Liberal utopia of Seattle: Drugstore employees subject to violent assaults as criminals become more brazen

Progressive-run Seattle has serious problems with 1) homeless criminals, 2) drug addicts, 3) the mentally ill, 4) prostitutes 5) police response time and 6) a county prosecutor who is more interested in social justice than having people doing time for their crimes. You can find one of my many, many, many posts on Seattle’s issues if you search “Seattle” in our search bar. For a brief summary of what is happening in that city, watch “Seattle is Dying.”

The video summarizes how the bureaucrats have put their progressive social justice agenda above any concrete actions to effectively deal with their problems.

The city’s problems are so severe that drugstore employees are routinely harassed and physically beaten at the downtown Seattle Bartell drugstore. Imagine fearing for your life by working as a cashier in downtown Seattle.

Hanna Kim for Q13 Fox reports that Bartell Drugs CEO Kathi Lentzsch says it will not open any more stores in downtown Seattle after violent assaults on employees. The CEO has been surprised over the number of incidents and the violence she is seeing in Seattle.

Excerpts from Kim’s report:

“Surveillance videos inside Bartell Drugs have captured countless shoplifting cases. In one incident, video shows a man in one aisle quickly running off with up to $700 worth of skincare products.

Lentzsch says many times the criminals are bold and many of them are repeat offenders. “They will stand in front of our staff with a basket full of products and tell them we know you can’t come after us and walk out the door,” Lentzsch said.

We’ve had too many cases of employees ending up in the hospital or with very serious issues,” Lentzsch said. Multiple employees have been rushed to the hospital because of violent assaults.

Sometimes it’s shoplifting that escalates to assaults or just unprovoked attacks. The situation is concerning enough that the company is rethinking their future in the downtown core of Seattle.

In one case, cameras captured a pharmacist stumbling back with a broken nose. The company says he asked a shoplifter if he could help them pay for the items he had witnessed the suspect stealing. “We have an individual who had two surgeries in December from being assaulted,” Lentzsch said.

Most of the times there is nothing employees can do but just pick up the pieces, like the time a man lashed out and trashed the store. He appeared to be going through a psychotic episode.

The company says they have off duty police officers at two of their downtown Seattle branches.

In one of those branches a woman tried to come after an employee despite a police officer standing in front of the worker. It took multiple officers to subdue the woman. “Where we would like help is the violent offenders, it was startling to me how different the city had become,” Lentzsch said.

Lentzsch says for things to get better, city leaders and community members have to work together.

She doesn’t blame any one entity for the complicated situation. She says mental illness, drug addiction and homelessness all play a role in the uptick in violence.

Lentzsch says this is not a Bartell Drug problem because her competitors are facing the same issue and so are many other businesses across Seattle.”

#BelieveAllWomen: Climate change expert charged with choking fiancé, woman fears for her life

Aaron Doering can’t control his passion…

From NY Post: A well-known climate change expert and professor at the University of Minnesota choked and brutally assaulted his fiancée, who told cops she fears he will kill her, according to a criminal complaint.

Aaron Herbert Doering, a 47-year-old tenured professor and the director of the Minneapolis University’s Learning Technologies Media Lab, was charged Thursday with two felony counts of domestic assault by strangulation in Hennepin County District Court, the Star Tribune reports.

Doering — who also serves as a fellow for the Royal Canadian Geographic Society and regularly appears on media outlets to discuss climate change, sustainability and related topics — had to be separated from his fiancée by responding officers when they got to the couple’s apartment in Minneapolis, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the newspaper.

The woman, who had bruises on her neck and red marks on her forehead, told police Doering had dragged her through the apartment by her hair before beating her and choking her to the point that she thought she would lose consciousness, the complaint shows.

“Victim believes [Doering] will kill her if he returns to the apartment,” according to the court document.

The woman claimed that the alleged assault was not the first time she had been victimized by Doering. She also provided police with photographs to back up those claims.

Doering, who remains jailed in Hennepin County on $40,000 bond, is set to make his initial court appearance Friday afternoon, county records show.

