‘I Refuse To Work For This Socialist City Council’: Seattle Cops Go Scorched Earth In Exit Interviews

Seattle Police officers leaving the department after a summer of chaos are lashing out at city leadership in their exit interviews, according to KOMO  news.

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,” said one retiring patrol sergeant who had been with the force for over 20 years.

Another officer whose job is ‘up in the air’ said “The council wanting to defund us and gaining ground doing it. Rioters not being charged even when they assault officers.

Another patrol officer from the East Precinct who was resigning after 6-10 years of service offered this explanation for leaving the department: “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.”

When followed up with the question: “What did you enjoy least about working at SPD?”

The officer said, “I enjoyed almost every aspect of working with Seattle PD itself. The one thing that I enjoyed the least was the handling of the last three months of riots.” –KOMO  news

“It’s ridiculous” said Crimestoppers Director of Law Enforcement, Jim Fuda, who works with SPD. “Just when you think it can’t get more inane, it does.”

When outgoing officers were asked “Would you like to work for SPD again in the future?” some said they would, but only if things change “drastically.”

Another officer said “I highly doubt it. 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.”

“It’s an absolute joke and a travesty for the rest of the citizens here in this city, this once beautiful city,” according to Fuda. “Our police department is there to protect all of us and because of the cutbacks and the retirements, who’s going to protect our public safety?”

In July we reported on a mass exodus of police officers from the Seattle PD.

Seattle Police Officer’s Guild VP Rich O’Neill told Q13 FOX that local officials “are allowing certain crimes to go on without accountability.”

“Worker bees on the street, they don’t feel appreciated. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” another source within the Seattle PD told Q13 Fox.

And in August, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best announced her resignation after the City Council crippled her ability to respond to rioters by banning tear gas, pepper spray and flash bangs. She was also excluded from meetings regarding budget cuts.
