The Mayor of Seattle is claiming the budget cuts for police "defunding" are too much !!

Same Mayor who allowed violent protesting and massive looting only a few weeks ago !!

Typical Democratik BS because they are claiming to be against something they actually want !!

Big BS coming from Democrat scripted acting and phony attitudes.

Don't get fooled because YOU will pay the price of Democrat dominance agendas !!

All part of the Democrat plan to overload the entire System and defeat Trump in November


Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best slammed the Seattle City Council for its push to cut the police budget by 50% at a Monday morning news conference, and instead proposed a more modest $76 million cut amid a "reimagining" of police functions in Seattle.

"We both recognize that we have an historical opportunity and obligation to reimagine how policing can be done in Seattle," Durkan said. "We believe deeply in broad community investments which can build greater community help and less need to call 911 for help."

But she added, "Blunt cuts won't work, and a 50% cut is irresponsible."

Durkan, Best slam 50% defunding of Seattle police, offer $76M compromise

😆Watch these phony BS artists trying to fool you with their fakery !!😆

She's just trying to save her own hide:

A King County judge has ruled that a recall petition filed against Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan over her handling of recent police brutality claims can proceed.

The decision, handed down on Friday, gives petitioners the green light to start gathering the signatures needed to place the measure on the ballot.

...Following the judge's ruling, petitioners now have 180 days to gather more than 56,000 signatures from registered voters in Seattle, which is 25 percent of the total votes she received during the 2017 election.

The recall effort is known as the “Fire the Mayor” campaign.


I'm not that 'up' on US politics, but she has been a bit of a media fixture recently, I'm not at all surprised by this.

It's not only about the money when you have stupid authorities. They could restore the budget like it was before, but next day they'll come up with something even more stupid.

Even if she thinks that she can’t do anything about it.

The councillors are forcing through these changes, and the majority of them are fully onboard with the subversive BLM/Antifa program.

Everyone gets the government they deserve in an elective system.

She is so gone after that fiasco, I am surprised she is not starting to turn transparent (Physically).

She was just pushing a $76million cut in the police budget a few days ago and moving 911 calls out of police juristicion and into ccivilian hands.


I have friends who are fleeing the city because they are terrified because of the rampant crime and fear with the coming cuts their lives will be in daily danger.

I visited Seattle last year:
There was feces and urine on downtown streets in tourist areas as well as other areas.
There was trash piled high under the underpasses, the entire time I was there, garbage in huge piles as you drove downtown in underpasses.
The airport had broken items that weren't fixed the entire time I was there. It had lots of graffiti. The airport was filthy, actually dirtier than many 3rd world airports I have been to.
Seattle is a dangerous, filthy city, avoid at all costs because it is about to become an even worse hell hole than it was last year.

These Dems flip flop more then a fish out of water.

She’s just trying to preserve her own power after hearing about the petition to remove her from office. These people have no moral compass they just do whatever the mob of the day demands.

Just like how she let chaz go for weeks until they showed up at her front door, then all the sudden they shut it down.

She is pandering to the citizens who are about to remove her from office.

Too late witch.

The major problem with the recall is it only gets rid of the Mayor, not the councilmen.

At best a more moderate Democrat is elected to Mayor, but it would be a powerless position with the extremists and radicals still in control of the council.

You see Durkan. you let shawant take over the goons and the council. now the counccil is totally socialist now. afte rthe Amazon tax vote. They feel totally empowered now. Where was this energy a month ago?? Where was this energy when Carmen needed you?

It was all good when they didnt come to your doorstep But now we need some funding for the police mayor?

You need to go Jenny Durkan,

I will support any petition that has recall jenny durkan on it.

What you did was unforgivable

You must go!!

I, for one, am perfectly fine with Seattle and SF both burning to the ground.

If the ppl don't want the police there, then Take ALL the Police out those cities.

May new and better ideas be born from the ashes.