Doering’s status at the university remained unchanged as of late Thursday, a spokeswoman told the Star Tribune.
“We’re aware of the situation and will be reviewing the matter,” director of public relations Lacey Nygard said. A message seeking additional comment from university officials was not immediately returned early Friday.

Doering’s website bills him as an explorer with a “passion for education and change” and details some of his lectures to more than 15 million students, as well as his dog-sledding trips and more than 5,000 miles exploring the Arctic since 2004. His latest project, “The Changing Earth,” is an Emmy-nominated documentary about a 137-mile trek through the Arctic wilderness into Iceland.

“Aaron has received millions of dollars in grants; has published more than 80 journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings; and is the coauthor of two books, The New Landscape of Mobile Learning: Redesigning Education in an App-based World and Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching,” the website reads.

Doering’s Twitter account, which has nearly 4,000 followers, identifies him as an adventurer and is peppered with photos of extreme Canadian Arctic locales, as well as his young son.

Liberal utopia of the Pacific Northwest: Cops never show up to armed robbery, assault in Snohomish County

And yet the proggies in that area continue to try and strip citizens of their Second Amendment right. I am so glad I moved away from that area.

From MyNorthwest.com: (Correction to story below) The Everett Police Department reports this crime did not happen within its jurisdiction. The original story has been updated.

The field manager of a Puget Sound business is puzzled why it took police so long to show up for a violent crime last week.

Dave Igel is the field manager for Morris-Hansen Enterprises Everett, a company that cleans windows up and down the I-5 corridor.

Last Wednesday, Morris-Hansen employees were cleaning windows at a bank in Everett when Igel said they noticed two thieves stealing from their work van. Upon approach by an employee, Igel said one of the thieves drew a gun, stating, “This is my van,” while the other sucker-punched the employee.

“By then, the other guy had come around the van and drew the gun, and told him to give him his wallet,” Igel described. “And he wouldn’t, so [the thief] struck him a few times with the pistol. He finally gave [the wallet] up.”

The bank reported an armed robbery and assault, but police did not show up, according to Igel. After an hour-and-a-half of waiting, the victims finally went to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office to report the crime.

“The guy told them, ‘These guys are being assaulted by guns in our parking lot,’ and nobody showed up,” Igel said.

Igel cannot understand why Everett police did not at least “check for fingerprints or check for video footage.” (Editor’s note: The crime did not happen in EPD jurisdiction.)

He said that he is a firm supporter of police officers and does not blame individual cops. However, he does blame local leadership for “not letting the police actually do their job” so that cops are “walking around with their hands tied.”

The violent experience was so harrowing for the employee whose wallet was stolen, that in the 10 days since the crime, he quit his job and moved back home to Texas.

“He freaked out because they took his wallet, and he was afraid they were going to come to his house,” Igel said. “He just freaked out and quit, and packed everything, and moved back to Texas.”

For that man, Igel said, the armed theft was the last strike after witnessing crimes all over the Puget Sound while on the job.

“He said he’s just seen enough around here — he said he’s been approached by so many different vagrants on the street … Texas isn’t like this, they don’t have it like this, where you have vagrant people all over the place,” Igel said.

Igel said he has witnessed countless crimes in his travels throughout the region for work, in particular downtown Seattle.

I love my job, but if everything is going to drive me away from this state, it’s going to be this city [of Seattle],” Igel said. “It’s insane trying to live around here.”

He holds out hope that new leadership will be elected to better handle the region’s drug and property crime crisis — especially when seven Seattle City Council members are on the ballot next year. “I hope the people that are up for re-election do not get re-elected because something has got to change around here,” he said.

#BelieveWomen? Charges dropped against cop due to “sophisticated ruse”

This is why we have due process, proggies.

From MyNorthwest: All charges against a former Bellevue (Washington) police officer were dropped Monday when prosecutors stated that he did not commit the crimes he was arrested for, which were part of a “sophisticated ruse” put forth by the accuser.

KIRO Radio’s Hanna Scott reports that the King County Prosecutor’s Office is dropping charges against John Kivlin, and is not pursuing rape charges against another Bellevue cop Richard Newell.

