  • Seattle PD abandoned precinct

    Anyone else heard about this? Seattle PD abandoned one of their precincts and residents set up a 16 block "autonomous zone" with barricades to keep the cops out.

    This article says locals are now being extorted for protection. I'm not familiar with this news publication so idk how accurate this is, but as far as the autonomous zone itself, it's been reported in other news so at least that part seems to be a real thing.

    Couldn't imagine a city worse than Portland or SF, but Seattle is taking the cake. Be interesting to see how long this lasts and if it's a sign of things to come.

    Not difficult to understand what is happening. This is a direct challenge to the current administration, done in such a manner that it cannot be ignored, but whatever the government response may be it will be portrayed as heavy-handed and excessive by the lame-stream media reporters.

    It is still an election year, and there are lots of people and groups who will pass up no opportunity to make bad news to affect the outcome of the voting.

    Time to track down the organizational structure and funding, then hold the puppet masters accountable.

      Go check out Seattle is Dying. It WAS almost a three way tie. Now Seattle took the lead and is going to win. NO WAY this happens in California. We had a proto-event during Occupy in front of Oakland City Hall, but that still had OPD doing foot patrols in the encampment.

      This is extra legal. This is open secession from the State of Washington. Inslee’s moment to shine. How serious is he about the rule of law. Contentious protests and riots are one thing but an unauthorized city, complete with its own police force? There are few examples to draw from.

        In a way this is actually how government came to be among men.

        Feudalism arose from the guy who swung a club best extorting protection money from everyone else. Within a few generations things were formalized... and not just middle ages Europe, all classic human civilizations essentially started that way: Sumer, Babylon, Egypt, Rome, the Greek city-states and hundreds more remembered only by historians if at all.

        ...and most started on the rubble of another civilization. We might be seeing that now.

            Yep. Chief of Police is the biggest Pusy on earth. Fire her. Strip her publicly of her badge. Spit on her as she walks the walk of shame.
            City council should be in jail right now, heading for butt rape prison or death penalty for fomenting an overthrow of the government.

              Not necessarily.

              If you havn't, I'd encourage you to read Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers. It's a scifi story hiding alot of political ruminations, including the failures of the US political and social systems and where he theorized it might go after we collapse. For a book written in 1959, it's amazingly prescient.

                Indication of media bias...the "autonomous zone" in Seattle is front-page on the Fox News website, but there's no mention of it on CNN (instead, we have stories about how Trump's upcoming rally is racist because it's on Juneteenth, how the feds used spy planes to monitor George Floyd protests, and Seattle's mayor deriding Trump).

                    Truckers are refusing to go to Seattle and anywhere else that the police are not in control of anymore. I guess they don't want to end up like Reginald Denny. Without food and stuff, I don't see these cities lasting too long.

                          But YOU allowed them to stay there. YOU forced your officers to move out of that precinct!!! This crap is all on you, Major Durkan and Governor Inslee!

                            They were waiting for DJT to intervene, so they could call him a Nazi... No action until they showed up at the Mayor's house... Guess she was "concerned"... Now the businesses in that "zone" filed a class action suit against the city for not providing protection...
                            As far as "rights" are concerned; I look at them this way... I don't tell you what church to go to, and you don't tell me what kind of firearm I can own...

                              This was this generation of socialists' Beer Hall Putsch. They will be back, having learned from their mistakes...
