Journalist Claims Seattle's CHOP Zone Turns Into "The Purge" At Night
Seattle's "peaceful" seizure of six blocks continues to show just how weak these liberals are when it comes to upholding the law. These CHOP protesters are trying to make it out like they have some sort of police prohibited utopia but when the lights go out and the public eye is off of them and they are far less than civil. Journalist Ngo found this out while staying after dark to see how they really are.
"During the day, he said, it could be considered peaceful if one ignored boarded-up businesses or graffiti calling for the murder of police. But when the sun goes down, the "criminal elements come out," Ngo noted.
"Unfortunately, last night that was made very clear, when one person on a microphone and a loudspeaker was able to sic a mob of probably more than 100 people to chase down this business that was several blocks away. They just all descended on it. It was pure anarchy," Ngo remarked.
"They pushed up against the fence and all rushed in. It could have been extremely violent," he recalled. "Fortunately it wasn't, according to what I heard from the owner and staff. They had detained one of the comrades of this camp for alleged arson and theft. And, because of that, all [of] his comrades came to help get him out."
"[The] police never came," Ngo added.
A man on a microphone sicced a large mob on the Car Tender autoshop near the Seattle “autonomous zone.” They broke down the fence. The owner said he apprehended an arsonist before all his comrades showed up to try & free him. Police never came. #CapitolHillAutonomousZone #antifa pic.twitter.com/hf4lYzm2rF

But the CHOP Zone's days may be numbered as they have agreed to give up three blocks in order to trade for concrete dividers as opposed to the wooden ones they put up. Seattle recently passed laws making it so police will no longer be able to use crowd control devices and banned chokeholds. So now if a crowd were to go after the police and they felt their lives were in danger they are down to stun guns when it comes to non-lethal devices to disperse a crowd. Those in the law enforcement field in Seattle should probably start looking for more accommodating locations.
