    https://medium.com/@seattleblmanon3...ill-to-the-government-of-seattle-ddaee51d3e47 Some of the highlights.

    1, The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform, we demand abolition.
    7,We demand a retrial of all people of color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crimes, by a jury of their peers in their community

    We demand the City of Seattle and State Government release any prisoner currently serving time just for resisting arrest if there are no other related charges, and that those convictions should also be expunged.

    We demand that prisoners currently serving time be given the full and unrestricted right to vote, and for Washington State to pass legislation specifically breaking from Federal law that prevents felons from being able to vote.

    We demand an end to prosecutorial immunity for police officers in the time between now and the dissolution of the SPD and extant justice system.
    "Huh thats a new one"

    We demand the abolition of imprisonment, generally speaking, but especially the abolition of both youth prisons and privately-owned, for-profit prisons.

    We demand that the funding previously used for Seattle Police be redirected into: A) Socialized Health and Medicine for the City of Seattle. B) Free public housing, because housing is a right, not a privilege. C) Public education, to decrease the average class size in city schools and increase teacher salary. D) Naturalization services for immigrants to the United States living here undocumented. (We demand they be called “undocumented” because no person is illegal.) E) General community development. Parks, etc.

    And on it goes. The place was kind of nuts when I was there 40 years ago and now its bonkers.

    I remember going there a decade ago and thought it would be nice to go back. Now, not so much.

    I would almost do it like we did it. Stay at the edge of the city, drive in for the day, drive out at dark, leave in the morning.
