The security-camera image is from Cheryl in High Point, who says the person “tried our door and a lock box on our house. He only ran away when we talked to him through the camera.” it happened shortly after 5:11 am near the north end of Walt Hundley Playfield.

    The prowlers must know about Ring and surveillance cameras but they keep doing what their doing. Sad situation all around.  Maybe they are desperate and don’t care in a drug fog or know they will just get a slap on the wrist.

    I’d say they also know Seattle PD isn’t going to do much about these attempts and the city practices “catch and release” so they’ll get at most a slap on the wrist if not access to an entire support team and free housing to help them since they are the true victims of an uncaring society according to current local political thought.The “If we are nice to him, maybe he will go away” philosophy. Also called “Thugs Just Need Hugs.”

      Police in some of these cases have done their part – for example, Gabriel Putnam, would-be burglar with knife. They arrested him. Judge let him out with reporting conditions, he stopped showing up, warrant was issued two months ago and to date he hasn’t been found.

      Then there are the violence-related cases. I just checked on one. Repeat drunk driver Carlos Villalovos, arrested for injuring a student in a hit-run near CSIHS. He is still in jail, after almost five months.

        Inconsistent judiciary?

    These people are all obviously tweekers/junkies. Honestly, I’d contribute money to a fund to give them free drugs. Probably cheaper/less scary than having them break into people’s houses and going into the justice system. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
