West Seattle Crime Watch: End-of-school homework burning, case #2

Back on Friday, we mentioned briefly on the WSB Facebook page that police had responded to a Hiawatha-area call about students burning homework papers after the last day of the school year. Turns out that wasn’t the only paper-burning call they handled that day – SPD Blotter has just published this saga of a Schmitz Park incident hours later.

      Jonah Spangenthal-Lee is a journalist who SPD employs to do a fair amount of blotter writing and tweeting – had a site SeattleCrime.com for a while and I believe worked for the Stranger for a while – and yes, he has a style, which is why I am not just cutting and pasting the text as we often would with the more basic SPD Blotter updates – he deserves to have his work read on his ‘own’ site with byline :)

    The sketch of the suspects cracked me up!

    Shouldn’t this be handled by Homeland Security? Who knows what teens may be thinking. Is there no more room on Guantanamo?

    Those suspects look VERY familiar.

    Any leads on the two suspects? Perhaps we should tune into a certain TV station for updates. (Love the SPD blotter writer!)

    Nice to hear of an arrest in Schmitz park. I run into teens there using pot all the time. Literally just walked by a teen parked outside the park rolling a joint. Was wondering though whether the police are able to spend time on these type of calls considering the state voted yes (hate that)

    Does anyone remember the huge shaving cream fights we used to have when classes ended? Did anyone else do that? So much fun!

    So excited for this time of year when the ferals are running loose 24 x 7 instead of just after 3 p.m. I’m more than happy for them to be smoking weed, I think it might slow them down from some of the property destruction.

    Good lord… not a teen… rolling a joint????!!!

    Surely this nation cannot afford another teenager smoking the devil’s plant! Lord help us all.

    Hahaha this just made my bus ride.

    @Rachel. The state’s yes vote actually made pot use MORE difficult and more easily punishable than our previous system.

Sorry, comment time is over.
