SEATTLE — Seattle's police chief and former KING 5 journalist Lori Matsukawa have a message for the community (snip) NBC reports a Seattle woman was in line at a grocery store when she overheard another shopper say she and her child couldn't be in the same line as a Korean-American. According to new data from an online reporting forum shared with NBC, in one week there were more than 650 instances of racist acts against the Asian American community in the United States. "We will document and investigate every reported crime, even racist name-calling should be reported to police," said Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best in a video to the community.

Comments:

Name calling treated as a crime by police chief, though it is not.

Prove it!!!! It's that simple, either find the "evil racist" that did this horrible "hate crime" of not wanting to be near an Asian person, or shut the Pelosi up!!!!!! I am positive that I heard Lori Matsukawa call all lesbians a bad name. So Lori Matsukawa, you have been accused, so you clearly did it. Using lie-beral "logic" you are guilty until proven innocent!!!!

The statement that a woman and her child couldn't be in the same line as a Korean-American is not name-calling. It's an opinion like any other. But OUR HEROES will investigate...rather than first response it's over response.

President Donald Trump’s negative remarks about Washington Gov. Jay Inslee as the state and nation respond to the novel coronavirus pandemic “haven’t knocked us off our game at all,” (snip) The governor has clashed with Trump in recent days over the federal government’s response to the crisis, trading comments and tweets as Inslee has urged the president to provide states with more aid and equipment. “None of us here are being distracted by the background noise that might come out of the White House,” Inslee said in a news conference (snip) “Our job is too important to save constituents and our neighbors and our families from this deadly virus.”

The White House criticized Wednesday the Seattle-area NPR station’s recent decision to stop airing the coronavirus task force press briefings. “It’s not surprising, but also a failure of their duty to the American people, that some media outlets would choose to block their audiences from receiving accurate, up-to-date information on President Trump’s whole-of-government approach to slowing the spread of COVID-19,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told Daily Caller. (snip) KUOW, the NPR station broadcasting across Washington’s Puget Sound, announced Tuesday night that they “will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information that cannot be fact checked in real time.”

Whew. A lot of pot-shop and liquor-store customers and owners were worried plenty. In panic buying in recent weeks because the coronavirus might shutter both types of shops, they reported sales increases of 20% to 30%, and sometimes more. But good news! Pot shops and many, if not most, liquor stores in this state are considered “essential businesses” and can stay open under Gov. Jay Inslee’s stay-at-home order issued Monday.

In rallying for the nation’s second-largest school district to transition to online instruction in the face of a pandemic, the head of Los Angeles’ public schools said this on Monday: “We face the largest adaptive challenge for large urban public education systems in a generation. Pick your metaphor: This is the moon shot, the Manhattan Project, the Normandy landing, and the Marshall Plan, and the clock is ticking.” So Los Angeles announced an “unprecedented commitment” of $100 million in emergency funding to get all students who need them both devices and internet access (snip) Compare to what school leaders have been saying here.

To combat the novel coronavirus, Gov. Jay Inslee is ordering Washington residents to stay at home, except for crucial activities. Residents can still leave to buy groceries, seek medical care and go to work at essential businesses, Inslee said in a live televised address Monday evening, and they can still engage in outdoor activities that can be done 6 feet away from others, such as walking and biking. But the new order requires the closure of nonessential business places and, the governor said, “is enforceable by law,” though broad crackdowns by officers aren’t expected. (snip) Any nonessential businesses still operating must close in 48 hours
No school: Can you stop

The property tax in Washington state is a key vehicle to fund government schools. The boss of government schools, and promoter of school curricula that treats kids as sexual beings from birth, Chris Reykdal, has suggested that districts dealing with coronoavirus not teach children, even online, because: “equity.” So, can you stop paying your property taxes since Reykdal has caused schools to stop teaching? Maybe Reykdal has a good reason for his official opinion. Chris Reykdal’s position is that, so long as one child doesn’t have a smart phone or computer and/or Internet access, no child will receive online education.

By Friday morning, the governors of New York and California had ordered — with significant exceptions — all their residents to stay home, to try to limit, as much as possible, the spread of the novel coronavirus. Other states soon followed: New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois. At least 1 in 5 Americans have been ordered to stay home. Residents of Western Washington, where the outbreak hit first and, initially, hardest, have not. Instead, Gov. Jay Inslee is doing everything he can to keep people from leaving the house without outright ordering it.

Faced with mounting coronavirus infections, California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday issued sweeping new restrictions in California, calling for home isolation of everyone in the state over age 65 and people with chronic disease, both high-risk populations. He also asked for closure of bars, wineries, night clubs and brew pubs, and called for restaurants to reduce their occupancy by half. He called that “deep social distancing” and a “pragmatic response to the moment.” The dramatic announcement, designed to keep people away from each other, stopped short of closing restaurants. Instead, the governor said they can also operate at reduced capacity and with curbside food service and at-home food deliveries.

After passing the largest economic relief bill in history, Congress is now considering staying away from Washington for a month or more as the coronavirus makes even the routine act of legislating a dangerous risk for new transmissions. Officially, Congress is scheduled to come back on April 20 as lawmakers try to avoid traveling and congregating amid the raging crisis and as they plot a potential fourth phase of economic relief. Unofficially, it could take even longer for Congress to physically come back into session. And longer still for things to return to anywhere near normal on Capitol Hill, where
