Seattle's public transit has become "unusable" due to clouds of meth and fentanyl, so I'd say things are going well

Feb 15th

I bet the leaders of CHAZ would have solved this problem!

Seattle's transit system has become unusable after reports of toxic fentanyl and meth smoke, volatile behavior and dangerous work environments, which has scared off travelers, local authorities said, The Seattle Times reported Monday.

Sounds like the woke utopia is doing well!

King County Metro Transit workers filed 398 security incident reports regarding drug use in 2021, compared to 73 in 2020 and just 44 in 2019, according to the Times. Amalgamated Transit Union Local 587, representing over 4,000 King County Metro Transit workers, said the public transportation system needs stronger enforcement to remove the growing numbers of drug users.

Active duty cops have been punched, spat and threatened while also dealing with surging drug smoke from fentanyl and meth, the Times reported. Narcotic smoking surged last summer, surpassing needles and marijuana complaints.

How bad are the clouds of meth/fentanyl on buses and trains?

Since the summer of 2021, over six operators had to stop driving mid-shift, while 14 reported headaches, dizziness or irritated breathing...

"It smells like burnt peanut butter, mixed with brake fluid," King County Metro Transit operator Erik Christensen told the Times.

The city plans to deal with this surge in violence and second-hand meth smoke by reinforcing its gutted police department and cracking down on crime.

Haha! That was a fun joke, wasn't it??

Nope, they're gonna try to solve the problem by compiling surveys, continuing to ignore crime, and pushing slogans to make the public transport department an "anti-racist mobility agency."

Maybe they'll even get some of those federal crack pipes from Biden!!

Unarmed Securitas monitor the metro and have zero authority to arrest or remove people from public transportation, the Times reported. Seattle police officers do not regularly patrol the transit vehicles and illegal drug use is considered a "lower priority than violent crime," Seattle Police Detective Patrick Michaud told the Seattle Times.

In the meantime, the law-abiding citizens of Seattle have the privilege of giving up their hard-earned money so methheads can get free bus rides.

Seattle residents pay the country's highest transit tax, spending roughly $1,200 yearly per capita.

The citizens also have the knowledge that crime might be surging, but at least the city is being "compassionate" to criminals!

Crime has surged in Seattle recently, with shootings increasing 46% in 2020, according to an annual report by the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. A massive gunfight erupted on Feb. 7 in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood with over 40 gunshots reported.

If only the leaders of CHAZ/CHOP were here to save us!
