SEATTLE — The push to defund the Seattle Police Department could lead to what's called the "Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention."

City Council members introduced the idea of a new civilian-led department in a resolution on Friday as a place to house services that are moved outside SPD, such as the 911 call center.

Council staff members said the resolution would not abolish SPD, which would remain its own, smaller department.

They will be sending unarmed civilians to situations where they are going to get killed. Of course they will then blame guns and demand we ban them.

If it is adopted, let's watch the crime rate and see if the citizens are safer without a police force, then use it as an example of what NOT to do...
Whose going to track crime?
The newly formed Dept. Of Community Safety? :laughing0301:
Yeah, that's what cracks me up the most.


Seattle lawmakers want to abolish the city’s police force and replace it with a “community-led” safety prevention program, according to proposed legislation released Friday.

Like a community watch program.... like say in Florida.... like when a guy named Zimmerman was attack.....?

I thought democrats were against citizens stopping criminals on their own?

No they're not.


The left has acted like retards in Seattle, and many other places too.

But that doesn't mean believing every piece of right-wing bullshit on the Internet too.

The title of your article is "Defunding Seattle police: City council's plan starts to take shape". May want to quote the relevant parts, but I am not reading any further. Thanks for confirming the OP.
