A proposed new ordinance in King County aims to slam the door on the so-called “catch and release” plan for non-violent felony offenders booked into the county jail.
County Council member Jane Hague introduced a measure this week that would bar county administrators from setting a cap on the number of inmates booked into King County’s two jails.
The measure says that only judges have the authority to release felons “…to make sure we place that authority where the constitution says it belongs – with the court,” said fellow council member Rod Dembowski in a Law and Justice Committee

Amanda Knox has finally cast off the shackles of her oppressors, and she’s proven to the world that a rich white woman with a highly-paid PR firm behind her, and ties to rich Democratic politicians, can still be treated fairly in our cruel, cruel society.
She suffered for the sins of affluent white girls everywhere, and with a little help from some rich and powerful people, she emerged victorious.
It’s your classic underdog story.
A woman is accused of murder; uses Page 1 from the White Girl Murderer playbook and blames a black guy; is convicted; is un-convicted

To all of you who claim to be surprised by the Democrat’s latest wealth transfer bill in Olympia, well, you shouldn’t be. After all, the Democratic Party was the party which fought for slavery in the Civil War. The Democratic Party is the party of the Ku Klux Klan. From 1933 to 1960, the Democratic Party opposed 80% of all Civil Rights Bills. 40% of Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act (as opposed to 20% of Republicans who opposed).
That the Democratic Party would support a bill allowing wealthy white landowners to seize more of black people’s meager earnings

We’re a state run by the Democratic Party, and if you ask anyone around here, they’ll tell you …
The other political parties hate poor people and black people and all other minorities except wait, what’s this, payday loans disproportionately affect poor people and black people and other minorities, and our legislature just sold them to big business.
Despite this, we’ll vote for these very same people in the next election cycle.
Because we don’t give a damn about poor people or black people or other minorities. Seriously. We could not care less. We just want to feel

Word on the street has it that, once it was pointed out to him that homeless and elderly people were slightly stronger, and thus slightly better able to defend themselves, than a children’s choir … Mo Better Blues Hawk wanted nothing to do with tonight’s event.
I’d say it was a solid decision.
Well done, toddlers.
Child Bullying, minority displacing, priapism curing, emotionally-stunted, psychopathic, pathetic cowards on the lookout for grown-ups or anyone who might be able to fight back.
You know, I’ve taken on the local protest groups quite a bit in the pages of my blog, but I’ve always done so as a protestor myself, and there’s always been at least some element of tongue-in-cheek expression in my opposition. Despite my criticism of their sincerity, I’ve always maintained some level of hope that I was wrong about them, and I’ve always felt a tiny bit of, even if it is not always palpable,

They’re bored as hell, and they’re not going to take it any more!
Believe it or not, I had to work today.
Yes, yes, I know, I know, working is sooooo proletariat, and therefore so un-nuevo-Seattle, but somebody’s gotta do it. If the economy collapses, the trust fund checks stop, and then the outraged class will really have something to complain about.
As I made my way back to the office from lunch, I got caught in the trust-fund social event as it made its way from Westlake Park to the U.S. Courthouse.
Folks, do you know what an organized,

Well, you won.
Initiative 594, the one that requires mostly-proletariat gun owners to register with the ruling-class. With overwhelming support coming from our wealthiest, most highly-educated districts, passed in the State of Washington 60% to 40%.
Nearly all rich Washingtonians voted in favor, but why did so many out-of-state multi-millionaires support Washington Bill I-594, though? Didn’t they spend an awful lot of money to influence legislation in a state they don’t even live in? Why would they do such a thing?
Do they really just care that much about the safety of the common man?
The answer, is

It’s not often that large corporations do something that I appreciate, in fact, I’m not sure that I can remember a time before this one.
That said, if I’m going to criticize, I have to also give credit where it’s due, and this time, Apple deserves some aforementioned credit.
Last week, Apple decided not to build backdoors into the encryption for its iPhone products beginning with the iPhone 6, and following suit, Google did the same.
Of course, none of this is the result of altruism. Both Apple and Google would re-instate the Holocaust if they thought it would add

Seattle. The world’s largest Monopoly board. Magnet for every greedy real estate developer in the good old US of A.
“Well, that’s the price of progress, Rex. It’s a free market.”
Yeah, the “capitalist” mantra. That is, until it’s time for the little guy to bail out the banks that make the loans for these properties. We only care about capitalism when it’s time for the tenant to get her cut. Rent control is evil only when it’s time to pay the people back.
In any event, bend over, First Hill, this one’s going to hurt a little. It’s time
