Not Enough Police: Seattle Drivers Go Crazy In The Streets


This is the result of defunding the police.

Utter chaos engulfed the streets of Seattle last night.

While police were dealing with fires, rocks being thrown at them, and vandalism drivers near the Space Needle took full advantage.

A Seattle driver was caught on video doing “doughnut” spins on the street before slamming into several people.

The video your about to see speaks for the situation in Seattle loudly:

Fox News covered the chaos and reported these details:

A Seattle driver illegally doing “doughnut” spins on a street near the Space Needle on Saturday evening slammed into several people in a crowd that had gathered to watch the spectacle, according to a local reporter.

The driver appeared to be hanging out the window while attempting the dangerous stunt.

Around 150 people were watching the exhibition that went for well over an hour with no police in sight, Cole Miller of KOMO-TV in Seattle reported. The activity happened to occur within view of KOMO’s newsroom.

“Given that police are tied up with protesters, I’m guessing this is a low priority,” Miller tweeted of nearby demonstrations for Breonna Taylor.

The car’s bumper was hanging off after the collision when it also hit another car.

Defunding the police is not the answer.

If anything the city of Seattle needs more police.

Kir0 7 News chipped in too:

Drivers are using your neighborhood as a racetrack, with crowds showing up uninvited for high stakes competition.

The pandemic means fewer cars are on the road. Street racers are taking advantage. And the danger is moving closer to homes.

This has become an unwelcome soundtrack to life in some Seattle neighborhoods.

“We can see them doing doughnuts,” said Jessica Toro, Pioneer Square resident. “And we can see how close they get to a group of kids.”

Street racing is happening in places usually reserved for driving or parking.

She says she has called Seattle Police many times.

“In the beginning, they didn’t respond at all,” Toro said. “They gave us the response that, ‘They’re working on it. They’ve had multiple calls.’

Seattle recently voted to defund their police but that decision was overturned by the City Council.

They need help quick!
