    Please update how many were pulled over that were below .08—-Mason County has pulled many over and given tickets that were below .08–some with a .00 alcohol content because they were acting funny–blood tests showed no drugs—seems to be a revenue source for the County–also entrapament seems to occur where the police officer will pull up on th ebumper of a car with high lights on until the car speeds up and then pull them over for speeding–illegal search of the car occurs afterward—those that can afford lawyers get their tickets dropped–those that can't wind up paying for court costs, fines, and alcohol treatment they probably didn't need.

    Have to keep tabs on everybody, never know how might be a criminal, it is the progressive way. A file for everyboby and everybody in a file, and you thought you lived with liberty and freedom, you are just a serf their to fund the parasites of the progressive bureaucracy. God help us if they ever manage to put through a state incomes tax, but King county is registering illegal aliens to vote so they should be able to force one on us fairly soon with that breeding parasite we elected as govenor, Inslee has never seen a tax he did not like or a taxpayer whom he did not want to fleece.
