My favorite definition of Karma is "What comes around goes around" and Seattle, the most Leftist large city in the country, is a classic example. This is a city run by a Democrat mayor, city council with the most politically correct police department on the West Coast. This is a city that never turned down a request to raise taxes. This is a sanctuary city full of criminal illegals from the everywhere in the world. This is a city that has filled the campaign treasury for Obama has voted for him in mass twice. This is a city that allows "Black Lives Matter" to routinely disrupt traditional city events like lighting the city Christmas tree in Westlake Park. This is a city whose mayor invites bums to live anywhere they please in downtown Seattle.
THIS IS A CITY THAT BORDERS ON ANARCHY WHERE PRIVATE CITIZENS ARE FORCED TO PROVIDE THEIR OWN SECURITY!
The obvious solution to Seattle's growing lawlessness is to give the Democrat mayor, the city council and the police chief the bum's rush to the door and replace them with honest Republicans...But when was the last time that happened in the most Leftist city in the country?
For Angie Gerrald, crime in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood has reached a new low. From illegally parked RVs to open drug deals, the longtime resident sees piles of used needles on her routine runs, she said, and other problems she says police sometimes ignore.
“The blatant lawlessness has been a whole new era” this past year, Gerrald said. “There is so little response — so little they [police] can and will do about it.”
Hundreds of residents in Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia and Fremont share Gerrald’s frustration over crime and police response near their homes and businesses, and it’s sparked a citizen-led movement to improve surveillance. They cite incidents of burglaries, thefts and illegal drug use over the past year, for instance — crimes they believe are rising with the city’s growth.
Crime data support their complaints, to some extent. Since 2010, police have seen an increase in property-related incidents in Ballard, Queen Anne and Magnolia, though 2015 saw no spikes in such reports, according to the police department’s online crime dashboard. Those crimes include burglaries, larceny and motor-vehicle thefts.
