INSANITY: Seattle Looking To Replace Police With ‘Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention’

In recent months, the city of Seattle has been the scene of multiple riots and the now infamous ‘CHOP’ zone where people were actually shot and killed.

You would think the people of Seattle would want to bolster their police department, and some of them do, but the far left city council has other plans, and they are from out of this world.

The New York Post reports:

Seattle City Council move to abolish police department with new bill

Seattle lawmakers want to abolish the city’s police force and replace it with a “community-led” safety prevention program, according to proposed legislation released Friday.

Arguing that the Seattle Police Department “perpetuates racism and violence” and upholds “white supremacy culture,” the Seattle City Council moved to redirect cash to a non-profit, civilian-led “Department of Community Safety & Violence Prevention” — and offered a “blueprint” on how to defund the police, according to the resolution.

Under the bill, cops would be replaced by “community-led activities” and organizations focused on “housing, food security, and other basic needs” along with “culturally-relevant expertise rooted in community connections,” according to documents posted by Christopher Rufo, Director of Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth & Poverty.

This part sounds like it came directly off of a liberal college campus:

To gain police department funding, groups must show they are “well-versed in de-escalation skills” along with “trauma-informed, gender-affirming, anti-racist praxis” and are “committed to hiring staff from the communities they serve,” according to the proposal.

Would you feel safe in a city that handled crime in this way?

Do the local officials in Seattle think a civilian led social justice agency is going to be able to maintain law and order while investigating serious crimes like murder?

This is madness.
