There were supposedly 12k complaints about the way SPD handled the riots, so SPD decided they would let them have it.  Good for them.

'They've given us the precinct.' Seattle Police backs away, and protesters take back Pine

The Seattle Police Department announced Monday afternoon that the barricade near the East Precinct -- where officers have used pepper spray, tear gas and flash bang grenades on demonstrators for eight days -- would be removed.

During a press briefing, Police Chief Carmen Best said Seattle Police would try something new.

“We’re not going to evacuate or abandon the East Precinct," she said. "We will be hardening the East Precinct facility by boarding up the exterior windows, and applying fire retardant to the building exterior and installing fencing."

Best said demonstrators should be able to walk freely around Capitol Hill.

“This is an exercise in trust and de-escalation,” she said.

On Monday evening, a protester addressed the crowd: “They’ve given us the precinct, and we’ve got to be smart, and we have to work together. And we have to remain peaceful, and we have to remain strong. This is the message that we are trying to deliver.

“That if they give us the precinct, we’re not going to try to destroy it. We’re not going to do what they want us to do.

“We’re not going to do what they want us to do. We’re going to take care of it, because this is our street.”

The change comes after more than 12,000 complaints about the police response to the mostly peaceful demonstrations. Seattle Police has said officers have had to use pepper spray, tear gas and flash bangs because demonstrators had hurled bottles, rocks and used incendiary devices against police.

City council members on Monday said it was unclear how many of these had actually been used, citing evidence of one candle thrown.

Many people are also calling for defunding the department.

Later in the afternoon, Omari Salisbury depicted the scene on his livestream. He described it as a “view we haven’t seen for eight days.”

Salisbury, a journalist, said that earlier in the day, Seattle Police were building a fence across Pine Street. A few hours later, they stopped working on the fence and began moving out of the East Precinct.

“We saw moving trucks in and out,” Salisbury said on his stream. “Officers moving bags. I know that the city is calling it a reduction in footprint. It’s impossible for me to say there’s nobody in this building, but I don’t think that there’s anybody home.”

He said they had expected a fireproofing foam to be sprayed onto the East Precinct, but that no such fireproofing appears to have happened.

Salisbury continued: “Pine Street, for the first time in eight days, is open.”

But lest anyone feel that the city would sleep easy tonight, Salisbury said that many people were wearing bulletproof vests because of credible threats made from white supremacists.

The threats felt much more real after the shooting on Sunday, when 31-year-old Nikolas Fernandez sped his car into the crowd and shot a man, 27-year-old Daniel Gregory. Gregory was in satisfactory condition at Harborview.

As the police left, the protesters claimed the area and barricaded it themselves.

“We are seeing quite a few bullet proof vests out here,” Salisbury said on his stream. “A lot of protesters out here before, not armed, who are now armed. It’s a different situation.”

And then he signed off to get a bulletproof vest for himself.

Around 10 p.m., two other livestreams showed protesters wearing body armor. One protester called for people with guns and know-how to go to the barricades, in case there was a threat from white supremacists known as Proud Boys.

FWIW, most of the Proud Boys aren't even white.

It is really quite stunning how the U.S. media have avoided reporting on a group of activists in Seattle who have taken over part of the city surrounding the abandoned East precinct police station. No-one is being allowed inside what they are calling a “Free Capitol Hill Zone” or “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ). The activists have barricaded the streets and will not let any journalists or city officials inside their declared zone of control. The region expands across six blocks as outlined by the occupying groups

 

 

^^ This as of 10:30 this morning. tom.

Now they are making demands.  I say let them keep it.

Antifa Releases List of Demands After Taking Over 6 Square Block Section in Seattle and Setting Up Armed Security Watch — List Includes Reparations and Ending Police Dept.

The antifa terrorists are advocating for “folks with firearms” to take shifts defending the barricades.

The Antifa group set up barricades at the border and certain areas for dining and public speech.

Andy Ngo reported on this yesterday.

On Tuesday “Free Capitol Hill” the antifa “Autonomous Zone” released its list of demands from the Seattle and Washington State governments.

 
The list includes reparations, ending the police and free stuff — pretty much what you would expect from a bunch of illiterate leftie kids.

Via Medium:

Given the historical moment, we’ll begin with our demands pertaining to the Justice System.

