Let's get the the hard news from Astros seven in Seattle. We've got Seattle. Police Captain Arrested in undercover vice operation. Watch chat for those vices so this was turns out cops have vices to know not buses vices crimes title of a great book. It really. Yeah it it does sound great. Yeah who wrote that book. Do you know no okay. Okay so this is the crime. I don't think so. No certainly not but let's get into it so The victim no crime. The this was a couple of weeks ago so this was published on November. Twenty four th but I think actually happened about a month ago happened mid November but it took a while l. for the information to trickle out like they didn't report his name and I wanted to know you know I want to see the guy's picture like they do with everybody else they grab. I have a picture of the Mug shot. No they've got his captain photo. You know he's looking all smiley in uniform and tie no so thirty. One year veteran and police department captain so that means he's been on the force for thirty one years now that he's thirty one years old. He's fifty three. Captain was arrested by his fellow officers during a vice sting late Wednesday in an investigation of Sexual Exploitation Loyd Haitian that is that what they call it. They're they're being exploited in ridiculous. I think they're exploiting him. That's the problem. Yeah that's what they're looking out now for our money these these broads charge too much. You're being exploited. According to several sources fifty three year old veteran Seattle police captain Randall. woolery offered forty dollars others to an undercover officer who was posing as a prostitute and he was arrested on the spas. Say what the forty dollars was four. Can you guess I mean. It doesn't seem like enough for anything I would think a standard rate is okay that that could be. Aj or VJ. Maybe yeah or something even like spanking or something kinky. That's just not even a big deal pictures or something. Yeah something like that. Well well I wish they got into the details of this and maybe we'll find out later through like court documents. What actually transpired? But if if the mainstream media bothers to go and actually dig that information they haven't been that's what's been so hard to get even the guy's name. This is the only publication that said his name from which I found well. The police protect their own to some extent shots usually that they don't release information about officers who've been charged until they absolutely have to well and he's a captain so he was his cabinet happened. Okay so that's like second to chief basically think Oh yeah. Yeah he's very high up the rank right woolery. He was one of five men arrested in the Aurora sting. That's a street in Boston. And according to jail records he was. You said Boston Seattle. Excuse me this is. Seattle happened in Seattle. Sorry just slipping. And according to jail records he was booked and released in less than thirty minutes. What about the other four? Probably not I guess that the other four probably stayed the night woolery works. We can't put. We can't keep police. Captain opt in holding down there with the people that he's arrested perhaps right so you can't put them in with the rest of the people and the rest of the jails full so oh also he might get fired if we mistreat him or don't let him go. Must be bad for morale. You see the Boston sell. Yeah maybe the maybe the underlings will get excited because there's an opening. Hey here's an opportunity job to make a statement about prostitution Shen or or a sex work from the police here. I hope so because I always love to hear these ridiculous statements about why this should be illegal and why it's so bad. Well let's frame. I'm at a little bit about this guy. Wool rain the one who was arrested. The captain works in Seattle Police Departments Professional Standards Bureau where he reviews Officers use of force so he's reviewing other officers all the time.

