One of the most difficult things for governments to deal with is repeat criminals.
The type of Individuals in society who have lost or may never have experienced a fear of authorities, thus the normal inhibitions which keep people in line culturally, are not present.
When you add in incompetent and/or corrupt politicians, the communities they live in can eventually end up resembling war zones, such as the south side of Chicago.
In addition, excessive immigration, understaffed policing, and gang activity generally prevents capital investments in the neighborhoods, thus property values also decline leading to a feeling of hopelessness.
On March 25, 2022, Interim Police Chief Adrian Diaz told a city council panel this week Seattle has seen more than a 95% increase in shots fired and a 171% increase in people being shot, compared to last year.
One of these criminals, a convicted felon, was arrested for burglary by the Seattle Police. They reported that he shot himself in the head while trying to run away from the scene of a break-in in a north Seattle neighborhood.
A homeowner told police he heard sounds coming from his garage around 7 a.m. on Wednesday. When he went to check it out, he saw a masked man in his garage. The suspect turned and ran with the victim chasing after him.
As the suspect was getting into a van, he pointed a gun at the victim and told him to “get back.” The victim ran and then told police he heard a gunshot and heard the van speed away.
The victim returned home and called 911. Officers arrived on the scene and began checking the area for evidence, and soon received a radio broadcast that a man had arrived at a First Hill hospital with a gunshot wound to his head.
Officers went to the hospital to talk to the injured individual and found he was wearing the same clothes the homeowner reported from the burglary earlier.

Police believe the man accidentally fired his handgun while getting into the van. They also learned the van he was in was reported stolen and had been used in another crime outside of Seattle.
When the suspect recovered from his injuries, he will be booked into the King County Jail for burglary, unlawful possession of a firearm, felony harassment, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
