-Bring on the 2nd amendment [police cannot protect business owners in Seattle]

The Seattle police chief informs business owners that they are on their own against rioters. The city council has tied her hands. The police do not have the tools to combat mob violence . So who will protect against mob violence?   

The letter is a wonder to behold — a first for civil society in a modern industrialized country. Law enforcement telling the people they are sworn to protect that government won’t let them do their jobs and that any damage done to the business owners’ property isn’t the fault of the police.

Please also know that the City Council Ordinance 119805 Crowd Control Tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26, 2020. This ordinance bans Seattle Police officers the use of less lethal tools, including pepper spray that is commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent. Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.

It is important to bring to your attention that yesterday, I sent the City Council a letter ensuring them that as the Chief of Police, I have done my due diligence of informing them numerous times of the foreseeable impact of this ordinance on upcoming events. The letter is attached for your reference.

For these reasons, Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend – as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way.

Over kill reaction to corona virus? 40 have died …half from one facility

Overkill reactions n to the corona virus?   Are you hoarding toilet paper?  Hiding toilet paper in your safe?  Come on now ….

Roughly  40 persons in the  USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.

The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus  are older  persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.

One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone  will die from the virus.  Based on what facts?  That’s an overkill reaction.

What does  make  sense to do:

  1.   regularly and frequently  wipe down using disinfectant wipes those   surfaces people frequently touch  (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
  2.  regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
  3. practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
  4. stay home when  sick or think you are getting sick

The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy.   One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes.  For example,  Clorox wipes are  made by a CA company  with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble.  So — why not  invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean?  The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.
