Seattle City Council Overrides Mayor Durkan, Cuts Up To 100 Officers From Police Force

The Seattle City Council voted to override Mayor Jenny Durkan’s vetoes of police and public-safety changes to the 2020 budget.

The Seattle City Council overrode a mayoral veto and pushed through reductions to police funding that will cut dozens of officer positions from the force.

The council decided during a special session on Tuesday to override Democratic Mayor Jenny Durkan, who originally vetoed the legislation shortly after it was passed in early August. The initial cuts will amount to about $3 million, less than 1% of the police department’s roughly $400 million annual budget, according to The Seattle Times.

Council members described the cuts as a “down payment” on future action to defund police and reinvest the money in social programs. In July, seven of the council’s nine members came out in support of cutting the Seattle Police Department’s funding in half, a move that would likely defund an estimated 1,000 positions at the department.

The $3 million cut, which will take effect as soon as possible, will cut up to 100 officer positions from the police force, including 32 patrol officers. The Seattle Police Department’s navigation team, made up of police and social workers who monitor and aid the city’s homeless, will be disbanded. The legislation will also cap officers’ pay, except for the chief’s, at $150,000, according to My Northwest. More

Call me crazy, but isn’t this the same kind of thing that the city government did in Minneapolis that resulted in notable increases in violent crime? I guess some people aren’t very observant and would prefer to learn the hard way. They are playing a dangerous game.

Bidens Family’s ‘Get-Rich-Quick Schemes’ Should Be Disqualifying

Published

Americans should be alarmed by the fact that the family of Democratic nominee Joe Biden appears to be “knee-deep in sleaze,” Fox News Laura Ingraham said.

“People like the Bidens — and the Clintons for that matter — they don’t have to take formal bribes,” explained Laura Ingraham. “There is no need for any smoking gun. They simply do everything possible while in office to help rich people and to fight off movements … that would force big business to pay higher wages.”

Laura Ingraham added that “during the years between 2000 and 2016, a lot of middle-class folks wondered, ‘What happened to our good-paying jobs and wages? … What happened to all the prosperity we were supposed to see from allowing China into the World Trade Organization? If you look at the Bidens and the Clintons’ paydays, well, you can see where some of that money went.”

Laura Ingraham noted that one purported email uncovered by the New York Post showed Hunter Biden demanding a Chinese oil tycoon pay $10 million for introductions with people like his father, then the vice president.

Biden Tells 56% of Americans Who Say They Are Better Off Under Trump: Maybe You Shouldn’t Vote for Me

A majority of voters said they are better off now than they were four years ago, according to a Gallup poll — a result that will be seen as a good sign for Trump’s reelection chances, and a finding the president described as “incredible.”

On Monday Joe Biden was asked about the polling results during an interview with WKRC-TV.

The reporter asked: “Gallup reported last week 56% of Americans said they were better off today than they were four years ago—would’ve been under the Obama-Biden administration. So why should people who feel they are better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?”

Joe Biden responded, “Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t. They think- 54% of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly,” Biden told Inskeep. “And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans. He’s not very honest with people. He’s flouting the conventions relative to public safety in terms of even now- not wearing a mask, a guy who has been a super spreader. But look, whatever they believe they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period.”
