Seattle voters unhappy with direction of city; guess how they voted to change sheriff’s office!

Earlier I told you how Seattle (King County) voters are unhappy with how the City Council is handling things and the direction of the city. The majority of voters think things in Seattle “have gotten pretty seriously off on the wrong track.”

So what’s a good way to fix some things in the city? Approve amendments that remove your power to vote for county sheriff and give the bureaucrats the ability to change the sheriff’s duties!

Yeah, makes sense if you are a democrat and want to give government more power.

The two charters approved by King County voters are Charter Amendment No. 5 – Appointed Sheriff (approved 56%) and Charter Amendment No. 6 – Public Safety Department Structure (approved 62%). Charter Amendment No. 5 allows the county executive to appoint the sheriff, with approval from the King County Council.

King County Executive Dow Constantine

What’s even more mind-boggling is that Dow Constantine (King County Executive & professional politician since 1997) told voters in September that he wanted to shift millions of dollars earmarked for law enforcement and the traditional criminal justice system into community-based racial justice programs. Read about all of his proposed cuts (he made known in advance) here.

But don’t worry residents of King County! Executive Constantine claims these amendments will “boost accountability.”

He also said this of the approved changes: “It’s going to involve police, yes, but also behavioral health professionals, human service professionals, the kinds of help that may be needed in order to defuse conflicts and prevent tragedies from happening.”

Seattle has become a sh*thole of a city: Increased homelessness, open drug use on the streets, repeat offenders held unaccountable for crimes, increased police response times (if they even make it to your home), etc.

I don’t want to hear of some survey where King County/Seattle residents complain about the conditions of their city. SEATTLEITES DESERVE ALL THAT COMES THEIR WAY.

What’s the current rate of residents moving to safer territory? California has a lot of the same problems and they’re losing residents to Nevada,Texas and Idaho (other states too,but these are,as I understand it,the biggest targets) at record rates.

“The leftists politics of western WA major cities control everything in that state.” I think that’s the trend of the entire country. Look at voting maps over recent years; the middle of the nation has always controlled overall voting with a more centrist-right view. Now, however, the progressive, socialist, and even anarchist left (thanks in part to rampant drug use and release from mental institutes) is spreading like a cancer toward the heart of the country. I believe it’s intentional and PLANNED by such migrations of leftists, like viral vectors, into traditionally-strong conservative strongholds like FL, AZ, and TX. They… Read more »

That’s what the Demonrats did in Colorado — a 5-year plan that they successfully implemented:

And yet Democrats pride themselves on being so intelligent ’cause they’re college educated, and look down on Conservatives, maliciously (and incorrectly) portraying Conservatives as stupid, ignorant red-necks — Biden’s “chumps”.

Holy cow, any body else see the resemblance of Dow Constantine and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler? Or, for that matter, with NYC Mayor DiBlabio? Coincidence?

Looks to me that the real tragedy has already occurred. You can vote your way into socialism, but you’ll have to shoot your way out.
