It’s almost as if some of the protesters, rioters and looters want to live in a dystopia typically reserved for sci-fi movies like it’s a preferred way to live. It’s as I’ve said recently, ‘some people just want to watch the world burn.’ Leave it to the left coast to lead the way in inching closer to the previously mentioned dystopia.
According to local reporter, the Seattle Police Department (SPD) is apparently prepared to abandon their East Precinct and basically leave it to the protesters - if you can still call them that.
KCPQ reporter Brandi Kruse tweeted on Tuesday about the SPD not announcing any plans to re-enter the East Precinct after removing valuable items from the location. Essentially, they’ve left the building to the protesters, who have named the area “Free Capitol Hill.”
Sources tell me @SeattlePD has no plan for what comes next with precinct. No plan to move things back in, etc., or reclaim area. Protesters have dubbed the surrounding blocks an autonomous zone, or more colloquially, “Free Capitol Hill.” #Q13FOX (Image taken Monday) https://t.co/h1bc7m6W4y pic.twitter.com/F7JurM8L2n— Brandi Kruse (@BrandiKruse) June 9, 2020
Kruse’s report came just a day after the SPD announced they would be reopening the streets in the area close to the East Precinct and “allow protesters to march past.” Once the valuables were removed and the windows boarded up, that’s when police opened up the area. However, Kruse noted in a video post to Twitter that SPD were nowhere to be found after protesters were allowed to basically surround the East Precinct.
I walked around the entire block East Precinct is housed on. I saw not one @SeattlePD officer. If that’s not abandoning, you tell me what is. #Q13FOX pic.twitter.com/CBtjJgIDZX— Brandi Kruse (@BrandiKruse) June 9, 2020
As The Blaze reported, it looks as if the protesters are claiming the area as theirs, and they “don’t take kindly to journalists.”
But I thought this was about “justice for George?” It would be almost laughable at this point if it weren’t so sad.
