Seattle hires ex-pimp to be ‘Street Czar’

| September 23, 2020

Seattle has had a lot of issues as of late. Most of them are being blamed by the protesters and politicians on the police. Cops are leaving the department because it’s not a friendly place to work, and earlier this year the city abandoned a precinct, giving it and a good chunk of the city, to the protesters. Eventually after murders, sexual assaults, and other nefarious activity, the city had to bust down the “autonomous zone.”

Solving one problem, the city now wants to address “systemic” issues with the police. Naturally, the person you hire for this should be an expert on police-community interactions, right? Seattle found their man. You might even say, “He’s the pimp!”

The city of Seattle has hired an ex-pimp at a $150,000 a year salary as the new “Street Czar,” Andre Taylor. Before Taylor was contracted by the city to provide “expertise and support services in de-escalation, community engagement, and alternatives to policing,” he was engaged in prostitution.

According to KOMO news, “…under the terms of the year-long contract, the city will pay Taylor and his group, called Not This Time, $150,000” for their services.

“The contract was signed by a representative from the city’s Department of Neighborhoods on June 22, as the CHOP demonstrations were still unfolding. Taylor didn’t sign the contract, however, until July 27.”

In Las Vegas, Cheryl Davis admitted to being a prostitute and living in Taylor’s home, with two other women who were engaged in the same concern, one who was a teen runaway and the other who had years of experience, and is now facing felony charges in association with prostitution.

According to the Las Vegas Sunduring Taylor’s trial on pimping charges “…Davis told of bringing Taylor thousands of dollars from her prostitution activities although she got little in return.”

Taylor was eventually convicted of seven prostitution-related counts, three involving the Davis, two involving adult women who traveled with him, as well as two money-laundering counts.

Taylor was featured in the 1999 documentary American Pimp which examined “pimping subculture,” and is known to have bragged about impregnating the young girls he pimped.

Obviously, this man has experience with police interactions. Probably not ones that were mutually productive, but what can you do?

One might wonder just what his bona fides are for being a community organizer. Well wonder no more;

Seattle officials and the local media call Taylor a “civic activist” in large part because his brother, Che Taylor, was killed by police in 2016 during an attempted arrest for drug possession.

The shooting was ruled lawful when a gun was found at the scene. Che Taylor had been previously convicted of rape and robbery and had multiple outstanding warrants. Activists in Seattle continue to demand justice.

After the shooting, Andre Taylor formed the group “Not This Time” which seeks to “engage with local community members, the families of those who have lost their loved ones to police shootings, and those who work inside the system, to demand more police accountability and safer communities.”

One would think that, if he really wanted to see fewer police shootings, that “Not This Time” would focus more on educating convicted felons that they cannot legally possess firearms. Further educate them that if they do (illegally) possess firearms, they probably shouldn’t pull them on the cops trying to arrest you for all your warrants. Again, what can you do? I’m sure Seattle will get their $150k worth out of a man whose street name is “Gorgeous Dre.”

    Any bet the source of the $150K is federal grant money? In other words us taxpayers who don’t live in Washington are footing the bill.

  2. E4 Mafia '83-'87 says:

    So, the Pimp and his bottom bitch get a $150k from the city? I’m sure that will make things better…for his pimping business. I know it ain’t easy but necessary. Guys like that are chameleons…they only change their colors but not who they are. Just another reason that whole corner of the country is wasteland.

  3. FuzeVT says:

    I’ll advise on how to solve Seattle’s problems for free right here:
    ►Stop being such a bunch of nambie pambie sissy boys
    ►Fire every elected official in the county and allow the citizens of Gunbarrel City, Texas to elect the new lot
    ►Double the size of the police department and move all budget currently given to anything dealing with people’s feelings or some other leftist crap idea to the department
    ►Put criminals in jail and publicize the arrests and punishments (all completely per the legal system)
    ►Deal with any recist events as they occur and according to the facts of the case

    • FuzeVT says:

      *►Deal with any racist events as they occur and according to the facts of the case

      It’s “racist” not “recists”, of course. I think recists just really like peanut butter and chocolate.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Gee whiz, Fuze, could you stop holding back, for Pete’s sake??? You’re far too calm and orderly in the way you presented that.

