  1. Now honestly. One person with a knife or maybe a gun and the Lynnwood Police had how many police buses, armored police and streets shut down. I think every police officer in Lynnwood was there. Hopefully not much else was happening around town. But honestly this is really a bit much and how many tax dollars spent for all of that. Seattle probably laughs at us considering they have this happen daily there and they truly have alot of crime and should have many police but have maybe a couple of police cars at the scene for crimes like this. So when they say that they need more officers in Lynnwood I think its safe to say they have more than enough.
