The despicable mayor of Seattle, who let this anarchist takeover of the streets of Seattle fester to the point that people were getting shot and killed, finally decided today it was time to send in the police to break up and dismantle CHOP (formerly known as CHAZ). I guess just asking them to leave didn’t work after all. Who could have seen this coming???
Below CNN reports that thirteen people were arrested this morning as Police went in:
Here’s more video of police moving in:
Here’s more from NBC News:
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued an executive order on Wednesday ordering demonstrators to clear the Capital Hill Occupied Protest Zone (CHOP), just two days after one person was killed and a 14-year-old boy was injured in a shooting.
Seattle police officers on bikes and on foot began dispersing the crowd at about 5 a.m. PT, per the mayor’s order.
“Anyone who remains in the area, or returns to the area, is subject to arrest,” the department said on Twitter.
By daylight, virtually the entire area was cleared.
“Officers continue to give dispersal orders and are checking Cal Anderson restrooms,” according to a police statement issued at 6:27 a.m. PT.
“Police will be clearing north end of the park soon. Thank you to the individuals affiliated with the CHOP who have assisted officers in encouraging people to safely leave the area.”
Durkan ordered the area to be clear for at least 48 hours.
As you recall, this was Durkan’s ridiculous response to Trump saying that this anarchist takeover over three weeks ago must be ended.
