Crime

ALERT: Seattle Has Fallen ⚠️

on

Seattle is facing a severe shortage of police officers as they continue to leave the department behind. Who can blame them? They are sitting ducks for  Antifa and BLM and they don’t dare fight back and they are continually bad-mouthed by city officials.

Worse yet, when they are attached the local DA drops all charges in most cases. In 2020 an incredible 193 police officers retired or resigned and no one is looking to take their place as the crime rate soars.

Jason Rantz of KTTH radio in Seattle reports that the police are still leaving in huge numbers. there are 66 police officers who have left so far and they are predicting it will be 100 by the end of May. That would indicate that they will lose over 200 officers this year at that pace. It’s tough to work for people who hate you and constantly campaign on eliminating the police force. Thankfully I live in a red state.

Rantz said:

Though the city has not yet officially released staffing numbers, officials have expressed significant concern publicly and privately about the staffing situation. The city does not have enough officers to safely protect our neighborhoods or respond to emergencies.

In 2020, 193 officers officially left the SPD. That is a historic number, one that came after nearly a year of relentless attacks from the Seattle City Council and radical activists.

Jason Rantz:

During that time, the council cut the SPD’s budget dramatically, despite a clear uptick in crime. Seattle hit a 26-year-high homicide rate as a result. But that didn’t stop the council from trying to cut even more from the budget. That attempt was a failure, though the council promises to revisit.

From PJ Media

The exodus accelerated after the George Floyd riots in Seattle and especially after CHAZ/CHOP activists attempted to torch a police building with officers inside. They attempted to seal the door so officers could not escape the flames.

City leadership did not back up the cops. Instead, they piled on, creating even more morale problems.

Among the anti-cop council members is Kshama Sawant, who called police officers “murderers.” But Rantz notes that she’s got plenty of company on the nutty Seattle City Council.

Kshama Sawant has been quick to label officers murderers. Teresa Mosqueda defended a man who threatened to murder officers, calling his anger “justified.” Lorena Gonzalez and Lisa Herbold even tried to fire officers on the basis of their race. If you are white and work for the SPD, you were at risk of losing your job.

EVERY "REAL AMERICAN" SHOULD SINCERELY HOPE THAT MORE AND MORE POLICE RESIGN OR RETIRE, SO THAT ONLY MAYBE A DOZEN REMAIN.  THEN MAYBE THE LOONEY CITIZENS OF THIS WRETCHED TOWN, WILL ELECT NEW MEMBERS ON THE COUNCIL, AND A NEW MAYOR.  UNLESS THAT HAPPENS, CRIME WILL STILL BE GOING ON, WITH NO PUNISHMENT GIVEN, AS IT IS NOW.

Where's the Washington State National Guard? They should have been deployed to prevent this from happening.When you concider who is running the state and our federal government, the answer is plane enough.

With gun control laws and no police protection, only criminals have guns and they don't care about the law anyway.

I was invited to a 65th re-union in September but I'm not going. I have to fly 2400 miles to get there and can not take any weapons on the plane. I lived there a good part of my life and I got out of there, I saw all this phony business coming. It is really, really sad. No Ivar's Fish & Chips for me. That I miss !

The next chant you will hear is "Defund the Military" after we get the troops home from overseas. Remember where you heard that. It's coming soon.

IK think it will be hilarious next year when they try to budget for Social Programs now that the Tax Base has evaporated or moved out!

While they are defunding the police they are also spending a huge amount of money with private security protecting themselves. Seems that doesn't bother the voters enough that they would vote them out or demand they resign.

Glad they're getting out of that cesspool.  When there is no one left to protect the innocent, the innocent will have to move out too.  How unfair to law abiding folks and police officers who have spent their careers serving and protecting.

 Well now the DA is the chief law enforcement officer, so let him and his staff, mayor and their supporters take over and enforce the laws, arrest criminals and do the duties they want done, since they did not support the Police Officer that were doing it.  Let's see how that works for them, with all their bright ideas of defunding the police and all.

Seatle will make a nice good sized farm once all those nasty buildings are burnt to the ground.

Totally support the officers leaving!  i am hoping this becomes an epedemic in all major blue state cities.  Turn the streets over to the criminals and let the blodd flow.  That is the only thing that will wake up the complacent "woke" cancel culture to the fact that they have planned their own deaths.  Support the Blue!

I love it when these moronic libs need the police,....but wait, they never need anything, right ??  Gotta Love it,...and just a warning lib, don't come to my neighborhood looking for safety or food.  You'll be stacked up 400 yards out.

This State has bcome a killing field for the scumbags in power.I hope the people that live there have weapons to defend them selves?

It was clear a year ago this was going to occur. The same will happen in Portland and most, if not all Dem ran cities. When the mayor doesn't support you, let the thugs take over part of the city, loot and start fires, and the police officers are not allowed to do their jobs why would they stick around? Who wants to go to a low paying job where you are treated like crap and blamed for stupid ppl who commit crimes and resist or try to kill you and you shoot them, you are fired and sent to prison?  No police reform is needed, but citizens need reformed in not being so stupid to commit a crime then fight or resist arrest as well as brandishing a weapon and so they are killed. This is the citizens stupidity, not the cops. Seattle and Portland Mayors are weak and let this crap go on so long and not letting cops do their jobs, these riots will continue and cops don't want to waste their time for nothing.

I will tell you now. I heard this from someone that knows a lot of things. Seattle is trying to get didout their police force so theycam being in theirown kind of law enforcement. When that happensSeattle and the rest of Washington will turn into a dictatorship and will have a Gestapo like police force. Blm and sniffs that is getting away with all the stuff they do are going to be the fittest people they take out. They are only using those groups to actually get rid of the police tio bring in theirown and they will call martiallaw there but these groups are to stupid to see howtheyare being played. Thereason they stay there is because Seattle let's them do all those things with no consequences. You don't see them coming tio other places and staying long because other places are not going to pour up with it. But you just wait until the official turn on Blm and antifa. They won't know what hit them. They are going to be so blind sided and confused and deserve everything that is about to come to them.

This is an effort by the current administration and radical groups like antifa and BLM to insert a federal police force (eg martial law/military).  You swore an oath to protect and serve.  Please, for all that is good, don't leave.

Let the city council do the police work, they wouldn't last a day. Sorry for the citizens that back the police, you have to defend yourself against the people you elected.

Who can blame the police from resigning when they get no support.I feel sorry for the people of Seattle who support the police.

The people of Seattle deserve what they are getting. They voted these kooks into office.They made their bed. Now they are having to sleep on it. But these libs won't sleep on it. They'll just move to another city and wreck that city too.
