"Stopped in Issaquah today to highlight the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act. Schrier is co -sponsoring legislation that would join the powers of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. The bill establishes an organized retail crime coordinator center within the Department of Homeland Security. Organized retail crime comes at a cost of $700 billion a year nationwide, almost $3 billion here in Washington. These stolen goods are online sold and the money these crime rings bring in fuels other illicit activities related to trafficking of drugs and trafficking of people and weapons and more. The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee. Similar legislation has been introduced in the US Senate. We're learning more about the teenager who died after he was struck by the Seattle monorail on Sunday night. His mother sat down with Como Forest in East Whitaker. Alison Gardner tells me it really is sad that her son made a mistake that absolutely cannot be undone. Seattle police say Xavier Gayton was spray painting on this building next to the monorail when the train hit him. That all happened Sunday night right around nine o 'clock. There are now several messages painted on the side of the building that say RIP ANAM, the tag the 14 year old used when painting and that one I've seen included in several of his social media posts. Gardner tells me she and his father, who she said Xavier has been staying with this summer, had warned him about what could happen in such a situation. So what's important to me in this situation is that people don't focus on the fact that he was doing something criminal or doing something that they believe he shouldn't have been doing. He was a 14 year old boy who was creative and had a passion for this art. In this case, it is tragic that passion ended up in his death. Come before Denise Whitaker, King the County prosecuting attorney's office says it will not pursue charges against Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith. Smith was arrested in January of last year for investigation of driving under the influence and reckless driving. say Prosecutors Smith's blood alcohol level was less than half the legal limit for driving while his THC concentration was below the level needed to prove driving under the influence. Police also said Smith was speeding and leaving his lane. However, prosecutors said there's no evidence to prove he was disregarding the safety of people or property on the road. Washington State Ferries is celebrating the opening of the new ferry terminal at Coleman Dock. More from Northwest News Radio's Jeff Pojalup. Parts of the terminal have already been open for weeks, several if not months, but that's a testament to the fact that Coleman Dock could never fully shut down for construction. Everything had to be done piecemeal with crews working around an active transportation hub and not everything is complete. Vehicles are still queuing up in a temporary holding area and a pedestrian overpass is still being finished. But spokeswoman Sue Ann Pelley says the outdoor waiting area for walk -on passengers is now open with breathtaking views of it sound in the Olympic Mountains. We've got ticketing outside here as well as there's kiosks inside, but this gives pedestrians a great way to meet their friends and get on their boats and have a convenient spot and then head into the terminal for their trip. At Coleman Dock, Jeff Pojola, Northwest News Radio. a For over decade, urban planners in Seattle have dreamed of a mega project to heal the wound inflicted when I -5 divided downtown. Now, Northwest News Radio's Corwin Haake reports the so -called I -5 lid finally has landed on the city council's agenda. Institutional inequity was perhaps at its apex in the early 1960s when Seattle agreed to cleave itself in half by digging a freeway directly through the city, forever separating downtown from its eastern and central neighborhoods. Now, City of Seattle urban designer Lyle Bicknell tells a city council committee times have changed. Stitching together communities that have been divided historically, especially by these kinds of facilities, is a high priority. Council member Andrew Lewis says a lid I over -5 would recreate long -lost real estate. What is currently the air above these concrete that are just used for vehicles to pass through the heart of our city could be space that is used to reunite the community. They could be space for community amenities. It could be a place for the new social housing PDA to have a portion of the real estate. There's no approved design and financing would be a complicated combo of state and federal funding. Still, Lewis and other committee members are now considering the lid proposal as perhaps Seattle's next mega project. Corwin Haake, Northwest News Radio.
