This thing is getting more ridiculous each day. I was at a friend's house one time when her little brat of a kid was standing there with the door open, letting the air out and the mosquitoes in. The mom told her kid about 30 times to go in or out and close the door. He just stood there defiantly looking at her like she was nothing. It made me crazy. I'm now wondering if that mom moved to Seattle and became the Mayor.

Side note, there is a group who has declared themselves to be the unofficial police of this police free zone, furthering the perception of the "grown up free zone".

One more CHOP update:

According to Heavy, an event has been posted on Facebook in which a call is being put out for “American Patriots” to retake the so-called autonomous zone in Seattle, which has been named “CHAZ. The event, which has been scheduled for July 4, already has around 2,000 RSVPs with another 15,000 expressing interest in the event.

What could possibly go wrong? This is reality TV.

Darwin will take care of it if they just leave them alone LOL

If they were pulling this shit in their mom's basement, they should be left alone. They aren't. They've taken over a city park, a police station and local residents and some businesses have suffered. Allowing them to throw their temper tantrum until they wear themselves out and go home should have never been an option.

This area needs to fall back under the rule of law, and it needs to happen now, even if it takes a violent confrontation to make it happen.

Enough of this shit. It needs to end.

I hope the people that have chosen to sue the city over this win, win huge, and Seattle has to declare bankruptcy. Every politician that supported this should be tar'ed and feathered and run out of town on a rail.

I've yet to see anyone in Seattle comment on this in any way that sounds as impatient towards these idiots as you. Even those in the area that are suing are so cautious to make sure we are aware that they support the protester's rights. Until they muster up enough outrage to actually do something they get what they deserve. Odds are, they knew who this Mayor was when they elected her

The Mayor is in a rock and a hard place now, because she's just now catching on these protestors aren't like the corporate leaders she's used to interacting with, but she can't get tough now. My guess is someone will get paid off to try to lead the group of morons to another area in hopes it can end quietly.

As poorly as Seattle has handled much of this, they did a pretty good job today. It appears over time the local enablers became disappointed with the direction of the movement so they quit giving as much support (food). As a result the number of protesters / homeless has declined. This morning the SPD moved in at a time that was not the local occupant's best hour. They appear to be clearing the area with little resistance. To some extent their patience has paid off.

Ah man, I can't believe this didn't work out and become a sovereign nation within the US. It had success written all over it. Great job Seattle on letting their make believe little utopia drag on for so long though. How much is cleaning up their mess going to cost the taxpayers there?

They could probably just leave it the way it is. The rest of Seattle will look like that in a few years anyway.

Gotcha, getting "railroaded" by police is a good reason to protest and take up arms against the government. Getting killed by police for $20, sleeping in your house, walking with a hoddy on, resisting arrest, etc. is not.
“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just don’t belong.”
Anyone who “resist arrest” is in danger of getting shot no matter their skin shade. Doubt it? Next time you get pulled over start to run away or steal a cops taser and then run away. Go ahead, try it... btw this doesn’t excuse bad cops who do bad things to people due to their color, but personal responsibility is overlooked in a LOT of these discussions. Making hero’s out of crooks is a problem and will continue to be as long as those on that side can convince others that their circumstances made them that way, instead of their own bad choices.

I would think burning Federal land is considered a much worse crime than "resisting arrest". But that is just me. Also explain to me how Breonna Taylor resisted arrest by sleeping in her house having committed no crime?

And there it is folks. The people that left this place in this condition think they have a better way of running the country. Is there graffiti on absolutely every surface?

I don’t think anyone believes police should use lethal force for simply resisting arrest. But if you do resist arrest and appear to be reaching for a weapon an officer may end up using lethal force to protect themselves. The officers in Tulsa didn’t go from non lethal to lethal fast enough and paid dearly.

As for Taylor, I’ll wait for the facts to come out. If the version of LPD turns out to be true then it would appear to be an unfortunate situation but one where the LPD isn’t necessarily responsible for the death. Time will tell.

311 - Agreed every situation is different...Like I said, try resisting arrest and see how that goes. Doesn't matter who you are, you cannot resist arrest, especially if you are threating to the officers. If you do you might get shot...it is what it is. The property crime between ranchers and the BLM that you spoke of isn't a direct offense on a specific person, resisting arrest while being threating is. My parents taught me to ALWAYS comply with law enforcement, even when they are in the wrong...I'm not saying they are always good...I'm saying it's VERY good advice in self preservation.
