An impromptu memorial of flowers, candle, and candy adorn the sidewalk in front of the Capitol Hill house where six people – ranging in age from 14 to 32 – were slain in the early hours of March 25. The gunman had attended an after-hours party with the victims, then left, only to return minutes later with a shotgun and handgun. When confronted by police at the scene, the gunman killed himself. The killings, while making national news, have many Seattle residents asking the same question that those in other cities have asked when random violence has struck close to home: Why?

Immigration: Bite Back Against the Backlash
- Issue: According to the American Civil Liberties Union, the U.S. Senate is preparing to consider immigration legislation that would increase racial profiling and lay the groundwork for a new national ID database. Anti-immigrant forces are mounting a fierce battle in Congress to push through these and other heavy-hander “reform” measures. Anti-immigrant sentiment is no excuse for creating laws that are completely inconsistent with American values and that would violate civil rights and civil liberties.
