- "Hello, Neighbor!"
Police may have put a stop to the sudden spike in Capitol Hill robberies. Last night, after three more late-night gunpoint robberies on the Hill, police arrested two teenage suspects. In other violent-teen news, the 14-year-old who beat the Metro bus driver unconscious was sentenced today to a year in juvenile custody. According to West Seattle Blog, while on the stand in court today, the mother of the attacker insisted her son is “a good kid” and could “never hit anyone” and started to blame the victim for what happened until she was cut off by the judge. The good kid was reportedly "under the influence of alcohol" at the time. And in one last piece of macabre neighborhood news, West Seattle Blog reports that a cyclist called 911 at 5:45 a.m. yesterday out of concern for a man laying face-down in the alcove of the art collective in West Seattle’s Junction. The man was later pronounced dead; cause of death and identity are still unknown.
