The city of Portland, New York City and Chicago is embarrassing to our country. It is all taking place in Democratic socialist run cities and it is completely out of control. They can de fund the police and layoff all the police officers and let ANTIFA and BLM terrorist destroy their cities. OR LET TRUMP handle it for them. Violent protesters will be all done in one hour.

Seattle's council on Monday approved a reduction of the budget of the city's police department of less than 1%

What? Less than 1%? I thought they wanted to DEFUND the police, and was looking forward to citywide CHAZ situation. What happened on the way to dreamland?

all they accomplished was defunding the Black female police chief. First one they ever had.

Plus putting other officers, including POC, out of a job during pandemic.
