Raz Simone, a local rapper with an AK-47 ... was filmed allegedly assaulting multiple protestors who disobeyed his orders, informing them that he was the "police" now, sparking fears that he was becoming the de facto warlord of the autonomous zone.
The city government has not developed a strategic response to the takeover of Capitol Hill. According to one Seattle police officer with knowledge of internal deliberations, the citys leadership is in chaos and the mayor has made the decision to let a mob of 1,000 people dictate public safety policy for a city of 750,000. The officer said that Chief Best had dispatched high-ranking police officials to the autonomous zone to establish a line of communication, but the officials were immediately sent away by armed paramilitaries at the barricades.

What is a Mayor to do when his friends and allies act like wild animals?
More like Bolshevik revolution redux...this time with Antifa, the Mexican cartels, the Crips, Bloods, and BLM all in the mix. That “rapper” with the AK won’t be there long!
A tidbit I missed. Yes, the mob now controls City Hall at the behest of the most radical council member. This thing is truly out of control.
I am rarely selfish, but I don’t want this to end. I want to see how far the devolvement goes.
Liberals need this to learn.
I know how to get the Seattle police to retake the Captiol Hill area that they gave up to the leftist anarchists. Just have a bunch of AR-15 toting MAGA dudes take over the precinct and start picking up the trash and cleaning the place up. The Seattle police would be there in a jiffy to put a stop to that!
An AK-47? Paging Hogg Boy and that mom group.
It’s Mayor Jenny Durkin, former U.S. Attorney there under Obama. She is very liberal.
The “free people” are calling for her resignation because she is not liberal enough.
Seattle is a strange place.
Or have someone cut hair or sing a hymn...
Yes, I heard that this socialist council member has the keys to the city hall, and let them in. The anarchists didn’t have to break in, she opened the door and let them in.
How generous, so they didn’t have to destroy property to make their political statement, as they didn’t have to break in.
Twenty years ago, I was walking to work on Seattle with a pair of cops. The black one said, “I am from Chicago and worked on their force. Seattle is nuts. I have to report the race of everyone I arrest AND HOW I FELT ABOUT IT. That’a crazy.”
Lord of the Flies in real-time.
So in the workers’ communist paradise it was the tough guy with a gun tha ttook over?
That never happens! Except for every time leftists grab power...
The mob needs to defund the elected officials.
The West Coast has been devolving with Liberalism for Decades. They voted for these politicians. They voted for these policies. They have brought upon themselves.
President Trump should let them suffer for there choices. They are experiencing the results of their personal choices but, they never imagined what the end results would be.
As long as they could Virtue Signal without consequence they were so very content to vote for Lefists and promote Leftism.
Now, they are experiencing the results. Let them suffer with it.
I believe they left City Hall after a couple hours. They followed Sawant in and followed her out.
