ome progressive leaders and local Democrats have a signed an open letter demanding her removal from office. LESTER BLACK
A couple dozen (at the moment) local leaders have signed an open letter demanding the resignation or removal of Mayor Jenny Durkan for her "failure to stop the Seattle Police Department from engaging in violence against its residents; for her failure to protect the safety of our communities, specifically our Black community, the homeless, and peaceful protesters; and for violating the accepted standards of our community by excusing and defending the violence used against our families, friends, and neighbors," they write.
"Mayor Durkan has repeatedly proven that she is either unwilling or unable to exercise control over the Seattle Police Department," the letter continues. "Mayor Durkan has failed to uphold the values of the Democratic Party, has willfully violated her duty to keep the people of Seattle safe, her duty to direct and control all subordinate officers of the City, and her duty to maintain peace and order in the City. For all of these reasons Seattle Mayor Durkan must resign or be removed."
As cities across the country are discussing defunding or disbanding their police departments, truck drivers are voicing concerns of safety. Seventy-seven percent of truck drivers say they will refuse to deliver freight to cities with defunded police departments. Truck driving is historically ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. In 2018, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reported truck driving as the most deadly job in the country. Truck drivers have spent the last year on the front line of a global pandemic and protests. Now many are fearful of what might happen if police departs disband or are defunded. Truck drives have been voicing their concerns on the CDLLife App. After reading about their concerns, CDLLife posted a poll on the app. We asked drivers on the app, “Would you pick up/deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments? Why or why not?” To date, 77% of drivers say they will refuse loads to cities with disbanded or defunded police departments.

Now they want to come up with "a new public safety model", which will include not using pepper spray against angry/violent protestors, no guns being brandished by whomever the new "public safety model officers" will be, and no black person EVER being killed. Even if that person is a hard core criminal...

camden is all about the narrative, it all looks good on the surface but in reality its just a facade created to appease critics, despite all the praise the population shrank, gentrification expanded, affordable housing shrank, minorities lost influence over the community, crime rates went back to normal after spiking, violent crimes go unreported, corruption has ran rampant in the new ccpd, police brutality and abuse of power is still an issue, the new ccpd costs more, etc

I Just had a nice conversation with a few Japanese people whom believe, and stated that a majority of Japanese people think Democrats are being paid by the CCP to implement the goals of the CCP in the U.S.
According to those Japanese people, whom were discussing this topic with me, the same thing is happening with Japanese politicians being paid by the CCP to implement Communist Chinese agendas in countries like the U.S. and Japan.
it seems that a lot of good people are waking up to the reality of these goals/agendas. I wonder how much money did Jenny Durkan get from the CCP, and from Soros, to allow what is happening in Seattle.
he Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously passed a resolution to create a "transformative new model for cultivating safety" following the death of George Floyd in police custody last month. The vote comes days after nine of the city's 13 council members announced their intent to disband the city's police department.
The resolution kicks off a year-long process of "community engagement, research, and structural change to create a transformative new model for cultivating safety in our city."
The council's resolution makes clear that the death of George Floyd has pushed reform alone off the table: "No amount of reforms will prevent lethal violence and abuse by some members of the Police Department against members of our community, especially Black people and people of color."
"Decades of police reform efforts have not created equitable public safety in our community, and our efforts to achieve transformative public safety will not be deterred by the inertia of existing institutions, contracts, and legislation," reads the resolution; which also quotes Angela Davis in stating: "In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist."
