Take a look at one of WA ST Gov. Inslee’s new police force task members

In response to the shootings at CHAZ/CHOP, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted the following:

“We are going to take a hard look at how we manage independent investigations of police use of force in WA. Our new task force will recommend actions we can take to create a more just WA. It includes community leaders, impacted family members and law enforcement representatives.”

In this Twitter thread he lists all the members of the task force. This includes Livio De La Cruz – board member, Black Lives Matter SEA-KC.

He/Him: BLM SEA-KC board member and JD candidate Livio De La Cruz

Let’s take a look at Livio (he/him), shall we? From he/him Twitter bio: “JD Candidate 2022 at SeattleLaw. Freelance #Unity3D Programmer #GameDev, He/Him.”

Yes, Livio is going to study law. Which should make you very nervous considering this tweet by he/him on June 22:

“1. Police kill people
2. Seattle protests this
3. Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed
4. White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.
5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

There’s A LOT of presumptive and unproven statements in this tweet. You’d think a JD candidate would be able to back up all of he/him assertions with some facts, right? Here’s he/him following tweet:

“Do you know what it’s like to have people in power call for your death, to have them shout their bloodlust so loudly that the entire country hears it, only to have everyone blame YOU for the death that results from this?”

I’m no JD candidate yet I did take debate class in high school and learned how to prove my case. Here ‘ya go, Livio:

1. “Police kill people”

Yes, police do kill people. They kill in self defense, a criminal committing a crime, protecting a victim from a criminal, and in some cases of police brutality. They also kill people who are unarmed.

Police have contact with MILLIONS of people throughout the US every year. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s database of police-involved shootings, nine unarmed black people were shot and killed by the police, compared to 19 unarmed white people.

What’s your point, Livio, about “police kill people?”

“Police kill people” is a generic statement. Accidents kill people. Rioters kill people. Drugs kill people. A lot of things kill people.

My point is that police kill less unarmed black people than white. What is your point, exactly?

How Seattle “protests”/Q13 Fox News photo

2. “Seattle protests this”

Yes they do. Seattle protests that police kill people while they also loot, riot and burn down businesses. Because nothing says protestors are against police brutality by creating violence throughout your city.

I would also put forth that your definition of “protests” has been arbitrarily expanded to include the illegal occupation of public/private property and terrorization of fellow tax-paying citizens.

3. “Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed”

Please provide evidence where republicans state that PEACEFUL protestors deserve to be shot and killed. We all know that the First Amendment, with qualifiers, applies to protests. Why leave out that one important word? I’ll wait.

For all those “protestors” who riot, loot and burn businesses, yes, they do deserve to be shot. That’s called self defense or affirmative defense, and one has a reasonable right to defend real or personal property. As a JD candidate, do you believe that law-abiding taxpayers and property owners should forfeit their legal rights to protestors?

4. “White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.”

Livio, you provide no evidence of this statement. As a JD candidate, you should understand that you have a duty to provide a burden of proof and evidence that establishes the truth of your statement. Produce something that may pause me to consider your claim.

I know of no white person who showed up at the recent Seattle protests with their guns to shoot and kill. I’ll wait for your evidence.

5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

In the absence of rules of evidence, I guess this conclusion works for you.

Good luck in law school, Livio. And good luck in the courtroom.

One man dead after shooting in Seattle autonomous zone; Warlord not happy they were left to their own devices

A shooting occurred in the wee hours of Saturday in Seattle’s “CHAZ” or “CHOP,” whatever they are calling themselves these days. One man is dead and another is being treated for life-threatening injuries. From the Seattle Police:

“Homicide detectives are investigating following a fatal shooting that occurred early Saturday morning at 10th Avenue and East Pine Street. One man was declared deceased at the hospital and another male is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

On June 20th, at approximately 2:30 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a report of shots fired in Cal Anderson Park. This is inside the area referred to as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP). Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims. Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP “medics”.

Read the whole SPD statement here.

