Shocking Insight Into Why Seattle Police Officers Are Leaving The Department In Droves

(Tea Party 247) – Poor leadership.

A Marxist city council.

Continued attacks on police officers from a small group of radicals who are never held accountable.

This is the common theme of exit interviews from Seattle police officers, who are leaving the department in record numbers following a year of civil unrest and city-sanctioned animosity towards police officers.

The Post Millennial recently obtained over 175 pages of exit interviews conducted during the exodus of 118 officers who left in 2020 amid riots and protests that so often target members of SPD.

In September alone, a stunning 39 officers left the force.

They note that similar comments can be seen throughout the interviews from different officers explaining why they are leaving.

Many express frustrations with the city council, who has joined in the nationwide trend of approaching perceived racist policies in policing by calling to defund the police, as officers are strained and overburdened with the difficult task of keeping the public peace amid anti-police protests.

Here are some of the most striking comments they report on:

“I refuse to work for this socialist city council and their political agenda. This agenda sacrifices the health and well-being of the officers and ultimately will destroy the fabric of this once fine city.”

“Current hostile work environment. In a precinct that is under civil unrest by a small group that is constantly committing multiple felonies and attempting to murder peace officers.”

“An unwinnable battle with the City Council. It will be the downfall of the city of Seattle.”

“You could pay me twice what you’re paying me now and I would not work for Seattle under this current political mayhem, Marxist collaborations and lack of government and police leadership.”

Powerful words.

The officers also pointed to the calls the defund the department as well as the refusal of the city to put rioters in jail.

Remember, these are the same officers who were expected to stand by while protesters took over a police precinct, vandalized it, and created a so-called “autonomous zone” within several city blocks which they dubbed a “no cop zone.”

Then, these officers were prevented from responding to the CHAZ/CHOP as it was officially called while crime raged.

Then blamed by the protesters for failing to respond!

How would you feel if this was how you were treated after taking an oath to serve and protect and then being made the demon of a political crusade while criminals were allowed to roam free and you got all the blame?

Our police officers deserve better. They deserve leaders who respect their commitment to public safety. Who won’t use them as scapegoats for decades of failed Democrat policy, who compare them to racists and terrorists.

  4. I hope and pray for the police officers still in Seattle but for you remaining officers please be careful and get the blue flu now this may be the one only wake up call this city will get or just let it go down the drain like all the other demonRat cities. Everyone who said let the mayor and governor do the work and city commie counsel get out their, they reap what they sow. And all you firefighters and EMT’S watch your backs also or maybe all you can get the blue flu also! A city with no civil service can be taken out with the trash that is what seetle has turned into!

  5. Every elected office holder has to swear some sort of an oath of office, to uphold the U.S. and/or state constitutions, depending on the political position in question. Every politician (and city council members are in fact politicians in elected positions) who aids and abets these Marxist anti-American hate groups are in fact violating their oaths of office. Every politician from president all the way down to your local dog catcher, has to SWEAR to fulfill their duties and to uphold the U.S. and/or state constitutions. Ditto with every police officer and with every member of the military as well. Everyone in any of those positions swears an oath that generally includes upholding the U.S. and/or state constitutions..

    So the question is, what, exactly, are the words of the oaths these city council members had to swear to? They are obviously breaking those oaths and they need to be removed from office on that basis. The fact that none of this very basic info is ever mentioned in criminally complicit U.S. corporate media speaks volumes as well.

  6. More officers should relocate to localities where they are admired for their service as first responders. The city leaders in places where police and public safety administrators are vilified may someday come to regret their invidious stance.

  7. How to introduce a government controlled police state. First take away police powers and then give criminals more rights than honest citizens. The people will revolt and demand more police protection and then you introduce your government controlled police force. Now you have a police state. This came out of a paper written in the 1960s describing how to bring this country under socialist rule and one world Government. That is just one of the steps. At the time I wrote a paper on it, I was just having fun being controversial. Looking back and seeing what is happening now, I find it hard not to believe this is what they been planning all along.

    • That reminds me of the “Duesseldorf Rules For Revolution” which was both praised and condemned but turned out to be genuine. FBI claimed that were unable to find the person who brought it back from Europe even he was living on Park Ave. until his death in the 50’s.

  8. I don’t blame them at all, in fact, I think they should all quit!! The governor and mayor are traitors to this country and should be treated as such. It’s pathetic, disgusting, and sad!!

  9. And when – not IF but WHEN – the rioters attach Council and the Mayor AT HOME then they will ask, “Where are our Police?”

  10. How can you take this kind of work when you know your brothers and sisters in the police force are being treated this way? Bet they won’t take this kind of work.

  11. Seattle can call on the whores their new Pimp police chief runs. Just goes to show, the citizens do not matter to democrats but the criminals do. Vote republican, Trump 2020.

  12. What does any of these money making schemes which are a bunch of BS ,have too do with the above article relating too the police . Take your bs somewhere else. We could care less .

    • THOSES that leave a ungrateful city’s police department for their own safety thank you for serving with Integrity and honor. Time for the remaining officers should Refuse to preform their duties and let the city council and the mayor protect the welfare of the citizens and property themselves.

  13. AS a WHOLE, there IS no RACISM from the Police Departments, and ALL that is needed is just a “tweak” or 2 for the Police Department Policies. These RADICAL LEFT politicians need to be RECALLED, in FEDERAL PRISON for SEDITION and TREASON as per the U.S. Constitution, or at LEAST voted out of OFFICE – PERMANENTLY. One Wary and DISGUSTED Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
