Seattle’s Transit System ‘Unusable’ due to Toxic Fentanyl, Meth Smoke

Liberal and progressive city Seattle is literally becoming toxic. Rampant with crime and drugs, it has become impossible for the average citizen to ignore. The Seattle Times reported Monday that local authorities have stated its transit system has become “unusable.”

The Times reported the transit system has become overloaded with reports of toxic fentanyl, meth smoke and volatile behavior. It has created a toxic work environment for employees and has scared off travelers.

In an attempt to turn things around, the city plans to release a new “Safety, Security and Fare Enforcement Initiative” in February. The initiative incorporates surveys and comments from 8,000 people.

The Times reports that plan hopes to improve the dangerous environment, welcome back commuters, but also show compassion to those who are doing drugs, and especially homeless people, as “a necessary step on its journey to becoming an anti-racist mobility agency” according to the King County website.

Complaints of smoke from narcotics use such as meth and fentanyl surged last summer, surpassing complaints about individuals using needles and smoking marijuana. The unarmed security monitors for the metro have zero authority to arrest or remove individuals from public transportation.

The Metro Transit Authority (MTA) has also shied away from using law enforcement against the homeless population after the death of George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests, some of the most violent and destructive of which occurred in Seattle.

Seattle Police Detective Patrick Michaud told the Seattle Times that police officers in the city do not regularly patrol the transit system, and illegal drug use is considered a “lower priority than violent crime.”

Transit operator Erik Christensen has reported six incidents of fentanyl, meth or heroin smokers snice just October. “We just want them off the bus. Just get them off the bus, so we can drive” said Christensen.

In Denver, drug use at the downtown train station was deemed “a lawless hellhole” in December due to the amount of public drug use. The Seattle Times reports “a television newscast aired a worker’s video of defiant users. Police made arrests, and the transit agency closed restrooms after finding traces of fentanyl” in Denver’s Union Station.

    Democrats are ruining their own cities and states. People are leaving them in droves and moving to conservative areas where they know they will be safe. So why do people in these liberal enclaves continue to elect liberal leaders?

    Nothing new here. Seattle died long ago. Downtown is a cesspool no law abiding citizen dares to enter after dark and only by force during the day. This is the end stage of Liberalism.

Kilo of fentanyl found on children’s mats at Bronx daycare, 4 children overdosed, 1 year old boy dies

Two Bronx daycare employees have been charged by federal prosecutors after fentanyl was found on top of children’s mats. The drug findings were connected to the poisoning of at least four children, all younger than 3 years-old. Tragically, one of the children, a one year old boy, died.

The two adults were charged with narcotics possession with intent to distribute resulting in death and conspiracy to distribute narcotics resulting in death.”This case reflects every parent’s worst nightmare,” New York Police Department Commissioner Edward Caban said in a statement. “These alleged drug traffickers brazenly went about their illicit business in one of the most ill-conceived locations imaginable, but they will be held accountable.”

The Center Square reports:

Prosecutors alleged that over the summer, Mendez and Acevedo Brito and others conspired to distribute fentanyl, including at a children’s daycare center in the Bronx. The complaint alleges the two “maintained large quantities of fentanyl, including a kilogram of fentanyl stored on top of children’s playmats.”

On Sept. 15, four children, all younger than 3 years old, appear to have experienced the effects of poisoning from exposure to fentanyl.

Before Mendez called 911 to summon medical assistance for the children, she called another person, referred to as an unnamed co-conspirator in the complaint. That person came to the daycare, stayed for about two minutes and then left out a back alleyway carrying two shopping bags. This happened while the children were unresponsive.

“Tragedy doesn’t begin to describe the events that took place at Divino Niño Daycare,” said Special Agent in Charge Frank Tarentino III of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New York Field Division. “This death and drug poisonings are every parent’s worst nightmare and clearly define the danger fentanyl poses to every New Yorker.”
