And Seattle's police chief resigned following the defunding. Good for her.

Wonder what "news" network she will end up on?? Maybe she will do the news network circuit.
I heard she has a PoC offer from a small town in TX. :rolleyes:

Many of my friends entered a near catatonic state in 2008 where they stopped thinking and all started repeating the same script, like the pod people. In 2016, they all received the command to lose all self awareness and sense of irony.

This story could be made to be politically biased. In fact, many stories this summer could be made to show political bias. I am trying to reply to this story without political bias. But man, we are seeing societal breakdown consistently from one political side. That side has become extreme in its mission and execution.

I guess my way of balancing this reply is to say, the solution to one extremism isn't the opposite extremism.

Part of me feels sorry for all the folks of Seattle. But not much.

I truly feel sorry for the normal folks, those who want to live a normal life, raise a family, enjoy the beauty of the Pacific NW and respect the rule of law and civil society. But those folks seem to be in the minority these days. They are going to pay the price.

It won't be long before the new Chief of Police is telling the residents to comply with the robbers.

It's sad to watch what was once a beautiful city sink into the swamp. Wonder how many of the libs there will move to California?

Maybe they'll replace the Chief of Police with a new Chief of Social Awareness. The 3 million they save can be used to hire new social workers to replace LEOs. They will be unarmed, so money will be saved on firearms, ammo and training. Rapists, murderers, and arsonists will be met with calm understanding, and since they won't be arrested or prosecuted, crime stats will drop quickly. It's such an awesome plan, what could possibly go wrong?

I almost feel sorry for the people in Portland. There is a runoff election today in Portland for an empty city council seat. There is an ultra liberal and a ultra anti-police homeless advocate socialist running. All of the money is going to the socialist. I am betting on the socialist to win.

That's where a huge bunch of them came from initially. I kind of doubt they will want to move back to the chaos in LA or San Francisco.

They will move to a conservative area that has better cost of living and livability. They will pay cash for a home and drive up the cost of living. Then they will vote liberal and be surprised when the new place turns into another cesspool.

Their annual police budget was $400 M. So yes, $3M would be slightly less than 1%.

Surprised? No, not at all. they do that intentionally. It’s a shame that we don’t have multiple currencies to prevent them from being able to use inflation to their advantage.

It will be interesting to see how the people in Seattle do after they stop getting regular truck shipments of everything! At that point I'll bet that they might realize the de-funding police was not such a great idea! At the same time the cities that didn't de-fund the police are getting regular shipments of goods via trucks and its business as usual!

One has to wonder IF there are any normal folks in the NW large cities anymore. If there actually are and they didn't vote when these fools were put into office, sadly I guess they get what they deserve? The majority who actually did vote definitely will reap what they have sowed.
These crazy, insane times make no logical or rational sense.

We live outside Tacoma, WA, and seriously thinking about moving. We are retired and our house is paid for, it's time to sell. Montana is looking good for us. Maybe Idaho. But will sure miss the Pacific NW climate, mountains, lakes, and ocean.
