Seattle's 'occupied' protest zone was dismantled Tuesday a day after the second deadly shooting at the camp when its own security shot dead a black teenager. Demonstrators have occupied several blocks around the Seattle Police Departments East Precinct and a park for about two weeks. Police had abandoned the precinct following clashes with protesters calling for an end to police brutality. But by Tuesday morning crews were working to pull down the barriers.

Id also like to know what a 14 and 16 year old were doing driving around at 3 a.m.
Going to the public library to get a couple more books to read.
You mean their racist security guards fired 300 rounds at two innocent black teens??? Why is this not in the domestic news cycle, we hear about from the U.K...
Thanks for the video. Nice to see. Still all those blocks are “tagged” with graffiti everywhere.
Hope they just paint everything white. ;-)
Now that I think of it, I haven’t heard anything about the parents, or if they’ve even been interviewed. I guess that’s because the press is keeping this story hidden.
Amazing that all these BLM and Atifa people can take so much time off from their jobs to protest, start a new country, murder, rape, riot, loot and burn things. Must all have a nice benefit plan I’m guessing.
That’s because the local government semi-covertly supported them and actually had the same goals.
The problem for them (and why they had suddenly backed off on Friday) was that while they wanted to provide every excuse for the CHOP to succeed, their donors were screaming at them to fix it. They are trying to balance their radical base with their donors, and they were hoping (and were completely rigged up) for it to become Kent State II: Electric Boogaloo with the ‘atrocity’ lovingly captured from several angles in 4K or higher and surround sound. Trump didn’t fall into that trap and now they have a big problem on their hands.
“they had DECADES to get out of that dump”
Or, conversely, they had DECADES to change city leadership and make the place livable.

If any of them are college students, the schools will probably give them credits for their life experience of living in CHAZ/CHOP.
What happened to the ‘block party’, the ‘summer of love’????
“Or, conversely, they had DECADES to change city leadership and make the place livable.”
Very true. I read somewhere that 94 or 95% of the people there voted for Skunk Cabbage in 2016, and the vast majority of them are white. It’s THEIR PARTY, let them deal with it!

“CHOP gets the chop”
Damn! I was planning on sending my kids to The University of Chop! It was a great country, as long as it lasted.
^Did I really need that?
If the libs finally tear down this shithold today, then why the HELL didnt they do that right after it got started? How did they think squatters on private and public property would end?
sometimes, the only way to get the truly stupid to understand something is to wrap that something around something else that is sharp and jagged, and jam it up into the stupids repeatedly until they bleed out.
Meaning, some can’t learn by thinking or reason, they must be shown. And some can’t learn by seeing, they have to have it shoved up in them and then get beat down hard enough that they simply never open their idiot mouths again.
Very true. Insane leftists refuse to believe objective, concrete, real evidence. Why else would they believe in the fairy tale of communism which goes against all of human nature?
Of course, the left refutes that there is even an objective reality and there is no truth.
The dingbat mayor could have ended this horror before it stated by letting her police department do what they needed to do... as it was starting.
Any city electing a democrat mayor wants to be burned and looted.
now they will blame Trump for NOT doing anything
Actually, speaking as a former leftist and *very* small scale student activist, its because they have examples of it working. Which they do - see the shockingly collectivist Israeli kibbutz settlements/farms. What they fail to realize is that communism only works in certain very limited circumstances and cannot work as a national system of government.
Communism only works and is not a monstrous abomination if and only if the following conditions are met, as best I can tell from history and personal experience:
1. There is a clear threat that needs to be dealt with or a goal that must be achieved that everyone in the group agrees upon. This is how lifeboats typically operate, or stranded survivors on a desert island work.
2. Literally everyone must agree to the goal and what they are going to do to achieve it. If anyone significantly disagrees with the broad strokes, it wont work.
3. The maximum number of people that can be subject to this is maybe 1000, often far less. Again, everyone must freely consent and agree with the goals.
4. Once the goal is achieved, either the commune is dissolved or a new goal is agreed on by all participants.
Fail to do any of these and it flies apart.
