from Fellowship Of The Minds:
Last November I told you about a man named Ryan Georg who was brutally beaten by a homeless criminal. The perp lived in a nearby homeless encampment and was part of a group that attacked Georg with a baseball bat, beating him within an inch of his life. Georg is now in a wheelchair and get seizures.
From my post: “A musician was leaving last week when he nearly lost his life to a random baseball bat attack by a homeless person, says that the city has allowed the neighborhood to turn into a living nightmare for businesses.”

Now MyNorthwest.com reports that one of the men allegedly behind that attack is out of jail on his own recognizance with no bail.
From their report:
“One of them had a baseball bat and just attacked Ryan and his brother,” Cash told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson. “He took a couple of hits to the head with a baseball bat, and all of them kicked him and beat him when he was on the ground.”
The attackers ran off when a car pulled up to aid the victims.
Georg was rushed to the emergency room, but his loved ones feared that the attack had killed him.
Georg and Cash thought they had some closure when one of the alleged attackers, Lonnie Sanderson, was recently arrested on second-degree assault for the attack.
However, King County Superior Court Judge Veronica Alicea-Galvanreleased Sanderson on Wednesday after 10 days behind bars with no bail — just a promise to take part in Enhanced Community Center for Alternative Programs, a King County addiction treatment program.
“Our voice wasn’t heard in the decision,” Georg said. “I don’t know why, given the information, they would let that guy out. It just doesn’t make sense to me.”

Sorry to say this but if this “just doesn’t make sense” to you, then you haven’t been paying attention to what is going on in Seattle and King County. All one has to do is read the daily news (the more conservative sites) or search this blog for “homeless,” “Seattle” or “King County.”
The elected demorat officials in Seattle/King County care more about their “compassion” for the homeless, criminal justice reform and collecting more of your taxpayer dollars to “solve” the homeless crisis than they do about law-abiding citizens.
