    Random shootings are very common in that area. The thugville should be avoided because it is swarming with criminals. It’s not safe to run a business, take the light rail, walk or drive through the Rainier Valley. Thugs on drugs.

      That is simply not true Kit and your thinly veiled racism is not welcome in Seattle. The Rainier valley is a working class neighborhood which is diverse and it is that diversity which generates your hostility.

        The southend has always been a high crime area – for decades. Remember the zillow employee shot in the head while driving through there? or the Asian donut shop owners beat-up and robbed? Every week there’s unsolved reendow shootings and some are fatal. Lots of problems with thugs.

          Make no mistake: kit is using ‘thug’ intentionally, and as he well knows, it’s the 21st century version of nigger. Kit is evoking racism as a scare tactic. This one if the many ways that racism is promulgated by ignorant whites.
          PS- the Zillow employee was killed in the CD.

            The word thug has absolutely nothing to do with race, whatsoever. It describes a behavior, not skin color. Thugs come in all shapes, colors and sizes. I t wasn’t until recently that someone decided it was a racist term. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as a brutal ruffian or assassin. If someone call a black person a thug, it is for that reason, not because they are black.

            That article pretty much confirms my statement. It wasn’t intended as a racial slur at all. it described actions, not race. Then, someone got offended by being called out for their criminal actions, declared it a racist term and, therefore, not politically correct to use anymore. I never associated the word with race until recently. White mobsters have been referred to as thugs for decades. Was Al Capone really black and just appeared white? If so, Rachael Dolezal will be ecstatic to know she isn’t the only one!

      What does that in ANYWAY have to do with a young woman being shot? They really should cut off internet access to idiots!

            Denying there is a problem and calling racism when it is pointed out is not going to help your property value buddy.

        • Donny Johnson

          There is a problem across this country and it includes racism, poverty, loss of living wage blue collar jobs. BTW crime has been coming steadily down across the city and the nation. You exploit issues such as crime to promote a racist and classist agenda.

          Just to be accurate the largest crimes in the past decade have been committed by white, wealthy, conservatives and we all of paid dearly while none of them were prosecuted.

          • concerned

            Nobody denies anything you are saying, its almost like your having a conversation with yourself. None of that changes the fact that thugs have taken over that area. How you consider that racist is very confusing and shows your ignorance.

          • concerned

            The only person who has mentioned race is the one calling racism, interesting.You should get together with Rachel Dolezal, it seems you have a lot in common.

            While blacks make up less than 6% of the population, they commit 50% of the crimes….they are perpetuating racism by their actions….this is about bad parenting of black children….a victim mentality that breeds hate and resentment, and a disrespect for society….this is what is keeping the “black man” down in this country,…oh, and I am not white so I guess I cannot be racist…you ass hole

  • Sua sponte

    notice how no race is given of the shooters I would bet money that they were black. everyone is so PC and don’t want to call it like it is because right off the bat their labeled a racist. Black on white crimes get shuffled under the rug and is rarely reported by the media. anytime a white on black crime happens it’s automatically labeled a hate crime stop the double standards.

    The five month old fetus has died. The 19 year old mother was with family at a bus stop after leaving a birthday party. This is deeply tragic.
