3 police responses: 1 bike, 2 fights

Three Tuesday night police responses that might have caught your eye:

WESTWOOD – DOUG GOT HIS BIKE BACK: Since our Monday morning Crime Watch reader report from Doug, whose bicycle was stolen from atop his car outside his North Delridge home when he stepped back inside to get his child, the story played out in comments – including some sightings. This one at Westwood Village from “West Seattlite” on Tuesday night, plus police assistance, got Doug’s bike back. (The thief, however, is still on the loose.)

That was around 7:30 pm. Then, two sizable police responses in the 9 pm vicinity – we heard about them too late to check out firsthand, but did get some info from police:

TRIANGLE – FIGHT: This one brought a big response to the Fauntleroy/Alaska gas-station vicinity. Southwest Precinct Lt. Alan Williams explains that two officers in the area saw a fight in progress; when they moved in, two people ran from them. They found one person “involved in fighting with the 2 suspects who ran off, but he was somewhat uncooperative.”

ADMIRAL – STREET FIGHT: This started as a confrontation between people walking across California SW by West Seattle High School and people in a car. An argument turned into an assault when one of the street-crossers got hit in the head. Seattle Fire was called to treat the wound. The alleged attacker wasn’t found, says Lt. Williams, but police had a potential lead on his identity.

    Well of course the stolen bike was found in Westwood Village. Cause it seems that at least on the south side of West Seattle this is where the POS with stolen bikes hang. 

    I unfortunately have to see this on a daily basis going to work in the morning with sketchy “down on their luck”  POS congregating looking over what loot they have in their “respective” back packs.

    I also see abandoned bikes on a regular basis, so this is no surprise.

    Go down to the north end of Airport Way where the tents are and you’ll see multiple bikes around one or two tents in various states of disarray.

    I always wondered why there were homeless at the bus stop at Westwood with multiple bikes… 

    I figured they owned those bikes…but low and behold… They stole them…

    i wonder what they do with them after stealing them?

      I am concerned that this is stereotyping.  Not all homeless steal.  Bikes are donated and acquired through other legal and some philanthropical means.  We do not know what or how life happened to these individuals to bring them to this lifestyle.  Let’s be kind and not judge.  I used to think that what homeless person can afford a cell phone.  Then I heard about the non-profits that provide prepaid cell phones to homeless.  And yes Wendell, this is a happy time of year…let’s continue that.

        I don’t have time to be politically correct.  In fact I’d say that it is this that is one of the factors letting people hide behind their bad behavior.  

        No one said that All homeless steal.  But at the same time I’m not going to exonerate the POS I see on  a daily basis in favor of political correctness.  

        Magnolia had this issue with the RV’s in their community where they would find their stolen bikes at these RV’s.  And I’d bet money the dozen or so bikes next to a tent are not all donated. 

        And actually the government is one of the biggest providers for giving the homeless cell phones.  Look up free government phones. net because as they say on the site,  not everyone can work for Microsoft,  or something asinine to that effect

    Lots of kids out after the basketball game in the admiral area.  I interfaced with several young looking (8th grade?) very drunk, privileged kids at the grocery store.  Heads up parents!

Sorry, comment time is over.
