Across the nation, cities are seeing an unprecedented spike in crime.
This is especially true in blue cities run by radical Democrats who in recent years gutted police departments across the nation in the name of “social justice.”
But things have gotten so bad in this American city that thieves are literally tearing the place apart.
When you think of violent leftist cities, one city that immediately comes to mind is Seattle.
During the riots of 2020, Seattle became a focal point due to their extreme rioting and violence.
In fact, Seattle was one of several cities that established lawless “autonomous zones.”
The point is, Seattle is not a place you want to stay in for too long.
But just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for this leftist hellhole, criminals found a way to profit (even more) from the city itself.
Just the other day, local Seattle news outlets reported that thieves were caught on camera stealing copper wire from power boxes on the side of the road.
This caused at least one major exit ramp to be completely shut down.
But these thieves did not just stop at the copper wire.
Dozens of reports have been filed claiming that thieves have also stolen street signs, and other forms of metal that exist in public spaces.
These thefts are estimated to cost taxpayers millions.
Of course Washington, D.C. spends that amount of money in a heartbeat, but it is always infuriating to see taxpayer money being thrown away like that.
These sorts of crimes have spiked significantly since the riots of 2020.
The extreme rise in cost of materials, such as copper and steel also contribute to the spike in these crimes.
Oddly enough, many residents of Seattle do not seem too concerned.
Crime is nothing new in Seattle, but thieves literally tearing the city apart?
This is quite literally the collapse of civilization.
These thieves are cashing out on expensive publicly paid items and nobody in the state or Seattle area seem ready to do anything about it.
If Seattle hopes to continue to even exist, something needs to be done about this.
A society simply cannot exist in an atmosphere of lawlessness.
As long as people are willing to turn a blind eye to crime like this, it will only continue to get worse.