    • Berliner says:

      As for putting criminals in jail, the county executive, Dow Constantine, wants to eliminate 1 of the 2 jails… the larger one which was built in 1986 and houses 2/3 of the jail population and also “depopulate” the youth jail. That is not the only issue with him:

      “A second anonymous source claimed that not long after Constantine became the King County Executive, it became clear to his protection detail that nearly five nights a week, Constantine would expect to be driven to a bar, and code it on the schedule as a “meeting.” A detective would then wait outside while the Executive would drink with a member of his staff.

      Several emails obtained through a public disclosure request, and others provided through an anonymous source, support these allegations. A 2017 email revealed that in one instance, a detective waited for the Executive outside a bar, and then received a text hours later from Constantine, who had left the bar but forgot to tell the detective still waiting outside.

      Another email from 2018 describes how a detective on the clock drove Constantine and staffers to the airport to board a flight to Wenatchee, and was then told to drive to Wenatchee himself, pick them up, and drive them back to Seattle. Rather than taking a direct route back to Seattle, though, the detective was then instructed to reroute to Skykomish to stop at a bar.”

    What Orwellian/Stalinistic bullshit is the ‘Department of Neighborhoods’?
    And Che Taylor wasn’t killed by police, he killed himself by his stupid actions.
    What a mess.
    And to the Pimp-in-Chief over there in Shitattle, if you’re ever up in CT look me up, I’m calling you out.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      But don’t worry folks, dude’s a genius!
      From the above KOMO article, “Me, as a black man has the right to be paid for my genius or for whatever my organization can provide,” Taylor said. “Black people as a whole have not been in a place to be compensated for their genius or their work for a very very long time.”
      Clearly high on his own farts.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Ummm, how come so many, many black people are successfully employed and have good careers that don’t involve any kind of criminal activity?

      Is he living on the same planet they are on? The ignorance this dorkwad emits is like a plague miasma – don’t breathe the same air he does. Ever.

      Fully awash in his own conceit….

      • Roh-Dog says:

        Just another child, incapable of taking responsibility for his actions and willing to place blame on a society that will cave to his threats by enabling his stupidity.
        They are a cult, prove me wrong.

  5. M48DAT says:

    Don’t make me slap a ho! (back to my lane, couldn’t resist)

  6. Hondo says:

    Well, instead of coffee Seattle apparently wants to be known for premium granola.

    Premium, as in “we have proportionally more nuts and flakes than California”.

  7. OWB says:

    Sounds like a protection racket.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      ‘That’s a nice city you’ve got there, it’d be a shame if something happened to it. We can watch over it for you for a small, reoccurring fee…’
      Hey FBI, is RICO still a thing?

    • Berliner says:

      “During the height of CHAZ, Durkan was desperate to have someone — anyone — from the activist community to give her office some legitimacy. Taylor was that man. And in secretly recorded audio, Taylor attempted to negotiate between CHAZ activists and the city. It didn’t go well.

      Taylor told the activists he could broker a deal where community organizations get up to two million dollars from the city if the activists ended their siege in CHAZ.

      “So don’t just leave. Leave with something. And I can make that happen,” Taylor told them.”

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    Remember that song ‘The Day Chicago Died”?

    I think it applies here. He must admire Al Capone.

    The city will never get rid of him, unless someone does it for them.

    • Fjardeson says:

      Great song 🙂

    • Hack Stone says:

      The Night Chicago Died, by Paper Lace. Prominently featured in an untold number of radio hits albums, such as K-Tel. Also available on 8-Track and Cassette!

      In 1929, seven people were killed in the Chicago St. Valentines Day Massacre. It so shocking that inspired the writing of books, songs and movies. Seven people getting killed in one incident in Chicago these days is the outcome of any block party or kids birthday party. And they keep voting Democrat in these hellholes.

  9. MustangCryppie says:

    If Seattle doesn’t get rid of these clowns in November, then they deserve it all good and hard.

    And PDT, don’t give Seattle one thin dime. They made their bed. Sleep in it.

    • Thunderstixx says:

      I currently own the world’s smallest violin and I am now playing, “My Heart Bleeds for You” !!!!
      And sympathy, look it up, between shit and syphillis, that’s where you’ll find your share….
      They have been voting for liberals for decades, stay there and deal with it !!!

