While it's certainly no secret that the homeless invasion of Seattle has left the city in a literal pile of rat-infested garbage and human waste, what gets little attention is the millions of dollars of goods looted from stores throughout the city by an army of homeless thieves in a systematic and organized process.
The homeless fan out across the city every day via the bus system, then at the end of the day (around 4pm) they bring their loot to various locations in the International District and sell their loot to people on the street, and quite often businesses and restaurants. Often selling stolen meat to restaraunts to be served to their customers.
The pictures below represent the stolen goods trafficking that goes on daily at just one such location on Jackson Street. Various buyers will park their cars and vans at this shopping center and wait for the busses to arrive and the stolen goods to pour in. Then the goods will be sold on website such as eBay for a tidy profit.
Recently I met with a retired Seattle PD Officer who now owns a private security company and was told that the Bartells Drug Store on Jackson St. loses approximately $6,000 in merchandise per week to theft by the homeless. The City will not arrest or prosecute these crimes. The Sheriff's office has contracted with the Transit Authority to try and restore safety to the bus stops throughout the city, but they are overwhelmed by the volume of thieves.
The Seattle City Counsel is completely worthless when it comes to protected civilians and businesses in the city, they don't even try. Their primary concern are the drug addicts they have invited from all over the country to live on the streets of Seattle; they mean everything, you mean nothing.
