The city of Seattle announced that it would turn a fire station into a community center for black residents after weeks of protests.
The city announced on Thursday that it would be turning over ownership of the fire station to the community in line with a list of demands given to the city from Africatown and other black activist groups.
"We at the City of Seattle understand the urgency behind making bold investments in the Black community and increasing community ownership of land in the Central District," the city wrote.

a community center may be a fine addition but NOT to replace a FIRE STATION, for goodness’ sakes
Forget Seattle, the politicans have ruined it!
it is lost cause
So to the rest of Seattle, who paid for that station, - F you! You do not matter
Are Politicians Allowed to GIVE AWAY TAxpayer Property to Political Activist Groups??
Since the rioters are deciding what statues to destroy and which buildings to burn I think pro-lifers should draw grafitti and destroy and burn PP offices and destroy Margaret Sanger statues.
I watch all the whites having guilt and feeling white priveledge BUT if they REALLY meant it they should give away their housing and give away their spot in colleges. Easy to stand around and tell others how they should show how much they support but when it comes down to it they don’t really mean it, If they did mean it they would give away their comfort so others can have them.
I would still love to see one big city disband all their police, including the Capitol police protecting the political class.
I would love to see the immediate result of no law and order anywhere to be found in the city.
I just would not want to be there. But what a brutal example it would immediately set for the rest of the nation. Here is hoping Minneapolis or Seattle does just that. Even just a large neighborhood. Instant lesson.
What is going to happen when there’s a fire within the insurgent zone? There is no treaty between the US and CHAZ for anything?
Maybe there’s nothing left to burn.
Hope all the buildings in the “Community” burn down.
You get the government you vote for.
Good and Hard!
Kill it before it multiplies..
“What is going to happen when theres a fire within the insurgent zone?”
The surrounding fire stations have to respond and put it out or at least keep it from spreading into the rest of the city.
These are not good optics. What will the Left do when conservatives in rural areas simply thumb their noses at the state and declare themselves autonomous zones too? I can imagine an area like Upper Michigan simply telling Whitmer to go to Hell and declare themselves the state of New Canada or Superior or something.
When they're Democrats, concepts like "laws" and "rules" never apply. KEEP UP!
Maybe Mr. Trump can divert some funds from the Southern border to wall off the Seattle nut zone.
I can only liken this to stage IV cancer.
