    I really want to be Burien. Unincorporated King county offers no police protection. The 4th of July is like being in a fire fight in the middle east. There is nothing but gang bangers, illegal Mexican, small houses with Brocken down cars out front and crack whores. The police do nothing to protect the law abiding citizens in the area. The need to have a stronger presents in the community and start acting like law enforcement and start handing out fines. Get with the program.
