Someone on social media called it a “hopeless” title.
The producer I’ll wrestled with the name for some time. Too dramatic, he wondered? Too dark? In the end he went with it because he believes it is true that Seattle is dying. Rotting from within.
This is the third of a trilogy and knowing that gives background to the video and helps to place it. The first one was on homelessness and was called “”There But For the Grace of God…”
The second was about the hellish existence of heroin addiction and called Demon at the Door.
This one is about everyone else.It’s about citizens who don’t feel safe taking their families into downtown Seattle. It’s about parents who won’t take their children into the public parks they pay for. It’s about filth and degradation all around them. And theft and crime. It’s about people who don’t feel protected anymore, who don’t feel like their voices are being heard.
The program is not about demonizing those who are struggling with addiction and homelessness and mental illness. But a bit more.
If the producer had got it wrong — bad info; distorted portrayals of people, places and events; out-of-context interviews — Seattle’s political establishment would have pounced on him. After all, it revealed an out-of-touch mayor, a clueless Council member Mike O’Brien, and an totally stupid City Attorney Pete Holmes appearing impervious to any connection between the proliferation of property and other drug-related crimes and refusing to prosecute the same.
If you want to see a city being killed by Political Correctness you would go to Seattle, if you want to see more cities just travel the
east west coast of the US. A whole swath of Obama loving, sex and shit in the street tolerating, sanctuary cities for illegals on the run, covers the east coast. All Democrat, all crazy, and all PC.
The world and his wife knows the festering filthy crime-spotted city of San Fran Freakshow, Seattle is worse!
It can easily happen here. In Nowra, homeless stream in from Sydney, get a free tent and just camp where they like, no doubt drawing the dole and housing allowance.
