Redmond Police Raid Pawn Shop | Redmond Public Safety

 

 

Redmond Police conducted a search warrant September 27th on a Kirkland pawn shop suspected of trafficking in stolen property.

The operation comes after more than two years of investigating illegal business practices at A-1 Cash Now Pawn Shop on 100th Ave NE in Kirkland.

Computers used to run the business were seized. The investigation is ongoing.

Lt. Erik Scairpon noted, “Bystanders were cheering for the Redmond and Kirkland Detectives who served the warrant when we arrived. One patron in the neighborhood said she was eager to be rid of the drug use, drug trafficking and thieving occurring in the parking lot.”

To protect the quality of life of residents in the area, the Redmond Police Department has made the investigation and prevention of property crimes a priority.

Pawn shops that receive stolen jewelry, electronics, gift cards and other goods perpetuate and encourage residential burglaries and thefts. This is part of our effort to make our community a great place to live, work and play.

Evergreen State College pays up to settle suit by Prof. Bret Weinstein | American Thinker

Professor Bret Weinstein, a leftist, refused to participate in the evacuation of white people (only) from the campus of Evergreen State College and sued the college for the hostile work environment he alleged that he and his wife subsequently suffered. Without admitting that charge, the state-supported institution that already faces a $2.1 million deficit and layoffs, is going to cough up a cool half million bucks to avoid the expense, spectacle, and risk of a jury trial.

[Editor’s note:  So the taxpayers of Washington will now need to cough up half a million dollars to settle the claim.   Is the “University” administration to suffer any consequences for their idiotic policies?  No, they get to enjoy their inflated salaries, benefits and can look forward to their generous pensions, all the while continuing their war on the civil society by indoctrinating another generation of ignorant social justice warriors.]

Inslee urges Boeing to build its new jet in Washington | HeraldNet.com

LYNNWOOD — Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday efforts are under way to ensure the new mid-size airplane on Boeing drawing boards is eventually built in Washington.

Inslee said his staff has had “discussions with industry leaders” about the new plane, which company executives have unofficially dubbed the 797 and would be a replacement for the 757. Boeing officials offered details of the future aircraft at the Paris Air Show in June.

[Ed.: Someone woke Inslee up long enough for him to do something? Oh, wait, no, “his staff had discussions”, so nobody had to rouse “Sleepy Jay Inslee”. I’m sure that KTTH host Todd Herman will be happy to know that no winks were harmed in the making of this story.]
