A former Seattle businessman who moved after 40 years said on Wednesday that the liberal city is in a downward spiral.
Joey Rodolfo, a clothing stylist and co-founder of Buki Clothing, told Fox & Friends that he was back in the city recently and believes that the governor and mayor have failed to address the protests and riots by Black Lives Matter and Antifa, including this past weekend.
“There are no consequences. And we have a city attorney who turns his back on businessmen and allows these people to run wild in the city and destroy property. Seattle, unfortunately, is going down the drain as we speak.”
ANTIFA BLOCKS SEATTLE POLICE FROM RESPONDING TO EMERGENCIES WITH SNOW BARRIER
Meanwhile, a video posted on Instagram on Saturday night by user ‘standwithseattlepd’ shows a snow barrier built by protesters outside the East District of the Seattle Police Department.
In the video, a police vehicle is seen rolling backwards after trying to pass through the barrier.
“Antifa’s henchmen blocked the exit of the Eastern District with a lot of snow tonight, in an effort to prevent vehicles from responding to emergency calls,” said the user in the caption of a separate video showing a crowd of police in walk around the barrier.
Another video of the incident published by journalist Andy Ngo shows protesters cheering as the vehicle fails to pass through the snow barrier.

Rodolfo said he is looking forward to running his business in Arizona. He mentioned that Republican Arizona governor Doug Ducey founded an organization called the Arizona Economic Authority, which is run by a “visionary woman”.
“The type of industry coming into Arizona is incredible, as Arizona will become the number one producer of semiconductors in the country,” he said, applauding the president of the Arizona Economic Authority for “rolling out the red carpet” to bring in new business. .
