Shootings in Seattle’s CHOP take the lives of two teens

Two more young men were shot in “the CHOP” in Seattle, raising the total shootings to four. Two of those young men have died, and others are in critical condition. 19-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson was killed on June 20th. The latest victim’s name hasn’t been released, but he was only 16 years old. 

Seattle’s police chief Carmen Best noted the tragic irony of the shootings and deaths in “the CHOP,” saying that the young African American victims were supposedly in a place where Black lives matter :

It’s very unfortunate that we have another murder in this area identified as the CHOP. (They were) at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter but they’re gone. They’re dead now. And, we’ve had multiple other incidents — assaults, rapes, robbery, shootings — so this is something that’s going to need to change.

“The Chop” started out as CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle. Violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa protestors clashed with Seattle police for several days until the police abandoned their precinct. The protesters then claimed a roughly six-block area in Seattle and constructed barricades and walls to keep the police out.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan was optimistic about the protesters and CHAZ, describing the autonomous zone as having a festive air akin to a block party. She suggested that CHAZ could have a “summer of love,” just like 1967 in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. She did nothing to reclaim the area for the people that lived there until several lives were lost.

The name of the zone was changed to CHOP to remember the sound that the guillotine made in revolutionary France in the 18th century. The citizens of CHAZ seemed to admire the tactics of the “reign of terror,” which ended the lives of thousands of aristocrats and other “enemies of the state.”

Now CHOP resembles the reign of terror more than a block party unless you are in Chicago. And the 1967 “summer of love” turned violent after all. It is time for CHOP to end.

CHOP was scheduled for dismantling on June 27th, but protesters laid down in the street, making it impossible to use heavy equipment to remove the barriers. Indeed, the leaders of CHOP are seeking to secure the abandoned East precinct building as their headquarters.

It is hard to believe that these hostile groups are being allowed to occupy a sizeable area of an American city like Seattle, but that is exactly what is happening. When will it end?

when the mayor or governor say’s thing like ( I’m confident and optimistic that this will end peacefully ) oh excuse me that is PURE BULL SCHYTE, they are in 1000% denial of that, and they are running scared of a few, and those mayors and governors are 1000% incompetent to do the job that they lie to the voters to get. This should have been stopped at the start, these thug-hoods and gangsters should have been taken out at the get go. either walking or body bagged. Now the GOVERNMENT FAILURES of these states and cities, have BLOOD on their hands and any career in politics is gone, because of the BIG FAILURE that they are.

not one mention of the two police officers shot in Tulsa Okla. One may have already died. Nothing like focusing attention to a bunch of dimwits in Seattle. And i thought you were a legitimate news service.

Guess Seattle is happy with this situation. Protesters have costs lives, destroyed property and created chaos long
enough. Give the Police back their power (actually, they deserve a HUGE pay increase) and allow them to do their
job. Destruction of property and creating conditions that take the lives of others is no way for this country to be
affected. ENFORCE THE LAW.

Well I’m tired of the ppl in power say when will this stop. I’ll tell you. When we go in with force. Rubber bullets in the balls should do it. Anyone in CHOP is a terrist. Period.

You are so right. We have to defend and uphold our own. That’s the American way. We don’t wait for government – we DO as needed.

Of course this is happening. These terrorists that have taken over a part of the United States and the Mayor of that City says it’s okay and refuses to allow anyone step in and stop it, what did you expect?
NOW HOWEVER, since these Terrorists have shown up at her front door to HER mansion and demanded that she turn that over to them as well, she is screaming at the top of her lungs for help in getting rid of them! Actually I LOVE it and firmly believe it is Karma!

This is why Trump is letting these people make there own beds. He’s always a step ahead of these pathetic Democrat leaders. He knows by Election Day the people will have had enough of there bullshit. Trump is much smarter than any Democrat I’ve seen. They are actually electing him and they haven’t a clue. Let’s just
Sit back and watch the hysteria when Trump wins. 😂😞😂
