After what has happened over the last year, it’s amazing that the city of Seattle has any police left at all.
The city has handcuffed the police department, while they have let far-left radicals run wild in the city.
Antifa smashes windows and destroys businesses, and city leaders just look the other way.
In the mean time, the same city leaders smear the police as racists.

Rantz: Seattle City Dept. defends vicious all-staff email labeling cops white supremacists
The Seattle Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) sent an all-staff email calling police officers white supremacists. Seattle cops are livid, but the agency is backing the hateful, dangerous message. It’s the latest blow to a dwindling police force losing officers at an alarming rate.
Under the heading “Black Lives Matter,” the email excoriated Seattle cops as serving “the false gods of white supremacy,” called them “mercenaries and zealots,” and argued they are “paid in the wages of white privilege.”
The email itself isn’t just offensive; it is legitimately unhinged. It reads like a manifesto from a violent radical…
Rather than acknowledge the email is over-the-line and offensive, a FAS spokesperson defended it in a way that a foolish person thinks will be introspective. But it’s mostly condescending and annoying.
“If we have learned anything from the past year — when COVID-19 disproportionately ravaged communities of color and the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others laid bare how entrenched systemic racism is in our country — it is that we cannot afford to stay comfortable,” Melissa Mixon (she/her/hers) wrote to the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.
Police are leaving the city in droves. Is there any wonder why?

What is the city going to do when no one wants to do this job anymore? Bring in social workers?
