Seattle Police SURRENDER East Precinct To Armed Far Leftists, 7 Block Radius Declared “Free Zone.” The police claim this is a deescalation tactic and that may be but it really seems like this is semantics.
Seattle PD abandoned the department after claiming they wouldn’t and the far left moved in to create a 7 block area called the Capitol Hill Free Zone.
It does seem a bit like these people are just LARPing but many are now taking up arms and wearing body armor. There are calls for armed guards to protect the barricades and local business have been forced to “disaffiliate” from the city.
In other jurisdictions Prosecutors are outright refusing to charge rioters and protesters for crimes committed giving favorable law enforcement based on ideology.
While we can mock these people it is important to note that this could be the start of something more dangerous if something isn’t done soon.
