Seattle Councilman objects to hosing off poop covered sidewalks due to racism

Seattle Councilman Objects to Hosing Excrement-Covered Sidewalks Because It’s Racist

"Councilmember Larry Gossett objected to the idea of power-washing the sidewalks in the troubled area because it brings back the images of police using hoses against civil-rights activists."

I can't be the only one who finds this utterly ridiculous, right? Though kinda amusing lol.

The link is heat street, but the Seattle Times as well for those that don't like the other source:

Every time I lower the bar of what to expect from these ideologues they manage to keep hitting beneath it.

It's possible the Seattle Times just really has it out for him.

I truly hope this paper decided Larry needed a lesson taught to him and just made this up. Don't know why they are beefing or what lesson he needed to learn, but I'd prefer it over this idiocy.

I'd say the city should decide not to use the hoses. Just get some rags, give them to Larry, point him to the sidewalks, and say "earn your next paycheck".

Just make sure the rags aren't white so he doesn't think it's a demonstration of white power.

Well this story probably won't fill you with joy:

Four ‘permanent’ rainbow crosswalks in city’s gay neighborhood cost taxpayers nearly $200,000

On one hand, it's less than 1% of the budget that was spent. On the other hand I feel it's valid for folks to be wondering if this 200 grand could have been better spent on something else.

If you really want to be cute, here, you could say that the councilman is racist because he's comparing civil rights activists to pieces of poo.

You can wash away the poop, but you can never wash away the freedom.

Ooh nice is this the new SJW crazy bullshit thread?

Also that's a horrible waste of taxpayer money, and so is paying for police officers to be indoctrinated.

Its a little disturbing when cities like Seattle and more notably SF and interactive map that tracks human feces because these cities now allow public urination and dumping.

*Sigh*

Pretty much how our legal system works, unfortunately. Guy complains/sues, city overreacts to cover their asses.

Because if they don't, there could be a payout in the future. You ain't winning no money in a lawsuit from this city, I'm stealing that money for a new house.

Indeed, and why would we even train our police officers to indulge the mentally ill? Seems yet another task they have. They need to be: cops, psychiatrists, marriage counselors, utter experts of body language, masters of hand to hand combat, and telepathic. What else do cops need to be?

If that was all that training consisted of, I would be fine with that, aside from the fact that it can be adequately addressed in a conversation, perhaps a lengthy announcement from a superior, so the usage of taxpayer money for this training isn't the best use of money. But again if that was all I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Given how these training courses usually go, they're probably going to be indoctrinated into bullshit like "gender is completely disconnected from sex" "there's more than two genders and you can be agender, genderfluid, gender neutrois" and all that other made up bullshit as well as the use of fake pronouns like Xe, Zir, Zim, etc. this ideological horseshit should not be imposed on our society with taxpayer money.

Pretty pathetic that you think you can guilt me out of my position by implicating me in collective guilt for something not even said by me.
