"Seattle Is Dying"

From Seattle's own KOMO-4 News:
KOMO News Special: Seattle is Dying

This show, that we've been working on for several months now, is really the third in a kind of trilogy.
The first was called "There But For the Grace of God..." It explored homelessness from the inside out in 2016.

The second was called, "Demon at the Door." It was about the hellish existence of heroin addiction.
This one is about everyone else.It's about citizens who don't feel safe taking their families into downtown Seattle. It's about parents who won't take their children into the public parks they pay for. It's about filth and degradation all around us. And theft and crime. It's about people who don't feel protected anymore, who don't feel like their voices are being heard....
...MUCH MORE, including the videos

And here I was thinking Mr. Bezos wanted out of Seattle because of the certainty of a Cascadia Fault 9.0+ megaquake:
