Target SHUTS DOWN Stores in Seattle and Portland: The FAILURE of Local Government

YouTube player

The cracks in law and order in Pacific Northwest cities like Portland and Seattle are starting to show, with Target announcing the closure of nine stores, five of which are in these two cities. Ah, the sweet scent of political negligence. Local politicians are apparently too busy “reimagining” public safety to address the rising incidents of violent crime and theft that have made it unsustainable for businesses to operate. The mayors of these cities have offered tepid responses, if at all. While Seattle’s mayor remains conspicuously silent, Portland’s Mayor Ted Wheeler, who’s in his “I’m-not-running-for-reelection-so-who-cares” phase, labeled the situation as “disheartening.” That’s one way to put it. Meanwhile, residents and businesses are left to fend for themselves in what could serve as a great backdrop for the next post-apocalyptic blockbuster.

The decision by Target to pull out didn’t occur in a vacuum. When corporate giants start labeling certain locations as unsafe to operate in, perhaps it’s time for a reality check. How about a summer of love do-over, anyone? The mismanagement by local government is not just a slap in the face to hardworking citizens and businesses but also serves as a stark reminder of the fallacy of their political rhetoric. While politicians espouse lofty ideals about public safety and community building, the actual situation on the ground tells a different storyβ€”one that involves shuttered stores, neglected neighborhoods, and a community struggling to pick up the pieces.
