    We need more police officers in Seattle. The population keeps going up, along with all the new apartment buildings, so does the street crime. The U district tolerates too many vagrants that are not students or productive citizens.

    People moved here in the last twenty to thirty years to get away from the crap that was happening where they were at. An all's they did is bring the crap with them, gee thanks.

    The man who got stabbed was not a vagrant and did mot deserve what happened to him. Before you post comments on news that you know nothing anout check your facts. He was a smart young man who grew up in a tough life. He deserved better than that. RIP.
