USA: Mass Shooting A Hookah Lounge In Seattle, WA With 2 Men And 1 Woman Killed. This Is The 3rd Mass Shooting In Seattle This Summer Alone. One At A Street Racing Event, Other At Community Event.


How much do you want to bet the gunman has a long criminal history and outstanding warrants and have been released back out to the streets several times. No mention of the gunman's criminal history in the no bail, no jail Seattle Commie justice for the criminals system. (emphasis mine)

👇 back to my regular spiel. 👇
Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and have you locked up for years in prison.

KOMO News published August 22, 2023: 2 men, woman killed in Seattle mass shooting identified. Three people killed in a mass shooting at a south Seattle business have been identified. The King County Medical Examiner's Office identified the three people as Jonathan Bishu, 22, Trevis Bellard, 32, and 30-year-old Nadia Kassa. All three died from multiple gunshot wounds and their deaths are being investigated as homicides.
Reporter asked, "Do you think more cops in the neighborhood would have made a difference?" She the Commie Democrat said, "We need to focus ON RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR. We can't have an officer in every situation to prevent gun violence. What we can do is work to reduce the guns that we have on the street." WOW. 😳
KING 5 Seattle published August 21, 2023: 3 people killed in shooting at Seattle hookah lounge identified. The three victims killed in a mass shooting early Sunday morning in Seattle's Mount Baker neighborhood were identified Monday as 22-year-old Jonathan Bishu, 32-year-old Trevis Bellard and 30-year-old Nadia Kassa. Family members described Nadia Kassa as caring and generous, someone who devoted her life to helping others. Her funeral will be held on Tuesday. Six other people were injured. One is in critical condition while the other five are satisfactory, according to Harborview. The victims are all between 21 and 38 years old.
KING5 reports, "It's the disturbing imagery like this that has Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz begging for the community's help in ending such violence." Seattle Police Chief said, "PLEASE do everything you can to secure those guns." Really? Begging CRIMINALS TO SECURE THEIR GUNS?! The police chief is saying pretty please stop the violence. Why should they when the Commie Democrat Seattle district attorney and Commie Democrat city officials ALLOW THE CRIMINALS TO GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING THEY WANT with no bail no jail justice for ciminals policies. These criminals are delinquents who never had any form of punishment for bad behavior their entire lives in that community or similar Commie Democrat-run community WHOSE POLICIES ARE THE CAUSE OF SUCH VIOLENCE they now claim to want to end.

SUSPECTS haven't even been arrested. The shooters are still on the loose. Let's see how long it takes for Seattle to capture these killers. How much do you want to bet that the shooter(s) have a long criminal history with several warrants out for their arrests already in place. The Commie Democrat don't believe prison will solve the crimes in our communities. Apparently, these psychopaths that somehow get voted into office believe not punishing the criminals will get them to stop committing crimes that harm the community.

Really? What happens when a parent does not ever punish aka discipline their child for bad behavior? The child will identify their bad behavior as the stardard for their home environment and continue their bad behavior outside of the home. Then the Commie Democrats oblige the deliquent's bad behavior by setting up a no bail, no jail justice for criminal system that benefits them because they feel sorry for them. Meanwhile, the entire community where they live is terrorize by these criminals who don't understand what they're doing is wrong. So begging them to stop their violence is illogical and plain stupid.

SEATTLE — Three people killed in a mass shooting at a south Seattle business have been identified.

The King County Medical Examiner's Office identified the three people as Jonathan Bishu, 22, Trevis Bellard, 32, and 30-year-old Nadia Kassa. All three died from multiple gunshot wounds and their deaths are being investigated as homicides.

The shooting happened around 4:25 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 20, at the Rainier Hookah Lounge on the 2200 block of Rainier Avenue South. Police responded after receiving multiple 911 calls about the shooting.

Three people were killed and six others were injured. Multiple reports of gunshots-wound victims arriving at Harborview Medical Center came in while officers were still at the shooting scene. Officers went to Harborview to interview the victims and witnesses, according to police.

Two 22-year-old men, a 21-year old man, a 23-year-old man, a 38-year-old man, and a 25-year-old man showed up to Harborview, according to Seattle fire chief Harold Scoggins. Among the six people who arrived at Harborview, five were in satisfactory condition and one, a 23-year-old man, was in critical condition at last check, according to the hospital.