Last night the “Warlord” of the autonomous area of Seattle, Raz Simone, made it known that he was not pleased with Seattle EMTs. From his Twitter:

First of all, EMTs are not going into a homicide area (and possible still-active crime scene) without law enforcement backup.

Secondly, Raz needs a dictionary.

Life comes at you fast sometimes…

America, get ready for your police-free reality: Police have no duty to protect

We all have a notion about what government is suppose to do for us, especially since we give them our hard-earned money in the form of taxes.

Yet when it comes to your protection, you will find that many times your protection comes down to being YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. Because, you know:

When police are sworn in to office, they take an oath to “serve and protect.”

Yet with demorats’ current hostility toward police and their desire to abolish the police, why would one risk their life to protect you?

Did you know that police don’t have a duty to protect? (More on that below).

A resident in Seattle stuck in the middle of “CHOP,” is finding this lesson out the hard way. Watch his Daily Caller interview below:

A case in 1981, Warren vs. District of Columbia, went before a District of Columbia Court of Appeals which determined that the police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine.

Warren vs. DC in a nutshell: Women called the Metropolitan Police Department because men broke into their residence. The police came to the residence and one drove by while another knocked on the front door and left after no answer. The officers left five minutes after arriving, without catching the intruders.

The women again called the police and for some reason, the call was not dispatched to police.

The women ended up being held captive by the intruders for 14 hours and were beaten and raped.

The decision (from Wikipedia): In a 4–3 decision, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals affirmed the trial courts’ dismissal of the complaints against the District of Columbia and individual members of the Metropolitan Police Department based on the public duty doctrine ruling that “the duty to provide public services is owed to the public at large, and, absent a special relationship between the police and an individual, no specific legal duty exists”. The Court thus adopted the trial court’s determination that no special relationship existed between the police and appellants, and therefore no specific legal duty existed between the police and the appellants.

Read about the whole case here.

If the demorats and BLM keep up with demonizing the police and attacking them, we’ll soon see a lot more police exercising their legal right.

Despicable: Seattle protestor tells cops to kill themselves

These people are SICK. Both mentally and spiritually. Pure. EVIL.

Jason Rantz, from KTTH Radio in Seattle, reported the following on Twitter last night:

Take your guns, put them onto your chins, and pull the trigger.

When a man shouted at cops to kill themselves or the crowd will “tear you apart” instead, Seattle Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda (@CMTMosqueda) told the public that the anger is justified.”

More from Jason’s story on MyNorthwest.com (read the full story here):

“SPD, I need you to do me a favor. Take your guns, put them onto your chins, and pull the trigger,” the man yelled. “I need you to kill yourselves. That’s your only redemption. Go ahead, save us the trouble of tearing you apart and *****ing kill yourselves. Did I stutter? I said ‘k-k-k-kill yourselves.

Listen to the video here.

#LoveTrumpsHate is so cancelled. It’s now, “kill yourself!”

How awful the left have become. I’m afraid there is NO unity possible with people like this.

Committed to public health: Washington State governor extends “stay at home order” while homeless in Seattle free to set up camps at every street corner

Demorat Governor and failed presidential candidate Jay Inslee issued a “Stay at Home” order for Washington on March 23. This past Wednesday he confirmed that the order would continue beyond May 4, He did not indicate when that order would be lifted and is expected to provide more details today.

Guarantee you it will go on and on and on.

He also thanked Washingtonians for their commitment to public health, despite an upheaval to daily life.

Want to know exactly HOW committed the governor is himself to public health? Just take a look at what is going on in Seattle (specifically, the Ballard area): The city has paused the cleanup of homeless encampments sweeps.

Here’s a picture of what is going on in downtown Ballard, courtesy of Rob Harwood who shared them with Jason Rantz of MyNorthwest.com. See all the pictures here.

