There was a drug raid a couple of nights ago around 3am. I was on my way to work and there were about 7 or 8 police cars and SUV’s parked along Woodland Park at the corner of N Allen, but they were all empty. I had no idea what was going on so I just went to work. Yesterday, I was trying to take my nap ( I work at 3am, napping during the day is necessary) and there was a lot of yelling and screaming going on. It seemed to be coming from the house on the other side of the condos behind out apt complex. The person yelling was threatening to pepper spray someone and accusing them of causing the raid and so on and so forth. Does anyone on know of the outcome or why the house was raided? The house in question is on Whitman between N Allen and 43rd. I’m not being nosey, but I go to work at 3am and there has been more activity than I am comfortable with outside when I’m walking to my car.March 5, 2015 at 12:12 pm #47308
Interesting, thanks for the tip Shamilton! I’ll follow up with police and see if I hear anything more, then post if I do.March 6, 2015 at 9:17 am #47316
Sounds like this part of Wallingford has become very “vibrant!”March 9, 2015 at 11:53 am #47332
Never fails to find a rant posted from “sandramarrion”. Too bad it doesn’t make any sense.
Your unemployment numbers are (very) incorrect.

These sandra marrion posts have to stop. mental illness is no excuse. there is low cost therapy from SSI or thru Bastyr. name callign violence etc are signs of a lost personality and fragile self concept. Get some help.March 9, 2015 at 11:43 pm #47336
Anonymity helps enable the SM posts… I’m guess her kinda crazy goes extra bananas when she’s not encumbered by public appearances of looking sane.
Do you think she’d stop posting if we raised the veil of anonymity? Maybe post her real name and picture here? Please… somebody remind me of what the legal/moral/ethical right-thing-to-do is here. It’s *so* tempting to shine a light on who’s behind SM.March 10, 2015 at 11:59 am #47345
Don’t feed the troll. And maybe we can get some moderating here. BTW, anyone know what happened to the post about being assaulted at the bus stop at 45th and Fremont?March 10, 2015 at 1:04 pm #47346
Unfortunately, the police did not find more info on the incident, so we didn’t run it. The sandramarrion account and post on this thread are removed, although now the thread replies don’t really make sense.March 10, 2015 at 1:17 pm #47347
Eric, thank you for removing “sandramarrion.” That was exactly the appropriate thing to do.March 10, 2015 at 11:04 pm #47350
Mucho gracias Eric. I’d rather have nonsensical threads than escalating troll wars. Keep up the good work!March 11, 2015 at 1:19 pm #47352
Dammit. I missed the rant. I kind love them.
Let me guess, the police do nothing, I have a warehouse full of cats and barbed wire and the druggies live in it and have drug parties and meth orgies?March 11, 2015 at 3:18 pm #47354
No, Frankie. Her rant this time made no sense. It was weirder than usual.March 11, 2015 at 3:31 pm #47355
respectfully, i disagree with the decision to delete the account and the post. it is everyone’s responses that create an “escalating troll war,” not the original post. why not just leave it there without a response? or, the troll-ish responders should also be deleted. where do you draw the line?March 12, 2015 at 11:43 am #47356
I disagree as well. Eric, you really blocked her from the entire site, in addition to deleting her post??? Her post was a little weird, I agree — deleting the single post was probably fine (even though it didn’t appear to violate any site rules.)
But banning the user from the site seems extreme. She recently posted in the forums ISO advice for getting a pet. Ironically, WallyMom and others attacked her character in that thread for no reason whatsoever — except, presumably, because they were annoyed that she frequently posts strange things in the crime forums, which doesn’t seem relevant. Those negative comments were neither deleted nor criticized.
Based on the count of anti-sandramarrion comments in this discussion and elsewhere, I’m guessing that runyararo and I are in the minority. However, it’s good to consider that people who like to make fun of others (including the mentally ill) are heavily over-represented in anonymous, online forums. So, if you guys all gang up on her here, your numbers will likely win out. Congratulations.
As someone pointed out in another thread (in which a reader wrote a sandra marrion parody ranting about Meth Heads) — I really hope you guys are not my neighbors.March 12, 2015 at 11:43 am #47357
I am dismayed by the irrelevant hostility of some posts on Wallyhood forums. They are intended to provoke responses, not to communicate in any meaningful way. runyararo makes a good point – ignoring these posts is the most effective way of discouraging them.
I enjoy the diversity we have in our urban village. This diversity will include some behaviors that offend. Editing out offensive posts brings up the question of who gets to choose what belongs in this newsletter and what does not. Eric is doing the hard work of keeping Wallyhood going. He gets to make the choice of what goes into it, what Wallyhood is.
