    The Beginning To Her End

    The Beginning To Her End

    In today’s case, Emily will talk about how childhood bullying can be more dangerous than hurt feelings and tears. The impact of bullying stretches from depression and anxiety to alcohol and drug abuse, and in some cases, the trauma is too much to come back from. This is one of those stories; how a teenage decision to get a little bit of revenge impacts an entire community. This is the story of Reena Virk and how a group of peers lured her out and attacked her.

    Fallen Leaves

    Fallen Leaves

    In Seattle, thousands of houseless persons have died from the elements or violence through the years. Today, Alisha will be telling the stories of two of those folx; Daniel Alberto and Davina Garrison. One case closed while the other, 15 years later, remains unsolved. Preyed upon for their perceived weakness and disregarded as a nuisance, Anitra Freeman joins the show to discuss the perilous reality faced by today’s houseless population and the work she does with ShareWheel.org ( http://www.sharewheel.org ) to provide shelter and resources for our neighbors who need it most.

    Wicked Part Of Me

    Wicked Part Of Me

    Since 1849 there have been 110 executions in Washington State. In recent years, capital punishment was abolished in the state, however, not in time to save the lives of the three men we’ll discuss today. In today’s case, Emily tells you the events that resulted in the three most recent executions in Washington State. Three men who were deemed too monstrous to keep their lives; one child rapist, one violent repeat offender and one torturer.
