Seattle Leader Who Called For Defunding Police Wants VIP Treatment From Police Over Threats

Kshama Sawant is a radical, far-left socialist who sits on the Seattle City Council.

She is one of the people who has been demanding the defunding of police for months.

Yet now that she has received some threats, she is complaining that the police investigation of the threats is too slow.

Why is she even involving the police? Hasn’t she forfeited her ability to use the police for her own safety?

KTTH Radio in Seattle reports:

Rantz: Seattle CM who defunded police complains of slow investigation, wants VIP treatment

After defunding the Seattle Police Department, with promises of more cuts to come, Socialist Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant is criticizing a detective for not offering her VIP treatment in an investigation into email threats she received.

Sawant wants extra attention and resources to resolve the issue. But that isn’t possible. The SPD’s staffing is exceptionally low thanks to Sawant’s successful crusade to chase police officers out of town and cut their budget.

It’s an odd demand, not just because Sawant routinely attacks the police, but because she didn’t bother to do even a modicum of research into the basics of police work. Honestly, watching a single episode of Law & Order could clear up most of her ignorance…

In a Twitter tirade, coinciding with another press release to garner sympathetic media coverage, Sawant again played victim.

Typical double standards from the left…

Police for me but not for thee.