  1. The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform, we demand abolition. We demand that the Seattle Council and the Mayor defund and abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus. This means 100% of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police. At an equal level of priority we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ICE in the city of Seattle.
  2. In the transitionary period between now and the dismantlement of the Seattle Police Department, we demand that the use of armed force be banned entirely. No guns, no batons, no riot shields, no chemical weapons, especially against those exercising their First Amendment right as Americans to protest.
  3. We demand an end to the school-to-prison pipeline and the abolition of youth jails. Get kids out of prison, get cops out of schools. We also demand that the new youth prison being built in Seattle currently be repurposed.
  4. We demand that not the City government, nor the State government, but that the Federal government launch a full-scale investigation into past and current cases of police brutality in Seattle and Washington, as well as the re-opening of all closed cases reported to the Office of Police Accountability. In particular, we demand that cases particular to Seattle and Washington be reopened where no justice has been served, namely the cases of Iosia Faletogo, Damarius Butts, Isaiah Obet, Tommy Le, Shaun Fuhr, and Charleena Lyles.
  5. We demand reparations for victims of police brutality, in a form to be determined.
  6. We demand that the City of Seattle make the names of officers involved in police brutality a matter of public record. Anonymity should not even be a privilege in public service.
  7. We demand a retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community.
  8. We demand decriminalization of the acts of protest, and amnesty for protestors generally, but specifically those involved in what has been termed “The George Floyd Rebellion” against the terrorist cell that previously occupied this area known as the Seattle Police Department. This includes the immediate release of all protestors currently being held in prison after the arrests made at 11th and Pine on Sunday night and early Saturday morning June 7th and 8th, and any other protesters arrested in the past two weeks of the uprising, the name Evan Hreha in particular comes to mind who filmed Seattle police macing a young girl and is now in jail.
  9. We demand that the City of Seattle and the State Government release any prisoner currently serving time for a marijuana-related offense and expunge the related conviction.
  10. We demand the City of Seattle and State Government release any prisoner currently serving time just for resisting arrest if there are no other related charges, and that those convictions should also be expunged.
  11. We demand that prisoners currently serving time be given the full and unrestricted right to vote, and for Washington State to pass legislation specifically breaking from Federal law that prevents felons from being able to vote.
  12. We demand an end to prosecutorial immunity for police officers in the time between now and the dissolution of the SPD and extant justice system.
  13. We demand the abolition of imprisonment, generally speaking, but especially the abolition of both youth prisons and privately-owned, for-profit prisons.
  14. We demand in replacement of the current criminal justice system the creation of restorative/transformative accountability programs as a replacement for imprisonment.
  15. We demand autonomy be given to the people to create localized anti-crime systems.
  16. We demand that the Seattle Police Department, between now and the time of its abolition in the near future, empty its “lost and found” and return property owned by denizens of the city.
  17. We demand justice for those who have been sexually harassed or abused by the Seattle Police Department or prison guards in the state of Washington.
  18. We demand that between now and the abolition of the SPD that each and every SPD officer turn on their body cameras, and that the body camera video of all Seattle police should be a matter of easily accessible public record.
  19. We demand that the funding previously used for Seattle Police be redirected into: A) Socialized Health and Medicine for the City of Seattle. B) Free public housing, because housing is a right, not a privilege. C) Public education, to decrease the average class size in city schools and increase teacher salary. D) Naturalization services for immigrants to the United States living here undocumented. (We demand they be called “undocumented” because no person is illegal.) E) General community development. Parks, etc.

We also have economic demands that must be addressed.

  1. We demand the de-gentrification of Seattle, starting with rent control.
  2. We demand the restoration of city funding for arts and culture to re-establish the once-rich local cultural identity of Seattle.
  3. We demand free college for the people of the state of Washington, due to the overwhelming effect that education has on economic success, and the correlated overwhelming impact of poverty on people of color, as a form of reparations for the treatment of Black people in this state and country.
  4. We demand that between now and the abolition of the SPD that Seattle Police be prohibited from performing “homeless sweeps” that displace and disturb our homeless neighbors, and on equal footing we demand an end to all evictions.
  5. We demand a decentralized election process to give the citizens of Seattle a greater ability to select candidates for public office such that we are not forced to choose at the poll between equally undesirable options. There are multiple systems and policies in place which make it impractical at best for working-class people to run for public office, all of which must go, starting with any fees associated with applying to run for public office.

