What do you expect if a city is being run by a liberal leadership? Chaos and wave of violent crimes.

Will, Seattle proves everything what a liberal leadership can do over time. Where violent thugs replace the street at night, and shooting random people is just part of their norm.

In fact, what Amazon did just proves everything about Seattle and its leaders.

Amazon briefly eradicating workers from a downtown Seattle office so staff doesn’t need to journey to an area that’s seen a spate of shootings, carjackings, and different violent crimes.

There are currently 1,800 employees that work at the Amazon office. However, it is currently unclear how many are being relocated as many have continued to work remotely since the start of the pandemic two years ago.

The spike in the city’s violent crime hit a new peak on March 2, when 15-year-old Michael del Bianco was shot and killed at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pike Street, which is where Amazon’s office building is located.

A spokesperson for Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell claims that the mayor is making public safety a priority:

“Mayor Harrell will continue to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety in collaboration with police and safety advocates, community members, service providers, and businesses, including Amazon, to activate, revitalize, and restore downtown for all.”

The Seattle Times report gives us more details of the story:

Amazon.com is temporarily removing workers from a downtown Seattle office so employees don’t have to travel to an area that’s seen a spate of shootings, carjackings and other violent crimes.

“Given recent incidents near Third and Pine, we’re providing employees currently at that location with alternative office space elsewhere,” an Amazon spokesman said in an emailed statement. “We are hopeful that conditions will improve and that we will be able to bring employees back to this location when it is safe to do so.”

Here’s what the area near the Seattle Amazon office looked like on Friday night:

Business Insider also reported violent crimes in the area:

According to information from the Seattle Police Department’s Twitter account, there have been at least three shootings, two stabbings, and one carjacking in the area since February 21.

“Mayor Harrell will continue to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety in collaboration with police and safety advocates, community members, service providers, and businesses, including Amazon, to activate, revitalize, and restore downtown for all,” a spokesperson for Mayor Bruce Harrell told KOMO News in a statement.

Insider’s Katherine Long recently reported that the Amazon workers behind the first union push have sent a list of demands, including higher wages and a more flexible attendance policy.
