Clallam, Jefferson counties target heroin overdoses by planning to offer kits with antidote

Port Angeles police use heroin overdose antidote on fourth person

Many stories of addiction, crime & press releases from agencies involved in local busts.

Zero reporting or questions from newspeople about why the new, $11.9 million, 50 agent US Border Patrol station is unable to keep heroin out of Port Angeles.

 

Question for newspeople:

What role do 1,200-horsepower Border Patrol Interceptor boats play in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?

2011-

“… their main interaction with the boating public: Boarding boats and checking for ID, getting a “vibe,” as Jeff P. called it, for what’s up.”

More here:

Heroin at Port Angeles

News tip/story idea

 

Enhanced ID has been required to cross into the US since 2009.

If it works to keep bad guys out- how are cartels moving heroin into the Puget Sound area in 2015?

DEA:

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

 

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe-

US Department of Homeland Security-

“…a department with more than 20 different agencies, a budget of more than $45 billion and a staff of hundreds of thousands of civilian, law enforcement and military personnel.”

Ferry security drill?

Mock attack offers practice to Jefferson County first responders — drill teaches ‘a lot of lessons’

“Once we had neutralized the shooter, we had to search all areas of the boat to make sure there wasn’t anymore danger,” he said.

Newspeople, please help us to make sense of mixed messages in the War on Terror. Please be in the habit of asking questions. Too often- what we see are the posting of press releases from whatever agencies are involved in local events and incidents.

Many of us have made dozens of round-trip ferry crossings over the years. It is very common to see no security at either terminal. The Washington State Patrol uses dogs to check vehicles at some ferry terminals on some days. Walk-on passengers are not checked at any terminal- at any time.

The routes I have traveled most are Edmonds/Kingston & Port Townsend/Keystone. (Coupeville/Penn Cove is on the eastern shore of Whidbey Island- no ferry link to Port Townsend exists there.)

 

Washington State Ferries encourages people to speak up if they see something that doesn’t look right:

DSC_0048 2
Questions to ask:

If the Oklahoma City bomber rolls onto the ferry- how does a SWAT team help out an hour later?

What is the point in having gunboats escorting ferries if terrorists are free to put their boat on a trailer and drive it onto the ferry?

 

June 2006-

“Ferry incident exposes security weaknesses”

Man drives through Bainbridge toll booths without paying and locks himself in his car on the ferry Tacoma.

“State Patrol troopers and their bomb-sniffing dogs, who might also have made an arrest, didn’t happen to be at the Bainbridge dock.”

“We’d like the patrol to be everywhere, all the time, but they don’t have the staff or the money,” said ferry spokeswoman Susan Harris-Huether. “If they’d have been (at Bainbridge), none of this would have happened.”

Another source:

Ferry sails for Seattle with drunk man aboard-

Investigation of ferry dock shutdown rules captain acted correctly

Another source:

Post-911 security protocols did not prevent unauthorized motorist from driving his vehicle onto the ferry:

Bomb scare has officials pointing fingers

“Gilliland did, though, cut ahead in the vehicle loading lanes, hopping from lane five to lane one in a hurried attempt to load onto the ferry, officials said.”

“”The folks on the vessel gestured for him to stop, but he swerved like he was going to run them over,” Harris-Huether said.”

“Ferry deckhands shoved wooden wedges under the wheels of Gilliland’s SUV to prevent him from moving and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Gilliland refused, locking his doors, revving his engine and rolling up his windows.”

 

Sept. 2007-

Harpist on Port Townsend-Keystone ferry silenced after 17 years

“Washington State Ferries officials had received two complaints from passengers, saying that they had to abide by security measures while Michael did not.”

Security measures?

Washington State ferry passengers are advised via PA system to not leave backpacks or packages unattended during ferry crossings.

Meanwhile- on the car deck- cars, trucks, vans, commercial vehicles, etc. are left unattended during ferry crossings.

Washington State Ferries propaganda video-

 

Oct. 2014-

Non-terrorist demonstrates lack of security protocols at typical Washington State ferries terminal-

Vehicle blows by ticket booth, ignoring personnel assigned to proper staging of vehicles:

Zero questions or reporting from newspeople about how post-911 security protocols kept the man safe.

