BREAKING: Seattle city council overrides mayor's veto—defunds police despite public objection
The Seattle city council voted on Tuesday to override the mayor's veto of a bill to defund the Seattle Police Department, voting, again, to defund SPD.
Marxist Seattle Council Member Kshama Sawant has been funneling money from the "Tax Amazon" campaign to her husband and members of her political group, The Socialist Alternative.
Emails newly obtained by The Post Millennial show that Seattle City council members ignored or supported the violence in the occupied area protestors termed CHOP, for Capital Hill Occupied Protest.
Ernie Lou, who lives in Capitol Hill, where activists took over a six block area and held it for 30 days, filed the complaint saying that the councilmember has lost touch with her district.
Seattle City Council Member Kshama Sawant celebrated the resignation of black Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best and the firing of minority officers in the "fight to stop racism."
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, the city's first black female police chief, will resign Wednesday morning after city council enacted massive cuts to the department, and substantially reduced her pay.
Seattle backtracked on their promise of a 50 percent defunding of the Seattle Police Department, but slashed police department programs, and reduced the number of officers on the force.
As the police pushed occupiers out of the area, they found spike strips, knives, and made over 40 arrests in downtown Seattle.
