Seattle. Is. Dying.
- “Homeless camps” springing up like overnight mushrooms.
- An explosion of drug use and the rampant crime that comes with it.
- Law enforcement unable to enforce the law.
- Families not feeling safe in their own neighborhoods.
- Residents feeling like they’re not being heard or protected by city officials.
- People living in filth and squalor, dying in the streets.
How did Seattle get to this point? How can this be who we are? How did “compassion” get so twisted?
These are some of the questions raised in Seattle is Dying, a searingly insightful and provocative documentary by KOMO 4 News. In this one-hour documentary, KOMO’s Eric Johnson explores the impact the drug and homelessness problem is having on Seattle and possible solutions.
Indeed, the once-proud city is on the ropes. For years, Seattle’s Lefty electeds have pursued and promoted policies that not only don’t work, they’ve actually made the problems worse.
National Review picked up the story in its April 8 issue, adding:
The political hacks who have let this beautiful city plunge into anarchy finger homelessness as the core the problem, but as Johnson’s reporting makes clear, it is rampant and untreated and unprosecuted drug use — which sets off the chain reaction of widespread crime and intense degradation of public places (upset yourself and check out the Facebook page Seattle Looks Like Sh**) — that is the core of Seattle’s decline.
Since Grays Harbor faces similar issues regarding homelessness and drug use, every thinking Harborite would do well to listen up.
Haven’t seen it yet? Don’t worry. I gotcha covered:
Yep, Seattle Looks Like Sh*t. is an actual Facebook page. Check it out yourself.
Seattle is Dying is a non-partisan, in-depth look into what happens to a city under DemoSoc rule. Ditto a state. And a county. It’s Exhibit A in why Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote Democrat.
Too simplistic? Watch the video start to finish. Compare what’s going on in Seattle and how DemoSoc politics and policies have run that city into the ground with what’s working in Providence, RI. Then weigh in.
Incidentally, what’s working in RI ain’t a needle exchange program. Or throwing more money at social problems.
Watch. The. Video. Here’s the link again.
