    When they say they are going to burn it all down, I say just let them.

    Article says it's not related to protests, but gives info about Taylor shooting case?

    Yeah, felt a bit off. Donuts and other stunts are popular all over the place all the time.

    It's dangerous, but so are air shows.

    Air shows are not illegal.

    Nothing really occurs in a vacuum. The big picture excuses the busy cops. Until the governor puts armed national guardsmen on every corner sideshows are going to happen for the benefit of the bored.

    Funny thing is that at airshows, the pilots are trained. Guys doing donuts are usually just idiots who think putting fartcans and changing the camber on cars is cool.

    I it was pretty clear. Vehicular stunts are popular everywhere around the world. And they are dangerous. And people will always show up to watch them. Why did that stir your pot?

    I live in Seattle and am familiar with this exact spot. It's a regular street sandwiched between the Space Needle and a TV station. For the life of me, I can't figure out why they do stunts at that particular spot. Maybe they want to be on TV.

    I don't think it's related to the protests. They've been doing it in this general area for about two years.

    Vehicular stunts. People enjoy them and they are dangerous.

    It has nothing to do with Seattle.

    I remember visiting the Seattle space needle with my family in 1963 the year after the world's fair. We stayed at a nearby motel that had a swimming pool and I remember my parents commenting about what a beautiful city Seattle was.

    Then in 2001 I rook a greyhound bus from Spokane to Seattle and from there took the ferry to Victoria where my Grandmother lived and she gave me her 1970 Chevelle that she bought new and only put 25,000 miles on it.

    The neighborhood around the bus station which is right near the space needle was no longer beautiful. I can't imagine how much worse it must be today. This must be the kind of "Progress" that the "Progressives" keep talking about.

    Gotta love the irony.
    They're defunding the police, and then news articles talking about how the police don't even show up to things like this until after people are hurt.
