This week Seattlest saw things get worse for the Seattle Police Department, as a Federal lawsuit was filed against two of its officers; gawked as the fight for the legalization of marijuana found a new proponent in a former US Attorney; and ended the week by discussing a sure-fire way to make oenophiles really angry.

DCist was full of buzzworthy topics last week: PETA protesters in cages, the District’s Fellowship of Unassimilated Manhattan Exiles and, of course, Bono.
Bostonist got a huge surprise this week as James “Whitey” Bulger was captured after 16 years as a fugitive. The 19-time alleged killer apparently spent the bulk of that time in one place: a bland, rent-controlled apartment in Santa Monica.

Welcome home, Jimmy!
