‘Prolific’ car thieves arrested in Ballard

Seattle Police have arrested two suspects with an impressive history of grand theft auto.

According to Seattle Police, the pair stole a Toyota SUV in SODO on Oct. 8, switched out the license plates, and began using the vehicle to commit new crimes. On Oct. 10, the Major Crimes Taskforce (MCTF) located the vehicle in Ballard, where it was parked at the Safeway on 15th Ave NW and NW Market St.

Working in tandem with the North Precinct Anti-Crime Team (ACT) and patrol officers, they watched the 36-year-old male suspect park the vehicle and walk inside the store, while the 31-year-old female suspect remained in the car. The North ACT officers arrested the male suspect inside the store after he reportedly barricaded himself in a bathroom.

When uniformed officers approached the car to arrest the female suspect, she slid into the driver’s seat and tried to flee, ramming a patrol car and an unoccupied vehicle in the process. She eventually stopped and was arrested, according to Seattle Police.

While being interviewed by detectives, the suspects admitted to, “being in several other stolen vehicles, car prowling, and being in a number of police pursuits in several different jurisdictions.” The man was then booked in to King County Jail for felony warrants for residential burglary, attempted theft, attempted trafficking in stolen property, escape community custody, and for investigation of possession of a stolen vehicle.

The female suspect was booked for a felony warrant for escape community custody and for investigation of possession of a stolen vehicle and assault.

You can’t make this sh*t up. These are the people our lunatic “leaders” hire and consult:

https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/politics/from-breaking-laws-to-making-laws-ex-pimp-at-center-of-new-police-reforms/

“From breaking laws to making laws!” Taylor wrote on a YouTube video of his testimony in Olympia on Initiative 940, the measure he spearheaded to force the changes.

Wrote one of his friends in the comments: “From pimp to political activist.”

Wait, pimp? Yes, the man who just helped push a compromise solution to one of the more incendiary political issues of our day was once an escort hustler known as “Gorgeous Dre.” He was sentenced in 2000 in Las Vegas to more than five years in prison (he served a little more than one.). He also appeared in the 2000 documentary “American Pimp.”

“Let’s just say that in my previous life I did learn some life skills, such as how to keep my composure,” Taylor said when I asked him about his past.

Taylor, 49 and now a life coach, says he knew that despite the heated beginning in Seattle after his brother’s killing, keeping cool would prove to be crucial.”

No, you really can’t make it up. But you can make up a story about how “Gorgeous Dre’s” precious lil bro “Che” could have been a Harvard student instead of a lifelong felon rapist. I’d love to know how much money dapper Dre (he does have some fine threads) has extracted from “Not This Time.”

More of our “valuable new neighbors”!
Big thanks to the enablers and crime apologists.
No mention of the scumbags who stole the ash remains from a camper over on 8th the other day?
C’mon and report it.

You get bonus points for using ‘restorative’ and ‘justice’ together in a sentence! Now, do you need a hug, or are you in your safe space?

Some tasty Firefly Gardens kimchee, lovingly made by my wife Julie, would do the trick. Come buy some at New Seasons Market. And be sure to stop by and say “Hi” as I protest New Season’s union-busting tactics. Solidarity!

Yep, as soon as we get rid of toxic masculinity we’ll stop violence. Oh wait…

Kshama and I are holding hearings next week. These are the car thieves Seattle most desperately needs.

That’s so corporatist. I’ve got a “Sawant” bumper sticker on my bike.

Seattle logic, in a nutshell:
>tell people to use transit and commuting alternatives, hit people with whopping parking tix for overstaying meter 5min
>use revolving door justice on homicidal car thieves and allow thieving junkie scumf*cks to park everywhere long term FOR FREE

Do I have that about right?

You forgot the part about allowing building permits for 130 unit buildings that have absolutely no parking spaces.

“Car thieves” is highly derogatory and offensive to people experiencing car shortages.

More catch and release people. Why are we coddling these perps? Why aren’t all current laws already in place being used to put these wonderful people away? Are their votes really that important? I mean, WTF else then is it Mike? Sawant? And all the other apologists on our city council? I guess their idea of utopia is US wading through incessant shreds of human debris. All I see today are glittering jewels of colossal ignorance running this city.

Next time why don’t for once the SPD tweet out that we’ve caught some criminals and why don’t you in the community come on down and impose some good old fashioned street justice before we haul their asses off to jail.