Homeless tents set up along a street in Ballard (Seattle)/Rob Harwood photo

Due to the Wuhan virus, the city is not making homeless encampments disappear. The homeless are free to set up tents where ever they want. Tell me how homeless people, without access to proper hygiene facilities, are positively contributing to “public health?”

Are the homeless disposing of their trash properly? Are they using restroom facilities or the streets? Are they able to wash their hands? Do they have to wear masks?

And of course with more homeless comes crime. It’s so bad that some residents are suggesting that one arm themselves (always a good idea, IMO). They don’t feel safe in their own neighborhoods. Read that story at KOMO News here.

Washingtonians are ordered to stay home while the homeless and criminals are set free. That’s how they protect public health!

Seattle Mayor Durkan says economic recovery will be made with an eye towards “equity” and “social justice”

On Tuesday Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan tweeted the following:

“As a City, we are rethinking how City government can respond to the urgent needs of our community & create a foundation for recovery, and our decisions about our emergency response and economic recovery will be made thoughtfully, with an eye towards equity and social justice.”

Because those who are unemployed or were forced to close their small business are really concerned with social justice rather than paying their mortgage or feeding their families.

The mayor’s office prepared a new economic forecast in response to the Wuhan virus in which they predict the impacts to the City budget will range from $210 million to $300 million. If their forecasting capabilities are anything like IHME, the city will be WAY OFF target.

Want to know what the city is doing to help prepare for their impending, massive decrease in revenues? They’ve implemented a hiring freeze, a freeze on contracts and expenses not related to COVID-19 or essential services and “curtailing” discretionary spending not related to COVID-19 response or mitigation.

Heaven forbid the city look into furloughing non-essential workers in order to curtail spending. After all, #WereAllInThisTogether, right?

The city of Seattle (population roughly almost 750,000) has nearly 10,000 employees. How does their bureaucrat expenditures compare with those of other large cities? Let’s take a look, shall we?

According to Ballotpedia (data from 2015), the average spent per citizen in the largest 100 cities was $2,605. The median city budget in the largest 100 cities was $800 million.

The city of Seattle spent an average of $6,744 per citizen and their budget was $4,400 million. See the statistics from Ballotpedia here.

The city of Seattle’s 2019-2020 total budget was $5.9 billion.

Jobless claims in King County have been 40,000 or more per week since the stay at home order issued by Gov. Jay Inslee. The number of City of Seattle employees who were furloughed? ZERO.

In 2017, full-time Seattle city workers earned a median of $99,184 in salary and overtime, a 12 percent increase over five years, remaining above the median household income for city residents of about $80,000.

How “equitable.”

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee speaks, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash. Inslee was urging the passage of bills enforcing safe gun storage and enhanced background checks when buying or selling assault weapons. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) ORG XMIT: WATW110

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

Guess how much WA State governor wants to spend to “fight” homelessness

Liberal utopia of Seattle/Q13 Fox photo

You will not believe the amount of taxpayer dollars Gov. Jay Inslee wants to spend to fight homelessness in his state. Actually, it’s not surprising at all.

What IS surprising is the small impact the MILLIONS of dollars will have in solving anything associated with the homeless industrial complex.

You can read the whole story about the governor’s plan here at MyNorthwest.com. I’m just pulling excerpts of the governor’s initiatives. Take a look at these numbers (which are in addition to Seattle and King County’s numbers):

Total amount the governor will include in 2020 supplemental budget: $146 million
Total cost over three years: $300 million
$66 million to “reduce the point-in-time count of unsheltered individuals by 1,890
$15.4 million to provide permanent supportive housing for 1,080 people

It’s been four years since former Seattle Mayor Ed Murray declared a homeless emergency. And it’s been 14 years since King County developed their ten-year plan to end homelessness. During this whole time, the area has been run by progressives.

In Seattle/King County they currently spend ONE BILLION taxpayer dollars annually to “fight” homelessness.

Guess the plan is to never actually “end” homelessness but rather just “fight” it. Courtesy of taxpayers, of course.
