Supporters of Seattle police rally to keep funding for the department
And supporters will hold a support SPD demonstration outside of Seattle City hall. The demonstration will be held before to Budget committee meetings at 10 a.m. and two PM seven of the nine Seattle City Council members have expressed support for de funding the department by 50%. The mayor is asking for 20%. Police chief Carmen Best we would never ask. I would never ask my opinion or thoughts on it at all. She says. She knew some defunding what happened as a result of this movement, but not to the extent the council is supporting is going to be very sad if people end up losing their jobs. It would be absolutely detrimental and terrible. And I don't think will ever recover from it. We would do best of the whole people will not come back to Seattle to work.
