Seattle hires former Pimp to keep the peace (So they can defund the Police)

    The City of Seattle gave a $150,000 contract to Andre Taylor, a former pimp, to offer expertise on de-escalation and alternatives to policing. Taylor has no formal training (or expertise) on de-escalation.

    Taylor’s role is a “street czar” — a made-up title that hasn’t provided many public victories, since Seattle homicides, arsons, and stabbings are on the uptick.

    Nothing against getting some information from streetwise people, but I think they could have gotten that cheaper.

    How come that sort of thing never comes my way?

    This leaves out quite a lot. For starters, Taylor served his time nearly twenty years ago. Since then, he’s become a motivational speaker and a community organizer, raising money and supporting his community in positive ways. He’s been an advocate for peaceful protest, and has denounced the rioters, something people keep saying BLM never does.

    Nothing new for the left. I heard about this guy who was a big time leftist, even friends with the Clinton’s. He got this high paying gig to run a country and had no experience doing that and they hired him anyway.

    Uhhh, yeah, they've been in business with the underbelly of the city for years...nothing new. Have you ever heard of Confidential Informants?

    *Now, they are doing it on the table, instead of under.

    Yeah, if you're a run-of-the-mill pimp in America, you can work your way up to a $150k contract with a city. But if you're the guy who cuts a sweetheart deal with the most infamous pimp-of-underaged-girls-to-the-stars in American (world?) history, then they make you Secretary of Labor.
