Seattle is preparing to slash the city’s police budget just as homicides in the city climb to their highest level in more than a decade.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is set to sign a city budget that includes an 18 percent cut to the Seattle Police Department, a move that comes after police reform activists demanded the police budget be reduced by half. Calls for police reform have abounded in cities across the country since May, when George Floyd died at the hands of police in Minneapolis.
The city council voted last week to slash about $69 million in funding for officer training, salaries and overtime, and get rid of vacant positions in the police department as well as transfer parking officers, mental health workers, and 911 dispatchers out of the department. The goal is to ultimately reinvest in alternatives to police in situations such as mental health crises.
Oh well, who cares. The Seattle citizens are to blame for their politicians and if a few innocents get killed, robbed, assaulted, run over by a car, well, they took one for the liberal team.
The liberals have made it clear they really don’t about people’s lives, they just care about power and money.
Will you denounce this?
I will. These Seattle liberal politicians are awful, evil and disgusting in their anti-police attitude.
Join me in agreeing….Mr. law enforcement supporter?
You are awfully quiet on this open, liberal, war on police story…
I thought you were pro law enforcement?
You stand by and say nothing against these awful, liberal, politicians while they attack law enforcement?
Sorry k, I hadn’t seen this. It was buried by all the other nonsense you guys are forever spouting.
No, I don’t support cutting budgets for law enforcement in general. But since I’m not (nor are you) involved in the budget process in Seattle, I won’t speculate further on their motives. Nor should you.
>But since I’m not (nor are you) involved in the budget process in Seattle, I won’t speculate further on their motives. Nor should you.
Oh good, you finally took a stance. Since you were never involved in writing or various translations of the bible, or any of the leadership of anyone’s church, we won’t hear you speculate on Kevin’s faith any more. AMEN!
Or any other subject forthat matter.
I guess we’ll be saying goodbye to the sociopath.
Sorry j, but I haven’t questioned his faith, but rather his unsupported claims. You really need to pay more attention.
Wow. That was an uninspiring defense of law enforcement!
I see. You will not speak a word of criticism of evil attacking law enforcement…if the evil politicians are liberal.
Awful. Just awful.
You have all the morality of a hooker on a street corner.
And the sociopath lies again.
Why are you so hateful?
>Sorry j, but I haven’t questioned his faith, but rather his unsupported claims
I didn’t say that.
>You really need to pay more attention.
Ironic that you didn’t pay attention to what I wrote, and then said that. More jackass-ery from the “expert”.
