CHAZ Responsible for 525% Spike In Seattle Crime

New cement and wood barricades bear the name CHOP, Tuesday, June 16, 2020, inside what has been named the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone in Seattle. The city put the barriers in place Tuesday in hopes of defining an area where emergency, delivery, and other vehicles can travel through the area while still preserving space for protesters, who have been there since police pulled back from near the department’s East Precinct after recent clashes with people protesting the death of George Floyd.

CHAZ is the ultimate result of Democratic leadership and its addition to Seattle’s crime rate shows it.

It was all socialist fun and Marxist games according to Democrats and the media, but the truth is that the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone or “CHAZ” (which was renamed to CHOP because reasons) was a filthy hub of degenerate criminals who lived up to their moniker.

According to the New York Post, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan decision to order the city’s police force to withdraw left the handful of city blocks open to whatever crime these would-be revolutionaries wanted to do. The result was far from surprising:

Durkan’s emergency order booting protesters from the six-block cop-free zone makes mention of the “narcotics use and violent crime, including rape, robbery, assault, and increased gang activity” within the CHOP since it first emerged in early June.

June 2 to June 30 saw the 525 percent jump in crime compared to the same period last year.

It includes “22 additional incidents, in person-related crime in the area, to include two additional homicides, 6 additional robberies, and 16 additional aggravated assaults (to include 2 additional non-fatal shootings),” Durkan’s order on Tuesday says.

Luckily, CHAZ has now been demolished and the peace restored. It was a swift turnaround decision from Durkan that finally saw to it that the trigger was pulled on its closure. What’s more, this came after Durkan had been dragging her feet on closing it, even after the homicides.

What caused her to finally send in the police?

CHAZ had turned their attention to Durkan’s home and marched en masse to her doorstep with City Councilmember Kshama Sawant according to KING5-TV:

Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant joined a large group of protesters outside the CHOP zone who marched to Durkan’s house on Sunday afternoon.

One of the demonstrators said, “We came down to Jenny Durkan’s mansion to bring the demands of the movement and of the families who have been impacted by police violence to her doorstep as she seems to not be able to hear our demands any other way.”

So even after the deaths, the crime, and the hostile takeover within her own city, Durkan moves to act only after these people she deemed to be innocent protesters showed up at her own doorstep.

Eventually, reality catches up.

The Seattle Mayor, and many Democrats for that matter, will go far in attempting to paint what are clearly violent criminals as innocent freedom fighters acting in the good of society, but oftentimes do that while keeping these people they’re cheerleading at arm’s length.

Everyone from Hollywood elitists in Beverly Hills to Democrat politicians all seem to have the tenacity to tell you that all of these people they supposedly champion are making this world a better place but when these same people begin entering into their territory, they begin demanding that they stay away.
