Sexual Assault In The Military: Post Trauma And The Role Of Sexual Harassment In the third and final part of her series on sexual assaults in the US Military, KUOW reporter Patricia Murphy looks at the aftermath of assault, including how post–traumatic stress after sexual assault is often similar to the post–traumatic stress that is common after combat.

"Gang Free Zone" Proposed In King County: King County is now home to up to 10,000 gang members. On Monday, King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn proposed legislation to combat the problem. Under part of Dunn's proposal, people convicted of gang–related activities could be banned from certain zones, called "gang–emphasis areas." Is this a necessary step to prevent gang violence or is it an infringement on civil liberties?


King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn represents citizens in Southeastern King County. Dunn is running for State Attorney General.
