Seattle‘s concept of supporting the Black Lives Matter movement includes laying off Black policeman and pushing the city’s Black authorities chief to resign, radio host Jason Rantz told Fox News Radio’s “ Person Benson Show” Thursday.
” Invite to Seattle, where Black Lives Matter suggests firing all of these Black officers and then running out the Black female authorities chief in a position that is typically controlled by White men,” he said.
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Finest revealed her resignation Tuesday stating she “can’t do it” any longer and admitting, “I’m done.”
” The [city] council gave us $1.6 million to ensure we work with the best and the brightest and the most varied and brought them on,” Best stated. “And less than a year later on, we’re going to just turn them all away. It feels extremely duplicitous. I have my convictions. I can not do that.”

The Seattle City Council decided to reallocate the department’s spending plan to fund neighborhood programs in an effort to deal with violence, a relocation Rantz stated will probably not enhance anything.
” They’re neighborhood organizations that supposedly this time around … they’re in fact going to deal with some of the underlying causes of the violence and the criminal offense that we have actually seen,” he said. “They immediately assume that by just cutting all of these officers and instantly putting cash into these programs that we’re visiting instant outcomes. Which, obviously, we understand that that’s not going to take place.”
Among those organizations victimized by the reallocation, Rantz stated, was Seattle’s Navigation Group, which clears up homeless encampments from the streets.
” So since we really tidy up these places, where we don’t allow individuals to reside in their own dirt, surrounded by not simply human waste but used needles, that’s apparently inhumane to this council,” he stated. “Not just do we get to see an increase in homelessness … however we’ll see an increase in all of the criminal activity that’s very plainly connected with it.”
