“How do you think we should talk to kids about newer, more powerful drugs?” A possibleRead More answer: kids like Lady Gaga; Gaga smokes pot; therefore dope is ok. Nude, crude and rude, Gaga flaunts doping, while perhaps hoping, “to be on the front line of endorsement deals,” once marijuana needs marketers as surmised Will Hermes, a senior critic for “Rolling Stone.” http://lakewood-jblm.patch.com/groups/david-g-andersons-blog/p/pop-stars-promo-pot
Patrick Omeara died from gunshot wounds inflicted by Lakewood Police Officers Darrell Moore and Jeremy Vahle.

If your proposals were adoptes & adhered to, I believe it would make a difference. These kind ofRead More (mentally disturbed) citizen-police interactions are more & more frequent & the first outcomes (death for the citizen) & second outcomes (shooting ruled 'righteous' ) are as predictable as clockwork. The multiple bullets discharged indicates "overkill" or lack of control. Since we have more & more citizenry not being served by mental health facilities (cut due to no funds) local police agencies (& the populations tbey "serve & protect") would be enhanced by more than one tool in their toolbox.

Those officers were only doing their jobs. And when a weapon is aimed at an officer and their livesRead More are at risk, then they have to do their jobs and protect themselves just like any other Person. Ofc Moore is a personal friend as well as an outstanding officer and does his job well. We support our Lakewood police dept and their officers.

KILLER COPS ON THE LOOSE....THIS SHIT HAD BETTER STOP SOON OR THERE IS GOING TO BE ALOT OF DEAD COPSRead More OUT THERE,THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PUT UP WITH BEFORE THEY START SHOOTING BACK.......DOES HIS JOB WELL YEA KILLING PEOPLE
The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office will be asking the judge to sentence Jake J. Musga to 60 years to life in prison.
Tammy Little Caruthers-McLaughlin September 12, 2013 at 04:07 am
60 years...even death wouldn't be good enough for this low life. The child's mother should be rightRead More in there with him...When will women stop letting their children be abused, hurt, and murdered because they CHOOSE these pieces of garbage? Let ANYONE ever hurt one of my kids and there won't be one cent of the tax payer's money spent on court/trial fees. The only good thing is that he will get his just deserves once the other inmates find out what he did.

I can certainly understand the public's anger over this. It is hard to believe that a man who wouldRead More do such a thing could be anything other than a danger in the community. I hope the judge will grant prosecution's request for lengthy sentence.

its not always the moms fault. i know the mom personally. anyone can leave to celebrate they'reRead More birthday and something bad happen. soooo #shutyourmouth!!

Thank you Jesus for saving this dog!

Hmm. Dane, A better home than the one he was raised and trained in, so that he could serve theRead More community as a Narcotics Dog. Sounds like you are ok with more drugs staying on the street.
Dane Ferrell October 23, 2013 at 12:23 pm
Robert, if we addressed the inequality problem in this country, and decriminalized drugs,(people whoRead More do have a problem would be more likely to seek help if they were not worried about going to jail) a lot of the crime associated with drugs would disappear, so yes the dog may make a nice family pet for someone.
A multi-agency investigation concluded that the May 23 shooting of Benjamin Thomas by Metro CRU SWAT and Lakewood officer Brian Markert was justified.

The TNT version said "He also entered and exited the house a number of times with the boyRead More either in his arms or held in front of him, authorities said." So next time out of the house they shot him? Rather than hide each side of the door and grab him?
Joe Oline January 28, 2014 at 12:41 am
If you watch this video of the event you will see that this story has holes. Leonard Thomas was aRead More good person who needed help, he was my friend and it sickens me the way police handle these situations! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQGehv62LeQ
