You folks in blue cities like Seattle who bought into the touchy-feely, ‘it’s all about equality and justice’ BS spouted by the Marxists you elected to your city councils are about to reap what you’ve sown.
And God help you afterward.
It should have become clear to Seattle residents over the summer that law and order had taken a back seat to ‘social justice’ after Mayor Jenny Durkan and the City Council neutered police, defunded them, and allowed a lawless ‘autonomous zone’ to exist for a month before it devolved into a shooting gallery.
But now, the council is preparing to add to the insanity, literally, according to KOMO:
The Seattle City Council is considering new legislation that would create a legal loophole that would made substance addiction, mental illness or poverty a valid legal defense for nearly all misdemeanor crimes committed in the city.
The council’s consideration of the plan has been largely shielded from public view and there has been virtually no public discussion about the proposal.
Scott Lindsay, the former public safety advisor for the city, said Seattle would be in a class of its own if it ultimately enacted the ordinance.
“I’m not aware of any legislation like this anywhere in the United States (or) even globally,” he said Monday. “All cities have criminal codes to protect their citizens from criminal acts. This would essentially create a legal loophole that swallows all those codes and creates a green light for crime.
“If you don’t feel very protected right now, this would wipe out almost all remaining protections that we have,” Lindsay said.
The offenses that would be covered by the Seattle ordinance would include just about any crime below the level of a felony while excluding charges of driving under the influence or domestic violence.
