Here it comes !!

The Seattle City Council is trying hard to abolish the Police !!

They want a "Community" based system to replace some police authorities !!

More reasons to just abandon the big Democrat screw-up Cities !!




This week, the Seatlle City Council proposed a motion to replace its police department with a “civilian led department of community safety & violence prevention.”

According to the Post Millennial, the proposal states that the council plans to “remove certain functions from the Seattle Police Department to and provide funding for a community-led process to inform the structure and function of a new department of community safety & violence prevention; requesting modifications to policing practices…”

The city council wants to replace the police department with “culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections, “housing, food security, and other basic needs,” and “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis.”

The reason behind the idea is so that the city council “recognizes that the nation’s and Seattle’s history of racism and the current impact of institutional racism cause over-policing and underinvestment in communities of color and especially in Black communities.” The council also said that it is “committed to confronting structural and institutional racism as a fundamental step towards addressing the racist institution of policing.”

Meanwhile, last week, the same city council voted to close the county jail and other juvenile detention centers.

What could possibly go wrong?

CLOSE the county Jail ??? ok so there compleatly off the deep end ? not even bringing up real crime bUt two drunks fighting in a bar mite need to sober up over night .

No way it goes through cant be done how the heck do you deal with a robbery of say a convince store ?
cant take the guy to prison as county is a holding jail for offences that MAY require prison .
Prison Is the end Result of a =Guilty verdict .

While we do have a REAL police and Prison problem that needs to be addressed desperately .
We also have REAL crimes being committed that being all nice and giving hugs to them WONT solve the problem .

Get ride of the department Fine USE sheriffs better but to falt out close county jail ? even the sheriff cant function without alest a minim county jail for the ones who may be a danger to people .

Stop sending people to county over peddy fines stop sending people to county over owning money stop jailing for profit .
Then you have room to keep the real crimes were they belong OUT of society .
The rights and left both have the same problem is they want To ignore the issues I just pointed out .

So while i am with you on needing some kind of law enforcement i am against POLICING FOR PROFIT .
Prisons FOR proof or JUST FUNDING ask for 16 million only spend 15 next year you get less simply the way Government works privet is for profit and government is for FUNDING .

Both are designed To INCRESS the population in jail . Neither is designed to Rehabilitated people and 90 % can BE .
VERY VERY few people are really full time criminals .

The ones who are may be at most 15 % of every one in jail . which miens we have 2 million in who could become productive people with training and guidance .

Letting all the lunatics out of the asylum to run Seattle. Nothing can go wrong.

I guess the bikers and the gangs will be the new law enforcement.

Get what you deserve

Seattle is a weird place. A lifelong buddy I have lives there, he is pretty sane, a good family man, etc, but man he really believes all of this communist garbage will help him and his family somehow. I have no idea why. I can't even talk about it with him at all.

We totally skirt political issues when we talk now. It's sad. I am willing to talk, he is not. TRUMP BAD!

You mean Socialist Alternative and it's antifa strong arm forces. Ho and to those that wonder what it will look like, Seattle just had that whole CHOP/CHAZ thing to show you what it will look like. Hell Sawant was fully behind and publicly supported the CHOP/CHAZ insurrection she even opened city hall up to them for their protests. She want the police removed from Seattle more than anyone, and now that SA controls city council, it looks like she's going to get what she wants.

Don't expect the mayor or even Inslee to do anything about this, we've also seen how they deal with SA movements and desires. All we have to do is look at how they dealt with the CHOP/CHAZ insurrection.

First businesses small and large will pull out, the remaining ones will as insurance rates skyrocket and those remaining will soon thereafter getting less and less traffic. In about 2 years it will become Detroit. Faster if there are lots of high profile crime and violence, but likely people will just move away and then the city council will learn about how big business is essential for your tax base

You nailed it..
Insurance companies will just refuse to insure business and possibly personal autos and no business will even bother.

I always thought if China tried to nuke the US, Seattle would be one of the prime targets.

It now appears Seattle is run by those in cahoots with the CCP.

Bummer.

Is Seattle city council "moving" in circles? Seems they've been doing this for a few weeks. Or was it Minneapolis? Oh well, it will be fun seeing the mob rake in the dough.. like leaving the Brinks Truck door open.

They might still nuke it.

Chairman Xi wouldn’t want to deal with that trainwreck of a city either.

I say let them eat cake. Give them whatever they want and let them turn their cities to dust at this point. We lived it in Detroit so I know the end result. Give them everything and they will choke on it. It happened before and it will happen again. Decades from now we will get the blame for “letting it happen” but it’s cool. Been there before.
