Amazon.com is temporarily removing workers from a downtown Seattle office so employees don’t have to travel to an area that’s seen a spate of shootings, carjackings and other violent crimes.
“Given recent incidents near Third and Pine, we’re providing employees currently at that location with alternative office space elsewhere,” an Amazon spokesman said in an emailed statement. “We are hopeful that conditions will improve and that we will be able to bring employees back to this location when it is safe to do so.”
Here is a video showing the terrible situation in Seattle:
HAPPENING NOW: On this Fri night, I’m checking out the Macy’s building at the corner of 3rd and Pine in downtown Seattle since @amazon announced employees are bouncing due to all the insanity. Few blocks down near Union St, company’s fears are confirmed. Thank God for @SeattlePD pic.twitter.com/JCqs04JBfy

During the riots in the summer of 2020, Amazon was among the corporations that supported Black Lives Matters’ efforts.
Amazon on Monday became the latest tech company to face criticism for sharing public-facing statements supporting police reform and the Black Lives Matter movement while continuing internal policies and business practices that perpetuate the status quo.
Amazon on Twitter has called for an end to “the inequitable and brutal treatment of black people” in the US and has put a “Black lives matter” banner at the top of its home page. Its chief executive officer, Jeff Bezos, on Sunday posted on Instagram an email from a customer criticizing the BLM banner on Amazon’s home page, and said the emailer is the kind of customer he’s “happy to lose”.
