With the murder rate at a 23 year high and most precincts undermanned the rush for the exits in the Seattle PD is “surprising.” The future of policing in these cities will be fun to watch (if you don’t happen to live there).
The police basically wait for the bullets to stop flying and then call in the ambulance or the morgue wagon and put together the paperwork.
The rich have already flown from these cities to their new perches in more stable communities. But they’ll continue to insist that they’re proud residents of Seattle, Portland, Chicago or New York. I don’t think the cities come back from this one. There isn’t the will. I think we’ve achieved Brazil status. It will be official when the police are replaced by death squads that clear the streets of the rich enclaves of the homeless and criminal elements under the cover of night.
