Someday, in “the near future,” Seattle police will be allowed to beg for their precinct back. The liberal mayor finally gave police the green light to “peacefully” recover their station from the occupying anarchists. They just can’t do it yet.
Police want their precinct back
The police in downtown Seattle, Washington were told they can recover the precinct headquarters where they usually keep their donuts stashed “peacefully and in the near future.” Progressive and intellectually challenged Mayor Jenny Durkan made a typical bureaucratic announcement that sounds good and means nothing.
For public relations reasons they decided to stop calling the kingdom of anarchy CHAZ for Capital Hill Autonomous Zone because that sounded too threatening. They changed it to CHOP for Capitol Hill Organized Protest. An organized protest is a much nicer place for three people to be shot than a lawless autonomous zone for anarchists.
According to Mayor Durkan, the property destruction and violence were “distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters.” Police were chased out of their own precinct nearly two weeks ago. “The cumulative impacts of the gatherings and protests and the nighttime atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents.”

police repelled by the mob
When two protesters were shot over the weekend, police tried to respond and render aid but were repelled by the mob. Separately, a 17-year-old was shot in the arm on Sunday. Having a serial sniper running around puts a damper on the whole festival air of the commune. Except for random murders, friends of George Soros have been handing out free food and playing music.
The carnival atmosphere of the day turns to fear and lawlessness at night. The zone had to organize an ambulance company pronto Saturday night. “Volunteer medics inside the zone brought the victims of Saturday’s shooting to the hospital.” The police and fire units were stuck at the border in immigration and customs.
Mayor Durkan is upset that the radicals refuse to respect the authority of first responders. “There should be no place in Seattle that the Seattle Fire Department and the Seattle Police Department can’t go,” she declares, ignoring the fact that her police can’t enter their own precinct and it’s all her fault for allowing it to continue.
The anarchists have already started forming a government to issue demands. They want a “safe use area” on the edges of their turf to expand their sphere of territory. They also want “different signage encouraging intoxicated persons to stay away.” The anarchists even want a curfew “to prevent destructive behavior at night.” No revolution is perfect they write. “We would like to acknowledge that no organizations, protests, or revolutions are perfect. We must all be willing to collectively learn and react quickly to mistakes made within our movement. We do not want to see what was started with the intention of lifting the BLM message destroyed before us all.”
