The residents of liberal dominated Seattle are now indicating that they’ve had enough of the massive homeless encampments that have sprouted up throughout the city.
As Fox News reports:
Seattle residents met with the city’s interim police chief this week demanding solutions as a growing homeless encampment at a local park has drawn increasing security concerns – and a looming vaccine mandate is likely to worsen an already existing officer shortage afflicting neighborhood patrols.
Residents from the North Ballard/Crown Hill neighborhood held a meeting with Seattle Police Department interim Chief Adrian Diaz Tuesday to discuss increased instances of harassment, open-air drug dealing and use, and break-ins and thefts at local businesses all associated with a homeless encampment at Ballard Commons Park, KOMO reported.
On Sunday, Seattle fire paramedics attempted to resuscitate a 56-year-old woman at the encampment but were unable to save her life. Diaz participated in the community walk, allowing residents to voice their frustrations also after a fire last month tore through tents at the encampment and multiple propane tanks exploded, KIRO reported.
As of Tuesday, at least 765 Seattle police officers, or 84% of the force, had submitted their COVID-19 vaccination information as the looming Oct. 18 deadline approaches, KING reported. Some 100 officers seek exemptions, and 202 have not submitted any proof of vaccination documentation.
Seattle’s mayoral election is slated for this November, the city’s Democrat mayor is not seeking a second term.
