  1. Around 44% of homeless people were employed. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's 2008 Annual Homeless Assessment Report, the most common demographic features of all sheltered homeless people are: male, members of minority groups, older than age 31, and alone.
    Thats not a majority !!!

  2. Instead of just pointing fingers at each other, let's just agree to come together to carefully and lovingly take these people off the streets and give them a place to stay.

  3. Clearing the sweeps would shut down the Homeless Industry that exists in Seattle… They cannot tax us more if the homeless are off the streets.

  4. The plan is to reroute money to corrupt officials. Let people suffer to show they need more money to reroute more money to the corrupt officials. Funny how Dems are totally in charge, but it is someone else's fault and lay the blame elsewhere. This is what socialists have to offer to America wide scale suffering. Own it Dems. Sane people don't be fooled. Amazing same problem LA, SF, SEA. Coincidence I guess!

  5. Progressive city council members in Seattle call to defund police and bring in more low IQ Sombrero people to take low IQ Sombrero dumps everywhere.

  6. So bring in the military and crash their unconstitutional party. Arrest these tyrants and try them for their crimes. Anything less is joke to the Republicans and the American people. Do your job before the American people have to do theirs.

  7. Gee how can one live in these places when they keep jacking up property taxes on everyone? Seems to be a pattern in every Democrat run city.

  8. There is a housing crisis where I live. Too many empty houses for dirt cheap. Why do all these people want to live in huge cities where everything costs so much. Living near rich people doesn't make you any wealthier.

  9. It makes me sick how people. Are against. Helping. People get off. The street. Why don't 100 millionaires and 100 billionaire. Get together with. All the elite pastors. And. Put money together which will not be taxed if they work with. These pastors to buy land all over the main be states. To build communities. That coujd end homeless they coujd build. Facilities. And change this world forever. Think about how much land and how many communities. They coujd build. In 5 years. If they came together. But. They don't want too it's sad.

  10. Does this imbecile realize that most of the homeless are white drug addicts? This cognitive dissonance of the left is amazing.

  11. Defending your police is NEVER A GOOD IDEA !! Especially if it comes from a liberal.
    Its a black or white issue ? Pleeeease ! Its a law thing.

  12. I hope people are seeing this, liberals want people to be homeless and they will do everything they can to stop people from helping the homeless.

  13. Give all the homeless a bus ticket to California….. they love the homeless there.
    All sorts of free programs, free food, free weatherproofing, free methadone, and the police won't deal with any Homelessness.
    So send them all to California!

  14. I'd be happy if Melania trump got in the ring with kshitma sawant and gave her a proper beating. I'd pay $99.99 for pay per view. Then I'd order papa johns. It's a little soggy but i like that..

  15. Affordable housing? You can rent an apartment in Seattle for under $900 a month, and theres plenty of them available. Even a part time job could earn enough to afford that! Unless, of course, you really love DRUGS and sleeping in your own filth.

  16. This is what the liberal shitbags want for America. They want us lamed out so the Chinese can come over and take our country from us.

  17. The DNC ALWAYS brings race into any conversation- it’s a scam- race doesn’t solve anything! The Democratic’s policy’s are why we have homelessness!! Vote the DNC OUT!

  18. I hate it when refer to bad situation as experiment, If the experiment blows up lab shutdown the experiment. I live in Seattle, the problems is the construction of condo and not low income house that is where the land come from the low income housing being torn down in favor of condos. The city needs deny all new building permits for condo. Tax breaks for low income housing construction. This unemployed and homeless can be laid a the feet of the current leadership of the cities and counties that allow this to continue. Kshama Sawant is a criminal and that is why all her policies support the criminals & druggies and demonizing the Seattle Police. Kshama Sawant and others needs to impeached sent to jail for placing the city and residents of Seattle at risk. I am sure that Chief Best was to do some looking she can take down her bosses for corruption and other serious crimes.

  21. THESE LEFTY COMMUNISTS NEVER EVER REST IN STEALING FROM THOSE WHO WORK EVERYDAY …THEY ALWAYS FORGET THAT THAT IS SOMEONE ELSE'S MONEY NOT NOT NOT …THEIRS. THESE ARE VIOLENT, BLOOD THIRSTY THIEVING VERMIN. LOOK AT WHAT THEY'VE DONE TO HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS INNOCENT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD. THUGS.

  22. That lady speaker is an idiot beyond belief. The majority of homeless people are working, she says? Is she really that stupid!? "Yeah I just worked by 8 hour shift and now I'm going home to my tent on the sidewalk." Uhm, no, that's not the reality!

  23. Move the homeless to Alaska tell them they are going to live with santa at the north pole. Best thing for them really, their therapy is going nowhere and take the democratic leaders with them.

  24. I like that she brings up that black people make less money as ALL the homeless that are being filmed in the background are white. Freaking hilarious.

