A Death in Antifastan

Gosh, it seems criminal gangs are operating in the cop-free zone:

Seattle police are investigating a shooting that left one person dead and another critically injured inside Seattle’s so-called “CHOP” or Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone.
The 911 calls to report shots fired in Cal Anderson Park, near the intersection of 10th Ave. and E. Pine Street started coming in at about 2:19 a.m. Saturday, according to city of Seattle officials.
At 2:25 a.m., Seattle Fire Department medics responded and were awaiting Seattle police to secure the scene before going into the CHOP, which is standard procedure for the fire department. Seattle police arrived at about 2:28 a.m. but weren’t able to get inside the CHOP zone.
Police tried to find the shooting victims but were met by a “violent crowd” that prevented the officers from safely accessing the victims, according to a release from Seattle police Saturday. . . .
Police later discovered both shooting victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center in private vehicles by CHOP medics.
The first victim, a 19-year-old man arrived at Harborview at 2:42 a.m., according to a Seattle fire dispatch log provided by city officials. The man died from his injuries, police said. The second victim, a 33-year-old man, arrived at Harborview at about 3:06 a.m. and remains in critical condition as of Sunday afternoon. . . .
Organizers of the CHOP sent a statement to KING 5, that said in part no one official was denying Seattle police or fire entry to the area.
“No one within the CHOP denied entry to PD within any organizational capacity. Officers deciding on their own not to enter an area is not the same as being denied entry,” read the statement. “We as safety teams are peacekeepers, not police. We do not want to be homicide detectives, or CSI, or accessories to this murder. We still want what we wanted from day one, justice for all.”
In the statement, organizers also said the people involved in the shooting may have a previous history and “the situation escalated because of gang affiliations,” however, the involvement of gangs in the shooting has not been confirmed by police. . . .
Maryellen Donnelly lives across the street from where the shooting happened and heard the gunshots. She said she’s begged lawmakers to intervene for everyone’s safety.
“We need help, we live here, we need to not be ignored, there needs to be a dialogue. I think the initial protest has gotten lost,” said Donnelly.


See, there’s no point trying to help liberals, who will believe any lie, so long as the liars speak in the rhetoric of “social justice.”

What, exactly, what “the initial protest” about? An anarchist mob started rioting in Seattle because of what happened in Minneapolis? Because police in Seattle are racist? There was no actual grievance in Seattle, so the “protest” had no real purpose. It was simply an excuse for anarchists and other criminals to assemble and commit violence. The city’s mayor simply ordered the abandonment of a police precinct and surrendered an entire neighborhood to this dangerous mob, and we are surprised that gang-bangers are settling scores in the “autonomous zone”? We are surprised that this neighborhood has become a lawless jungle?

Elect Democrats, and this is what you get.
