While Seattle’s idiot Mayor, jenny durkan and useless Governor, Jay Inslee, continue to allow anarchists, Black Lives Matter radicals and street thugs to hold part of Seattle hostage, there has been another murder there.
From Lisa Baumann’s article for the Associated Press:
A 16-year-old boy was killed and and a younger teenager was wounded early Monday in Seattle’s “occupied” protest zone — the second deadly shooting in the area that local officials have vowed to change after business complaints and criticism from President Donald Trump.
The violence that came just over a week after another shooting in the zone left one person dead and another wounded was “dangerous and unacceptable” police Chief Carmen Best said.
“Enough is enough,” Best told reporters. “We need to be able to get back into the area.”
That’s it? A second murder, residents and businesses continue to be held hostage, and the best the Chief of Police can do is tell us “We need to get back into the area”?
That’s some helluva Chief of Police, let me tell you.
Here’s a question, Chief Best (what an inappropriate name that is): Why did you ever LEAVE the area? Why did you allow these anarchists and their pals to “occupy” even one block of Seattle for even one day?
Seattle has already been hit with one lawsuit by a group of residents and business owners. There is no doubt at all that there will be others.
And when they are adjudicated, what will Mayor durkan say? “Gee, we did our best”?
Will Governor Inslee at least admit he knows this happened (at one point he pretended he didn’t).
And will Police Chief Carmen Best assure the people who are suffering through this gross abdication of governmental and law enforcement responsibility that the police were allowed to do their jobs…
…which, apparently, in Mayor durkan, Governor Inslee and Chief Best’s world, means they were told to stay out of the way and gave the streets over to a bunch of anarchists, Black radicals and thugs, whose main talents seem to be breaking and defacing property, making demands and screaming the “F” word as many times as possible.
Seattle is a disaster on steroids. And with this trifecta of fecklessness in charge, it’s hard to see things getting much better.