Related to economic demands, we also have demands pertaining to what we would formally call “Health and Human Services.”

  1. We demand the hospitals and care facilities of Seattle employ black doctors and nurses specifically to help care for black patients.
  2. We demand the people of Seattle seek out and proudly support Black-owned businesses. Your money is our power and sustainability.
  3. We demand that the city create an entirely separate system staffed by mental health experts to respond to 911 calls pertaining to mental health crises, and insist that all involved in such a program be put through thorough, rigorous training in conflict de-escalation.

Finally, let us now address our demands regarding the education system in the City of Seattle and State of Washington.

  1. We demand that the history of Black and Native Americans be given a significantly greater focus in the Washington State education curriculum.
  2. We demand that thorough anti-bias training become a legal requirement for all jobs in the education system, as well as in the medical profession and in mass media.
  3. We demand the City of Seattle and State of Washington remove any and all monuments dedicated to historical figures of the Confederacy, whose treasonous attempts to build an America with slavery as a permanent fixture were an affront to the human race.

don't let deliveries in and wait for them to starve.

Apparently they local residents are okay with it.  12k complained about how SPD handled the riots and there hasn't been any outcry online.  

So now it's gets interesting.  Eventually, criminals will see easy pickins, so they'll start taking advantage of the situation.  Something will have to be done about that.  Someone will be unhappy about what is done.  

Then they'll have to form a government, which will require taxation.  Someone will have to determine a "fair share" for every business and residence.  I suspect taxation will be determined by "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs".  

Either that or after a few days they lose interest and go home.  I suspect when they decide to pull out, they'll take a lot of other peoples stuff with them.

I just don't see this ending well.  I don't see SPD retaking the area, but ending without violence (everybody losing interest and going home) is about the best thing they can hope for.

Just like politicians, once you have complete control over other people you don't want to let go. 

Power and control are infectious and lead to the desire to continue with even more control. 

Those with the least ability to manage power, are the worst to wield it.

Color me impressed ont he resolve of these jackwagons.

The politicians are conveniently out of sight for all of this.

The same politicians that were sending SWAT teams to barber shops and nail salons a month ago.

Pandering to the criminal element is quite the problem. At this point they are all afraid of what they have to do, and have allowed things to go beyond a reasonable level. You can bet anyone and everyone they think they can lay blame on will be dished out in the near future when they decide which side of the fence to fall on. They won't be the problem at all.

Antifa Organizer in Seattle’s “Autonomous Zone” Begs For ‘Vegan Meat and Soy’ to ‘Keep Area Operational’ After Homeless People Take All Their Food

Antifa domestic terrorists set up an “autonomous zone” in six square blocks in Seattle this week.

On Tuesday “Free Capitol Hill” the antifa “Autonomous Zone” released its list of demands from the Seattle and Washington State governments.

The list includes reparations, ending the police and free stuff — pretty much what you would expect from a bunch of illiterate leftie kids.

The “police free zone” is a perfect utopia of free love, free food, free water and no police!

Until the anarchists ran out of food.

One of the Antifa organizers in Seattle, an 18-year-old lesbian anarchist who wants to “abolish whiteness, capitalism, and civilization,” begged for vegan meats and soy after the homeless people they invited in took all the food.

“The homeless people we invited took away all the food at the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.”

“We need more food to keep the area operational. Please if possible bring vegan meat substitutes, fruits, oats, soy products, etc. – anything to help us eat.”

It's getting interesting.  See the Tweet.

 

https://noqreport.com/2020/06/10/chaz-in-seattle-has-a-warlord-in-charge-and-jay-inslee-supposedly-knows-nothing-about-it/

CHAZ in Seattle has a warlord in charge and Jay Inslee supposedly knows nothing about it

 

Jay Inslee has no idea what's going on, allegedly, while the biggest city in his state is being taken over bit by bit.

It must be nice being Washington Governor Jay Inslee. He can hold press conferences and get asked questions about events that are two days old, claim to know nothing about it, and mainstream media won’t press him on it. That’s exactly what happened today when Inslee was asked about “CHAZ,” the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle. But Fox News host Tucker Carlson called him out on it after the fact.

