Call Seattle what you will:

New Amsterdam? Northern San Francisco? Overgrown Berkeley? Grunge Capital? Urbanized Version of Woodstock?

Whatever you want to call Seattle. I love the city for what it is: liberal, progressive, high tech, cutting edge, ultra modern, hip, open minded. It is a latte sipping, birkenstock wearing, over-educated, techy oriented, NPR listening culture that lends itself to marijuarna legalization

When the gay marriage initiative passed with 53% of the vote in Washington state, it was done with the help of Seattle-King County, voting 66% in favor (and likely in the 80% range in the 7th Congressional District (encompassing mostly the City of Seattle). When President Obama carried Washington state in 2012, it was with the help of 70% of the vote in Seattle-King County (likely 85% in the 7th Congressional District). And of course, when the marijuana legalization initiative passed, it was with the help of an overwhelming vote in Seattle-King County (again...likely 90% in the 7th Congressional District).

So something tells me this kind of publication by a city police department on happens in Seattle.

As Rachel Maddow stated this evening...this is the "Next Best Thing in the World."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
