And for those who are simply too busy to read more than a few paragraphs:

Bellevue police said the same day of the murder last week, someone tried to drag a kid off a Metro bus. A Good Samaritan stepped in to help but the suspects followed the bus in their car.

When officers stopped the suspects' car, police said the suspects called in their own backup, and two carloads of people showed up, circling police in an attempt to intimidate Bellevue officers.

So, my buddy calls up and says he's being harassed by police.  Unlikely I show up to help him fight them, but say I do.  I get there and they explain he's arrested for attempted kidnapping, I'm out of there.

Ok, cops wouldn't explain themselves they would just expect obedience with no explanation, which probably would piss me off making me stand my ground.

Man, I'd be pretty embarrassed when I did find out what my buddy was charged with.   I wonder what the rest of the story is.

Sounds like it wasn't a kidnapping or there would be word in the report of an arrest. I'm willing to bet it was the parent/guardian and the kid was trying to run away or something like that - still the reaction to get 'backup' probably shows you why the kid ran away to begin with...

Vaccines are a public health issue. You don't get vaccinated, you endanger the public.

Producing rotten kids is also a public issue. Your little terror grows up to kidnap, murder, and become a burden on society.

Maybe its time to for Parent Licenses. Classroom study... Simulated parenting tests. (Your kid wants to join a gang, what do you do?)

Even the best parents can sometimes produce a rotten apple. But at least we can reduce some of the low hanging terrible crotch fruit.

TFA says Police Chief thinks it's gang related. Sounds like a new gang set up in town and the cops have no intention of tolerating it.
 
2019-04-12 10:23:39 AM  
There's got to be more to the story, how the hell does anyone think that getting into a standoff with police to aid a kidnapping is a good idea.
 
2019-04-12 10:30:02 AM  
At the police's preferred ratio of police to perps of 10:1, police can be very aggressive and will not tolerate anything less than complete and instant compliance.

When those numbers are reversed, I'm sure they are far more polite and willing to carefully explain the situation.

I find it telling there is no mention of an arrest after the standoff.

Some neighbors at Wednesday's meeting were concerned that the increased police presence in the Crossroads neighborhood would lead to racial profiling.

I wonder where a murder for the 1st time in 3 years along with an attempted broad daylight kidnapping that leads to a confrontation between the suspect and police in which the suspect calls in his own backup ranks in their list of concerns.

Some cultures have long understood that nothing succeeds like excessive force.

When it comes to accomplishing a goal, police are merely a speedbump to either be bribed into submission or taken out of play.

When the citizens are more concerned about the behavior of the police than crime, maybe the police should consider why that is the case and change their farking behavior.

It's sad that they're more worried that police presence would lead to "racial profiling" than the prevention of more crimes. It's not that certain colored people are being arrested due to them being the "wrong color", they're arrested for doing criminal acts.

They already stopped the child abduction. The kid was on the bus. The part we're talking about happened later after stopping the attempted kidnapper in his car. And unless you have evidence suggesting otherwise, yes, the people present were unarmed and nonviolent and under no circumstances should be gunned down.

Bellevue police said the same day of the murder last week, someone tried to drag a kid off a Metro bus. A Good Samaritan stepped in to help but the suspects followed the bus in their car.
When officers stopped the suspects' car, police said the suspects called in their own backup, and two carloads of people showed up, circling police in an attempt to intimidate Bellevue officers.

a)  It is completely reasonable to believe if the attempted abductor is still following the victim they intend on completing the act
b) regardless by all reports the driver tried to abduct a child and no angry mob is going to stop a cop from investigating that/arresting the guy

I've never seen someone white knighting a group that tried to kidnap a kid but alas here we are.

blahpers: A bunch of unarmed and nonviolent civilians surrounding cops does not give the cops license to just start murdering their way out.


And if the group was peaceful and posing no threat to the officers, my statement of using force wouldn't apply, now would it?

I specifically said "if they were behaving in a threatening manner/posing a threat."

Perhaps work on your reading skills?
