In the leftist paradise of Seattle, Washington, the city has decided that it is indeed wise to cut the city’s police budget by a whopping 50 percent. The problem is that this leaves them with a bit of a problem as policy dictates that layoffs must first begin with those recently hired.
Why is that a problem? Because the majority of Seattle’s officers who were recently hired were minorities. As such, it would appear that a city councilwoman has found the solution to the problem, and as tried and true Democrats have done since the old days, she found the answer in racism.
Seattle city councilwoman Lisa Herbold took to Twitter and highlighted that there is a danger in conducting layoffs to minority officers and SPD staff, so her solution is to ignore seniority and just terminate employment based on skin color.
