Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has…

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Well, actually I do.

The demorat-run, liberal utopia of Seattle has a major homeless crisis.

The bureaucrats in that city and King County do nothing to actually address the real problems (drug addiction and mental health issues). Instead, they coddle the homeless and try to mislead the public on just how bad the homeless crisis is. Just search our web site for “Seattle” to read through the many posts I’ve done about their homeless/crime situation.

The King County prosecutor, Dan Satterberg, is a demorat who believes that “not all of society’s most complicated issues can be solved in a courtroom or with a prison cell.”

How’s that approach working for King County? Just last month from KIRO:

“There’s been a massive call to action after a damning report on the 100 most prolific offenders in Seattle. Business owners are fed up and want the criminals locked up for good. KIRO 7 has documented the same criminals being arrested over and over again. These offenders committed thousands of crimes in Seattle in just two months last year. Now, two-thirds of them are suspected of committing still more crimes since this report came out –107 new crimes in all.”

This liberal ideology of criminal justice reform (catch and release) and compassion for the homeless via taxation has resulted in zero deterrents in Seattle and King County for the criminals and homeless. Absolutely no deterrents.

Proof of this comes from MyNorthwest.com about a homeless criminal, with severe mental health issues, who attempted to kidnap a child. He has an EXTENSIVE criminal record:

A 47-year-old man charged last week with a violent attempt to kidnap a 9-year-old girl and break into a South Seattle apartment has been arrested 104 previous times in King County over the last 14 years, according to court records.

Seattle police arrested Randolph Neil Humiston on May 30th at 14th Ave. South and South Henderson Street after he allegedly grabbed and dragged a girl on a playground, according to charging documents.

Prosecutors say the girl kicked and screamed at Humiston until he released her.

Ernesto Martinez, who lives a short distance from the playground told KIRO 7 he first saw Humiston when he broke into Martinez’s apartment while his family was having dinner. “I never saw him before, but I saw him, and I yelled and chased him,” Martinez said. Seattle police say Martinez chased Humiston for several blocks until patrol cars arrived and arrested Humiston — for the 105th time since 2005.

“I told the police that if he actually took a little girl, they would be arresting me instead of that guy. I mean, I’m not going to let that happen.”

Court records indicate many times, Humiston was released within a day or two after being arrested, and he consistently listed his address as the Compass Housing Alliance in Seattle, indicating he is homeless.

Prosecutors noted Humiston was placed in the jail’s psych ward in 2017, and would “likely commit an act of violence,” if released.

Records indicate a few of the cases were dismissed because Humiston was found to be incompetent.

Humiston’s career criminal conviction resume’ includes four felonies, and 38 gross misdemeanors including “Threats to Kill, Assault, Resisting Arrest, Stalking, Escape, Indecent Exposure, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and many Vehicle Prowl” and multiple drug convictions, according to court records.

Humiston is currently being held on $150,000 bail. Martinez told KIRO 7 he will look for Humiston “In case he gets out again.”

“Somebody who’s trying to grab a little kid, especially when they’re all drugged up? He shouldn’t be out,” Martinez said. “If he gets out, it’s not a threat or anything, but if I see him here? I’m not going to just chase him, I’m going to tackle him.”

Keep electing these demorats, you silly Seattle voters. Just remember this: As Lophatt frequently reminds us, “They don’t work for us.”

To serve and protect? Slain Utah athlete repeatedly called school, Salt Lake City police about harasser

A primate example of why you cannot rely on anyone but yourself for your personal safety. A good reason to believe in the Second Amendment and exercise that right.

From Yahoo: Lauren McCluskey, the 21-year-old Utah track athlete who was abducted outside her Salt Lake City dorm and killed in October, had called both University of Utah police and Salt Lake City police multiple times to report her attacker’s harassment before her death, according to 911 calls obtained by CNN.

McCluskey was found dead in a parked car on campus on October 23 shortly after she had an argument outside of her residence hall with 37-year-old Melvin Rowland. McCluskey and Rowland had met in a bar in September and dated for about a month, per the report, before McCluskey learned that he was a convicted sex offender and had lied about his age and name. Rowland spent more than a decade in prison, was released on parole three times, and violated his parole and returned to prison twice. He killed himself hours after McCluskey’s death following a police chase.

McCluskey ended the relationship on October 9, blocked all communication from him and his friends, and even had university police accompany her to retrieve her car, which she had let him borrow. Rowland, though, wouldn’t leave her alone.

Over the next two weeks, according to CNN, McCluskey called University of Utah police multiple to report the harassment and an attempted extortion. She told police that she sent him $1,000 “in hopes of keeping compromising photos of her private.”

However McCluskey had grown frustrated at a lack of progress by university police, who she felt weren’t doing enough to stop Rowland, and started calling Salt Lake City police.

“I’m worried because I’ve been working with the campus police at the U, and last Saturday I reported and I haven’t gotten an update,” McCluskey told Salt Lake City police in a call to 911, via CNN. “They haven’t updated or done anything.”

She first called Salt Lake City police on October 13 after she had been blackmailed for money, per the report. They, though, advised her to call university police instead. When she called them a week later, they told her the same thing.

“I’ve contacted them already, I just wanted to talk to you as well,” McCluskey said in a call to 911, via CNN. “Yeah, I was just concerned because I wasn’t sure how long they were gonna take.”

University police conducted an internal review after her death, which the university said was not the result of any individual mistakes. The review also found university officers didn’t know how to look up criminal background or parole information.

“The review team’s report identified gaps in training, awareness and enforcement of certain policies rather than lapses in individual performance,” the university said, via CNN.

Her parents disputed the university’s report shortly after it was released. “There were numerous opportunities to protect her during the almost two weeks between the time when our daughter began expressing repeated, elevating, and persistent concerns about her situation and the time of her murder,” Jill and Matthew McCluskey wrote.
