Shoreline is a great place with great people however there is crime that can be stopped. The THS methadone clinic of Aurora and 167th is a magnet for the worst drug crime ridden zombies that leave high on methadone and then come down as they wander our neighborhoods, parks, and schools. That place needs to go! I believe the SODA ordinance that just passed in Shoreline will help but it is up to us, the people of Shoreline to not put up with it and report suspicious people and activity immediately to 911. Don't call and waste your time with the Shoreline police number. They send you on a phone loop and tell you to just report it online. Even they said 911 is what to call to report activity immediately. I bike along the interurban trail near my home and when I see a crack head with multiple shopping carts and surrounded by trash, I immediately call 911. Don't put up with it. Let them know that crime will not be tolerate and we wont just look the other way!