"In touch coming up with a Katie, Mike Todd show or Mike Lewis on a report of the popularity of the Seattle city council, does it matter because apparently it really does for this counsel. Michael, tell us about that carolina'll soil will connect the Katie, Mike and Todd Show Low. So we're gonna talk parking, and, and Justice, Justice and is just as blind. And Kristen according to Kristen Bogan. She says for over twenty five years, her family has owned a four plex and a five plex right next to each other two blocks away from Greenlee the units are a stone's throw away from I five. And also there's an unsanctioned homeless camp. And I talked to her via her cell phone about that camp that move near her property a couple years ago. They were like the nation's let that area, a put up assigned thanks day out a fixed offense, of course. So they move up. The street and then what dot com. No sleep s fix cook assigned that. And then within a month, they'll get back break the fence open again. Tear the signs down, and they'll be that so Kristen's frustrated already when it comes to that camp in the homeless who lived there. She thinks it's a vicious cycle. And now, though, she says that she's been observing that some of the homeless, they're getting to park for free. That's a no parking area husband. They will come there and Kirk. There used to be heading kurkin charlatans. Now there's only one and a half, they kicked or they, you know, they'd have kicked the puck and China. They continue to cook there overnight. The one car for two weeks straight coming and going, accorded him on the shine that six up, but I don't think anything happened. They just close and Jimmy comment. No parking is so tight in that neighborhood as, as it is for most areas in Seattle with his sport. Exactly. So, but the one thing she says she's been able to count on is to be able to call, you know, that this, the parking enforcement is Johnny on the spot when it comes to giving those tickets out, usually coming when I cars, because because we have the pike in over driveway, I had a Gallo parking strip, so they're usually really means Kabanov keep a Nick change they only to retire back tomato close it. And she says it it's. Common sense that she thinks that, that silver car parking in the no parking area is not getting ticketed. I don't know for sure, but he was cracking there every day. So I still like cable asking ticketed. He, he wouldn't park there. Now, we did a public disclosure requests on that silver car for tickets and it turns out the car has gotten to tickets in the past month, one from the spot that Kristin was referring to an another at a different location in the city. Neither of those tickets have been paid. And so we asked the question, you know, that was brought up back in two thousand seventeen councilman, Michael Brian wanted to bring up an ordinance that basically because why give tickets to people that, you know, they can't afford them. That was kind of the premise of the ordinance when folks are productively trying to get out of the situation. They're in India, permanent housing, to simply ticket in ticket and tow them doesn't improve their situation. It doesn't make things any better for the neighbourhood. So now this ordinance didn't go anywhere because people got got leaked out and people got wind of it. They were very upset. By it. And so right now, there's no protection is it's, it's not legal for, you know, homeless to park for free. But Kristen says that the homeless, we'll let me listen to the set, Michael Bryant is he talking about what the ordinance would have done this legislation would not create any sort of exemption from the laws for any class of citizens, people who live in our views, otherwise, it would not change the parking regulations as far as where people can park where they can't and what the time limits are, what a would do would create an alternate enforcement path for folks that voluntarily want to participate in a vehicle residents program folks that are greet to be in this program would be identified as working collaboratively with the city, our departments are contractors to beginning the services they needed, and ultimately the ultimate goal, of course, is getting folks back into permanent housing. Yeah. I think Caroline does so. Many people see this is talking to someone about this this morning. So many people say, I park my car a half hour over I'm ticketed. I'm gonna pay. I have to clean up the garbage behind my business. I don't get to have trash all around my business. I have zoning rules about how. So I can build how I can extend my house at cetera out or a cottage in back. And then there's a class of people who appear to have absolute free rein over the city. And yes, they're poor. And yes, some of them are homeless looking for help and a whole bunch of them are not looking for help. They have found what they want in my judgment. And that is to live this way. I think it drives people crazy that they pay the freight for people like this, even with compassion in their hearts, even with compassion. I just think it really, really search to, to rake in people's credibility. What are we talking about in terms of revenue from parking in this regard? Well, just parking infractions in general. I mean, it's a cash cow millions and millions of dollars. I did a piece on parking, I think about a year ago, and it was like I am pulling this completely out. But it was like, you know, just millions and millions and millions millions millions beyond belief. I want to say forty million, but it could be more. It could be less. But the point is, is that, you know, right now, there are no laws that protect people living in their vehicles from getting ticketed. So I asked the Seattle police department to explain the parking anomaly, anomaly, and Kristen's neighborhood. And you know if if the city is picking and choosing who they give tickets to, and Sean Whitcomb with the SPD wouldn't agree to an interview, but he did send this comment that police officers and parking enforcement officers have a great deal of discretion when enforcing the traffic code enforcement can take the form of written notice infraction or a warning. And, you know, I think that, that's a sticking point for a lot of people who feel like. If you know, O'Brien's ordinance would have if they got a pass on the tickets, then they would have gotten services to then get, you know, work that way toward getting into housing this situation. It's like there's no accountability. King five news reported that paid street parking generates thirty-seven million for the city annually, another twenty one point eight million raised from tickets Mike twenty one point eight million. So that is a cash cow. I've heard from cops Carolina soil. They are not to, they are not to approach the RV's. They're not to report the RV's for bad parking not even if it's a fire zone, not even if it's in a handicapped zone that if it is a RV that someone's living in there, not to have anything to do with this. These are street, cop's not parking enforcement officers. But the rumor has been in our area hands off the RV's. Have you heard the same thing? I've heard the same thing about parking. And so this one, I pushed Sean a little bit and said, hey, can you give us can you tell us what the deal is with this? This guy's been parking here for two weeks. He's gotten one ticket. You know what's the deal and he said, I, I'll have to get back with you. But I don't think that we're gonna get an answer on that, from the city, you know, because what is the answer, there, is there a plan? I don't I don't think so at this point based on my research. I mean, I know that I have no doubt cops telling you this. But I've watched three RV's get towed in the last three weeks. That's good in my neighborhood. So I don't know that that's necessarily true. The mayor did announce that change. And so maybe it's changing, I would hope it may be. But, I mean, I've watched them for the last year, I've had Washington, gotta understand. There's the problem of them recirculating back in and things like that. But the cops, I've talked to have said that they've been told not to, but they do like, like Caroline was saying they have enormous discretion on what they choose to enforce or not enforce far as tickets go somewhere in this is truth..