  10. penguinman000 says:

    This is actually in line with all the other silliness going on over there. Perhaps they have some old Chappell show writers crafting policy?

    I heard they are looking for Tyrone Biggums to head the new drug task force for the PD.

  11. Green Thumb says:

    Might just be the right guy for the job, all things considered.

    Definitely would put him on an incentive-based commission type of contract and assign a legal aide-de-camp that would report back to higher.

    I guess we will see…..

  12. The Other Whitey says:

    The lefties’ new champion is a piece of shit who ran teenage girls into prostitution and sexually abused them. I thought they were against human trafficking! I thought they were against slavery! And he wants “justice” for his piece-of-shit brother who was a violent rapist.

    What happened to the “me too” crap? There’s zero consistency.

  13. While we are on this topic, I would like to go off topic for a few seconds and say that on WFTL 850AM Florida it was mentioned that any protester/protestors that attack LEO’s and others will be subject to arrests and jail time by the Governor, with no bail and the Florida demoRATS who heard about it are going to fight it because they say that doing this is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

  14. Graybeard says:

    Seattle is screwed. Professionally screwed now.

    • Green Thumb says:

      And a Con Man….

      The Mayor will have a hard time defending this.

      As will a lot of Black people in the greater Seattle community who are more-than-likely completely disgusted With this decision as they have families and daughters as well….

  15. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    If Bernath was still alive, I bet they’d hire him to head their Legal Department.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      And prolly give him Dprt of Transportation, Chief of POL.

      Seems as if the only difference between what we are seeing now in Seattle/Portland and who was running those cities in the novel “Dies The Fire”, is the electric grid hasn’t gone down yet.

      Is this all Mike Judge’s fault?
      Films are eligible for inclusion on the National Film Registry after 10 years, every year for the last four since the 2006 release of Idiocracy has been a national shame.
      Let’s right this egregious wrong.

  17. Jarhead says:

    No doubt they considered hiring him because of his education. Didn’t I see where he ALMOST earned a GED?
    He even “worked” while pursuing his degree. Pimpin’ be hard work you know.

  18. Poetrooper says:

    Just more “empirical” evidence (By the way–where is HE?) that liberalism is a mental illness…

  19. Elaine67 says:

    Apparently her disgusting comment of “a summer of love” describing the CHOPS seizure of her city was a HINT of things to come. And the Rioters Kingdom she turned her city into; well it was a truer comment than anyone suspected. It was a prophecy of what was to come.
    She treats her taxpayers as PROSTITUTES!!!!!
    The King of Pimps is now in charge of Seattle. No, not your Democratic Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan or your Democrat Washington Governor Jay Inslee, no NOT the overpaid BOZOS YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE PAYING TO RUN YOUR CITY AND STATE WHILE DEFUNDING THE POLICE.
    No, they have hired a PIMP to do it for them. They are paying a criminal for human trafficking in your city. She (the piece of dirt) belongs on the street with the rest of the brain dead zombies burning her city down. The people in Seattle must not understand rational thought or what they’re politicians are supposed to do for them. The politicians are not supposed to defund the police and let their cities and citizens be raped, robbed, tortured, burned, and murdered by out of control ANTIFA THUGS and CRIMINALS. But instead of defending the taxpayers she swore to protect, she has now put your SAFETY and your TAX dollars to work and turned them over to A PIMP $150,000!!!! A PIMP, yes a PIMP! A PIMP is a human trafficker buying, using and selling women, men and children as sex slaves for so much an hour and if a few get beaten up or dead he does not give a D***m; plenty more victims to be had on Seattle’s battle torn street. The bastard starts these young sex slaves and runaways as young as eleven and twelve years old. Their days are filled servicing dozens and dozens of depraved individuals and a lot of the time it includes a beating too. The PIMP a stellar individual, used to dishing out pain and suffering DEFINITELY NOT KNOWN FOR HELPING ANYONE!
    When are you IDIOT VOTERS going to wake up and get rid of these USELESS DEMOCRATIC LEADERS? VOTE Republican – Stop the BURNING DOWN OF YOUR CITIES and the destruction of your youth.
