Seattle police have finally taken action to restore order after another shooting last night . Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan finally authorized police to clear out the lunatics in what is called the "Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone" (CHOP). Business owners have been run out. Residents have been looking for cover. Journalists have been assaulted. For the last few weeks these protesters have ran amok while Seattle officials sat around on their asses. It took people getting killed and much worse for the situation to be resolved. KIRO-TV Seattle spoke to the father of a teenager who was killed in CHOP:
SEATTLE —A teenager is dead, a second injured and their jeep is riddled with bullets inside the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, aka CHOP zone.
The latest shooting at the CHOP zone claimed the life of a16-year-old male, and left a 14-year-old critically injured.
Tonight, the father of another teenager shot and killed there last week says the CHOP zone must go.
Tensions rose when the victim's father spoke out because he is saying things the people here do not want to hear.
But now two teenagers, both black, have been killed here. And at least three others have been wounded.
"I ain't been sleeping,. You see my eyes. I've been crying. I'm trying not to cry on TV."
Horace Lorenzo Anderson stood in the embrace of Andre Taylor, a leader in the local anti-police violence movement.
Anderson was there to shine a light on the murder of his 19-year-old son and namesake, who was shot and killed inside the CHOP zone last weekend.
He says the zone should go.
"This doesn't look like a protest to me no more," said Anderson. "That just looks like they just took over and said we can take over whenever we want to."
Our friend in Seattle Christopher Rufo who writes for City-Journal has been inside CHOP and has been giving us his first hand account of the filth, chaos and destruction left behind. Hear John & Ken talk to Chris about what appears to be the end of CHOP, for now...
