    knives in the Seattle news again

    kirotv news is reporting on the acquittal of man who had to use a knife to defend himself against a guy of football player size who was slamming him into a car repeatedly. The man is named Jarred Ha. While parking in the u-district of Seattle he had an argument with some women who started to hit him and it appears he may have hit back.

    A football-size player enters the scene and starts to slam and pound Jarred into a car and Jarred has a knife and uses it to defend himself by stabbing the guy.

    The city prosecutes Jarred but the jury finds him not guilty and probably completely believes his claim of self-defense, in light of the admission by the football-size guy that he had slammed Jarred into a car at least once.

    Now, some alternatives are that Jarred have had nothing or have had a handgun. If Jarred had used a handgun and killed the attacker, the attacker would not be alive to testify to the fact that he, the attacker, had been at least once slamming Jarred into a car.

    I am not sure why the city of Seattle and/or King County prosecutors would have brought such a foolish, foolish case in which the testimony of the "victim" justifies the defendant's claim of self-defense.

    It nearly appears that Seattle or king county prosecutors have so little to do with their time that they would prosecute a man for acting in self-defense, while dozens of people have been assaulted and/or robbed in capitol hill and/or downtown and left hospitalized and/or disabled or persons such as a transgender person had a guy beat her on the sidewalk and stomp her head and walk off . . .

    With people getting prosecuted for having and using a knife in self-defense . . . yeah, why not have evil-doers beat and stomp a dozen transgendered persons, some out-of-state tourists or beat and hospitalize Joseph Crudo a security guard observing a theft.

    Meanwhile, neither the PI nor Komo nor King nor Kiro so far has decided to cover the lawsuit on the question of 2nd amendment protection of knives designed as weapons.

    So, apparently, who cares about people at Westlake or capitol hill who are beaten and who chose to not be carrying a handgun . . . Why should we care about them?

    Meanwhile, although the alleged and acquitted Jarred probably was breaking Seattle's knife law, no report on whether or not Seattle charged him; it looks like they did not. And, since the news media loves a story, that is one I would enjoy reading about.

    Did you ever think that the prosetutor hates defense weapons so much that he would prosetute his own mother just to get a conviction?

    have you folks been following the news of Jarred Ha? His knife saved his life or his well-being; he acted in self-defense and yet, his carry of the knife broke a number of laws. Knife carrying needs to be defended and publicized.
