Demorat-run Seattle is a failed city. Massive homelessness, crime, tagging and a fentanyl crisis (among other issues). Yet residents repeatedly elect ineffective demorats, some how expecting a different outcome.
Yet nothing, absolutely nothing will change.
Proof of the insanity of demorats in Seattle, via the latest headlines:
“Seattle Police recruitment falls short as response times increase.”
From the MyNorthwest.com article:
“Since 2020, the department has lost 515 officers and hired 190. Many have retired, but others said in exit interviews they did not feel supported by the city during the “defund the police” movement following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Due to officers being spread thin, police call response times have increased, with the highest priority calls taking an average of 10 minutes to get a response. “
“Gun violence rising on Washington State highways.“
I know this expands outside of Seattle yet again, demorats are in charge of that state. The demorat governor has passed multiple gun control laws which have had absolutely ZERO impact on crime. And Seattle’s gun crime is on the rise as well. From the article:
“Washington State Patrol (WSP) reports 396 separate incidents of gun fire on highways that state troopers patrol so far this year. Gun violence has increased from 459 shootings in 2018 to 1,058 in 2022.“
So what is the Seattle City Council doing to address the crime, drugs, homelessness and the fentanyl crisis? Take a look:
“Seattle City Council passes stronger tree protection ordinance.“
“The Seattle City Council has passed a new Tree Protection Ordinance. The ordinance aims to preserve and expand Seattle’s urban canopy while allowing for new construction. “After half a decade of work, we have finally passed tree protections that will preserve, protect, and expand our urban tree canopy,”
This legislation takes a One Seattle approach to balance prioritizing tree canopy while also allowing for the development of needed housing – crucial for progress on climate goals, homelessness efforts, and housing affordability.”
Seattle people never learn…
