A Seattle, Washington city councilman with ties to the Black Panthers is claiming power-washing the feces and urine-covered sidewalks outside the courthouse is – get this – racist.
The crime and smell of urine and excrement have gotten so bad outside a King County courthouse that two judges are scrambling to find ways to fix the situation.
Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.
I have literally no response to that.
