Seattle Council Member Complains About Police Responsiveness After Advocating Police Cuts

Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant wrote and publicly released a letter to city officials saying that the Seattle Police Department had “failed to investigate” incidents where bags of feces were thrown at her house and into her yard, some with notes calling her “the queen of s***”.

Sawant has previously advocated deep cuts to the police force, forcing the police to cut staff and prioritize their work.

Sawant obviously either cannot make the connection in her mind between cuts to the police force and the ability to respond or she thinks that someone throwing a bag of feces in her yard rises to the level of high priority over violent crimes, felonies, etc..
