Drug crimes in Seattle
Violent crime is worse
To the letter writer who was upset about drug crimes, I understand your annoyance. [“Northwest Voices: Crime in Seattle,” Opinion, Aug. 18.]
I get annoyed with drug users at times, too. But to equate a drug transaction with violent crimes, such as murder, rape, assault, domestic violence and armed robbery, is ridiculous.
Let’s get real here. What’s the bigger threat to you — the man beating up his girlfriend, someone assaulting a bus driver, or a recreational drug user looking for a good time?
Violence is always bad. I’m not going to judge nonviolent crimes. I’ll leave that for you to do.
