Seattle is ‘Hell on Earth’ after Defunding Police

Seattle’s aggressive ‘defund the police’ movement resulted in over 400 officers quitting, leaving the Seattle Police Department drastically understaffed.

The Seattle Times reports crime is soaring, with a 95% increase win shots fired and a 171% increase in people being shot from 2021 to 2022.

The Police Department is unable to investigate new sexual assault cases due to lack of resources, and Seattle’s violent crime rate, “which had been steady fo 30 years, suddenly jumped 20% in 2021” reports The Daily Caller News Foundation.

One area which demonstrates what goes wrong when progressives transfer responsibilities from police for “feel good” purposes cost the city a whopping $5 million.

The Seattle Times  reports roughly 100,000 parking tickets worth approximately $5 million total is being refunded after transferring parking enforcement duties “from police to civilian parking enforcement officers in the fall of 2021.”

Civilian officers “lacked the legal authority to write the tickets” and “Parking officers also conducted more than 10,000 car tows and impounded 1,700 cars without the proper authority during this period.”

“The decision to remove this responsibility from police was part of a push in 2020 to reduce police funding and have civilians take on jobs typically handled by police, according to The Seattle Times. The City Council cut the police budget by 17% in 2020, far short of its 50% goal” reports DCNF.

“What’s going to happen here is that we’re going to get sued, I can guarantee it,” said Chuck Labertew, president of Lincoln Towing, which has the sole contract for city-initiated towing, according to The Seattle Times. “And I’m going to forward every one of those lawsuits on over to the city” he said.

It’s one thing when progressive policies result in the city having to fork out millions of dollars, but there is no price tag on what those same policies are doing to victims of sexual and violent crimes when police cannot help them.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
