This is a must see documentary that shows how the quality of life in a city can collapse when homelessness, drug use and addiction, and mental health issues take over neighborhoods. The documentary illustrates how bad neighborhood conditions become when laws are not enforced, police are handcuffed, citizen voice are not heard, the criminal justice system fails (prosecutors and courts) and politicians don’t work to protect the community.
Below is a link to an article in national review ‘What if Seattle Is Dying, and We Don’t Even Know It?’. The article discusses a documentary from KOMO’s (Seattle news channel) Eric Johnson that explores the impact the drug and homelessness problem is having on Seattle and possible solutions in “Seattle is Dying.”
The documentary explores topics such as: broken windows policing, quality of life, message from politicians, disgruntled police, upset citizens etc.

- Some of us believe that the death penalty contradicts our values about protecting life.
- And for many other reasons…
