‘Defund the Police’ Mayor Jenny Durkan Does An About Face As Crime Continues To Rise In Seattle

A surge of gun violence in Seattle over the weekend continued through Monday morning, with two additional shootings reported as police and city leaders grapple with how to respond. In total, between early Sunday morning and Monday morning, four people were killed and seven were injured in six separate shootings across Seattle. In a city where the push to defund the Police Department has gained political momentum and leaders, activists and law enforcement officials continue debating what the future of policing should look like, Mayor Jenny Durkan argued Monday that the spike in violence shows there are times when traditional policing is still needed.

Anyone who supports defunding the police is an idiot.
