Send in Reinforcements
With the sun shining and temps rising, I wanted to see what it looked like in #Chinatown-ID Thursday afternoon during the lunch rush. Without fail, I saw a crush of fentanyl addicts passed out on the street with foil littering the ground. One dude even spit on me and tried to punch me in the head. Remind me never to go out to a #Seattle drug den with flip flops.
Thankfully, King County Sheriff’s Deputies were there and gave me some disinfectant to clean my sleeve and bailed me out. Otherwise, listen to the dire situation right now in the King County Jail. Deputies say they are NOT arresting anyone for misdemeanors out here! In other words, it’s turning into a game of whack a mole. It’s the worst kept secret in the city! No wonder we aren’t seeing any progress in downtown. Gonna be a long summer.
By the way now might be a good time for CM’s Tammy Morales (@CMTammyMorales) and Kshama Sawant (@cmkshama) to show up to their hoods for the sake of their constituents. Especially the students at Summit Sierra High School who are still facing a gauntlet of drug users and an illegal black market. Why are we letting our kids face this insanity? Ladies and gentlemen, Seattle is broken.
Remind me to Avoid this Dude
This fella lunged at me, took a swing at my head(missed), and then eventually spit on me. The addicts hate to be exposed, but they have no problem trashing the streets of #Chinatown-ID with foil and blowing second hand fentanyl smoke into the faces of high school kids walking by. This is #Seattle.
Back in February, I broke the story about major public safety concerns outside Summit Sierra High School. Students at this #Seattle charter school face homeless encampments, drug dens and crime all around them. What about their rights?
