The letter mentions the wrong number. The city bill was 119805. After the City Council approved it, it became Ord 126102

The ordinance number is incorrect– I have the link.
The effective date is incorrect — I have the link.
I don’t believe the letter is authentic.
Will try re-posting the links.

Several years ago, we did several videos from various Swedish police departments where they stated the same thing, except they did not blame the government policy of mass Islamic and African immigration, but did say that women are no longer safe on the streets especially in groups, and that the police could no longer protect them. This is not a coincidence. This is the result of well planned policies by international leftist groups properly called, the COMINTERN.

2015: Swedish police force admit they can no longer protect women, offer advice on how women can prevent gang rape by giving up freedom of mobility.

    • Since the 1960s the State Governments and the Federal Government have been putting more and more restrictions on when lethal force can be used by the Police. The legislators, activist Judges and an activist media have made it almost impossible for a Police Officer to use lethal force), Look at the Atlanta Shooting, that was a use of lethal force that was clearly justified but the officers are facing a long prison sentence because of an activist Prosecutor. With both lethal and non lethal force taken away from the police they are forced to stop doing what they are hired to do.

      Look at the couple in St. Louis who displayed firearms to protect their house, they are facing prison time because they acted in their own defense.

  1. bogus letter?

  3. Remember the goal here is a communist revolution, the more they hamper the police and leave hte public unprotected the more the chaos will spread and the better headlines for the Propaganda Media. All of these actions have to be taken as discrete parts of a larger plan, when looking at and analyzing the actions keep the goal in minds and it makes sense. Twisting nasty and evil sense but it makes sense.

  4. refreshed my screen and now can see the comments

    Less Lethal Weapons Usage in Protests
    page 5, line 20 of the ordinance: Section 5. This ordinance shall take effect and be in force 30 days after its approval by the Mayor,
    page 6 – the city council approves it on 15 June; mayor doesn’t sign it; city clerk files it on 26 June.
    25 July is 30 days after the filing date — but you need to look at https://library.municode.com/wa/seattle/codes/municipal_code?nodeId=TIT1GEPR_CH1.04GEPR_1.04.020EFDAOR to see the effective date for ordinances that the mayor doesn’t sign.
    So the timeline is different because the mayor responded on June 29, 2020:
    I have returned Council Bill 119805, passed unanimously by the council, unsigned, understanding it will become law 30 days upon my return of the legislation pursuant to SMC1.04.020.While I share the Council’s concerns about the Seattle Police Department’s (“SPD”) crowd management tactics to respond to recent protests, the Council’s actions: 1) undermined the authority of the three SPD civilian accountability oversight bodies….
    ————-
    That effective date Ord 126102 (formerly city bill 119805) looks like 28th of July.
    The previous text is from Letter from Mayor Durkan on Returning Bill Unsigned
    http://seattle.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=8648595&GUID=2761F0E6-FF40-47F2-B431-206751CE996A
    The link to the letter is on the bill history page.
    Note that the name of the ordinance differs from the apparently fake police letter.

    So, the bigger question is which dark force created this fake letter?

  5. The ordinance bans crowd control “weapons” and says that the city is on the hook for $10,000 per person for injuries emotional and physical sustained when tear gas is used during an event protected by the first amendment. (page 4-5).

    Here is a letter, written the previous day, which appears to be authentic.

  7. judicial chaos https://crosscut.com/2020/07/judge-blocks-seattles-ban-tear-gas-other-crowd-control-weapons
    Nevertheless, despite her opposition, [Chief] Best was set to comply with the council’s ban. She told officers on Thursday that they would no longer be allowed to use tear gas, pepper spray or blast balls.

    The DOJ, however, sought to block Best’s order from taking effect — creating the strange scenario in which the subject of the restraining order agrees with the principles of the order against her.

    To further confuse matters, the attorneys tasked with defending the City Council’s ban also represent the voices of those in Seattle City Hall who opposed that same ban. Just days earlier, the City Attorney’s Office had offered [Judge] Robart arguments on behalf of Best and [Maryor] Durkan for why the ban should not take effect, which he rejected.

    “The issuance of this immediate change, without time for additional direction or training, is likely to result in officer confusion,” he wrote.

    His order will last 14 days.

  8. A point that is missing on tweets that include the letter is that the Mayor did not sign the ordinance! She and the Chief went to court against it. The City Council passed the ordinance.
