Liberal utopia of Seattle: Areas see 31% increase in crime in 2018

It doesn’t take a genius to guess the main culprit for the increase in crime in Seattle. As I’ve noted many times on this blog, the homeless are not held responsible for their criminal activities throughout the city. Read about the many crimes committed by the homeless here.

The Seattle Police are also slow to respond (if they even respond at all) to crimes.

MyNorthwest.com reports that certain areas of Seattle (SoDo and Georgetown) have reported a 31% increase in crime compared to a 1% increase citywide. The crimes include property damage, commercial burglaries, thefts, and motor-vehicle thefts, including 510 cars broken into.

Excerpts from the MyNorthwest.com report:

“According to business owners, the area is developing a sense of lawlessness with garbage piles, graffiti, drug abuse, broken-down RVs, prostitution, and numerous incidents of theft and property damage. It’s impacted the feelings of safety among business owners and customers, as well as those living in RVs, themselves the target of many of the crimes.

“I feel sorry for the people down there who have businesses,” Curley said. “It must be an awful thing to have to deal with that every day.”

In response, police have dedicated a squad from 3 a.m. to noon in the area when most of the crime is occurring, and have dispatched a Community Police Team to perform outreach to those living in RVs.”

Anyone wanna bet the mayor and members of the City Council don’t live in those neighborhoods?

The police departments have been stripped off all authority. If an on-duty officer is killed, nothing happens, if a thief, a drug dealer, a gang member or anybody for that matter is killed by a police officer, hell pours out onto the streets “my son was a good boy” and “that son” was carrying a gun while committing a crime, and killed the policeman that was protecting the neighborhood.

Ever notice that whatever the Democratic Party touches turns to shit? But why does this keep happening? Yes, there’s more than enough voter fraud to go around, but, judging from the lunatic fringe, it would seem to me that America is not as moral as we like to pretend we are. This has been going on since at least the 1960’s, and the Sexual Revolution and abortion haven’t helped. Yes, the Democratic Party has many American cities and some states in a stranglehold, but so does the general malaise of amorality. So what is the solution? The solution, it seems… Read more »

Thank you for keeping us informed, DCG. I like watching the Hallmark Channel, and they are always very friendly with Seattle, Chicago and Vancouver, BC. I don’t blame them; their mission is to give their viewers entertainment that is kind to the soul. But the problem is, we might make the mistake of thinking these cities are perfectly okay, and that could be a very costly mistake. If I get the opportunity to visit any of these places, I will do so with my situational awareness set to 10.

The 2nd doesn’t do you much good except keep you alive so the gumment can prosecute you for killing someone that was asking for it. See above “slow to respond (if they even respond at all)” The cops won’t protect you. A law abiding citizen that supports themselves, family and community. But let one of these poor, underprivileged homeless people get hurt by the good guys and the weight of the world comes down on them.

Remember, they don’t work for us. They don’t see this as a “failure” at all. THEIR goal is to stay in power so they can do their owner’s bidding and remain close to all that lobbyist loot. They never get anything “right” because they couldn’t care less. They want illegals because they don’t like laws that keep their voters South of the border. All that matters to the left is that their owners keep patting their nappy little heads and to do that they must push The Plan. The Plan calls for our destruction and they’re well on their way… Read more »
