SEATTLE - A local man has died and a woman is in serious condition after they were stabbed repeatedly by a stranger who confronted them Friday night as they were walking in Pioneer Square after the Seattle Sounders game, police said. Friends identified the man who died as Troy Wolff, 46, who was chairman of the English Department at Shoreline Community College and had taught there for 17 years. He was walking with his girlfriend near 3rd Avenue South and South Jackson Street at about 10:30 p.m. Friday when she was suddenly confronted by a man who pulled out a small knife and

My dad used to have business in Pioneer Square when I was a teen=ager in the early sixties. He would take me with him and I would wander all over Pioneer Square without anyone ever bothering me. A few Native Americans and a few bums, but they never approached or hassled anyone. They weren´t even ´scary´ or gave you a feeling of danger. I know it´s been 50 some years, but this is what drugs have done to society.

As a superannuated English major, I can´t help noting that this is a very honorable way for one of us to die. I certainly hope the woman he was defending pulls through.

The libtard judiciary shutting down the ability to institutionalize these demented people is a gift that just keeps on giving, ever since the 70s. Also known as the law of unintended consequences - though they were unforeseeable only by libtards. To everyone else, it was pretty obvious.

Ya, it´s the drugs.

In the last few years drugs have become more angry and more hostile and more likely to strike out and harm innocent people.

Guns are getting angrier and more hostile too.

....and knives....we must outlaw knives, even little ones.

Did I miss a description of the killer? Interesting reading the comments after the original article. Left wingers are like little children. It is always someone else´s fault. They have been in charge of the decaying cities and states for decades and yet never manage to I prove anything...just further decay ensues. Go see daddy Obama...maybe he will fix the boo boo and make it all better.

Excuse the second post but I meant to add, be sure to check the picture of the one arrested.
Also, poster #4, the citizens of Seattle and the state of Washington do have the right to carry guns. Sad to say, I´m sure the good professor saw no need to own a gun.

#8, are permit holders allowed to bring their weapons into the sporting event, or is that stadium (as in many states) a "gun-free zone?" Too often, these "gun-free zones" guarantee that potential victims will be disarmed while en route back and forth from the event and their car, and on the trip back home.

My recollection is that the stadium prohibits guns as a matter of policy and does a bag check and quick frisk on the way in. But CC at a stadium is not prohibited by law. If you´re familiar with the search policy, it´s easy enough to carry a gun anyway, but wouldn´t do it by using a hip holster or in a bag. I seem to recall that it is prohibited at "music festivals" or some such thing.

Poster #8, I think you´re right. The few Mariners games I´ve been to, I´ve left my gun at home. Never been to a football or soccer game but am sure they are gun free zones also. It would be terrible to find out the good professor did have a gun, but didn´t carry it with him Friday night because of the gun free zone law at the soccer game.

It may have been an honorable way to go #1, but it was also avoidable and therefore it was a stupid way to go. The perp should have been DOA and the victims treated and released if they needed treatment at all. However, I´d be willing to bet that the victim was a good progressive and as such was happy to have the police and the legislature protect him.

Seattle is a magnet for the homeless transients. We have tent cities everywhere, parks are infiltrated with sleeping misfits, it´s worse than ever and we´ve been here over 30 years. This enrages me. All we´ve done here is obsess about guns. I suggest everyone get a concealed weapons permit...NOW.

Having visited Seattle a couple of times in the last decade I know that Pioneer park is similar to the trolley lines in SFO for druggies and deadbeats. Would definitely be carrying concealed if I was to walk through there at night.

Under Washington state law you can carry concealed in sporting events if you have a CHL - RCW 9.41.300 (Weapons Prohibited in Certain Places),
(2) Cities, towns, counties, and other municipalities may enact laws and ordinances:
(b) Restricting the possession of firearms in any stadium or convention center, operated by a city, town, county, or other municipality, except that such restrictions shall not apply to:
(i) Any pistol in the possession of a person licensed under RCW 9.41.070

Rather than put up with hassle of getting refused permission in violation of state law and my 2A rights, I would not carry to a ballgame and would instead just take a taxi or limo to/from the game.

Seattle used to be a very nice city. The Mayor is a true fruitcake. The police are expected to be cow towing to all the different minority communities. Mentally ill people let out to run the streets. So many of them are a true danger to the community and not just "harmless homeless" folks. Even the Market area is not nearly as nice as it used to be. I have seen transients being very abusive and aggressive to business owners. Everybody is expected to just put up with it. Seattle news channels try to act as if all this violence is rare. It is not and it´s getting worse.

A simple route along the west side of Olympia became a ride from hell Tuesday afternoon. Surveillance video from the Intercity Transit bus shows a horrific attack on a driver after a confrontation and yelling turned into a beatdown. The video shows a man swearing and harassing passengers, which drew the attention of the driver. "I told you once. I´m not gonna tell you again," the driver said to the man, warning him to tone down his language or else he would be thrown off the bus. Shortly afterward, the driver pulled the bus over and went to the back of the bus to

Coming soon maybe to a grocery store near you — chicken from China. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) ruled recently that poultry processed in China can be sold in the United States. But first the birds must be born and raised in the U.S., Canada or Chile. Then they’re exported to China before being shipped back to the Americas. Food-safety experts worry about the quality of chicken processed in a country notorious for avian influenza and food-borne illnesses. And they predict China will eventually seek to broaden the export rules to allow chickens born and raised there.

Can we even talk anymore? Maybe not, discovered Cliff Mass. Mass is an atmospheric sciences professor at the University of Washington. He has been troubled for years by the way the subject of global warming can turn typically even-headed scientists into politicized, tribal warriors. As he sees it, there are the vast majority of scientists, including himself, who think human-caused global warming is a reality. But some in this group, frustrated at political inaction, have begun hyping the effects of climate change beyond what the science supports.

More than three hours later, rescuers pulled Nathan out from under 11 feet of sand on Friday. He showed no signs of life: He was cold to the touch, had no pulse and wasn´t breathing. His limp body was put into the back of a pickup truck, which started toward a waiting ambulance. The plan was to take him to the hospital rather than the coroner´s office,

Spent fireworks litter the street, testament to America’s celebration of the land of the free. Trayvon Martin should have been celebrating the Fourth of July as well, hanging out with his parents and his friends, doing whatever young people do when the world around them is not treating them like would-be criminals. Instead, attorneys for the state and for George Zimmerman duke it out in a Sanford, Fla., courthouse about whether or not Martin deserved to die. Did the 17-year-old cause his own death by not turning tail and running when a stranger followed him block after block?

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.
