I live in Federal Way, if you want to PM the area to me I can tell you how it fairs for the rest of the city. what areas are better or worse, ect.
It sounds like this was a good encounter, even if he disarmed you "for officer safety". Which I don't think is needed, but when they are in the mode of "everyones bad until your verify" I can understand. Especially with the happening up north last week I think all the LEO's are a little jumpy.
