God Bless our #GoodPolice but the #BadCops Have 2 Go!

SNOHOMISH COUNTY SHERIFF LIED TO ME: Nowhere has the Legislature indicated that the sheriff's powers and duties are limited to the unincorporated areas of the county. Nor is there any statutory language from which such a limitation might be inferred. We note, in addition, that the sheriff at common law was the chief law enforcement officer of the county, and that the office of sheriff retains its common law powers and duties unless modified by the constitution or statutes. Sheriffs, Police, and Constables § 2 (1987); seeState ex rel. Johnston v. Melton, 192 Wash. 379, 388-89, 73 P.2d 1334 (1937); AGO 51-53 No. 322 at 2. We thus conclude that the sheriff has a general duty to enforce state law in both unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county. "the jurisdiction of the sheriff in law enforcement matters normally extends throughout his county including the incorporated areas thereof." [The sheriff's] authority is county wide. He is not restricted by municipal limits. For better protection and for the enforcement of local ordinance[s] the [[Orig. Op. Page 4]] cities and towns have their police departments or their town marshals. Even the state has its highway patrol. Still the authority of the sheriff with his correlative duty remains.

Just Because I Have Style- Class- Grace & I Am Polite- Does NOT Mean You Are Free 2 ABUSE ME!

Style... Class... Grace.. Charm... Self Respect & Dignity- So sad that all of these are now seen as a punchline, a joke. God forbid a woman is polite, stylish, shows a little class. These days she is ripped apart and mentally beaten to a pulp. Even worse, taken advantage of & abused because she is seen as a pushover- easy to manipulate- not a strong woman. They are WRONG.. Very very wrong!  




  • "Get Ready Cuz I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!!" 
    "Held me down but I got up- already brushing off the dust"


    "Held me down but I got up!"

    No More Police Sexual Misconducts! This ends NOW- 
    Or I will DIE fighting to make it end & with NO regrets- Not One....
