The first night in the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone that has formed in the wake of police giving up the week-long blockade of the East Precinct was rainy and peaceful and full of speeches from activists, agitators, poets, and socialist city council members.

“I guess whatever the **** we’re doing is effective,” one organizer identified as Magik said over a megaphone early in the night as police were still clearing the area. “They are going to move up. They are going to get everybody out of here and we are free to move through these streets and protest and march.”

“Yesterday we were on 11th and Pine. Today we have victory on 12th and Pine. They tried to stop us!,” another exclaimed.

The night brought tense moments but compared to the previous week of blast balls and clouds of gas and pepper spray, Pike/Pine was calm if not quiet — the county sheriff’s helicopter stayed circling overhead until midnight providing observations to SPD command on the ground and often drowning out speeches below. The only major reported conflict came when a TV news crew for the local Fox affiliate was temporarily chased from the scene and took up refuge in the nearby fire station.

I'll say THIS much for those on the hard Left, they keeping handing Conservatives templates to use during the next Progressive administration.  They don't seem to be mature enough to understand how the concept of precedence gives life to our legal system.  I think they may be so ignorant AND arrogant that they think only they can behave in such ways and the "Trumpets" can't dare use such methods.  

150 years ago, such behavior gave us the Civil War.  Hopefully, this time around it will only weaken the idiot Left in the Blue states.

While I do not want SPD gassing the neighborhood, I also do not want a bunch of armed vigilantes standing watch and freaking out over people they think are Proud Boys, though it does make the point very nicely how if you are profiled as a white male you are followed and harassed. Nice turnabout. Irony noted.

At what point does this reform police. They still seem to be hoping everyone finally just leaves, and I do not see the protesters as likely to leave anytime soon, so we’re at an armed impasse.

At least four groups all decided they were in charge at various times last night, Sawant grandstanded for off-topic causes of hers, she got shouted down, but then also got racially mocked by Raz.

Did anyone actually think waking up and moving the homeless into the safe zone was wise? I am guessing the homeless just wanted to be left alone to sleep or they’d move themselves. Kind of ironic our “Free Zone” still wants to control homeless peoples’ locations, hardly that much different than a Mayor Jenny sweep tbh.

What’s the plan, idiots. Stay there and camp forever? Won’t work. Force SPD to change? Likely won’t work in the short-term, and y’all want short-term fixes. Disband? Won’t happen.

A comprehensive budget plan and revised police plan will take weeks to get right. And might not even pass. Jenny might not resign, and that cop union guy is a violent little effer who has full support of his rank and file, so good luck with those a-holes, unless you just effing fire every damn one of them, and then replace them with …. what? The public isn’t going to just sign off on your whims for “Defund the Police,” as much as your revolutionary slogans might convince you that we would…

Ah, yes, the Left feeds on their own. Little wonder "The Mask" still cowers in his basement.

How do I feel about it.  Hmm.. 

I feel our mayor and our police department are derelict and incompetent.  I feel these protesters have no right to occupy and police anything, nobody voted them into authority.  I can't believe that an amount of protesters that would not even amount to a quarter of the people that the Seahawks pack into Century Link on a Sunday afternoon and certainly don't represent most of the people in the city have been bowed down to and allowed to do this.  

I'm disgusted. and depressed.

Raz simone, warlord of Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, is currently being dragged on Twitter claiming his Twitter was just hacked and anti-gay tweets from 10 years were planted to make him look bad.

LOL

Btw, never in the history of Twitter can you edit a tweet.

He's also just deleted them as soon as they resurfaced but the internet is forever.

The solution is easy. Create a wall around the area out of shipping containers, make it about 3 high. Weld/secure razor wire all across the top. Turn off power, water, and sewer. Wait a month.

After the Bundy occupation and the Michigan state capitol, I was wondering when we would start seeing guns pop up on the left side of protests.

Yup.  There is legislation to reduce magazine capacity in the works there.

As promised to @Kittens Are Jerks I made a detour on my walk home from work to get a look at the free zone. I did not get close enough to the barricades to verify the presence of weapons. I got about 50 feet from a barricade and cut north through Cal Anderson park. Social distancing is non existent and I saw few people masked up. There is music and it currently has the vibe of a block party. I’m just going to guess that between the zone and the park three to four thousand people with many coming and going. Looks like it usually does in June when there is no pandemic. Also of note, I walk a lot all over the city and have seen zero police in two days.

Image may contain: 3 people, text that says 'This photograph from 1938 shows the German National Socialists-the the Nazis-making Jews in Vienna kneel and scrub the streets. Nazi socialists used racial humiliation as a retaliation against perceived Jewish capitalist exploitation'

no wonder libs trying hard to erase the history, they want to repeat it, and not have anyone realize it,

Funny the Bundy's were brought up cause I came here to point out the absolute disgust one side had towards them (just a few of them) for holding up inside of a bird watching cabin in the middle of nowhere. iirc, towns 50 miles away and more were on lockdown due to the raving terrorist threat lurking around the corner along with a million reasons why holding up this obscure government property was wrong on so many levels. We got it from the media and the parrots on the left in this forum. Their beef was a personal one aimed at one government agency. They did not disrupt a major city, thousands of people, private property and businesses, extort or threaten the public. I don't think they even wanted to change anything except the outcome of their own court cases. Yes it got crazy when the public joined for a standoff but shlt if that didn't epitomize the looming threat of the violent right wing that was going to take everyone down with them. It drew the ire of every Democrat and public official across the country. Now these weasels we have today take whatever they want and the mayor's, govornors and even the police now just run and liberals are passing Seattle off as a block party and the riots as mostly peaceful. Wtf is going on? 

Aside, my uninformed take on the police in Seattle is that they probably assumed or knew the mayor wouldn't have their back and while they're here to protect and serve they aren't here to fight mini-wars. I don't know. Oversword, we need news from ground zero...

I'm afraid if they don't squash this quickly it's going to become the trend in cities across the country. Next up, the suburbs.
