Like many progressive-run cities on the west coast, Seattle has serious problems: homelessness, criminal activities openly committed on the streets and attacks by repeat offenders. See the following:

Violent repeat offender in Seattle assaults toddler with coffee, two days after his jail release
Now this past week a defense attorney was attacked from behind by a repeat offender in downtown Seattle. The victim landed on a fire hydrant after the hit and the repeat offender tried to push him in the street.
The perp was just released from jail earlier this month and has been arrested four times in the last two months. His crimes include trespassing and assault. The perp pleaded guilty to the assault and received a deferred sentence, meaning he was let out of jail.
If you have any plans to visit Seattle, I’d either change my plans or stay far, far away from downtown. It is no longer a safe city for law-abiding citizens.