A six-block section of Seattle that includes the East Precinct has been taken over by Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and communists in general who have occupied the space. They control the precinct. Police officers are not able to enter, having abandoned their base. Local businesses are reportedly having to pay fees to those in charge of the new mini-country in Seattle. And now, there’s a “warlord” in charge of security and pretty much everything else. Rapper Raz Simone and his armed crew are the only law in this area.

This is clearly a dangerous situation, but most involved want desperately to keep it peaceful. It isn’t just for their own safety but also to make sure the “cause” of Black Lives Matter is promoted. If there are no incidents, they will be able to claim that living free from police and without the “false” constraints of capitalism can happen in America. The problem with their narrative is that they now have a version of “law enforcement,” though one that engages in a different set of laws, and they also have participated in capitalism throughout this communist excursion away from reality.

Between Jay Inslee’s incompetence, the city government’s complicity, and the participants themselves having their own sets of rules and measures of enforcement, it’s no wonder mainstream media has been virtually silent on this major event transpiring right before our eyes.

 

Emphasis mine:

ZnXBmNyL_normal.jpg

.@SeattlePD Assistant Chief Deanna Nollette says the agency wants the East Precinct back in service and is interested in discussions that will lead to that. She also said:

-Armed guards at barricades around “Autonomous Zone” have no legal right to demand ID’s from people. 1/2

 

-Added that there have been reports that businesses inside the zone are being forced to pay a fee to operate there. Nollette said that amounts to extortion and businesses subjected to it should call police. #Q13FOX

interesting excerpt:

The irony of the situation, that protesters first built a wall, then requested guns, all in the lily-white Capitol Hill neighborhood, did not escape some.

I suspect someone like Bill Gates will send food to the CHAZ.

More to come

Consider the source.

https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-antifa-mob-planning-to-take-over-more-seattle-neighbourhoods

BREAKING: Antifa mob planning to take over more Seattle neighbourhoods

Following the surrender of the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department to an Antifa mob and the occupation of Seattle City Hall, a source on the ground in Seattle says that other police precincts around the city are preparing to be the next targets.

Regarding the autonomous zone established by the Antifa-led mob, the source—whose anonymity we are protecting—says, "They bar media from entering and screen people coming in. They are walking around fully armed. Talking about making their own currency and making their own flag. SPD is talking about abandoning the west precinct now.

"West precinct has the 911 call centre. This is just like the Occupy movement. Soon we will have feces and drugs everywhere and people getting assaulted and raped in the encampments.

"They've been relocating everything quietly while the focus has been elsewhere. They know that it's only a matter of time before these fools have to direct their issues back on the police. Since yesterday, I haven't seen a single police office or vehicle downtown. Even when they took over city hall, there were no signs of PD at headquarters across the street."

The main concern according to the source is that the SPD West Precinct also houses the city’s 911 call centre. There have been reports of sensitive material and equipment being moved out of the West Precinct. Walk-in lobbies of all precincts are shut down as local officials appear to be conceding handing over more of the city as well as police precincts to Antifa.

Police officers were stationed outside of the West Precinct on Wednesday, and two of them provided comment to The Post Millennial under the agreement that we conceal their identities.

"Antifa are extorting money and businesses in the Capital Hill Zone for protection money," said one of the officers who was previously stationed at the East Precinct.

"Those running this Capital Hill Zone are employing stop and frisk to anyone who walks through, and shaking down businesses for $500 for protection," added another officer.

Before the coronavirus outbreak and before the riots, the Seattle Police Department was operating at 60 percent of capacity. Officers were laterally transferring to other municipalities, taking early retirement and resigning.

Candidates were seeking employment in other cities and academy classes did not have enough recruits to offset the losses. In exit interviews the main reason given was that they were demonized and not supported by elected officials. A recent raise as part of contract negotiations did nothing to stem the exodus.

Understaffed, overworked, disparaged and now abandoned by elected officials, officers are now talking about resigning in the midst of the crisis.

The Post Millennial reached out to the Seattle Police Department for official comment on reports that they are preparing to close more precincts but they said that they "cannot comment on Seattle police tactics."
