George Soros Open Society a reality.
One of the worst areas in America.

We’ll call it “American Urban Safari.”
And here is another DailyMail article on the decline of Seattle. Nike is apparently closing its flagship store there, along with the multiplex cinema.
I've seen videos of this neighborhood, and had wondered what the heck everyone was taking. I saw a lot of people standing motionless, but bending down at odd angles.

They closed 5 Starbucks and I believe Nordstrom’s downtown store also.
The only way to fix this mess is to institute Singaporean corrections: mandatory death penalty by hanging for drug dealers. Must be carried out immediately after judicial review. No exceptions.
Back in the 70s I lived in the Fairmount section of the city, just south of Girard Avenue. I and everyone I knew was aware that you just don’t go in to Kensington. Not if you want to come back out alive. I can’t imagine trying to live in there.
