This week we ponder the power of protest

Sep 16, 2016

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has announced that the plans for the new North Precinct building will be put on hold. He says the city needs to consider the cost of the building and impact it will have on communities of color. What should happen as the city re-draws the plan?                

Republican state Senator Mark Miloscia of Federal Way says Seattle needs some adult supervision. He said that after the Seattle City Council said it’s considering easing up on homeless people camping on public property. What is his plan and how would it work?

And what can we learn from a week of outrage, concern and conspiracy theories surrounding Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia?
