Seattle Police chief Carmen Best has thrown in the towel and resigned after the Democratic city council voted to cut millions from the police department’s budget following demands to defund the police from Antifa rioters and Black Lives Matter agitators.

Best wrote

“To the Women and Men of the Seattle Police Department – I wanted to notify you that I will be retiring from the Seattle Police Department, effective September 2nd, 2020. I wanted you to hear this from me, but some media have reached this conclusion on their own.”

“This was a difficult decision for me, but when it’s time, it’s time.” Best added.

“Chief Best has been an outspoken critic of the council’s plans to cut SPD’s budget, citing concerns over public safety in a scenario where the department is forced to lose personnel,” KIRO radio reported.

Critics noted that because of BLM, the city’s first black woman police chief is gone:

Responding to Best’s resignation, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said in a statement:

“Know that while I understand the Chief’s reasons, I accepted her decision with a very heavy heart. I have had the privilege to be with Chief Carmen Best in so many situations: with her family, at roll calls, in community meetings, and in nearly weekly meetings addressing public safety in Seattle. Her grit, grace and integrity have inspired me and made our city better. These last months, I knew Chief Best was the person to lead our city through this challenging time, to reimagine policing and community safety. Her leadership is unmatched nationwide, which is why it is a sad day for our City to lose her.”

“Carmen Best is still devoted to this department and our city. I regret deeply that she concluded that the best way to serve the city and help the department was a change in leadership, in the hope that would change the dynamics to move forward with the City Council.” Durkan added.

Best had also been personally targeted by both ‘protesters’ at her home, and the Democrats, with a proposal to cut her pay by 40%:

The move means that approximately 100 police officers, will be laid off.

Reports indicate the specifics of the cuts:

  • Cut 32 officers from patrol – $533,000
  • Reduced specialized units including officers assigned to mounted unit, school resource officers, homeland security, harbor patrol, SWAT team – $250,000
  • Removed officers from Navigation Team, ensuring homeless neighbors are not retraumatized by armed patrol officers – $216,000
  • Reduced staff budget through recognizing expected attrition – $500,000
  • Reduced administrative costs, including salaries, community outreach, public affairs
  • Cut $56,000 from training and travel expenses
  • Cut recruitment and retention – $800,000
  • Transferred victim advocates from SPD to Human Services Department – $377,000 impact
  • Removed two sworn officer positions from the 911 Emergency Call Center

Antifa Gunman Shot Dead by Cops Said His Killing of Trump Supporter Felt Like Start of “Civil War”

Absurdly claims he acted in self-defense.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, the Antifa shooter who was killed by police last night after he pulled a weapon on officers, said in an interview before his death that his murder of a Trump supporter in Portland felt like the start of a “civil war.”

48-year-old Reinoehl was seen exiting an apartment and entering a vehicle in Olympia. As officers tried to arrest him, Reinoehl pulled a gun and was shot multiple times.

In an interview with VICE that was broadcast hours before his death, Reinoehl admitting to killing Patriot Prayer conservative and Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson, but ludicrously claimed he had acted in self-defense.

“I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that,” claimed Reinoehl, suggesting Danielson was about to stab his friend.

In reality, as footage from the murder shows, Reinoehl and another man who heard to proclaim that they had found a “Trumper” before shooting Danielson, whose friend confirmed the pair had been deliberately hunted down.

Elsewhere in the interview, Reinoehl suggests that he shot Danielson not in self-defense, but in an attempt to start a “civil war.”

“Honestly, I hate to say it, but I see a civil war right around the corner,” he said. “That that shot felt like the beginning of a war.”

Observers questioned why VICE was giving a platform to a murderer, comparing the situation to if Fox News had afforded Charlottesville killer James Field a sympathetic forum to defend himself.

Survey: Two in Five New Yorkers Want to Leave the City

Because it’s turning into a sh*thole.

A new survey has found that two in five New Yorkers want to leave the city, citing concerns over the faltering COVID economy and violent crime.

The survey, carried out by the Manhattan Institute, found that 22 per cent think the anemic economy is the biggest issue affecting the city while 21 per cent are concerned about crime and public safety.

Figures show that shootings have doubled and murders are up 50 per cent on the same period last year. This all unfolded after Mayor Bill De Blasio celebrated emptying out New York prisons to protect inmates from coronavirus.

“The survey found that two in five New Yorkers say that they would leave the city if they had the ability to live anywhere they wanted,” reports Fox 5.

There was also a 44% increase in home sales in the suburbs compared to the same time period last year as people flee for bigger homes in safer areas.

The sentiment is reflected in demand experienced by removal companies, which is off the charts.

“Long lines were seen outside of a number of U-Haul stations in the neighborhood across Saturday and Sunday, with moving vehicles lining residential streets and discarded furniture stacked on sidewalks left by locals seeking pastures new,” reported the Daily Mail.

As we document in the video below, with the economy on its knees, trash-strewn streets, violent crime soaring and people now working remotely from home, there’s literally no reason to live in a big city anymore and people are fleeing in droves.

Videos Show Leftists Throwing Objects From Balcony at Trump Supporter Convoy on Portland Highway

Could have caused a serious accident.

Video clips out of Portland show anti-Trump leftists throwing objects at Trump supporters’ cars as they drive at speed down the highway, something that could have caused a serious accident.

One of the clips shows a man with a bucket full of objects throwing them at vehicles to the soundtrack of “Fuck Donald Trump.”

Another clip shows a group of people throwing objects, which could be water balloons or eggs, at the cars. A woman is heard laughing in the background.

The vehicles are traveling at high speed and any object thrown, even if it’s just a water balloon, risks causing an accident.

The incident happened on the same weekend that somebody shot at a car caravan of President Trump supporters parading down Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles.

A Trump supporter was also executed in cold blood by an Antifa militant on Saturday night in Portland.

As we previously highlighted, a gang of three men also fired shots from their vehicle at a group of Trump supporters during a political rally in Charlotte.
