Seattle, Washington, one of the most liberal cities in America, is having trouble deciding how to get human feces removed from their sidewalks thanks to a Democrat city councilman who claims pressure washers are racist.
King County Superior Court judges Laura Inveen and Jim Rogers recently asked the county to clean and patrol the area outside a local courthouse, but they’re being stonewalled by Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett.
“Inveen told the committee about two incidents, one in late May and one in June, in which jurors were attacked in separate incidents outside the courthouse’s Third Avenue entrance. On other occasions, Inveen said, employees have been spat upon, slammed against a wall or punched.
Although cleaning and patrolling the area immediately surrounding the courthouse would not address some of the deep-seated issues faced by denizens of the space, it would send a signal that somebody was paying attention, she said.
