    I’m not just imagining that there’s a significant uptick in gunfire, right? Like people shooting at each other while driving, striking residences, etc? I keep thinking maybe I just wasn’t paying close attention before, but I’m pretty sure I’ve been reading this blog every single day, for years.Does anyone feel like there’s an uptick too? Is there a way to check data on gunfire crimes in the neighborhood? Anyone think it’s odd that there’s gunfire basically every day now?

    Wonder if this is the same white truck that was seen during the recent gun fire over the weekend in North Delridge: https://westseattleblog.com/2022/05/gunfire-investigation-in-north-delridge-2/

    Our students were out at recess when those imbeciles raced by.

    Anyone with a vehicle should put a ‘kill switch’ (disable the ignition) on their car. The club won’t work, they just saw thru the steering wheel.  Too many stolen everyday

    Fund the police! 

  • What? May 26, 2022 (8:13 am)

    There was no blue SUV in the chase portion, it was a different color and type of vehicle, clearly described to SPD, twice.

    People are unhinged… and it’s not just guns. Mentally bereft of any reasoning.  Example (no it’s not West Seattle, but everywhere)  Do I really wanna stop if someone is in the middle of the road and yelling. Prolly not.  https://komonews.com/news/local/man-accused-of-throwing-hammer-that-struck-8-year-old-near-spokane-valley

      This is clearly a spoof article. Crime only happens in liberal cities like Seattle, not conservative areas like eastern WA were the law and order folk live.

Sorry, comment time is over.
