commented on At Least 10 People Say They’ve Been Drugged at Seattle Bars This Summer
"Only two of the 10 people The Stranger talked to filed police reports. The rest said they had doubts about whether the police would believe them in the absence of physical evidence, or whether the police would do anything about the drugging even if they had."
Congratulations Stranger Staff! Your carefull cultivation and grooming of mistrust in the Seattle Police department is paying off for people who like to drug people in bars. Their victims have bought your story and are your victims too now.

In other news... we are learning more about the new darling of the leftist media: In 1983 Mr. Khan provides his own advocacy for Sharia law in a academic paper written by him titled “Juristic Classification of Islamic Law."
“The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah,” Khan writes. “All other juridical works… must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”
He explains that Sharia is derived from the Quran and Sunnah, and that the Quran “is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
Khan then notes that Quranic law includes “constitutional law.”
A devout Muslim, Khan also cites two notorious Muslim Brotherhood radicals as scholarly sources — Muhammad Hamidullah and Said Ramadan, whom he “gratefully acknowledged.”
Khan speaks admiringly of Brohi’s interpretation of human rights, even though it included the right to kill and mutilate those who violate Islamic laws and even the right of men to “beat” wives who act “unseemly.”
Though described by the Clinton camp and media as a “Pakistani-American lawyer,” less known is Khan’s an acknowledged expert on Sharia law doctrine. His 13-page article, which was published in the Houston Journal of International Law, has been cited in dozens of Islamic law articles and has been used in college syllabi for Islamic law courses as recently as 2013.
By comparison, his expertise in American constitutional law is barely evident. In fact, there appears to be few if any legal citations in federal or state court records for Khan, who describes himself on his business website (removed Tuesday from the Internet) as “attorney at law.”
Rather "unseemly" of someone who believes the US Constitution is subordinate to Shari'ah law to lecture anyone else on the US Constitution.
