Mother of Lorenzo Anderson Jr. Files Lawsuit Against Seattle

Posted by Sean Hannity on Tuesday, July 21, 2020

A grieving mother is suing the city of Seattle over her sons murder in the ‘CHOP’ Zone; claiming police and paramedics were instructed to avoid the area and were unable to help her child following a fatal shooting.

“She and her lawyer claim police failed to help 19-year old Lorenzo Anderson after he was shot near that protest zone a month ago,” reports local news channel Q13.

“Despite being just up the road, paramedics did not come to this corner to help her son,” said one journalist.

“I just don’t know why they would say ‘no.’ Why would you get the okay to not go in? I’m just confused,” said the mother.

The Seattle Police Department told protesters in the city’s ‘CHOP’ district to vacate the streets Wednesday; citing “ongoing violence and public safety issues” after a series of shootings left two people dead.

“Due to ongoing violence and public safety issues in the East Precinct/Cal Anderson Park area. Mayor Jenny Durkan has issued an executive order to vacate the area. Seattle police will be in the area this morning enforcing the Mayor’s order,” posted the department.

 

“Since demonstrations at the East Precinct area began on June 8th, two teenagers have been killed and three people have been seriously wounded in late-night shootings. Police have also documented robberies, assaults, and other violent crimes,” adds the SPD.

President Trump vowed to restore law and order in Seattle Thursday after protesters stormed city hall, demanded the mayor’s resignation, and created a six-block ‘Autonomous Zone’ in the heart of the city.

“Radical Left Governor @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!” posted Trump on Twitter.

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.