According to court documents the accuser “fabricated evidence and used a sophisticated ruse to deceive Kivlin, law enforcement, prosecutors, and the court in order to have Kivlin taken into custody and charged with additional crimes. The result of the (accuser’s) fabrication was that law enforcement arrested Kivlin for crimes he did not commit, prosecutors filed charges against Kivlin for crimes he did not commit, and the court held Kivlin in custody for order violations which he did not commit.”

Kivlin was arrested in April and accused of assaulting his girlfriend twice. The two reportedly met on Craigslist and began a relationship in 2015. But the woman began making allegations against Kivlin and other Bellevue police officers in 2018. After Kivlin was arrested and released for the assault allegations, he reportedly contacted the woman in violation of a court order in July. He was then charged with witness tampering.

Kivlin was arrested again for contacting the woman in August. But prosecutors say the woman making the allegations was lying this time. After inspecting Kivlin’s phone and billing records, it appears that the woman got Kivlin to text with her using a fake name in August.

Prosecutor’s add that she admitted that rape allegations she previously made in 2009 and 2010 were also false.

Prosecutors said that they are not pursuing previous charges in light of the recent developments and the accuser’s lack of credibility.

The case has also wrapped up Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett in allegations. Those allegations are under investigation by the Bothell Police Department and have not been made public. Mylett has been placed on leave. Despite not initially knowing the nature of the allegations, the chief denied them.

The woman who waged allegations against Kivlin and Chief Mylett also accused another Bellevue officer, Richard Newell. No charges were filed against him. He has also resigned from the police department.

Seattle woman out for a run attacked by homeless man, wants city to “do something productive”

A Seattle woman, Maria Ball, was out for an early run on Friday around Green Lake when she was attacked from behind. The man grabbed her chest and crotch. She yelled for help and neighbors called the police.

According to the MyNorthwest.com story, Ball knew something was wrong the second she was grabbed and managed to elbow the man behind her. She learned the technique in a self defense class.

More from the story:

Ball says she saw the man on the other side of the street, near a homeless encampment, when she ran by on her way to Ravenna Park around 6:25 a.m. When she turned around and headed back to Green Lake she thinks he was waiting for her on the other side of the street.

The police report became accessible to the Seattle Police Department media unit Friday night. A spokesperson told KIRO 7 any connection between the attack and the homeless encampment would be speculative.”

In the video accompanying the story, Maria says that an investigative officer said they’re “99% sure” he’s living in the nearby homeless encampment. Police also told the victim that based upon the description she gave them, they’re sure he’ll do it again and the next attack will be more violent. (Police have yet to issue a description of the man.)

Maria says the city is partly to blame and wants them to take action because there are violent people living in the homeless encampments throughout Seattle.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Don’t hold your breath for the city of Seattle to do anything. If history is any indication, this guy will have the chance to commit another attack. Hopefully it won’t be more violent.

See the following for proof of how the city of Seattle enables homeless criminal activities:

Lawless in Seattle: Police never respond to Target’s call of theft in progress

Seattle – like many west coast, progressive-run cities – has some serious problems (homelessness, needles left on the streets, open drug use, feces and urination on the streets, increased crime due to lack of enforcement, etc.).

Just several days ago I told you about a developer whose housing project went up in flames because of homeless drug users. The gentlemen had called the Seattle Police several times and the police even had a conversation with one of the squatters. The police did not ask the squatters to leave nor did they remove the trespassers. The squatters caused a fire which the developer estimates damage at $1.3 million. Read the whole story here.

Now it turns out criminals are able to rob and steal in broad daylight while Seattle Police do not respond to calls for help.

MyNorthwest.com reports that a thief was free to steal and assault at a downtown Target store because Seattle Police NEVER RESPONDED to the store’s call for help during the 15 minutes the theft occurred.

From their story:

“Surveillance video from August allegedly shows 41-year-old Jason Lewis confronting sales workers on the electronics floor of the department store. At one point, he head bumps an employee. The terrorized employees left him alone after that. Lewis then destroyed display cases and grabbed as many electronics as he could over 15 minutes.

