    I suppose "caning" is still considered bad form huh?

    Violence in Seattle appears to be out of control……….and most of it is from the minority community. Is this because the Feds are hobbling SPD in proper methods of law enforcement and prevention??? Racism is on the rise in Seattle since Obama became Prez. Overall, Liberalism is the ultimate cause of more racism and crime.
    The liberal voters of Seattle are raving “entitled” idiots.

    parental responsibility laws would curb most of this however we need to be ready to clog the courts with irresponsible parents for a while until we flush them out.
