On this week’s episode, we discuss an Auburn police officer charged with vehicular homicide; the racial disparities and other barriers associated with obtaining a protection order in King County; Federal Way’s ban on the public use of fentanyl with a goal to protect public transit workers and innocent bystanders; and how farmers in the Green River Valley did not consider the unintended impacts of building the Lones Levee back in 1960.
