There’s a lot of shots being fired about occupying space in Seattle; city councilmember Lisa Herbold joins Bill Radke to discuss. First up, Amazon has halted a construction project worth thousands of jobs pending the city’s decision on a head tax to fund programs for the homeless population.
Residential landlords are just as testy with the city – they’re suing about a Seattle law that prohibits them from screening renters based on criminal background. For that segment, Herbold is joined by William Shadbolt, president of the Rental Housing Association of Washington and one of the plaintiffs in the suit.
The Golden State Killer spread terror up and down the state of California for a decade, leaving a trail of at least 10 murders and over 50 rapes. That trail went cold in the 80s, and was re-animated recently by a fake profile on a genealogy website created by the FBI. Is that legal? And more importantly: is it right? Bioethics professor Malia Fullerton and forensic science attorney Steve Mercer weigh in.
And should Radke take his daughter to the Taylor Swift concert? Essayist Chuck Klosterman has Thoughts On The Matter.
