Seattle’s OPA is doing exactly what it’s meant to do.
Seattle’s struggling to hold police accountable but so is everyone else.
When I say “defund the police” I mean completely. And by police I mean the specific organizations overseeing “law enforcement” tasks out on the streets. I mean, I don’t expect the horrors of the world to vanish in turn. But, let’s not kid ourselves either, a real security plan for a healthy society includes very […]
I came upon this scene shortly after SPD placed at least three people under arrest. One of the arrestees is unconscious when I arrive. I didn’t see the arrests. Woman appears to fade in and out of consciousness as crowd forms to press SPD to care for the woman. Tense scene, real concern for woman’s […]
President of Seattle Police Officers Guild Confirms the Delusion of an Entire Vocation in Local Interview
By Futureman Omari, who needs no introduction in Seattle, interviewed the president of the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild, Mike Solan, yesterday, Wednesday, July 10th. It was frustrating to watch. I wanted to see Solan loosen his collar while getting grilled under Omari’s Hot-Lamp of Truth but mostly Solan just seemed as frustrated as I was […]

By Futureman The economy is the system we use to extract, develop and distribute natural resources from the earth to sustain human life. “Economics,” as the term is known around town, is a set of arguments used to justify withholding critical resources, such as food, housing or healthcare, on the basis of maintaining a “favorable […]
By Futureman Last night, June 21st, I joined the nightly protest that walks from CHOP to SPD’s West Precinct in downtown Seattle and back. We stopped on I-5 for something like an hour as we made our return. Washington State Patrol, I assume, because I’d seen them staged on the freeway in days prior, blocked […]
By Futureman I said it wasn’t a “bombastic claim” to call the police terrorists. I wrote that here, a week or two ago. I’ve spent my time since trying to convince myself that I was, in fact, being bombastic. I’m prone to overreaction. Like recently I’ve suspected that the government’s trained local crows against me […]
