I believe that the recent shootings Sad that saw a sixteen year old killed and a fourteen year old critically wounded signaled that the Zone needed to be cleared.

Shot by black CHOP Security. They didn’t get the BLM message?

I don't see anything saying who shot him, do you have inside information Hester? The DM? Redit? I see nothing locally.

It was definitely CHOP goons according to an eyewitness interviewed on one of the Youtube livestreams generally sympathetic to CHOP. The police weren't allowed in, and instead of an ambulance, they were carted to hospital in a car.

A CHOP friendly livestream? Why I'm shocked, I pictured you as more the Prntly type.

You are accusing me of being a Trump supporter? What are you basing that insult on?

Hester, no it doesn't mean that, it means that every time I post in this section I get hassled and I'm tired of it. It means that I think the apology should go both ways.

Barry, they cleared everyone out of the zone yesterday but all they did was push them into surrounding areas of the city. They haven't dispersed and there were many arrests throughout the city last night. This is far from over, there are rumors that there is a right-wing group of counter-protesters heading here on July 4 to violently confront the protesters. If that happens I'm afraid there will be a call from the Cuckoo's Nest in DC to activate martial law. His finger is on the trigger and he's just itching to pull it.

It's not a fun time to be in the Seattle area, I'm back to mostly staying home and puttering in my garden to keep my stress levels down.

I don’t think it was a really good way to do a demonstration and now innocent people are killed

I agree, in hindsight they should never have taken over a whole section of the city, that was a bridge too far. But is there ever a good way/time to start a revolution?

Being here, knowing this area and the people here (I grew up in a much more conservative part of the country and the people here are very different) the atmosphere to me was, in general, a big rowdy block party. One of my best friends who is black took her daughter and a friend down so they could experience it. She is the fiercest mother bear I know and would never endanger her babies, but she won't take them back down there now. It's been allowed by everyone involved to descend into madness and that's literally a shame. Now it's allowed the BLM movement to be hijacked by its enemies and cast in a bad light. Now Bozo has his excuse to move in and take over and that is a very real and frightening possibility at this point.

Chop was beyond ridiculous to begin with. Now people are dead. Reports of rape and other violence. The area is trashed. Mayor Jenny thought it was cute to coddle these people until they marched to her house and lawsuits were filed. I’m sure she’s not planning on paying a dime to clean it up and restore the area. Tax payers will. Thankfully some of the residents are suing.  I hope they sue everybody involved and win.  I can’t imagine having my home or business taken over like this. Oh and apparently choppers were trying to get back in last night, so we’ll see how long the police are allowed to control this.

Trump isn’t going to do anything. He’s limited by what he could do. It’s not his job. This is a states issue. Portland, Seattle, NYC, etc. and their democratic leaders can play with these violent, destructive children while their citizens suffer. They don’t want help.

One of the victims father was crying on the news last night. Very sad.

There have been a lot of legitimate and great protests for Mr. Floyd and for change. There is also a lot of violent, destructive BS that has nothing to do with him.

IMO it's very naive to think Trump is limited by anything but his monstrous ego. He has threatened to come in and clean up many times, he's just waiting for an excuse to do it without being asked.
