So… En was walking back from the bus stop after work (this was a few hours ago)… a gaggle of police with guns and rifles drawn told her to get inside (in this case it was to the carpet shop at the end of our street).

The hooker and drug den at the end of our block (conveniently disguised as a hotel) had some incident that required the intervention of what seems like the SWAT team.

The police were just feet away from her.

I’m happy that the police decided to actually show up to a call (unlike ours…) but the fact that this is something that’s “normal” is just fucked up.

Welcome to fucking Seattle…
