SeaTac Police intercept student bringing Stun Gun to Chinook Middle School

At about 8 a.m. Friday morning (Dec. 13), SeaTac Police acted on a tip and stopped a student arriving at Chinook Middle School who was in possession of a stun gun.

The student, a 13-year old male, was seen at a bus stop by a parent (not the parent of the student with the weapon) with what looked like a gun. The parent advised Chinook Middle School staff, who alerted the School Resource Officer. The School Resource Officer and other SeaTac Officers located and stopped a bus arriving at Chinook Middle School that was associated with the bus stop where the student was seen.

The student with the stun gun made officers aware of the weapon as all the students on the bus were being taken off one at a time. Students, backpacks, and the bus itself were searched for weapons; the stun gun was the only weapon found. All other students were safely sent on to class.

The student with the weapon was taken to the Youth Services Center and booked for RCW 9.41.280; Dangerous Weapons on School Facilities, a gross misdemeanor. It is unknown at this time why the student was bringing the weapon to school.

“I have asked the School Resource Officer to coordinate a meeting with the parents of this student to identify their needs and to educate them as appropriate to the ramifications of the actions taken by their child,” said SeaTac Police Chief Lisa Mulligan.

The Chinook Middle School Dean of Students and Head of School Security were both present and working with police throughout the incident.

    City of SeaTac Police: Did you know the City of SeaTac does not have a police department. That is right You do not have a police department. How could this be? What You do have is The King County Sherriff’s department contracting and pretending to be SeaTac police officers. The cost of this pretense is well over $9,000,000.00 per year and only going up.

    Do a public disclosure on any SeaTac police officer and You will be sent to King County Sherriff’s department. The cost for this outrages is over twice what a real police depart would cost. Everything is contracted out in SeaTac at twice the expense! In SeaTac You are Federally, State, County, and City taxed. I wonder why You allow Your “City” to contract everything out? Your Water Department, Prosecutor’s Department, Police Department, and now Your Fire Department are all contracted out. I bet even Your council members in some cases are contracted out! Contracting out is good for the City and very, very Bad for You.

    You think You have a Fire Chief and Police Chief, think again they are in name only. Do a public disclosure on them, You will be sent the County and a different town to get the information. Good Luck with the City’s over taxing You.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 11

    Ooooops, forgot the garbage contract. Looks like everything is contracted out in SeaTac! Why is there a City called SeaTac? I mean other than to collect extra taxes for the State and County? I have noticed no benefit for the people living in the City of SeaTac. Just a City called extra tax-action! Bye for now.
