Seattle socialist councilmember believes speed bumps will curb drive-by shootings

Socialist Kshama Sawant

Socialist Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant isn’t the brightest. Back in 2013 when Boeing employees were in the midst of contract negotiations, Sawant said the machinists should take over the plant and re-tool the machines to mass produce transit buses instead of war machines.

Her latest idea? Install speed bumps to reduce drive-by shootings.

As reported by MyNorthwest.com, there has been several drive-by shootings in the Central District of Seattle.

At a recent meeting, Sawant said, “Several CD residents have reached out to us with proposals to address the incidents of gun violence, including concrete changes to space usage and vehicular traffic, which they believe could have a positive impact, and help reduce the incidences of drive-by shootings,”

Sawant went on to acknowledge that “we are aware that environmental design as gun control measures will be insufficient if the overarching problems faced by our society remain unaddressed.”

“Statistically speaking as nationwide studies have systematically shown, reducing inequality has the greatest impact on reducing violence and crime, and improving public safety for working people,” she continued.”
