Shocker: Small number of criminals ‘caused more than 2,400 crimes’ in Seattle

Underscoring the city of Seattle’s increasingly bad reputation as a crime center of the Pacific Northwest, KOMO News—the local ABC affiliate—has reported, “Less than 120 people have caused more than 2,400 criminal cases throughout Seattle in five years.”

The report, by KOMO’s Tammy Mutasa, said the City Attorney’s office is now teaming up with the King County Prosecutor’s Office “to aggregate cases as felonies, and Seattle Police has the list of offenders at each of their five precincts.”

Beleaguered business people and residents who often say on social media that Seattle is “not the city I grew up in,” are expressing “cautious optimism.”

Three years ago, KOMO’s Eric Johnson produced and narrated an epic criticism of the city titled “Seattle Is Dying.” It was blasted by the city’s far left politicians, but a large segment of the population warmed right up to the hour-long (without commercial breaks) report, which ripped city policies and the decay of what was once considered one of the tourist destinations on the West Coast and jumping-off place for western Canada and Alaska. The city has attracted new residents from across the globe, while lifelong residents have watched in despair as decades of liberal rule have turned the city into a magnet for drunks, drug addicts, and what some people have called the “professional homeless.”

In 2020, Seattle saw its city police force begin shrinking in the “Defund Police” movement, while former Mayor Jenny Durkan, responding to questions about violent demonstrations and the takeover of six blocks of the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, predicted the city would experience a “summer of love.” Instead, homicides went up dramatically.

According to the KOMO report, the “prolific offenders” have been identified through what the city is calling the High Utilizer Initiative.

There’s a new city attorney—Ann Davison—who came into office with a new attitude,

“It was long overdue,” Davison told KOMO this week. “It has to have the accountability put back into it and that’s what we’re focusing on. Because it is in that piece that we raise the standards for individuals and say, ‘it does matter what you do, and we do care what you do.’”

Among the charges referred to the city attorney’s office are theft (1,019 charges), trespassing (589 charges), assault (409 charges), or weapons violations (101 charges), according to the KOMO report.

Under previous administrations, repeat offenders often seemed to get little more than a slap on the wrist.

Something needs to happen, since one major company recently moved 1,800 of its employees out of the downtown area because of a crime surge.
