Recommendation for Seattle Residents

August 6, 2020 |

So, if you defund the police, what do you replace them with?

According to a blueprint reportedly backed by a majority of the Seattle City Council, the Police Department “perpetuates racism and violence” and upholds “white supremacy culture,” so they want to replace it with non-profit programs and “community-led activities.” They’re seeking groups that are “well-versed in de-escalation skills and mental health support,” including “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis,” and that are “committed to retention of social service workers with adequate and equitable pay and benefits, preferably unionized” and have a “demonstrated commitment to a harm-reduction model, including safer consumption practices.” They'd also better have really excellent medical insurance benefits.

There’s a lot more of this touchy-feely, leftwing fantasyland word salad at the link, but to help the citizens of Seattle, I’ll boil it down to just one word:

“MOVE!”

    Dear Gov. Huckabee,
    Unfortunately, despite citizens wanting to move out, it isn't that easy. Many have very good jobs at companies based in Seattle. While working remotely is currently the norm, working remotely across state lines or time zones would be very difficult. Until the major corporations pull out and take their tax dollars and employees with them then one of the main problems will remain. Just sayin'.
