You may not be able to take light rail all the way to the Sea-Tac terminal, but at least you'll get a windscreen and a heater for your walk. We'll tell you what's coming and what's not. 

Also, a Seattle mother is organizing a letter-writing campaign to Donald Trump from America's children. 

And if Seattle is getting too crowded for you, or too corporate, or too whatever, why not move to paradise, also known as Tacoma?

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin had another big day today. After his amazing touchdown pass Sunday, he appeared before a legislative task force in Olympia arguing that the state should change the law that makes it difficult for police to be prosecuted for deadly killings. We going to hear both sides of that debate.

Deborah Wang speaks with Jeff Robinson, about the possibility of changing Washington state law that protects law enforcement officers involved in a deadly shooting. The law currently states that police officers can only be convicted of the shooting if it is proved they acted with "malice" and with a lack of "good faith." Those are the most protective standards in the country. Robinson believes the law unfairly shields police from prosecution. Robinson is deputy legal director and director of the Trone Center for Justice and Equality at the ACLU.  

Wang also spoke with Craig Bulkley, president of the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs,  about why he believes the law should stay the way it is written. Bulkley, who is also a law enforcement officer in Spokane, says there is no evidence that police are hiding behind the word "malice."

A legislative task force is expected to make a recommendation on how the state law should be changed.
