    In today's episode of "Yes, They're That Stupid"

    Seattle Councilman: Cleaning Poop Off Sidewalks Is Racist

    A Seattle, Wash., councilman implied that a new effort to clean excrement off the side walk outside the local courthouse could be racist Tuesday.

    The crime and smell of urine and excrement have gotten so bad outside a King County courthouse that two judges are scrambling to find ways to fix the situation, reports the Seattle Times.

    King County councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.

    The area around the courthouse is surrounded by a homeless shelter and other social service organizations. Multiple assaults, harassment and drugs have been reported to the police in the area near the courthouse. Jurors have taken to asking judges to release them from jury duty and two jurors have been assaulted over the past two months.

    “When they come to this courthouse they’re afraid to come in,” said King County Sheriff John Urquhart. “They’re afraid to walk down Third Avenue because what they see.”

    Urquhart is asking for an $8,000 increase in budget from the King County Council to have deputies patrol the street. “There is public urination, defecation. That’s a crime,” Urquhart said. “There is smoking marijuana in public.”

    There ya go! Don't use the cheap method because somebody might get their feelings hurt after being told why their feelings should be hurt. No, spend even more taxpayer money to start a new Doody Patrol unit.

    8 grand isn't going to do it. They'll need regular patrols. Meaning someplace else will have less security (might I suggest that they come from the areas where the council people live?) or more cops. Moving a few around might work for a little while. But only until more crime shows up in those areas, slower responses to emergency calls start, etc. Then it will be more cops. More cops means at least 6 (2 as a team, 2 shifts, rotate time off using the third shift and that barely does it) and probably no less than 8, at least one car (probably 2), etc. Multiply the base budget by at least 8. Per month. Plus the car(s), electronics to go into the car(s), cost of installing the electronics in the car(s), cost of maintaining, upgrading, repairing and troubleshooting the electronics, etc.


    A few bucks in water and the manpower to blow it away would be a couple of hundred a month.

    Enforcement still needs to be done, but enforcement alone won't so it without heavy expenses in the short term, and maybe the long term.

    But, hey, I'm not a virtue-signaling council member in a hard-left city.
