    And she retired. She didn't quit, like all of the news headlines are saying.

    I clicked on this because I read "quilt" instead of "quit". Mine would have been a more interesting story.

    I give her credit for staying as long as she did. But if your own city doesn't have your back, I don't see the point.

    Seattle City Council approves plan to defund police department, slashes jobs and salaries

    Not really - they did cut 100 out of 1400 jobs and "defunded" the police by less than one percent but they were going to slash Chief Best's salary so she hightailed it out of there:

    Hard to blame her. How much money is enough, when your government throws you under the bus. I really don't know how those officers are hanging in there.

    If you listen to these council members, you will immediately recognize how radically socialist-marxist they are. There is one extreme member and her people did re-elect her recently, so they are getting what they voted for. Votes have consequences as does not voting. Some people win on the slimmest of margins like less than 10 votes. If you really cared, you would make sure to get out there and vote.
