Seattle Hires Convicted Ex-Pimp For $150k To Be ‘Street Czar’

If you thought Seattle Mayo Durkan was done making horrendous decisions for her city, think again.

If you thought Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan was done making horrendous decisions for her city, think again. Durkan has hired Andrew Taylor as Seattle’s new “street czar” to “provide recommendations to the City on de-escalation, community engagement, and alternatives to policing.” Taylor’s organization Not This Time will reportedly be receiving $12,500 a month, in addition to an office in Seattle’s municipal Tower.

Taylor first moved to Seattle in 2016 after his brother was killed during a shooting involving the police. The Seattle Times quoted Taylor as saying he was “here to go to war.” Of course, Durkan hired someone with a years-long vendetta against the police to aid in “de-escalation.”

Taylor was highly active in the Seattle rallies and protests after the death of George Floyd, and “was later accused of trying to get millions from the city for militants who set up the controversial police-free Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone” according to the Seattle Times.

Taylor was quoted as advising activists, “Don’t just leave. Leave with something” as he was leading a demand of $2 million to vacate the downtown site. In a surprising twist, his fellow CHOP militants accused him of betrayal when he “appeared at a press conference with the mayor to tell them to shut down CHOP” get this, “the same day he was given his six-figure contract.”

As for his new role, Taylor said, “A street czar is a person who has a particular genius in a particular area. I know the term ‘street czar’ is quite provocative.” He himself devised the title in admiration of President Obama’s practice of designating ‘czars’ for roles while he was in the White House. “This should be a prominent position because it could help quell some of the incidents that are going on between community and cities” said Taylor.

Taylor’s “principled” past goes much further. In 2000, Taylor was sentenced to five years in prison in Las Vegas but only served just over a year for being a pimp; some of his girls were underage. Taylor’s story became the topic for the documentary “American Pimp” about his life as “Gorgeous Dre.”

“I was born from the streets; I come out of the deep darkness,” said Taylor in a YouTube video earlier this year. He bragged about having “had children with some of the women who were with me.” “We decided we were going to be in this subculture, like the Mafia, whether you liked it or not…We knew you considered us the waste of the world from the beginning. We didn’t care what you thought about us…just like I don’t care what you think about me now” he said on video.

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
