Dystopia is moving in on Seattle and its suburbs quite rapidly this year. Crime is increasing, the homeless are literally taking over the sidewalks in downtown Seattle, and businesses are leaving due to the onerous Covid diktats of the Dictator in Olympia and his henchmen the Health Nazis. Headline stories today:
Seattle sidewalks overrun by homeless tents. The street people have figured out that the leftists who run the city will never remove them, so they take over. This makes it very difficult for law-abiding citizens and taxpayers to access the business core of the city. You need to click on the link to see the photos.

And in the State (Democrat-run) legislature, they are considering the following bill.
Proposed bill would stop officers from pulling you over for certain traffic violations. This would apply to the entire state of Washington. If officers can’t pull you over for a traffic violation, is it still a violation? If you can’t be stopped for driving with expired license tabs, why bother to renew your tabs every year? Car licensing fees are a big source of revenue for the State, which has no income tax. What will happen when people simply ignore their renewal letters?
First gradually, then very quickly, Seattle and Washington State are being turned into a lawless dystopia. The ones who are doing this are the politicians elected by the People to govern the state; charged with enforcing laws and first protecting Public Safety, they are instead protecting law-breakers. No state or city can long endure, once its laws become suggestions. When criminals are treated like victims, what happens to the real crime victims?
When laws are no longer enforced, there are no laws.
