Retiring Seattle police officer torches leadership in 15-page exit letter

Seattle, Washington, like so many other U.S. cities, used to be a highly desirable place to live and visit, but sadly, that's no longer the case. 

Part of its downfall is the rampant homelessness, drug, and all manners of crimes that take place on it streets, thanks in part to the absolutely asinine radical progressive movement that defunded its police department.

According to Fox News, a freshly retired Seattle cop used her exit from the force to make headlines, as she penned a scathing letter to the Seattle police brass, holding nothing back as she torched them for how the department is run today.

Fox News noted:

Lt. Jessica Taylor, formerly of the Seattle Police Department, retired on Aug. 1. However, instead of filling out the standard exit interview form, she wrote a scathing letter in which she lambasted Police Chief Adrian Diaz, Mayor Bruce Harrell and the Seattle City Council for allowing the city to descend into "anarchy & chaos."

In the letter, Taylor slammed the current chief, and said that while things were already bad when he arrived, it only became worse on his watch.

"Chief Diaz, let me tell you, the state of the Seattle Police Department and this city is a disgrace," she wrote.

Taylor added: "The toxic mix of the Seattle City Council's absurdity, the spinelessness of the Mayor, the leniency of the prosecutor's office, and your failed leadership has accelerated this city's downhill slide straight to rock bottom. The problems were already brewing before you came on the scene, but since your arrival, it’s been a free fall into anarchy & chaos."

In her 15-page exit letter, Taylor noted that politics has risen to the top of the city's leadership priorities over the residents of the city and their safety.

She rightfully noted that criminals no longer worry about the consequences of their actions, on the rare occasion there are any at all.

"The Seattle City Council has lost touch with reality and is making decisions that defy common sense and basic logic," Taylor wrote.

She added, "Their priority is playing politics and pandering to radical ideologies, rather than genuinely serving the city's and its residents best interests. Their absurd policies have turned Seattle into a playground for anarchists and criminals, and they seem utterly unconcerned with the devastating consequences of their actions."

"The people of this city deserve leaders who will stand up for what's right, enforce law and order, prosecute those who break it, and prioritize the safety and well-being of its residents above all else. It's time for a reckoning, and the citizens of Seattle deserve competent leadership," she continued.

Sadly, the situation in Seattle, and many other West coast cities, looks like it will become much worse in the coming years short of a significant change in policies.
