    KIRO RADIO Staff Police are looking for the person who shot a Des Moines man Tuesday night when he was walking on S. 208th St. with his girlfriend.
    He told police he was going to visit friends at the Willow Lake Apartments in SeaTac, where the shooting took place.
    The 42-year-old victim is at Harborview Medical Center with a gunshot wound in the stomach.

I just saw that article on the news a minute ago wierd!By the way a buddy of mine and myself are the only ones seen in this complex carrying.Even the manager knows I have my CPL.

    See it's random acts of violence like this that makes me carry. When I was atsome places OCing i sometimes think. This places seemssafe by me OCing here it may be a over kill. But when I read things like this. It really brings home the reason why I OC and carry at all.

    When I felt like my OC was a over kill, I just say to myself. criminals do not care who you are, where your location is, what time of theday it is, and who is around. They will harm you just for the joy of it.

    Like I said before it is only the ganbangers and wannabes that have a problem with the OC. and I don't care, I will not be in a position that I cannot defend myself against this sort of thing.

    Isn't it interesting how a tragedy invokes thought and fear when the thought and fear should have been there in the first place. Complacency is not a friend to any of us.

    Willow Lake ain't that bad. You want to see some real action, move to Creston Park over in Skyway. :shock:

    Seriously though - Burien, Seatac, White Center, Skyway are the areas I suggest people avoid when visiting or choosing an area to live.

    If you want info on crimes in a particular area, the breakdown for unincorporated King County, and the cities that contract with the Sheriff for service (Skykomish, Shoreline, Kenmore, Woodinville, Beaux Arts,Sammamish, North Bend, Newcastle, Maple Valley, Covington, Seatac, and Burien)can be found here:

    you should have seen it in the 70's then. Lots of bikers. 80 and 90's was the true gangland stuff.

    Yeah I lived in Federal Way in the 80's.My wife at the time was a bartender at a Denny's that was next to the Fred Meyer on International.She went out to the car after shift and all the windows had been shot out.I moved to Las Vegas In the early 90,s and had a nice country clup place in Palm Springs for a while which my ex now has along with my ex money.But we never saw much of that kind of crap..

    The bandidos still run strong in Whitecenter. But they arent on the normal "gang" list. The PI just is now doing a big two part story on Seattle Gangs, very interresting. I dont have the link.

    This is funny because DEROS72 lives in SeaTac and I live in Burien. I had left his apartment just about an hour before the shooting. He & I are the only ones known to OC in his complex. We thought the cops might be paying us a visit but they didn't.
