Amazon relocating employees from Seattle office after violent crime surge


Recommended Posts

NY Post

Amazon is temporarily relocating employees from the company’s downtown Seattle office after an uptick of violent crime rocked the area.

Roughly 1,800 employees are assigned to the office space on Third Avenue and Pine Street in the heart of the city, but many of the employees are still working remotely, Amazon said in a statement to KOMO News.

“Given recent incidents near 3rd (Ave) and Pine (St), we’re providing employees currently at that location with alternative office space elsewhere,” an Amazon spokesman said in an emailed statement to the outlet.

“We are hopeful that conditions will improve and that we will be able to bring employees back to this location when it is safe to do so.”

Recent violent crimes in the area include the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy on March 2. The shooter is still at large as of Monday, cops said.:snip:

Put a Fork in Seattle

When Detroiters are laughing at your city, you know you’ve made a mistake.


I grew up in the Motor City and I have no sympathy for what used to be Seattle. Detroit’s death was drawn out over years and involved a perfect storm of nonsense, including foolish decisions by auto execs, stupid import/export laws, and a corrupt mayor named Coleman A. Young. Detroit languished. Seattle was executed.

Hundreds of local Seattle businesses are leaving, and Seattle residents have no one to blame except  voters and the communists they’ve elected.

FACT-O-RAMA! Commies do not make things better, ever. You can’t point to a pinko success story. Don’t pretend Seattle voters had no idea what was going to happen. They killed a once-great city. They need to own it and tell their kids what they did to their home town.

July 7, 2020–11 Weeks Into the “Pandemic” and Six Weeks into the George Floyd Riots

The City Council of Seattle, like the obedient commies they are, voted to tax businesses even more than usual. This was at a time when businesses were struggling from COVID-19 lockdowns and BLM and their spinster sisters in Antifa were gutting the city. The “CHOP” or “CHAZ” commie central zone had been established for one month.  A $1 billion business owner described both San Francisco and Seattle as “some of the worst places to raise a family, practice a faith, or even think freely. This hurts my team and the business.” He moved his company to Texas.

Soon to be humiliated CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo asked Seattle’s Marxist mayor, Jenny Durkan, how long the commie occupation would last. Her response was to call the occupation a “Summer of Love.”:snip:

Seattle is a little like the University of Colorado.  CU wanted to be like UC Berkeley, but instead of getting the academic excellence, they only managed the whacky leftism.

Seattle is following the same path in its attempt to be San Francisco - surrendering quality of life and prosperity for virtue signaling and wokeness.
