(RightWing.org) – For weeks, Seattle officials have allowed agitators to take over six blocks of the downtown district. The wannabe-anarchists named the area the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) zone. Both the mayor and city council allowed it to happen, but it seems they’ve finally woken up to the realization the US has laws…kind of.
After two shootings, one of which led to the death of a teenager, city officials ordered the squatters out of the area. Mayor Jenny Durkan said, “It’s time for people to go home.”
After weekend shootings and under mounting pressure, Seattle’s mayor says the city will move to dismantle “CHOP” – a move that would allow officers to return to the East Precinct two weeks after essentially abandoning it: https://t.co/1N17XnSjl0

Then, Durkan said, police will return to the area in the “near future” but she doesn’t think they should clear the area. Instead, she believes leaders in the Black community and others will be able to get the people out of the CHOP zone.
Even after two shootings, one death, and at least one assault on a woman, the Democratic mayor wants to play nice. Unbelievable.
