This is very sad that all this is happening to a business who lots of people use to shop at, with the beggars and all the garbage litter needles beer is hard to feel safe...and now this proving it isn't safe. Fred's have had Security guards on duty for months, but apparently this hasn't helped. Very sad that a few 2nd class people can ruin a thriving business that pays taxes and supports the community

A big thank you to the concerned citizen who stopped and held the attacker until police arrived. You are a true hero.

It's nice that we are spending money on schools. But we may need to address the mental health crisis in this city as well. King County deputies do a great job and I believe that we should spend more money on training for the increased homeless and mentally ill citizens of Shoreline.
