I don’t recommend you visit.
It’s irritating to watch from a city nearby and see all the garbage that is going on down there.
The City and County Councils have gone off the rails. The mayor is a failure. Chaos in the streets (continues) and chaos in the government.
Homelessness is rampant. Drug use is up, even to the point that the city is providing space to allow and encourage it. Mismanagement of funds. Sheltering illegal immigrants.
“Handcuffing” cops so they can’t deal with unruly “protesters,” but just making them stand there to watch the lawlessness or take the physical and verbal abuse.
CHAZ and then CHOP.
Defund the Seattle PD by 50%, which is causing a mass exodus of officers to other communities.
Close the King County Jail within the next several years and completely stop youth incarceration. They want to take the position of the sheriff from being one voted on and into the position to one of being appointed.
They are trying to tax big businesses in the city and county to ungodly levels, which will eventually drive them out, not only from the city and county but very likely even the state (Bezos is public enemy #1 instead of the rioters destroying the city and holding parts of it hostage).
Make any sense? Any of it?
None. Not one bit of it.
Unless, your playbook was written by Marx. And Lenin. And Stalin. And Mao.
Ah, suddenly a picture comes into focus.
Don’t visit Seattle. Don’t be a tourist. Certainly don’t even think about moving there. Stay away from it. I have decided that I will avoid it as much as possible. No more visiting (it’s not safe). No more sports teams (can’t guarantee getting to the stadium will be safe). No more exploring. No more spending. No more.
Don’t visit Seattle.
