(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Due to the crime and policing policies in the Democrat-controlled city of Seattle, teenagers are forced to go through an open-air drug market filled with homeless addicts every day to get inside the building of their high school.
A Discovery Institute journalist Jonathan Choe shared footage that shows several people using hard-core drugs in the middle of the street during the day and selling stolen things on a street corner in the heart of the city, while children walk by them to go to and from Summit Sierra High School.
The students, teachers, and parents have largely realized that the Democrats in power are not going to do anything to solve this problem and that they are on their own now, according to the Post Millennial. The video shows a group of volunteers cleaning the sidewalks around the school of drug paraphernalia, including used needles.
“It really is living through America’s slums here in Seattle,” Choe said on “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Thursday.
“And this is the heart of the Chinatown International District, an area that’s already been marginalized, that already faces so many problems, homeless encampments, drug dens, drug users and the criminal activity that just comes along with all of this stuff.”
“The criminal activity, the drug dens, the homelessness, the enforcement isn’t there. Nobody is being arrested or prosecuted. And even if they are arrested and prosecuted, the judges let them out,” he added.
After he appeared on Fox News, Choe returned to the school and surrounding blocks to see if anything changed and found that everything is the same.
“It was packed again with open-air drug use, sales of stolen merch, and no police in sight. This is what the students and staff face every single day. Why are we jeopardizing their safety and allowing this to flourish? [Whose] rights are more important?” he wrote in his tweet, adding even more footage.
