Good job to the security company, BPD and State Troopers for catching the criminals. I hope the courts don’t go easy on these 3 as they seem to be “habitual law breakers”.
Why are we angry repeat offenders keep getting put back on streets? THIS is why:
“A man slit his brother’s throat during a drunken fight and threatened to release a pit bull when deputies arrived at their home near Birch Bay Sunday, Oct. 11, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office. Nathaniel Ernest Keith Deal, 27, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault after deputies found his younger brother with a 4-inch cut to his throat Sunday, said Whatcom County Undersheriff Jeff Parks. The victim was taken to St. Joseph hospital and has since been released.”
If they didn’t let these people out of jail the first time, they wouldn’t have been able to commit this crime. 250 cash for 1 of them to get out now? Then she won’t appear again, get another warrant,and continue sketching all over town to steal hard working peoples stuff. Ridiculous.
Nate Deal…been hearing this Blaine guy’s name for YEARS…and no, not for being an outstanding citizen. How many years of crime does Nate need to engage in before he will be given a substantial jail term? Flipping heck…