“He then begins to push over and drags store displays and he uses one as a weapon, swinging it like a sled hammer trying to break a secure container loaded with iPads and Apple watches,” KIRO 7’s Gary Horcher reported. “When that didn’t work, he kicked it repeatedly. Then he got down on the floor and tried to kick it open with both feet. Keep in mind, three minutes have passed since this violent tirade began. Lewis rips down the big video monitor on top of the Apple display, and then he is barely able to budge the very heavy 4-foot by 3-foot locked case.”

The perp is a career criminal who was arrested later that night for car prowling. A judge released him from jail just 19 hours later. That’s when the perp went back to the same Target store and repeated the thefts two more times over three days. Police eventually tackled him outside the store after his final attempt.

Read the whole story and watch the video here.

I said it before and I’ll say it again: Seattle hasn’t had a republican mayor since 1952. And voters knew EXACTLY what they were getting when they elected a demorat mayor and a city council full of demorats (also one socialist).

Sorry Seattleites…I’m fresh out of empathy for y’all.

Rape, strangulation and assault: Three attacks by homeless people in Seattle in less than a month

The homeless situation in Seattle/Q13Fox photo

In November 2015 the former mayor of Seattle, homosexual Ed Murray, declared a state of emergency in Seattle due to the homelessness situation. At that time, there was an estimated 10,000 people living on the streets. Fast-forward to May 2018 and the number of homeless people has increased to over 12,100.

The city has a very lax policy in allowing the homeless to commit drug offenses. The homeless openly use and drug dealers are frequently spotted at homeless hangouts. The city even allows drug use at some homeless shelters.

Now the homeless have become more brazen with their criminal activities. No amount of tax payer dollars is going to solve the problem until Seattle officials stop coddling these individuals.

From MyNorthwest.com: Police report there’s been another assault from a man, believed to be homeless, against innocent passers-by, this time a father and his daughter walking to the Cinerama in Belltown on Father’s Day.

The unidentified victims were on their way to a screening of “The Incredibles 2” when the suspect, David Ailep, allegedly followed the pair as they walked down the sidewalk. When the female victim tried to walk away from Ailep, he said to her “why are you laughing at me” and “stop laughing at me.” She wasn’t laughing at him.

According to the police report, obtained by KTTH 770 AM, she asked Ailep to get away from her, but he refused:

“She observed that Ailep had his right hand in his pocket (she noted that it looked like was holding a knife in his hand covered by his jacket pocket) and his left hand was up and back in a striking position like he was going to hit her,” the report says. “She feared that he was going to strike her, and she decided to pull out her ASP baton from her purse to defend herself.”

The female victim screamed at him to get away from her, but he refused, grabbing both of her arms, and rattling her back and forth until he was able to take the baton from her, according to the police documents. She yelled out in pain.

At this point, her father became aware of the assault and jumped into help, tackling Ailep to the ground. While on the ground, according to the police report, Ailep swung the baton at the father, hitting him “directly on the forehead” leaving a “visible swollen laceration” from the baton strike.

After police arrived in the area of the 9-1-1 call, they spotted a suspect matching Ailep’s description. When the two officers attempted to make contact with Ailep, he sprinted away on foot and, “without any instruction given to him,” laid on the ground to be detained.

One of the officers observed Ailep to be under the influence of drugs. He said Ailep had a difficult time staying focused, and appeared frantic and “in a complete stand of delusion or delirium.”

During the interview, he made random statements to the officer like “what’s in your sink man” and “I take showers.” He repeated random statements like “easy” and “twelve, thirteen, twenty-two.” The police report claims he “appeared to be suffering from the effects of a powerful psychedelic and or stimulant narcotic…” and claimed he performed oral sex for drugs. While he claimed his pockets were empty, a search found a folding knife, a cell phone, and a wallet that didn’t belong to him.

After his arrest for felony assault and theft, a King County Intake nurse advised Ailep was not suffering from mental illness but was “extremely intoxicated” from a stimulant narcotic. While the Seattle Police Department hasn’t confirmed Ailep is homeless, a source suggested they believe him to be.

