Seattle CHOP barriers being cleared by city crews, cops at scene

Seattle Department of Transportation crews on Tuesday began removing concrete barriers marking the entrance to the area protesters are calling the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP.

A crew used heavy machinery to remove the concrete barriers at 10th and East Pine Street. Seattle Police officers were also at the scene to assist crews in case protesters intervened.

Protesters almost immediately began to construct a makeshift barricade to take the concrete barrier’s place, moving furniture, trash cans and plywood into the road to continue to block traffic into the area.

As of Tuesday morning, no plans had been set in place to remove the other concrete barriers in front of the abandoned East Precinct, according to Seattle Police Department Assistant Chief Adrian Diaz.

Monday marked the fourth shooting near the CHOP zone since the occupation began three weeks ago.

A 16-year-old boy was killed and a 14-year-old boy remained hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting on 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine around 3 a.m.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best appeared on camera later Monday to urge protesters to leave the CHOP zone, saying "Enough is enough here."

"This is something that's going to need to change," Best said. "We're asking that people remove themselves from this area for the safety of the people. If they care about people, they're going to have to try to help us to make it safe."

Best said the shooting resulted in the second death of an African-American victim "at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter.”

Horace Lorenzo Anderson, 19, was shot and killed on June 20 when a shooting rang out around 2:30 a.m. near Cal Anderson Park on 10th Avenue and East Pine Street inside the CHOP. A second man was injured in the incident.

The fatality prompted Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, to announce last week that the city would begin efforts to dismantle the occupied zone, but the barriers and tent encampment in Cal Anderson Park remained largely in place throughout the day Monday, KING-TV reported.

A 17-year-old was also shot in the arm near Cal Anderson Park on June 21, and a man in his 30s was shot in the calf near the CHOP zone on June 23.

City efforts to dismantle the CHOP were thwarted Friday when protesters laid down in the street to block Seattle Department of Transportation crews and heavy machinery from removing barricades around the occupied zone. Crews left after two hours without removing the barricades.

The encampment in Cal Anderson Park has become more difficult to manage, drawing violence and a large homeless population since the onset of the occupation three weeks ago.

Organizers on Sunday said they’re seeking to move into the abandoned East Precinct, where most protest leadership have already taken up shelter, as part of an effort to secure their best bargaining chip in convincing city officials to act on police reform and other demands, the Seattle Times reported.

Negotiations between protesters and city officials over the weekend proved unfruitful, despite Durkan reiterating on Sunday that she outlined a plan earlier in the week to review the Seattle Police Department’s budget and allocate funds to invest in black communities.

“In recent weeks, I’ve had more than a dozen meetings with organizations, Black leaders, and protesters. Right now, I am at City Hall doing the work,” Durkan tweeted.

The police would intervene and arrest all the bikers, saving BLM.

Just like what will happen when war is in the streets. Blacks attack white people and police stop white people from protecting themselves.

This is what is wrong with our nation ---the bad behavior is encouraged and rewarded while anyone trying to stop the insanity is ridiculed and punished
the inmates are indeed running the asylum

we laugh at the french and other european countries but we are about as bad

The concept of police only works if the people allow it.

That may be coming to an end or temporary hiatus

I suppose your not aware that the Seattle PD does not set the policy. Its coming from the "Mayor and Governor "
Yeah...ummm, about that.

The cops couldn't even ensure that city workers could do their job.

Sorry

You got nothing.

Ohh, I'm sure they have orders for minimal contact, but aren't even meeting that bar.


Maybe it's some kind of cop-out?

Oh ok! So when the Mayor and Governor say "stand down" as you hear virtually all day long with police tactics. That's the police fault. I'm sorry , but you have nothing, zero. Research it. Don't be angry at the messenger, Do your research before faulting others pal.

You are aware that at this point in the area it’s painfully obvious the cops will be tossed under the bus if it goes wrong, and the cops have a choice to follow those orders. Right?
Para Military organization there. When ordered to stand down, you stand down. Of course they will be thrown under the bus, that's why there no police action. The Mayor wants the "summer of love" You see her quotes or no?

Mayor & Governor want everyone to get tired, look for a hot shower and a clean toilet - and go home.

It ain't gonna happen. The "Revolution" calls. Along with continuing non-interference by the police in their "lifestyle."

These humans WANT to live like certain porcine chattel. It is what they do. And now they're in "pig heaven."

Enough food and drugs and support to keep going "for the revolution." It's couched in nascent Marxism but is a longer term SLOTH which has been hallmark of certain humans since spirits were given out - and lost.

Meanwhile the Mayor & Governor don't have the cojones (figurative) to do what needs to be done to clean it out.

Look for the ongoing stalemate to continue. Look for the media to lose interest - CHOP/CHAZ whatever is no longer feeding the hate and in what contraction has happened is no longer center stage.

But broken spirit humans will continue to be piggies. And CHOP is the new slum in Seattle.

Well they apparently TRIED that and got ushered away.

She apparently found some loose vials of testosterone lying around and distributed them to the front line cops (or took their chastity belts off) and they are now doing the job they were hired to do.

FINALLY. "Significant Deteriorated" Yuh. About three weeks ago.

Lives could have been saved if she acted earlier. Maybe put memorials to them in front of her mansion and she can look at them for the remainder of her tenure?

I think they finally realized their plan of having President Trump bring in the military to clear
them out so they could cause another kent state wasn't going to happen, and with the kid getting
executed the other night the state was finally forced to act. I heard the video from when those kids were shot.
Someone says your not dead yet? then a few seconds later 1 gunshot is heard.