The PD's natural resources manager, Keith meekly tells me from April to October the water temperature gets warmer in layers as you move toward the surface of Spada lake depending on needs, we can actually blend that with the water from the Harry bottom of the reservoir to kind of dial it into exactly what the fish needs are particular time of year and life stage. They can do that because they drill them added a system of pipes that can draw water from different. Players and drop it into the river. The result basically says was not only a return of coho salmon to an area. They hadn't been in nearly a century, but that they return just about a week after the temperature change.

"Up emojis are showing up in courtrooms. Do you? Remember an license plates. Yeah. I suppose quorums back in the day. Do you? Remember when Email spam was just starting to become a thing. Yes. With my internet radio company. We did a piece of kind of journalism or recall congressional offices and asked him if it be okay, if we sent them spam and nine hundred ten oh, sure. We love to get some spam. They thought I said, well, can we Email it to you? You can Email was spam. And we get policy people on the phone. They had no idea. We're talking about like Email this is. Yeah. When they wouldn't spam was not more associated with Email, then with a with a sort of sort of products, we had a Utah state legislator come on one time because he wanted to he was behind this move to force Email to get a stamp on it. Do you remember that? There was the post office made a move that the emails that have to be stamped and then routed by the post office, and they'd say it only like a delay of a day. And I asked him on the air is how long does it take to send now and he said. No idea. So now courtrooms you're going to have to deal with emojis in Seattle or our area. Yes. Seattle one in five people booked into jail are homeless. Let's break this down in Mike in a way to try to reach some agreement. Let's let's start with is it good to have our jails filled with with people homeless. Well, so it's good to have jails filled. Unless unless you're actually fill in jail now they could get him. So the fact that people who are homeless are being arrested more commonly than others, and there's a this assist in here. I doubt they say homeless people were arrested less often for assault than the general population. I doubt that I doubt that they have fewer assaults. I just think probably general population is reported more often this surprises that people who are homeless end up getting arrested more. No because they have more interactions with police. Do. I mean, they're there. I mean, it's almost a self selecting group of people I have seen the reason to doubt the that. They so in the statistics, this is a story in really good story in cross cut, and it about probably as always a great, David chrome story. And what they're saying is that one in five people in one five homeless one in five jail. Bookings is the result of is a homeless person. Yeah. The reason that they say that this is largely true is not violent crimes it tends to be drug crimes. Really? It tends to be a lot of FDA's FDA's failure to appear break in. You've been busted for something else. Yeah. You did not show up in court, then soon as you have an interaction with the cop, and if you are using drugs, or if you're hanging out in certain areas, your interactions with the cops are more likely than not and that FDA comes up, even if you're not doing anything, they're interviewing you, and they run a background check. And that FDA comes up the pop immediately. They're taking your jail, you're probably not spending a law. Longtime in there may be a week. But then they said that the problem that's with with sending them up for that, particularly if it's an FDA on a on a non violent crime is that you then lose you can lose all of the stuff. You're your idea all that stuff? That's maybe back in a shelter or in a tent somewhere. And that puts you on route that makes it difficult to get out of that cycle. And then there's another nuance to this that when you're arrested at that point, you're homeless you also get taken out of line if you're in line for treatment. Right. Okay. So here's here's my pitch. Let's stop the. Let's stop this roundabout. Let's stop the merry go round. We all see what's going on. I know cops who arrested the same person three times in one day. I knew a cop who took the same lady to Harborview three times in one day because she was standing in the middle of I five we've got to prioritize in my opinion. This the ability to re to detain an adult for mental health reasons in our state. Yes that requires funding. And yes, I'm happy to have a conversation about how we could find that money. And I think we can do it through a lot of streamlining number