Police recovered surveillance video from nearby businesses, showing dozens of people running for their lives as gunfire erupted. The hookah lounge remained closed on Monday.

"We’ve recovered five guns, we are still trying to figure out who was in possession of those guns, who was shooting, it’s still yet to be determined," SPD Chief Adrian Diaz said in a news conference Sunday.

Police have not said how many shooters were involved and are working to find out what led up to the shooting. No suspect information has been released yet.

There are indications the shooting may have been gang-related, but investigators have not confirmed that information.

So far this summer, this is the third mass shooting Seattle police have responded to with multiple gunshot victims. Four people were shot at an illegal street racing event in Capitol Hill on July 23rd. Then on July 28th, five people were shot at a community event outside Safeway in Rainier Beach.

The SPD's homicide unit will be leading the investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the SPD's violent crimes tip line at 206-233-5000.
FOX 13 Seattle published August 22, 2023: Family mourns 22-year-old killed in south Seattle mass shooting. Early Sunday morning, nine people were shot and three were killed in a shooting at a Rainier Valley hookah lounge.
KING 5 Seattle published August 22, 2023: King County Council member reacts to south Seattle shooting that killed sister of staff member. Councilmember Girmay Zahilay said the death of Nadia Kassa is "absolutely devastating."
This Commie Democrat Councilmember in the video above is like omg all these shootings are happening in my district. Oh no why. I'll tell you why. Because the Commie Democrat district attorney's policies and Councilmembers justice for criminals policies are not arresting criminals and not putting criminals in prison. There is such a disconnect with these people. Again, if they do happen to arrest these shooters, I bet you the shooter has a long criminal history of being arrested and let out immediately, arrested and let out immediately, with multiple arrest warrants currently in place.

The Commie Democrats say hiring more police is not going to solve their gun violence problem. YES IT WILL. Because then you will have more staff dedicated to INVESTIGATE THIS CRIME and other crimes in the area and more police to arrest the criminals. Also, having more police patroling the neighbhorhood helps a great deal and more police cars will be able to respond to 911 calls. Police are the neighborhoods highly trained armed security personnel. You don't want unarmed mall cops patrolling your neighborhood. So how can you say more TRAINED ARMED GUARDS are not going to solve the gun violence in the neighborhood. I don't understand how believing having little to no police in the neighborhood is going to keep people safe? Of course if you lower the hiring education requirements and training standards for becoming a police officer like the Commie Democrats have been doing across America, and then they wonder why they have problems with the policing in their area, you will have police with lower standards that will cause problems for the city police department.

Violent and non-violent Criminals like to roam where there IS NO SECURITY IN PLACE AND NO ARMED PEOPLE. Violent and non-violent criminals love GUN FREE ZONES and they love seeing no police cars and no police personnel in the area. (emphasis mine)

When gunfire tore through a birthday party at a Rainier Avenue South hookah lounge last weekend, it became the latest story of bloodshed and violence for a part of Seattle already traumatized by a long history of gangs and guns.

Three people were killed, six more were injured and dozens of others ran for their cars in the parking lot behind Rainier Hookah Lounge, a nondescript beige storefront with blacked-out windows and no sign or posted hours in a multibusiness building in the Mount Baker neighborhood.

Anger, frustration and overwhelming sadness permeated a joint meeting of the Seattle Police Department’s South Precinct and African American advisory councils in Rainier Beach on Wednesday night. The first in-person meeting since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic was planned weeks ago and meant to introduce residents to new precinct commander, Capt. Rob Brown.

In his new assignment for a month, Brown’s first day was July 28, when two shooters opened fire in the Safeway parking lot in Rainier Beach, wounding five people, including two members of the Safe Passage team that has hosted a weekly “community healing space” in the lot for people affected by gun violence.

No arrests have been made in either of the recent shootings.

“All I can say is that it is a highly complex investigation: lots of victims, lots of moving parts,” Brown said of the deadly gunfire at Rainier Hookah Lounge early Sunday.

Killed in the shooting were Jonathan Bishu, 22; Trevis Bellard, 32; and Nadia Kassa, 30.

