    Seattle is now completely lost. There seemed to be a faint glimmer of hope when Mayor Durkin pulled her head out of her ass for a microsecond and vetoed defunding the police. But the liberal city council successfully overrode that veto and is now moving forward with massive budget cuts in their effort to defund their police.

    It’s sad but I have no sympathy. You Democrat voting idiots truly get the government and soon the city you deserve.

    In order to be lost, one must first be found and have a rightful place.

    If Seattle was ever accused of having a rightful place, I doubt there would be evidence enough to convict....

    <1% is almost meaningless, but the writing is on the wall. Get out now before home prices collapse.

    This meaningless number lets the council beat their "we did something" drum. I wonder which one of those 7 idiots that voted to override the veto is looking to replace the current mayor.

    Seattle will be rolling out the red carpet for their new UN Overlords soon.

    What I find interesting is that the liberals who have recently infiltrated GT to write smack about Trump and call me names for not wearing a mask don't participate in threads like these. Must be more in the middle than their friends on the DU.

    I'm guessing that looks worse than it is. Give the anarchists something to focus on....make them FEEL like they're "making the police retreat". At least there are no buildings burning or businesses being destroyed. Make them concentrate on the police....let them march all the way across down with the cops in reverse if that's what it takes. At least they aren't destroying things.

    I also wonder if there was proactive police movement somewhere else that we didn't see in a 10 second clip. I'm guessing yes.

    I was hoping it was a pied piper move and the police were baiting those losers into a flanked ambush at the intersection.

    Despite a couple of isolated incidents of police officers kneeling, and the politics their leaders play at their expense, the police in this country are never going to completely yield to anarchists or rioters. This country will have to be a VERY different place before that happens.

    Trust the current police tactics. There is almost always a method to their madness. Don't trust only one single clip.

    I'm not sad at all for nincompoop Democrat voters. On top of defunding their own police, I hope Fed dollars can be withheld from Seattle.

    The flaccid Seattle government has allowed that city to exist in chaos, flames, anarchy, for months.
    :flag: :fred:
    No law, no prosecution, defund police? No Fed support. I like that.

    This will be an interesting social experiment in Democrat on Democrat violence.

    Less policing works multiple ways. People can shoot rioters without an agency collecting evidence. Vigilantes can be more organized as well.

    Why do you guys keep calling fascists liberals? There is nothing liberal about marxists.

    I was afraid my homes value was in jeopardy. But most people leaving Seattle want to stay local. Where I live is very rural but only 40 miles from downtown Seattle. We have been seeing the increasing property values a little slower here. Until now. I bought a place in SE ID last summer to retire in. I am seriously thinking about moving most of my stuff there and selling this one now. Then just rent a place or an RV spot for the last few years. There are insane bidding wars on houses here. Most are not for sale. Those who live here figured it out years ago.
