are dealing with. Enough is enough.

    Enough is not enough when you don’t make sense.

    1) I understand your “points” – I should be compassionate about the deaths and understand what the families are going through.

    2) Since you stated “Glad you got it”, please point out where I acknowledged either of these points.

    3) Once again, you are an idiot. You state that I don’t have compassion. I stated “It’s a shame 3 young people died…..”. I really mean that. Once again, my argument is with the length of the investigation.

    And for the record, I don’t see anyone in my family driving into a wall at 65mph at 3am. If they do, I will immediately request that the investigation not tie up traffic for 8 hours.
