It seems that Mayor Stephanson and the Reardon’s got off scott free with the Lobsang Dargey debacle, so his announcement that he wouldn’t be running for Mayor is off the table.
As soon as Brian Sullivan announced he was going to run, Stephanson threw his hat back into the ring.
He is the perfect example of why we need term limits.
Sadly we again have no real choice of candidates, unless someone else steps up the city is going to remain the cesspool it has become over the past few decades.
Sullivan bought a house in Everett on 12/31/2015 to meet the resident requirements so he has been waiting to get in and get control of the taxpayers purse strings once again.
Now comes the announcement that the city is going to sue Purdue Pharma for the Opioid Epidemic.
Laughable because it is the police who created the larger problem when the Oxycontin pill was able to be smoked.
All the police departments have gotten so lazy that most of their “police work” is done by feeding drugs to informants and letting them get away with crimes all the way up to murder. Yes I have proof of this or I wouldn’t say it.
Remember I have witnessed with my own eyes the Snohomish County Sheriff’s giving junkies bags of pills to sell for them and I have no problem whatsoever going to court to testify to that fact for the pharmaceutical company under oath.
I am not saying that the company is absolutely without blame, they created a product that damaged people’s lives, even ended them.
I also am not going to let the police get away with all of the lives they ruined by utilizing these same drugs to accomplish their own ends and goals.
The city and the police departments do not deserve one thin dime from anyone, the people’s lives who have been destroyed or ended are the one’s who deserve compensation.
I would go one step further and say the surviving families and victims should go after the city and the police departments for the damage that they caused them.
Part of what I was doing before I became ill was working with an advocacy group and they were gathering evidence for all of the drug arrests made in Snohomish County and the various cities, and they also came to the same conclusion.
Seems they only bust Mexicans, and a few low level people who try to manufacture meth or grow weed on their own (meaning the Sheriff’s Dept didn’t get their cut) so it is not just my opinion at this point.
In some people’s world’s it may be more comfortable to believe that it’s the big bad Mexicans who are ruining Merica but that is the furthest thing from the truth, they are responsible for much of the manufacture but they do not have the connections or ability to run the amount of drugs that go through our state by any stretch of the imagination.
They have promised me the full report once they are done which I will post here. Once they got interested in Snohomish County, it seems they found the same pattern in Spokane, Thurston, Pierce and King County so they still have far more work to do so I’m not sure how long it will take.
