Karma, Irony? :Seattle politician who defunded the police called 911 to protect her from a crime she wants to legalize

A Seattle City Council Member who was at the forefront of the effort to defund the Seattle Police Department, called 911 Friday night for a crime that she is pushing to legalize.

As first reported by police sources to the neighborhood safety group Safe Seattle, Council Member Lisa Herbold called 911 and requested the police for criminal damage done to her home, a crime that the council member is pushing to legalize.

Allegedly a man threw a rock through Herbold’s window. In a redacted police report, Herbold told responding officers that she "was on the west side of the living room near the kitchen when she heard a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot and dove into the kitchen for cover."

A witness said he saw an "…unathletic and a bad runner" leaving the scene. The suspect was described as a clean shaven, white male in a black hoodie and jeans. The witnesses told officers that he would recognize the suspect if he saw him again, but declined the officer’s business card to contact him for follow up. Ironically, Herbold is pushing for legislation that would make the alleged crime legal.

In October, Herbold, chair of the Seattle City Council's Public Safety Committee, introduced legislation to "…excuse and dismiss" almost all misdemeanor crimes committed in Seattle by "…persons with symptoms of addiction or mental disorder." At the time, Herbold was criticized for trying to sneak the legislation in as part of the budget cycle rather than through the normal legislative process and with no public discussion about the proposal.

White Privilege White privilege.

Compromise. Police only enforce laws for those who don't want them defunded. The rest of the morons gets all the crime they could hope for with no police response.

Bonus: Police escort those doing the crime against these idiots to safety after the enrichment process has ended.

I swear, to me it keeps sounding like the Seattle City Council is made up of some of the most selfish and evil fuckers alive. I just posted a thread last night about that documentary from Seattle and how they have purposefully fucked things up for good people, while letting criminals run rampant.

I guess of course the exception is when they themselves are on the receiving end. But seriously, this utter transparent hypocrisy should make them primed for getting run out with pitchforks.

Attention NeoGaf members who are not familiar with different states and are from other countries. This is the kind of shit that is being imported into Red States due to the exodus of people from these areas, whom also bring their bad voting habits with them.

Some members here applaud their Red State going Blue with no self-reflection of why people are fleeing places like Washington, Oregon, California, New York and Illinois.

If the 'headline' is an accurate summary of the situaion, it's hard for me to understand the continued functioning of such a person. The cognitive dissonance would just be immobilizing to me. I would have to become completely cynical in order to act at all

Wasn't it the case the the CHAZ was only acted upon after the Mayor herself got targeted one night? Prior to that she was all sunshine and roses with the "Summer of Love" thingy after all.
Ya. Some politician in NY was stonewalling taking action at rioters lighting firecrackers all night during the summer. People were kept up for I think 2-3 weeks.

So a slew of motorist organized and blasted their car horns all night to counter-protest the protesters outside the politicians condo. There's videos. Cars lined up down the street all night taking turns driving by and horning.

Then within the next few days that asshole passed a law about no firecrackers. Total jackass.

Just tell her to get a gun and that she can do it herself. Police can say that no resources are left for such minor crimes.

Pure mental illness. If I was in charge my first action I would take is to put all the mentally ill people in facilities where they can get the help they desperately need. They can rejoin society when they have come to grips with reality.

That’s the ultimate sign of privileged right there. Not a worry in the world, unless it comes a knocking.

Then again, they might flagellate themselves and absolve the criminal and their deeds.

He disagrees with a few people and now he's the most popular poster on PoliGAF.
I've called him out, previously, on saying he wanted to move to the UK or Canada, but not Mexico or any other non-anglophonic empire country, which also provided the fun realization that he stated he has NOT traveled outside of the United States.

What is amazing is that the warnings are being realized in real time with regards to leftist regressive policies, yet we have people who live in a Red state wishing to have it go Blue because they don't like conservatives.

It could be anybody, but Nobody Important is the easy mark because he is an easy work. It's not becuause he disagrees, it is because he is not worldly or wise when he pines for his locale to be upended with the same terrible policies that are making famously Blue states end up in dire straits.

I love the description of the culprit, if that isn't an Antifa Soy Soldier I don't know what is.

A witness said he saw an "…unathletic and a bad runner" leaving the scene. The suspect was described as a clean shaven, white male in a black hoodie and jeans.

Sorry just to be clear... she wants to legalize property damage? Or are they saying that ‘defund the police’ means ‘legalize all crime’?

Let them have it. The easiest way to cure the woke is to give them what they truly believe they desire.
The problem with this is how affects everyone.

I have a family.
A lot of people have families which will be impacted or even hurt by this sheer fucking madness.

People like her will never suffer the consequences of their own choices because they have money. She want's to defund the police. And then she'll hire private security for her house. She had to because ya'll were attacking her.

Basically they want to legalize misdemeanors. So what some would call "petty" crimes like trespassing, vandalism, car jacking etc... you wouldn't get prosuctued for those crimes.

You... can't make up shit like this. Whoever said reality is stranger than fiction was more prescient than anyone.
