You tax dollars at work, Seattleites.

Seattle bureaucrats continue to try and solve their homeless crisis keep the homeless industrial complex alive. In 2017 they opened the Licton Springs tiny home village which is a “low barrier” facility meaning residents can freely drink and do drugs.

I couldn’t find the exact cost of Licton Springs but found that the city will pay the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI), an affordable-housing nonprofit, a combined $1.75 million this year to operate six of the city’s villages, including Licton Springs, with SHARE/WHEEL and its sister nonprofit Nickelsville as partners for on-the-ground staff.

MyNorthwest.com reports that the city announced they are closing Licton Springs next year. From their story:

“According to Seattle Police records obtained by KIRO 7, crime in Licton Springs increased 100 percent in just one year. During the same time-period, crime in the larger area covered by the North Precinct dropped 7 percent.”

That’s what happens when you allow criminal activities to go unchecked. See examples here:
