- Video raises questions about police shots fired in carjack case
By Sarah Ravani - Saturday Jul 15, 2017
Video footage of a recent incident in Vallejo raises questions about whether the police officer was justified in firing his weapon at a suspected carjacker. A resident of the neighborhood where the July 8 shooting took place, Claire White, shared surveillance footage of the incident with the department and with elected officials. White, a criminal defense attorney, gave the footage to the Vallejo Police Department, mayor, city council members and the city attorney. According to an “independent witness,” Hurtado was armed at the time of the carjacking and when police first pursued him, said Lt. Kent Tribble of the Vallejo Police Department. Hurtado and David Plancarte, 20, also of Napa County, were booked at the Solano County Jail, where they both remain, on charges of carjacking and parole violation, police said. In this case, the victim of the carjacking was battered and Hurtado was running with a weapon that could have been used against the officer or result in a hostage situation, Tribble said. The officer is on administrative leave pending an investigation, which is standard protocol. White, who lives near the intersection where the shooting occurred, said she obtained the footage from her neighbor’s security cameras. On Tuesday, White sent the video footage to the police department and elected officials, and she outlined her concerns that evening at a City Council meeting. Since the city council meeting, White said she received an email from the city attorney, Claudia Quintana, which included a police statement that described who the suspects were, and that the officer involved is on leave while Internal Affairs investigates the matter.

- Seattle approves new income tax for wealthy residents
By PHUONG LE, Associated Press - Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle's wealthiest would become the only Washington state residents to pay an income tax under legislation approved by the City Council, a measure designed as much to raise revenue as to open a broader discussion about whether the wealthy pay their fair share.Supporters of the new tax say the city's economic growth and prosperity has created significant wealth and opportunity, but it has also exacerbated the affordable housing crisis that has put a strain on those in lower income brackets.A Seattle tax would be a step toward building political momentum for the state and its other cities and towns to enact progressive tax systems, the city council said in resolution earlier this year endorsing the idea of an income tax.Revenue could be used to lower property taxes, pay for public services such as transit and housing, replace any federal money that is lost and meet carbon reduction goals.