Reached by phone earlier this week, Bishu’s father said his son graduated from Franklin High School in 2019 and celebrated his 22nd birthday earlier this month.

“You build a family house and your basement has a sinkhole. That’s how it feels. Just terrible,” Genanew Bishu Wolde said of his son’s shooting death.

Victoria Beach, chair of the SPD’s African American Community Advisory Council, said before Wednesday’s meeting that the hookah lounge shooting was gang related and occurred during a birthday party.

She said partygoers began to clear out when they saw members of different gangs talking to each other — “and when they started clearing the party, that’s when they pulled out the guns.”

“So many mothers have reached out to me, but I don’t know what to say to them,” Beach said of women who’ve recently lost children to gun violence. “I’m at a loss for words, and my heart is beyond broken.”

She blames the Seattle City Council’s decision three years ago to cut the Police Department’s budget in half — a move that was quickly walked back after the sudden retirement of then-Chief Carmen Best — for the subsequent exodus of hundreds of officers the department is struggling to replace.

“I blame the City Council that it’s mayhem in the city of Seattle,” Beach said.

Fedillah Kassa, one of Nadia Kassa’s six sisters, expressed anger and frustration over the lack of arrests.

“It’s been days now since the shooting took place … and these people are still on the streets,” Kassa said. “I feel like we have a lot of resources but they’re not in the neighborhoods that need them.”

She said kids are joining gangs because “there’s absolutely nothing to do” and that police need to build relationships with neighborhood kids before the youth start stealing cars and carrying guns.

“I can hear your hurt … and I agree with many of the things you said,” Brown told her.
He acknowledged most of the South Precinct’s gun violence is related to gangs and said officers recently arrested four juveniles in a stolen car, including an 11-year-old who claimed membership in a gang well-known for being one of the most violent in the city.

Deputy Seattle City Attorney Scott Lindsay told the gathering that the city’s Department of Construction and Inspections has issued an emergency order for Rainier Hookah Lounge to cease operations because the business doesn’t have the required land-use permit. It will not open Friday, he said.

Nearly a decade ago, then-Mayor Ed Murray began a push to shut down the city’s hookah lounges after community activist Donnie Chin was fatally shot in 2015 near a hookah lounge in the Chinatown International District. Faced with backlash, particularly from the city’s East African communities, Murray paused enforcement and ordered a racial-equity analysis.

But the city couldn’t come up with a regulatory license, and the lounges have continued to operate in a regulatory gray zone as private clubs — typically charging patrons nominal fees to become members as a way to circumvent the state’s indoor smoking ban.

The lounges don’t serve liquor but have become after-hours meetup locations, some of them opening in the early hours of the morning after the bars close, Erin Goodman, chair of the South Precinct Advisory Council, said in a phone interview before the meeting.

Goodman, also the executive director of the SODO Business Improvement Area, said surveillance cameras there have captured footage of street racing and reckless driving after a neighborhood hookah lounge closes at 5 a.m.

“Who is checking them to make sure bouncers are making sure to keep guns out?” she asked. “You can’t take their liquor license away. It’s completely a no man’s land and free-for-all.”

The powers assigned to police officers and security guards can vary greatly. Police officers protect the public and enforce the law backed by extensive training and certifications. While security guards do not need as much training, they are highly trusted for protection. They are not public servants but provide optimal security services with specific job details. Police officers are committed to protecting the public at large, while a security guard is entrusted to protect the interest of their client and property.

Both security guards and police officers are entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining public safety, but the extent of their authority varies. Police enforce the law, and their jurisdiction extends beyond private property and into the broader community. They also deal with crime prevention, assist crime victims, conduct investigations, maintain public order, and take part in emergency response. Police also have a duty to the community they serve. Oftentimes, they also host public information sessions with young people or seniors.

The first thing to remember is that security is not law enforcement. A security officer’s or guard's jurisdiction extends to specific locations or private businesses like hospitals, malls, airports, office/commercial buildings, schools/universities, industrial sites, and more. They are responsible for keeping the property and its people safe from a myriad of issues. Among many other responsibilities, security professionals enforce policies, respond to emergencies, mitigate criminal activities, and enforce security protocols. They also have a crucial role in educating the public and being customer service champions for their sites.