“Property clutter poses problems for county regulators”

“But a few properties — about eight a year countywide — receive multiple complaints, and the owners are unable or sometimes unwilling to do anything about it.”

Looks like there was no time to send a reporter out to take a few photos of these properties. No time to interview land owners or neighbors. County employees are the only folks interviewed for the story?

-It’s just for federal holidays and overseas military operations.

 

Voters approved medical marijuana in Washington State in 1998.

2015 update: “Lax medical-pot rules to go as Inslee signs overhaul bill”

My view-

Treat it like wine grapes. You are free to grow grapes in the back yard, make your own wine, share with friends and neighbors, buy at the grocery store, mini-mart, Costco, bars, taverns & restaurants, wineries, etc.

Two basic rules:

Do not furnish to minors.

Do not drive while impaired.

Did 20 years in the Marines, then football half time announcers ruined it for me- constantly reminding us that the The Troops are in distant lands fighting to protect American rights and freedoms.

If that’s all true- when do adults (18 & up) get to take delivery on all this freedom we hear so much about?

 

But- it’s against federal law.

It took a constitutional amendment to prohibit the sale of a glass of wine- why no constitutional amendment to authorize a federal war on drugs, drug czar, prohibition of marijuana, etc.

Hidden cameras reveal airport workers stealing from luggage

“A CNN analysis of passenger property loss claims filed with the TSA from 2010 to 2014 shows 30,621 claims of missing valuables, mostly packed in checked luggage. The rest occurred at security checkpoints. Total property loss claimed: $2.5 million.”

“Even the TSA has had problem employees. Since 2002, the agency has fired 513 officers for theft.”

 

Surely- the folks who have daily access to the secured areas of US airports are required to pass background checks and possess special IDs in order to keep the system safe?

A giant security gap at U.S. airports? Most workers not screened daily

“The vast majority of airport employees with direct access to the tarmac and airplanes do not go through any daily security screening, and only two of the country’s major airports have systems in place that require all employees with secure access to pass through metal detectors, a CNN investigation has found.”

“There is no federal requirement that the baggage handlers, mechanics, cleaning crews and other employees with access to the airfield and other secure areas get screened as passengers do.”

 

Please speak with our public affairs/information suppression specialist if you have further questions:

“Representatives from eight airports deferred CNN’s questions on metal-detector screenings for employees to the Transportation Security Administration, which did not provide further information on the topic.”

 

More than a decade after 911:

“TSA is implementing or considering a range of measures, including additional requirements for employee screening; conducting additional, randomized security countermeasures at employee access points; and introducing additional security patrols by TSA teams of law enforcement and screening professionals to specifically address these concerns.”

“Additionally, TSA has created a working group with representation from airport security partners to further develop plans for improving security.”

“The TSA identified workers with access to secure areas of airports as one of the greatest potential threats to aviation, according to a 2009 report by the Government Accountability Office.”

“The report said costs for full screening of airport and airline employees could range from $5.7 billion to $14.9 billion for the first year of implementation. The entire TSA budget for 2015 is $7.3 billion.”

 

Video: Airports try to stop lone wolf threat

 

Maritime workers must have special ID:

“A vital security measure that will ensure individuals who pose a threat do not gain unescorted access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime transportation system.”

“The crew of the cutter seized more than $17 million worth of illegal narcotics during their deployment in support of Joint Interagency Task Force South, according to the Coast Guard.”

“During the deployment, Active’s crew responded to search-and-rescue calls, detained a number of suspicious vessels and suspects, and seized more than 1,177 pounds of cocaine from suspected smugglers.”

It turns out they had their own ideas about indoor smoking, use of plastic bags, drug testing, menu contents, choice of lightbulbs, minimum wage, etc.

None of these topics has anything to do with religion. If the business is paid for with private money- should they be able to make their own business decisions?

Several Washington State casinos have expanded their operations– while allowing indoor smoking- in a state that has banned indoor smoking. Simply pointing out here that allowing indoor smoking can be a good business decision in some cases.

McDonalds banned indoor smoking in Washington State– more than 10 years- before they were forced to- imagine that.

 

Recommendation for a free society-

Stay away from one size fits all mandates.

Let business people make business decisions.

Let customers support or walk away from the businesses of their choosing.
