We now know a little more [emphasis mine] about the shooting that occurred yesterday in
Bothell downtown Seattle:
The shooting suspect is being held at the King County Jail, under investigation of being a felon in possession of a firearm, assault and committing a crime while under DOC supervision. He served prison time for selling cocaine.
Well done! Another non-violent criminal turned into a violent one thanks to the drug war. Are we winning yet?
UPDATE: Richard Pope in the comments has dug up the full list of this man’s violations and it’s a long one, starting in 4-2000 when he was either 12 or 13. It looks like I was a little too quick to assume what I did here. I will be re-implementing my “no posting after DL” policy immediately. :)
