@ Maggie: Easy to say, however, we are connected as human beings because we live on this earth. While the police blotter for Shoreline is a good representation of documented information (bad things) about a small fraction of "going-ons" in Shoreline, it does not represent all the GOOD things that happen in the city. Shoreline is a good place with good people. There is a great deal of commerce, volunteer groups, schools and more that betters the lives of all. There are beautiful parks and parts of the city is situated nearby The Puget Sound. Unfortunately, it is a common observation that most people's attention tends to be grabbed by outlandish events...

I would agree with Tu-Ha Nguyen, I have found it extremely troubling to see and hear the reports of out of control behavior by a few younger people who feel they are entitled to be as rude, destructive and abusive as they wish to be simply because they exist. You do not represent the rest of us. Please leave, go back to where you came from. It is for certain that you are not welcome in our community. C.Dinsdale Shoreline,
