    Well, Tampa is not in Pasco County so he has that going for him.

    Obviously abuse of power.

    That being said, if yiu eliminate fear of police crime dvances. I saw it whne I stared out in rough neighborhoods in Hartford in the erly 70s.

    Here in Seattle the progressive city council has pretty much hamstrung police. Many resignatioms. Police phusycal rersponses are now very constrained.

    The result, increasing violence and blatant open gun battles.

    I live in what was once a pretty good neighborhood. My building was hit in a drive by shooting last year narrowly mssing a resident.

    Over the weekend I called 911 after hearing about 30 shots near my building.

    Criminals do risk reward analysis.

    Recently a non profit bailed out someone in jail for murder. He got out and murdered someone.

    Fear works, it will be a matter of how bad it gets before people rebel.

    Over the past year and a half, it really seems like the Pacific Northwet has lost its collective mind.

    All hyperbole aside, yes.

    Yesterday a shooting south of Seattle. Bystanders reported a man in black running away. Police arrived quickly but under the new state laws they did not have probable cause to use dogs to try and track the person.

    I've got friends near Seattle and Portland. I moved away three years ago. The things they say about the overall feel of the place is a bit disturbing. They're all pretty seriously liberal, but my besties won't go downtown any more, not unless they've got no other choice. And I've had several friends who just up and left WA and OR last year because of the strange shifts. My uncle lived just outside Portland, and he passed up a major promotion and moved back to Arkansas as a black man, because the "ACAB" crowd was just out of hand.

    If this were rewritten as to be happening in the UK no one here would bat an eye.