This is the third high-profile homeless attack on a passerby in the last several weeks, with a rape in Ballard and a strangling of a tourist near the Space Needle occurring within weeks of each other. These incidents are occurring as Mayor Jenny Durkan asks for community support to place tiny home villages in residential neighborhoods. The South Lake Union village may be low barrier, which would allow someone like Ailep the ability to keep his drugs in his home.

Philly mayor blasted for celebrating sanctuary ruling, despite past crimes tied to illegal aliens


From Fox News: The Philadelphia mayor, blasted by the White House after being filmed dancing in celebration after a judge ruled in favor of its sanctuary city status, was doing so because it was an “important moment for all Philadelphians,” his office said Friday, despite the city’s recent history of illegal immigrant alien-related crime.
A video tweeted by Mayor James Kenney’s deputy chief of staff showed him giddy after U.S. District Judge Michael Baylson ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration can’t withhold grants to the city over policies that limit local law enforcement’s cooperation with federal immigration officials.
“Mayor Kenney displayed excitement because it was an important moment for all Philadelphians, especially our immigrant community,” Deana Gamble, his communications director, told Fox News on Friday.
Gamble said the city’s policies are designed to ensure individuals’ constitutional rights are protected. “Philadelphia does not protect or harbor criminals and the judge also found that Philadelphia has historically cooperated [with] federal law enforcement agencies in fighting crime, which is beyond dispute and widely known,” she added.
Philadelphia previously has said it will only hand illegal immigrants over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents if they show a warrant signed by a judge.
But ICE, as recently as May, have been carrying out operations in the Philadelphia metro region that it says target “criminal aliens, public safety threats, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws.”
“Many people in Philadelphia have been killed, raped or assaulted at the hands of criminal illegal aliens,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told Fox News yesterday, calling Kenney’s dance “disgusting.”
Outside of the raids, illegal immigrants aliens who have committed crimes or fugitives who have been deported from the Philadelphia area in recent years include:

  • Milton Mateo Garcia, who was sentenced in 2016 to up for 44 years in state prison after being convicted two years earlier of raping a young woman in Philadelphia’s Center City neighborhood. Garcia, a restaurant kitchen worker from Honduras, came to be known as the “Rittenhouse rapist” after he grabbed a 26-year-old woman by her neck outside of her apartment and pushed her inside, where he sexually assaulted her. Federal officials at the time said Garcia, 28, had been living in Philadelphia illegally and had already been deported at least once before he targeted the woman. Following the announcement of the lengthy sentence, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said “Garcia does not belong on Philadelphia’s streets and, as a result of today’s sentencing, he won’t be anymore.”
  • Darlin Navarro-Turcos, also from Honduras, who was sent back to the Central American country in 2015 after being convicted of assault in association with the stabbing death of a man on a Philadelphia street a year earlier. Navarro-Turcios, who had been going by the alias Darlin Mendoza-Sanders, served a year in jail over the attack and had entered the country illegally in March 2003, ICE said. Prior to the murder, he was convicted of driving under the influence. “The crime this criminal alien is associated with is heinous,” said Tom Decker, director of ICE’s Philadelphia Enforcement and Removal Operations office.
  • Edwin Estuardo Martinez-Ortega, who as an 18-year-old was deported from Philadelphia in 2014. Martinez-Ortega was identified by ICE as a fugitive wanted on murder charges in his native country of Guatemala, and was picked up by agents after they found him at a barber shop in Warminster, just north of Philadelphia. ICE said they were tracking his presence in the area after his brother Nectali Ortega-Duarte was arrested in 2011 and deported to Guatemala on charges linked to the same crime.

Federal authorities said they swept up 49 immigrants in the Philadelphia metro area in late May of this year during a “targeted enforcement operation” aimed at “criminal aliens, immigration fugitives, re-entrants, and other immigration violators.”
“This operation resulted in multiple arrests of criminal aliens, public safety threats, and individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” Philadelphia Acting Field Office Director Gregory Brawley said after the sweep. “Some of these dangerous individuals had been released to the streets instead of being turned over to ICE on our detainers, which compromises the safety of the homeland that ICE officers strive to protect every day.”
ICE did not reveal the identities of those taken into custody, but said they included a 52-year-old Mexican illegal immigrant alien who was charged with simple assault and terroristic threats, and a 26-year-old Haitian illegal immigrant alien who had been “convicted in the Common Pleas Court at Philadelphia, of robbery, possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault, and criminal attempt-theft by unlawful taking.”

