A homeless man with multiple priors, who allegedly kicked a 67-year-old man’s dog to death during an attempted robbery in a Seattle park, was released from jail on his own recognizance the very next day.
According to court documents, Saturday afternoon John Hickey was walking his 14-year-old Jack Russell terrier, Alice, through Courthouse Park. The park is home to a notorious homeless encampment, ripe with crime, next to the King County Courthouse just a few blocks away from Seattle City Hall.
Staff at the courthouse have been quitting, blaming a “steady flow of crime and intimidation” from the residents of the encampment. Susan Mahoney, the presiding judge for King County District Court told KOMO News , “The behavior that we see on the streets toward people is more random, it’s completely unprovoked, it’s very aggressive, more frequent, people follow you, spit, we’ve had significant assaults. I’ve walked in and out of this building for 30 years and it’s definitely different than it’s ever been before.”
A survey conducted by the King County Prosecutor’s office of its employees revealed that of the 220 people that took the survey, 160 offered comments about courthouse safety and were afraid to go to the courthouse to do their jobs.
The suspect identified as Courtney J Williams, 29, allegedly demanded that Hickey give him his jacket, and according to documents said, “I’ll knock your head off if you don’t give me that jacket,” then assumed a fighting stance like a boxer.
Hickey, who had been assaulted before and had a previous leg injury, pepper-sprayed the suspect in self-defense. According to the documents, the suspect backed away and while the victim attempted to flee as fast as his injured leg could carry him, but “the suspect ran up behind him and kicked his dog so hard she flew into the air.” The dog landed head-first on the concrete walkway.
Hickey told Q13 Fox , “I heard pounding of feet and I turned around and he was running full speed at us and I didn’t have time to really do anything. I had her on the leash and he came running towards […]

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
