‘Woke’ Seattle: 118 police officers quit; PD dangerously understaffed

Seattle, Washington is reaping the “woke” mayor Jenny Durkan and city council’s indulgence of violent left-wing radicals.

No need to defund the police. The police are defunding themselves by quitting.

First, it was Police Chief Carmen Best, the city’s first Black police chief, who resigned last August when the Seattle City Council approved historic cuts to the Seattle Police Department, including a $100,000 paycut for Best. See DCG’s post, “BLM achieves justice in Seattle: First black police chief resigns“.

Now, some 118 police officers have left the Seattle PD en masse.

Jason Rantz reports for KTTH AM770 that on October 16, 2020, the City of Seattle unveiled data showing at least 118 Seattle police officers had left the department in recent months, including even new recruits. In just the month of September, 39 officers quit, when the typical number for that month is between 5 and 7. 

At the same time, the Seattle PD’s Human Resources Department disingenuously is withholding staffing numbers, ignoring a public disclosure request from KTTH’s Jason Rantz Show. According to reporter Ranz, “it seems apparent that they purposefully withheld them.”

Mike Solan, President of Seattle Police Officers Guild, said: “This is fixable if our elected leaders start supporting police, instead of pandering to a large activist crowd that’s dividing us when we need unity. False narratives about good people doing policing, pushed by the defund movement, is making our public safety efforts devolve further.”

The departure of 118 police officers leaves only about 1,200 officers in service for the entire city, the lowest it’s been in two decades. Even this number is misleading because many officers are using their accrued sick time as they begin their escape to other agencies or wait for retirement.

Since the population of Seattle in 2019 was estimated to be 753,675, by my calculation, that means the city now has one police officer for every 628 residents, or 15.92 officers per 10,000 population:

The formula used to calculate the rate per 10,000 population is:

Number of police officers (12,000) divided by total population (753,675) times 10,000 = 15.92 officers per 10,000 population

According to Governing.com, the average number of police officers per 10,000 population for cities with 500,000 or more in population is 24.3.

Seattle’s 15.92 police officers per 10,000 population means the city’s police department is dangerously understaffed.

Seattle sheeple, you voted for this!

Joe Biden says cops should not “shoot to kill” but “shoot them in the leg”

Last night Biden said this at ABC’s town hall:

If you’ve had firearm training, you know how all kinds of wrong this is.

First of all, one of the basic firearm safety rules: Never let the muzzle cover anything that you are not willing to destroy. There’s no safety rule that says, “point the muzzle only if your goal is to maim.”

Secondly, try hitting a leg (faster moving and smaller target than center mass) when you are faced with an escalated and possible life/death situation.

Third thing: Shooting someone in the leg is NOT de-escalation.

Fourth, after you’ve tried this “de-escalation” technique and have thoroughly pissed someone off after “maiming” them, this may not stop them from approaching you with a knife nor from drawing a concealed firearm. In which case, they may still be coming after you.

But this is liberal logic for ‘ya. It’s not designed to make sense.

Hypocrite: Kamala Harris gets protection with weapons she wants to ban YOU from having

Kamala Harris has stated she wants to ban AR-15 style “assault weapons.”

Joe Biden’s web site states he will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons.

And because Kamala is a typical, hypocritical demorat, she’s entitled to protection by the weapons she wants to ban YOU from owning.

The Daily Mail reported that while Kamala was in Miami recently she was guarded by a Secret Service officer armed with an assault weapon – the same type of gun she vowed to ban. More:

“There was also a heavy police presence guarding the venue where Harris spoke, with at least two dozen officers protecting the Democrat who supports defunding the police and reallocating funds to community organizations and educational opportunities.

Harris has supported redistributing police funding, saying in June, ‘For far too long the status quo thinking has been to believe that by putting more police on the street you’re going to have more safety. And that’s just wrong, that’s not how it works.”

Read the whole story here.

Remember in November.

Hypocrite: #DefundThePolice actress Alyssa Milano called police about ‘gunman’ near her home

Aging actress Alyssa Milano exposes her saggy boobs in a low-cut blouse at SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing, October 2018

Actress Alyssa Milano, 47, now long in the tooth for Hollywood, has refashioned herself into a Demonrat political activist. See:

In August, Milano called for defunding the police and urged her Twitter followers to support the People’s Budget L.A., which would allocate only 1.64% of general funds to law enforcement.

But when Milano heard gunshots in her neighborhood, guess what she did.

She immediately called the police for help.

Carly Ortiz-Lytle reports for the Washington Examiner that last Sunday morning, September 20, Alyssa Milano called the police when, hearing gunshots, she thought a gunman was on her Southern California property. Police were told that the suspect was “male, 40 years old, with long rifle.”

A fire department vehicle, a helicopter, a K-9 unit, and seven Ventura County Sheriff’s vehicles, with deputies carrying rifles and wearing tactical helmets, were dispatched to Milano’s home.

A resident of the neighborhood where Milano lives with her husband and two children said, “We first noticed the helicopter circling overhead very low and knew something was going on; it’s usually such a quiet community. Then, we saw all the police cars parked in front of Alyssa’s home. They had their guns at the ready and seemed very serious.”

Milano and her husband told first responders that the sound of gunshots “scared their dogs.” The two were reportedly concerned that Jeff Turner, who has allegedly stalked Milano for over a decade, had returned to the property after two previous burglary attempts. Milano obtained a restraining order against Turner in 2008.

The search for the gunman lasted three hours until a teenager turned himself in.

It turned out the “armed intruder” was a neighborhood teen with an air gun shooting at squirrels.
