See, this is why I love Washington, all the diversity! Where you can drive to the hood and in 2 miles be in redneck heaven. Brilliant. Trust me I know, I live in Spokane. ugh.

Property crime is terrible, violent crime is also on the rise, and the local DA office and judges who run the justice system play "catch & release" without ever punishing any criminals..

I'm honestly surprised that Spokane didn't hit #1 and Fife did.
