Seattle Police SWAT team in The Junction: Just training, but …

When Judy asked via Twitter why Seattle Police SWAT officers are in The Junction, near 42nd and Oregon, we suspected they’d come for training (the to-be-demolished homes in that block have been used for it before); as our crew discovered, that suspicion was correct. The team has a request, though: If you parked along 42nd in the area (4400 block, north of Oregon), please go move your vehicle(s) ASAP …

… they need the space!

    Could this be the cause of the big BOOM we just heard at 42nd and Andover?

    I lived in one of these wonderful old homes several years back. It’s a damn shame to see this block being torn down to make room for yet MORE apartments that we don’t need.

Sorry, comment time is over.
