Rantz: Seattle judge goes easy on murder suspect, prompting rare second opinion that mostly failed

King County Judge Maureen McKee dramatically reduced bail for a man charged in a murder that occurred during one of Seattle’s most deadly weekends in recent memory. King County prosecutors asked for $2 million bail after charging Isaiah “Junior” Tulasaga, 25, with second-degree murder. They argued he is a significant risk to the public. But Judge McKee apparently disagreed. She lowered the bail to $150,000. She didn’t even offer any other conditions on his release, like an ankle bracelet or demand he surrender his firearm.

Seattle Summer Vacation Travel Day - Traveling to Seattle, Washington!

In this video, I will be bringing you along on our travel day where we flew from Orlando, FL to Seattle, Washington! This was the first day of our Seattle summer vacation and we were very eager to get the trip started! I was very excited because my whole family was able to join in on this trip. My mom, dad, and sister Mandy were flying from Pittsburgh, PA and Madison and I were flying from Orlando. We had an evening flight, so we were able to spend the day finishing up packing and prepping for the upcoming 6-hour flight to Seattle. We had no idea the flight was going to be that long but made sure to have enough things to do to keep us busy. This was our first time flying with Alaska Airlines and we were please with our trip! We had a slight delay in our departure time, but that gave us time to get to the airport with enough time to get Chick-Fil-A for dinner. Madison was very happy about that! I spent most of the flight editing videos and Madison played Candy Crush.
