Seattle Police Officers Quitting in Droves

Posted by Jack



SEATTLE — Seattle Police officers who are leaving the department have given scathing responses during their exit interviews.

KOMO News obtained the exit interviews, which blamed city leadership, to riots and low morale for leaving the department.

One retiring patrol sergeant who had been on the force for more than 20 years said, “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.”

When asked: “What factors had a negative effect on morale in the department?”

One 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.”

Jim Fuda, Crimestoppers Director of Law Enforcement Services which works with SPD,  says the responses point to a hostile and non-supportive work environment for officers.

“It’s ridiculous,” Fuda said. “Just when you think it can’t get more inane, it does.”

In response to the question: “Would you like to work for SPD again in the future?”

Some said they’re open to the opportunity if things change, “drastically.”

One canine officer who’s resigning after more than 11 years 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,” said 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?”

According to the exit interviews, some of the SPD officers are leaving for departments like Everett, Des Moines, Kennewick and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department — places they said they feel like they will get more support.

    And if not for the most recent election results in Chico, where the community had enough of the progressive socialist style of the city council and booted them out, you might well be saying the same about Chico PD

    • Pie Guevara says:

      This last Chico election was definitely a message to the progressive socialist twits who once controlled the council that the citizens are fed up with their leftist, lunatic crap including the completely asinine attitudes of several former council members towards the Chico PD. The election was a re-affirmation of Chicoans’ desire for effective law and order and a rejection of progressive folly.

      Pie Guevara is an unregistered trademark of David Walton. So there!

    Other cities can take advantage of trained officers leaving Seattle.
    Not much sympathy for Seattle residents, ’cause they’re getting exactly what they voted for in their city council!

    Lin Wood at the GA press conference yesterday said that Trump even won in Calif. with more than 400 EC votes. Think it’s possible? Will we ever know?

    “Tactical Loitering”

    by John Farnam | 5:23 pm

    30 Nov 20 Wave of the Future! Earlier this month in south FL (Broward County, which includes the Miami metro area), a disabled senior citizen (disabled from childhood by polio) frantically called the BCSO to report that a man was breaking into his home. The suspect (unknown to the resident) was pounding on the resident’s locked door, eventually slamming his body into it, breaking the glass. Eighteen BCSO deputies were dispatched and arrived at the scene within minutes, but did not approach the house where the felony was happening! Minutes passed with no action on the part of deputies who remained some distance away, despite the fact that the disabled resident was in obvious grave danger and had informed the 911 Operator multiple times that he was scared to death, armed, and might have to shoot when the door gave way. More minutes passed with no action on the part of deputies, who has long-since arrived! Over the phone, the 911 operator can hear glass breaking. Still, no action on the part of deputies! A neighbor steps out of his house, sees what is happening, also calls 911 and yells at the suspect to go away. The suspect walks over to the next house! That neighbor and others are now flooding 911 lines reporting the attempted home invasion(s), joining with the affected resident’s desperate call. Still, deputies are nowhere to be seen, much less do anything! Eventually, the suspect walks over to several uniformed deputies he could see and is taken into custody without further incident. He is already out of bail! Not surprisingly, the SO has refused to answer all questions about this incident and has put-out the usual, tired boiler-plate: “The Sheriff’s Office constantly reviews and assesses its responses to emergency calls in order to provide the highest level of service to the public… blah, blah, blah” Welcome to our “New Era of Policing,” brought to you by liberal/Marxist politicians! Individual police officers know and understand that they are the continual target of liberal prosecutors and judges, who want police de-funded, and who just can’t wait to throw them in jail. They know and understand that shooting a violent felon, even when completely justified, is an automatic career-ender! They know and understand that confronting any violent suspect will not have a happy ending, and that whatever physical action they take to protect themselves and innocent citizens will be denigrated, criticized, picked-apart, and will result in demotion, probably termination, plus criminal (and civil) charges against them. They’ll probably be unemployed and bankrupted, likely find themselves in prison. They know and understand that liberal sheriffs, police chiefs, mayors, governors will not stand behind them, will not defend them, but will casually throw them to the wolves, while themselves cynically marching right along beside violent rioters! Many LEOs are thus departing the profession in disgust, and fear! In the interim, can you really blame the few who remain for indecisive “tactical loitering,” as my friend and esteemed colleague, Ron Borsch, fondly calls it? Neighbors, some of whom are professing liberals, in the foregoing episode are shocked, indignant, disgusted, and fearful. Well they, and residents of other Democrat-controlled areas, had better get used to this “new normal!” Liberals need to be careful what they wish for! In Broward County, their wish has been granted!

      Tactical loitering? Oh, geez, that’s terrible – I couldn’t do it. If I were a cop I would have to resign and do something else before I would obey orders to let lives be endangered.
