Drug Insanity Fueling Homeless Crisis

Even w/more @SeattlePD patrols, drug deals/use happening DAILY. Especially in #Chinatown-ID. This past weekend, I saw it all go down in front of kids. System BROKEN.

All Corners

#Chinatown-ID is in vicious cycle. Addicts use abandoned storefronts and vestibules to do drugs. KIDS just walking by! @nwasianweekly did a tremendous piece on the biz EXODUS in the community because of all the drugs, homelessness, and crime. I’m doing a follow up.
