@SeattleFire and @SeattlePD saved man’s life earlier today in #Seattle as he overdosed on #fentanyl. When will lawmakers realize this is a drug addiction crisis? You can’t build your way out of this! @GovInslee @MayorofSeattle @kcexec @SeattleCouncil @CMAndrewJLewis
We see it on 3rd Ave and Little Saigon daily. City leaders must now admit it’s an addiction crisis. Every encampment is littered with drug paraphernalia. Out of record 310 homeless deaths last year, majority were #fentanyl related. #Seattle
Actual Breakdown of Homeless Deaths Seattle 2022

-18 homeless people died by homicide.

@KCPubHealth‘s Dr. Faisal Khan says “the medical examiner’s office is now struggling with the issue of STORING BODIES because the fentanyl related death toll continues to climb.” @GovInslee @kcexec @MayorofSeattle #Seattle #KingCounty
“Harm reduction” lobby is adding fuel to America’s drug epidemic. Unlimited needles, foil, and supplies to get high. But little intervention or requirements for addicts to get treatment. And this industry is profiting handsomely. #Seattle
It’s the Drugs, Stupid
Resilient small biz owners like @RohanJoseph12 huge part of 2022 narrative. Fed up with #Seattle‘s drug addicts disrupting biz, he’s documenting every single encounter and now personally trying to change the culture on his street.
#Chinatown-ID continues to unfairly shoulder burden of crime, drug addiction, and homeless crisis. This past September, I documented numerous instances of addicts injecting in front of kids. @GovInslee @kcexec @MayorofSeattle @kc_rha #Seattle
The drug epidemic is so bad in #Seattle, I now carry Narcan since I encounter addicts daily. In October, a guy was “tweaking” on drugs in traffic near Lams’ Seafood on King St. He refused help. @GovInslee @MayorofSeattle @kcexec @SeattleCouncil
Every Homeless Encampment
Back in October, I caught up with these fellas in SODO. Why are we allowing homeless addicts to die on our streets? We are losing a GENERATION. Where is the intervention? @GovInslee @kcexec @MayorofSeattle @KC_RHA @seattledot
Seattle’s Unending Drug Crisis
I spent months reporting on 3rd Ave. in downtown Seattle and Little Saigon. Despite efforts by @MayorofSeattle and @SeattlePD, open air drug dens/black markets are THRIVING. #Seattle @GovInslee @kcexec
