Seattle: Too Woke For A Black Female Police Chief.

Seattle’s First Black Female Police Chief Resigns After Council Caves to BLM; Reporters Note Irony.

Thanks to the Seattle City Council’s Monday vote to cut her salary and gut the police department, Police Chief Carmen Best is resigning, effective September 2nd.

In the resignation letter she emailed her colleagues on the force, Best told her fellow officers that “this was a difficult decision for me, but when it’s time, it’s time.” She also stated she was “confident the department will make it through these difficult times. You truly are the best police department in the country and please trust me when I say the vast majority of people in Seattle support you and appreciate you.”

Read her full resignation letter below:

Best has nearly 3 decades of service with the Seattle PD, and became the department’s first black female police chief in August 2018.

As I wrote Saturday before the official vote was taken, the council’s decision to cut Best’s salary shouldn’t be viewed as anything else but straight up retaliation for her vocal criticisms of the council’s stated desire to defund the police department.

The irony here cannot be overstated. In an effort to appease radical “Black Lives Matter” activists, the City Council chose to show their support for diverse black voices by punishing one for expressing her disagreement.

Seattle/Tacoma talk radio show host Jason Rantz, who has been following this story closely and who has attended some of the BLM protests, weighed in on his Twitter feed:
