If cop retirement works the same there as it does here, I can certainly understand why she retired. Here in Pa, cop retirement is based on your last 2 years pay. If they were cutting her pay, they were cutting her retirement too.

Maybe people are mad because despite being a women of color she spent her days defending the worst people in her department. I dunno.

Why do republicans think these are "gotcha" points? I swear if a transgender person was convicted for murder and a liberal said "good" republicans would say "Oh, transgender people can do bad stuff now?"

I can't say that I blame her for getting out of Dodge while she still can.  The politicians are on the side of the rioters and criminals, and the prosecutors won't bother to charge people who get arrested.  On top of that, troublemakers have been coming to her house, and the city council slashed her pay.  Why bother at all?

Just leave and let Seattle fall into ruin.  That's what they want, so let them have it.

Yup, just a bunch of widows and orphans were minding their own business when "WHAM" .....tear gassed.

You know they just don't go lobbing that stuff around for the hell of it, right?  Specific legal conditions must be met before tear gas and impact munitions can be used.

Better than that. With the budget cuts a lot of police will be eliminated. The ones with the most seniority get to stay. So the council has also managed to eliminate the majority of POC and LGBT cops. All that's going to be left are the old white jackbooted thugs.

But... they do. They do lob tear gas indiscriminately.

That's one of the reasons folks are protesting.

When a jackbooted thug is beating me, my first concern is whether xhe is a Person of Color or a white man who doesn't even take it in the ass. The latter would be problematic.

She was also upset over the cuts made to her department's budget.

And by 'cuts' we mean $4 million worth.

Her department's budget is $400 million dollars. She's upset over a 1% cut to her budget. 1%. I'm pretty sure Seattle PD spent more than $4 million on the endless barrage of teargas, pepper spray, concussion grenades, and blinding protestors; members of the media; and people providing basic medical care to the injured with 'LTL' rounds this year ALONE.

If the prosecutors would charge criminals in uniform for assault and murder this all would go away. So it just depends which criminals you want them to be on the side of.

I'm not surprised a cop who rose through the ranks over 25+ years is down with their brutalizing 7 year old kids with mace, but I'm not pleased with it.

And if we've learned anything since the invention of the camera phone and livestreaming, it's that law enforcement officers always follow all legal conditions before using force. Anyways, I was just popping in from the best timeline, how's everything going over here in the darkest?

Conservatives running their collective pie holes about places like Seattle, Portland, and California being shiatholes are so ignorant it hurts.

She was as much a fascist defender of the abusive police state as anyone. When Joe Rogan(I know, I know) interviewed Baltimore cop Michael Wood, one of the things that he brought up was how black cops are often worse, as if they have to prove to their white colleagues that they aren't soft.

Nothing makes sense in this world. You have Jews working for Nazis nowadays.

So... all the conservative strongholds in the country that are now poor and can only export nothing (on a good day,) are full of intelligent inhabitants who's only crime is that they don't have the same natural abundance as we do on the West Coast?

That seems really weird considering that places like Appalachia are categorically beautiful and still contain no more or less natural resources than presented here in the PNW.

For what it's worth I'll take a city full of employed, educated, succesful "moron's" over whatever you have to offer in bumb fark who cares-ville.

To be fair, was any of the tear gas fired by federal "officers" that were "protecting" the federal building? I'm not sure myself. Just, she might not have been the sole person ordering the tear gassing of everyone. The blame must be shared, and fire the others as well.

i was born in Baltimore, grew up just outside of DC, lived in NYC, LA, and San Fran and now live in Philly.  i visited Seattle last August.  i felt unsafe on the street in broad daylight.  i'm used to drug abusers nodding out in public, but Seattle was bizarre.  scores of nodded out junkies laying across the sidewalks in front of million dollar shiat holes.  i've never seen so many million dollar shiat holes and then to have a gauntlet of junkies nodded out, wow.

and it wasn't a certain part of the city, it was everywhere i went.  stayed in Queen Anne, went down along the waterfront, then over to Fremont and Discovery Park area... blew my mind how visible it was and the number of people consumed by heroin.  i felt safer walking in SE DC in 1989 than i did in Seattle in 2019.
