There’s no two ways about it: now-former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best got screwed by the city she dedicated herself to serving and protecting.
Progressive plan to cure Seattle of violent riots:
1. Defund Police.
2. Tell African American Chief of Police that she is worth $100k less than her white male predecessor.
3. Sit back and watch the violence fade away!

If there’s a silver lining in all this, it’s that Best is now free to wash her hands of a mess she fought hard to prevent. And we can take some comfort in knowing that she’ll now have more time to enjoy herself:

Chief I’m a retired NYPD Officer and it was great to see a true law enforcement professional stand up for their beliefs in these times. Now sit back and watch that once great city ruin itself! All the best in your next chapter in your professional and personal life!!
