That's amazing.  Takes redistribution of wealth to a new level.  I wonder how one would go about "proving" poverty?  If my wallet was stolen does that temporary poverty give me a free pass even though I have money in the bank?

Flipping mad

Quote
“When the arbiters of justice serve the false gods of white supremacy, they are not worthy of the power they wield,” Holmberg writes. “If police protection and restraint extend only to white people, they are no longer guardians; they are mercenaries and zealots, paid in the wages of white privilege, inflicting their wicked commandments upon us.”

Holmberg then ties cops to the Jan. 6 riot, which Holmberg says resulted from an unnamed “organized domestic white power terrorist cell (or cells).”

What surprises me is that the whole of the Seattle PD hasn't walked off the job. They're losing officers at a dramatic rate.

There were reports last year that the PD's in all those cities were seeing a huge increase in retirement requests.  I imagine most all of them have resumes out to neighboring suburban departments and elsewhere.  The concern I have heard mentioned is that any cops who would refuse dictatorial orders will be gone before long replaced by cops that will do whatever the leadership wants.

That's still going on. Seattle, in particular, has been really hard hit. They're down a couple hundred officers right now, hiring is at a virtual standstill, and they're set to lose a lot more officers this year through retirement and intent-to-separate notifications, and it's not going to get any better if the council keeps up with crap like this.

Crime has been skyrocketing in Seattle, and it's only a matter of time the way things are going that law enforcement largely breaks down in Seattle.

I have been interested to see the stories in the local media about the number of new lateral hires in Snohomish county law enforcement from Seattle.

Does Seattle do the cash-less bail or at least have they increasingly let suspected felons loose on low or no bail?

The judges in Houston have increasingly done that and Houston is seeing more crime.  I have heard it is the bail issue along with very generous plea bargains.  I need to keep up with local news a bit more.

As you might expect, this "attitude" isn't limited to Seattle.
The new mayor of St. Louis, Tishara Jones, is still talking about taking money from the SLPD for more "social programs" and not filling the nearly 200 vacancies in the rank & file officers.  She is getting flak from many residents in north St. Louis, the predominately poor/black section, as they are complaining about the increasing levels of crime and the obvious lack of police in their neighborhoods.

Washington, DC, is in the same position. The force has lost something like 200 officers since the beginning of 2019, and no new officers have been retired. Even worse, the 2022 budget has NO funds for hiring new officers.

It's looking right now like another 100+ officers will separate by the time 2022 rolls around.

DC was in something of a similar position back in the 1970s and 1980s (for very different reasons) with a concomitant spike in crime rates, especially murder rates. It took a court various court orders to get them hiring again, including court orders that dropped the qualifications... It was an unmitigated disaster. A fair number of new police officers had criminal records, and continued their criminal activity while on the job. Huge scandals. And, around the same time, DC switched to Glocks from revolvers... and cut training budgets to the bone. Another unmitigated disaster as unintentional shootings SKYROCKETED. The city ended up paying out millions in settlements.

A lot of cities are on the same path, and it's going to take decades to sort out. We're quickly moving back into the situation in the 1970s where criminals ruled many of the major US cities and residents who could fled to the suburbs.

Houston had 400 people murdered last year.  They are at 199 as of early June from what I just got from a search.  Wrong direction for that one to move. 

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/crime/article/Houston-surpasses-decade-high-for-murders-15716892.php
This link has a chart of historical murder data, but a subscription pop up keeps blocking me.  However, it looks like we haven't see 400 or more since the early 90's.

And in a recent story in the newspaper, fact checker Politifact (perhaps it should be fact twister Politifake) went through all kinds of verbal contortions to argue that concluding anti-cop actions by democrats in democrat cities really can't be blamed as the cause of rising crime there.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

They don't need to go through verbal contortions. They can just come out and say that it's "Extremist white supremacy - the greatest danger to the US today."

Actions (and speaking words counts as actions) have consequences -- even for Democrats.