two. I. I think we have to say as a city and find a methodology to say you're going to treatments you're going to drug treatment, or we're just gonna make it an absolute hassle to live here. It's it's inhumane to continue this merry go round, particularly when you have someone who doesn't want it. So I always prioritize the families of people who want to help parties them. But this is something we've gotta get the will to do and get a handle on because it's expensive. It's bad. It's a crime to the city and it's inhumane to do otherwise. Yeah. No. I you won't find any disagreement with me. I mean, I absolutely believe that we need both drug and mental health services available. We have them at available at a much lower rate than we do. Then then then then the demand exists. So so yes, absolutely. We need to do that. And the data also shows some other kind of unusual things in that when you're dealing with when you're dealing with this particular population, a lot of them would tell you. But the homeless people are homeless in Seattle will tell you that. That they're in the police would say this as well. Like the problem. Also is that the intersection with the homeless is frequently police, and they're not actually the best ones equipped to sort of make that assessment and move someone on if a cop shows up a cop is there to stop a crime. That's, you know, it's not it's not really complicated. And and there's a lot of discussion here with Sean Whitcomb was the booze. The public spa is the spokesman for the for the Seattle police department essentially says this exact problem like we show up. We are there to make sure a crime is not happening. If we see a crime when they were there to arrest someone, so we're not actually engaging with these people prior to that and those programs that they've done in sort of test test results in Snohomish county whatnot. What you're where the cops are actually paired up with a social worker, they find that. That's actually a pretty good pretty effective tool for routing people into the services that they need because I think the Seattle police department has a really tough road. Yeah. In this in this particular town, right now, what are the most profound lessons? I've ever learned was from a guy named Dan record. And Danny was a homeless guy. I used to work with homeless people because I used to have them hang doorknobs. Hang hang ads in your door. Now in the lesson was when he didn't intend to teach me because Dan told me we went we met him in the park one night. I recognize him because it worked with them. I'd hired him to do these things we go out and take these ads and phone books. But I saw him in the park one night, my buddy. And I were there playing guitar Dan came over he was drunk getting drunk with the body, but he took into teaching me about homelessness, and Dan said, here's the thing. I will never be a rubber bomb. I'm an outdoor camping enthusiasts. I don't want regular job. I don't want regular Iran's. I'm going to continue to stay out here. I don't take drugs I drink. That's all I do. I'll never fall down this rabbit hole. And he used to Mike Houston. He would cost of people that guys a rubber bomb that guy's a bridge bomb that guy's a hole in the rock bomb. This guy's and he'd have all these different cask systems. So I hadn't seen Danny in probably two years. I'm walking. Downtown outside. And there's a guy his here's a gash in his forehead. He's bleeding all over I stopped because he's a human being, and he's bleeding, and it was with a young woman. I was dating. And I said, hey, brother you. Okay. And then what? Oh my God. It's dan. He looked at me and goes, well, I guess I couldn't keep it together. And if forced him in the my car took him to the hospital, he would not go to Seattle to take me to the district and Mike they knew him by name. And I asked him when we're sitting there a sedan. If someone had forced you to take help back in the day when you said, you'd never be a rubber bomb or a bridge mummy. He cried he semi bridge bummed. Now. I said if they'd force you to take help would have taken it instead. Well, I guess I'd have to I wanted to have that will never want to see another Dan in that circumstance to dovetailed into the into the cross. Cut stories are good Seattle. Seattle time story on actually interviews with home folks in what and these are people who've actually managed to get out back into into a house situation. And almost all of them said like getting some sort of permanent structure is the first step because if you are cycling in and out of homelessness, and you never get into some chance to sort of stabilize in some form of housing that you're not worried about every day losing not in not not housing like shelter, like housing housing that seems to have sort of a long-term benefit at least for.
