Amazon Is Pulling Out of Seattle And the Reason Is…

Amazon, the online retailer that has become a staple in most Americans’ lives, has made a huge decision: the company will be pulling out of Seattle, Washington.

Seattle is a shining example of what happens when Democrats are in power for too long: violent crime is rampant, and thugs run the streets.

There are currently 1,800 employees that work at the Seattle Amazon office. But it is currently unclear how many of them are being relocated as many have continued to work remotely since the start of the COVID pandemic two years ago.

The spike in Seattle’s violent crime hit a new high on March 2nd, when 15 year old Michael del Bianco was shot and killed at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pike Street, which is where Amazon’s office building is located.

A spokesperson for Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell claimed that he is making public safety a priority, releasing a statement that said:

“Mayor Harrell will continue to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety in collaboration with police and safety advocates, community members, service providers, and businesses, including Amazon, to activate, revitalize, and restore downtown for all.”

A report from The Seattle Times went into detail on the story, writing:

Amazon.com is temporarily removing workers from a downtown Seattle office so employees don’t have to travel to an area that’s seen a spate of shootings, carjackings and other violent crimes.

“Given recent incidents near Third and Pine, we’re providing employees currently at that location with alternative office space elsewhere,” an Amazon spokesman said in an emailed statement. “We are hopeful that conditions will improve and that we will be able to bring employees back to this location when it is safe to do so.”

“Mayor Harrell will continue to develop a comprehensive approach to public safety in collaboration with police and safety advocates, community members, service providers, and businesses, including Amazon, to activate, revitalize, and restore downtown for all,” a spokesperson for Mayor Bruce Harrell told KOMO News in a statement.
