Motel 6 Chain Sued For Releasing Guest Information to Feds

Friday, January 5th, 2018
Motel 6 is known for being a cheap motel.
But now the national chain is being sued by Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson for handing over thousands of motel guest’s information to federal officials.
Several Motel 6 locations in Washington routinely provided U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with confidential guest information, some of which occured on a daily basis. Some guest were even arrested based on the information provided.
PINAC News obtained the lawsuit which was filed on Wednesday in Seattle. The lawsuit details how since 2015 Motel 6 gave 9,000 guest’s information to ICE without any search warrants being issued

Washington Cop Sentenced to Jail for Pepper Spraying Restrained Man

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017
Nick Hogan was such an abusive douche of a cop that not even his fellow officers liked him, calling for his termination last year after it was discovered he was having an affair with one of their wives.
So it is unlikely they are bothered by the fact that the Washington cop was sentenced to nine months in jail Tuesday for pepper spraying a man who was restrained in a gurney inside a hospital in 2011.
Hogan, who was a Tukwila cop at the time, claimed the restrained victim had “triggered his threat response” by taunting him after Hogan had delivered

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

The naked man’s roommate told Bellingham police officers the suspect was “on some kind of narcotic.”
The incident took place on October 8. The video was released in November.
At around 11:50 a.m., a caller reported a man to dispatchers in his 20’s with cuts to his body, bleeding after attacking a car.
Police claim that prior to arriving, the man tore off windshield wipers from the caller’s car and

Washington Cops Shoot and Kill Mentally Ill Pregnant Native American Mother during “Wellness Check”

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Washington cops responding to a “wellness check” at the home of a pregnant Native American woman in Washington on Muckleshoot tribal lands shot and killed the mother of three, claiming she had a handgun when they arrived on Friday.
“It’s really upsetting because it was a wellness check,” said Danielle Bargala, Renee Davis’ foster sister.
“Obviously, she didn’t come out of it well.”
But her sister says Davis was an avid hunter who owned hunting rifles, but not a handgun, according to the New York Daily News.
One of 23-year-old Renee Davis’ relatives called the sheriff’s department after receiving a text from her saying she wasn’t doing well who might be suicidal

Florida primaries eyed: Representation of few, or the many?

Sunday, September 25th, 2016
It took just 14,496 votes to win his closed Democratic primary for one of Florida’s 27 congressional seats. Now Darren Soto is virtually assured of going to Capitol Hill, unlikely to face a strong Republican challenge this November in his safely Democratic district.
The state senator snared the votes of just 2 percent of the Orlando area district’s 750,000 residents, beating three other candidates in last month’s closed-party, winner-takes-all primary. Only registered Democrats could cast ballots in Soto’s race and the small percentage of them likely decided the contest before the general election.
It’s a scenario repeated regularly in Florida’s state

Dr. Marc J. Yacht: Continuing hatreds embody true cost of war

Monday, October 12th, 2015
Wars never end.
The bullets may stop but the hatreds continue. Any family that’s lost a son, daughter, wife or husband will never end their anguish or forget those responsible for their loss.
Both sides remember.
That’s why the march to war must be carefully considered with all alternatives on the table. Such was not the case in Iraq, Vietnam, and Korea.
Generations of hatred are triggered by war and last longer than faded photographs. If we all examined conflict through the loss of one soldier or civilian and senses the effect on loved ones, perhaps there would be an end to war.

Martin Dyckman: Legislators should consider the Iowa example

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015
In the far from perfect world of politics, there’s a place that in one respect is as near to perfection as anyone could expect.
The state legislature redistricts itself, yet both parties accept the outcomes as fair, the resulting elections are unusually competitive and the courts don’t have to get involved. Gerrymandering is for the history books, not the current events pages
That’s obviously the extreme opposite of what happens in Tallahassee, Florida’s capital of confusion, chaos and conspiracy.
The model state is Iowa, home of the world’s most overrated political caucuses and the most respected redistricting system.
Like every other state, Iowa
