Saturday memo: Husky homecoming … Mastros located recently … ‘No-snitch’ gang code

National Weather Service / Forecast

Weather: Rain today and tomorrow. Highs both days around 55. There could be a sunbreak or two tomorrow, but don’t hold your breath.  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: Motorists can expect heavy traffic around Seattle’s CenturyLink Field with 55,000 expected to attend the Washington Huskies’ homecoming game against Oregon State:  Kickoff is at 7:15 p.m. Metro Transit is providing game shuttles from park-and-ride lots in Eastgate, Federal Way and South Kirkland, as well as the Northgate Transit Center. Traffic map and cams.

Mastros’ whereabouts unknown until recently: Fugitive couple Michael R. and Linda Mastro evaded law-enforcement officials until just a week or two before their Wednesday arrest in France, the U.S. Marshal for Western Washington says. The arrests were made possible after Michael Mastro had sought reimbursement from his U.S. insurance provider for medical care he received in France.

‘No-snitch’ street code: For months, JaeBrione Gary dodged participation in the prosecution of the alleged gang member who allegedly shot Gary in May. Police say the reluctance to participate in the criminal-justice system stems from a gang culture that abhors “snitches” and sees street justice as the preferred way to settle beefs.

Dems to give back donations: Washington State Democrats have decided to return $70,000 in campaign donations from JZ Knight, the founder of the Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, because she had made vulgar comments about Mexicans, Jews, gays and Catholics.
