(Tea Party 247) – Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has finally seemed to come to her senses and ordered CHOP/CHAZ to come to an end. This decision has come after a total of five people have lost their lives in the zone. Had the Mayor acted decisively and quickly when the area was initially taken over by far-left radicals, these people, two of which were teenagers, might still be alive.
Unfortunately, Durkan was more concerned with optics and playing politics to care about the reality of the situation in CHAZ. While she claimed it was to be Seattle’s “summer of love” and the zone was just full of peace-loving, hippie-like characters with a message of equality, the truth is CHAZ was full of violent thugs, anarchists, and radicals with a list of extremist demands.
In short, the people of CHAZ were domestic terrorists and they never should have been allowed to hold Seattle hostage for a day, let alone the weeks that they did.
Early Wednesday morning, police issued the order for protestors to disperse from the area. Around 5 am Wednesday, those who had taken over the CHAZ area were given 8 minutes to clear out or be arrested. Several arrests have been made as some protestors resisted the order to leave and chanted for the police to leave.
Not only have people been needlessly killed but the residents of the CHAZ area have also been made victims and forced to live in this mayhem being abandoned by city officials led by Durkan.
One Seattle resident spoke out after the police successfully cleared out the anarchists.

The CHAZ area, as this resident pointed out, had no purpose other than anarchy. Whatever message they were trying to send was lost thanks to the constant crime and violence that plagued it from the beginning, though the only message that seemed to be conveyed was that of being anti-police.
As The Gateway Pundit reports:
There was another shooting in the CHAZ/CHOP “autonomous zone” of Seattle around 3 a.m. on Monday morning — this is the fifth one since rioters took over the area.
The Seattle Police Chief confirmed later Monday morning that both victims of the shooting in CHAZ/CHOP were black males.
One victim, a 16-year-old died, the other, a 14-year-old is in critical condition.
There have been two confirmed murders in CHAZ/CHOP in the last week.
Sure, Mayor Durkan finally took action but not before lives were lost. Hopefully the founders of CHAZ see how foolish the entire thing has been. When they took over the area it was supposedly in rebellion of the system that claimed the life of George Floyd because “black lives matter” but in the end even more black lives were lost.
The criminals who took over this section of Seattle and held residents hostage for weeks should be held accountable for their terroristic behavior and Mayor Durkan should be charged with murder for allowing this entire thing to go on.
At the very least, now Seattle residents have seen just how much their mayor cares about them.
