LAWLESS IN SEATTLE: Protesters Create ‘Autonomous Zone’ in City Center, ‘Extort Local Businesses’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.11.20

From Fox News:

Seattle police say they have received reports of armed guards and potential extortion in a self-declared autonomous zone that spans several blocks and includes a now-closed precinct.

“We’ve heard, anecdotally, reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area. This is the crime of extortion. If anyone has been subjected to this, we need them to call 911,” Assistant Chief of Police Deanna Nollette said on Wednesday.

Protesters calling to defund the police and make sweeping reforms to law enforcement tactics have declared a six-block region — spanning 13th Avenue past 11th Avenue, near Cal Anderson Park, and from East Olive Street to East Pike Street — the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ).

The region encompasses the SPD’s East Precinct, which was abandoned by cops on Monday following days of violent clashes between law enforcement and protesters in the wake of George Floyd’s death, as well as parts of Capitol Hill.

CITIES SPIRAL: Seattle Councilmember Wonders Why ‘Looting Bothers People’ When ‘People Die Everyday’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.02.20

Far-left Seattle Councilmember Tammy Morales stunned her own constituents this week after violent protests rocked her city; saying she can’t figure out “why looting bothers people” when “people die everyday.”

“It does make me wonder and ask the question why looting bothers people so much more than knowing that across the country, black men and women are dying every day, and far too often at the hands of those who are sworn to protect and serve,” said Morales.

 

“I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men,” added the Mayor.

Hundreds of protesters seized Seattle’s City Hall Tuesday night; demanding the mayor’s resignation and declaring a six-block “autonomous zone” in the heart of town.

“Hundreds of protesters, aided by a sympathetic City Council member, stormed Seattle‘s City Hall Tuesday night to demand the mayor’s resignation, just days after seizing a six-block downtown zone that includes a shuttered police precinct,” reports Fox News.

 

 

 

“The protesters continued to camp out in a self-declared “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ)– a region spanning six blocks and encompassing the precinct– which has effectively been abandoned by law enforcement after the Seattle Police Department closed the East Precinct on Monday,” adds Fox.