  25. omg what a lunatic liberal….how does a tax cut hurt the working poor or prevent the city from providing affordable housing? The answer is it doesn't. She appears to be white, so obviously she caused the problem.
    What those incompetent leftists are doing with the hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked to solve the problem was explained by a mayor of Okland, right next to SF. She said they do studies to find the best way to solve the problem. Pressed n the subject she admitted for ten YEARS they have been doing studies. so in that bay area, whatever it is, say 25 square miles and it's 3 or 4 cities involved. They have over 50,000 homeless now, and in ten years they had over a billion dollars THEY squandered. The useless, inept, incompetent community leaders who do not know how to govern a city, but every one of them are extremely richer than when they signed u to "help". How many one room units with a shower bathroom and a kitchen sink
    could they have built with just 10% of the money, $100 million? The answer is 20,000, and using just half of the money they pilfered and squandered they could have built enough family size unit buildings to house every homeless person. That idiot talks about affordable housing, they get enough funding for the homeless to build tens of thousands of housing units every year. the lunatic left are corrupt self serving swamp scum.

  28. Last week I moved out of Seattle after 20 years. It was once beautiful, now it is absolutely disgusting . It is not a housing problem it is a drug addiction problem.

  29. tax cut is responsible where all those millions goes   in someone pocket    and the one in charge   the demonrats       Seattle is also   control by demonrats

  30. We have been doing sweeps in Seattle for years and the situation hasn't improved, it's only gotten worse. The idea is to reallocate the money into other homeless services, and stop attaching services to sweeps. Unfortunately this plan fails to address root cause (mental health and addiction) and merely buckets money into another set of bandaid services.

  31. leftist psycho babble which boils down to, It's the white mans fault. Bad white man. But no solutions beyond tax the bad white man for more social justice committees and boondoggles. Meanwhile all you crazy junkies living on the street, keep up the good work comrade.

  32. I'm totally against arresting addicts and nuts. Because treatment ends there. I'm a staunch conservative but that is just dumb.

  33. There is no housing crisis in Seattle. You’re in idiot if you believe that.
    The “homeless” aren’t homeless. They’re ADDICTS. They do drugs with impunity – not joking. Thus, addicts MOVE to Seattle, do their drugs, and take shits in the sidewalk. Businesses are PISSED OFF and are moving to the east side where this isn’t tolerated.
    Seattle is dying. Literally. Look up that documentary (same name) also. It’s 100% accurate.

  34. I am from Seattle and don’t visit the city for anything besides the VA. City is full of Antifa soyboys whose biggest decision to make on a daily basis is whether to sit or stand! Far left wing commie Mayors have ruined this once beautiful town! Trump2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🤟

  35. The funny thing is they are all right and wrong at the same time but none of them really give a crap about solving anything. they are just fighting over who gets more money for themselves. It’s a monopoly and the public is the game.

  36. seattle: not as sh*tty as san francisco, but we're trying. nomiki is a liar, most homeless are addicts and/or the mentally ill, not "working families."

  37. When will they learn. Let’s make another program. Let’s give more money. This woman thinks if she talks fast she sounds smart. NOT. Get a grip you progressive communists.

  38. Race has nothing to do with anything. Big government only pays for more government. This is not a solution. All cities have ordnance’s that need to be enforced. The money for real solutions is there . The Democrats running these cities do not want solutions. They need these victims.

  39. The solution to all those homeless people without jobs is obvious. Bring in millions of uneducated, immigrants to join them on the streets. The extra people will drive up the rent on any properties actually available and lower wages through competition….that is the democratic plan right? Help the rich by keeping wages low and making sure those who own many properties can keep them rented out. A vote for Democrat is a vote for THE MAN. Go go Democrats go millionaires down with the poor, down with the homeless.

  40. the thing I have found is that most only want their drug checks and to be left alone but when they run out of their money they start to break in to cars and grab purses and other things and I thank the democant communists they waste two billion a year on this and we need infrastructor money to fix roads and bridges

  41. Typical cookie-cutter liberal, blaming income inequality, race, tax breaks for the rich. Proposing taking more money from businesses, while ignoring that most of the money being currently spent on the problem, is being wasted.

    There are multiple ironies here, that might actually provide a hint at a solution. We know that in the tradition of liberal solutions, if the wasted money actually went towards trying to solve the problem their way, the problem would get even worse. Also, most of the wasted money must be going towards government administrators, that without it would probably be homeless themselves. This suggests that maybe organizing the homeless, and funding them directly, would help them solve their own problems, while only a fraction of the funds currently being wasted, would be needed for oversight. The extra cost from the homeless administrators, should be more than compensated for by not having to pay their benefits and pensions. Just a thought.

    Now I'm wondering why stop there? Why not fire all liberal government administrators? If you can't vote them out, fire them. I'm not sure why, but that has a familiar ring to it.

  42. Here in Seattle. Years of restrictive zoning. 70% of the city is zoned single family homes. It's an artificially created housing crisis.

  43. That woman on the Seattle city council is the AOC of Seattle and hence its main problem. Housing red tape has chased off builders that simple.

  44. NYC Public Advocate Candidate – Democrat starts talking about average income for average White and Black families. LADY, THEY'RE ALL WHITE PEOPLE IN THIS VIDEO!!

  45. it's because of lack of education……….period. Here's another toxic female blaming it on race. Get a real education and prosper!