Sanctuary Oregon: Illegal alien who was previously deported accused of nail gun rampage

This is a repost of an April 2018 blog post.

From Fox News: An illegal immigrant alien who was previously deported was arrested in Oregon on Saturday after he went on a rampage and almost killed his co-worker with a nail gun, officials said.

Jesus Ascencio-Molina, 24, a native of Mexico, was arrested on Saturday, April 14, after he assaulted Andres C. Marcelo, 24, of Wood Village, Ore., a fellow construction worker, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies were called to the scene of a home in Happy Valley after responding to reports of an assault.

Marcelo was injured after Ascencio-Molina allegedly shot at him with a nail gun. Ascencio-Molina fled on foot and was arrested the next day. Marcelo was injured but listed in stable condition, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Carissa Cutrell, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, told the Daily Caller the sheriff’s office would most likely not notify ICE if and when Ascencio-Molina is released from jail.

“Even though we lodged a detainer, due to Clackamas County’s policy of non-cooperation, it is unlikely that ICE will be notified in the event Ascencio-Molina is released from custody before his criminal case is resolved,” Cuttrell said.

Ascencio-Molina was deported in 2012 after he was charged in Multnomah County, Ore., the Daily Caller reported.

“Ascencio-Molina was previously detained by ICE on immigration violations in 2012 after ICE officer encountered him at the Multnomah County Detention Center after his arrest on local criminal charges,” Cuttrell said. “An immigration judge subsequently granted Ascencio-Molina voluntary departure to Mexico, and ICE returned him to his home country in 2013.”

It was not immediately known when Asencio-Molina returned to the U.S. ICE issued a formal detention request Monday to the Clackamas County Jail.

Ascencio-Molina was charged with assault and attempted murder and is currently at the Clackamas County Jail. His bail was set at $250,000.

Hollyweird problems: Actress Taryn Manning slams stylist for her $200 dress at the SAG Awards

taryn manning instagram picture

Taryn Manning: Wants to be dressed like a “superstar”


Taryn Manning is a 39-year-old actress best known for acting on the “Orange is the New Black” Netflix show.
She’s also known for assaulting her personal assistant. From Wikipedia:
On October 12, 2012, Manning was arrested for assaulting her personal assistant and makeup artist, Holli Hartman. The victim declined to prosecute and in November 2012, Manning took a plea bargain of one day of community service, and if she stayed out of trouble for the next six months, the case would be closed.
In 2016, Manning was accused of violently attacking Hartman yet again. The victim sought a restraining order against Manning but was denied due to jurisdictional filing issues. The attack was one of several Hartman claimed to have suffered with the most recent abuse occurring in late 2015 at Manning’s Manhattan apartment.”
Additionally she’s now known for, like the majority in Hollyweird, being out of touch with average Americans.
From Yahoo: Taryn Manning made headlines for donning a SAG Awards dress that was only $200 – and available at your favorite department store. But while many were thrilled to see an affordable dress at a major Hollywood awards show, one person wasn’t as happy about it: the Orange Is the New Black star herself.
Asked by TMZ about the choice to wear the Adrianna Papell gown, Manning criticized her stylist Chaunielle Brown for the choice. “It’s wack that my stylist didn’t tell me that,” she said. “Now everyone else can afford it, that’s what’s cool about it, but it still sucks for me. I want to be in like a superstar gown … So the designer got a lot of press. She should pay me a lot of money.
After her comments picked up steam on the internet, Manning clarified her position on Instagram, writing “I was completely caught off guard when all of the press about my dress was about the cost, which I knew nothing about, and I felt used for someone else’s gain.” She added that she loved the dress and is friends with Brown, and concluded “I am happy to be the proof that there is more to feeling confident, beauty and happy on the inside than just a price tag.”
Read the full “clarification” here on her Instagram account.
