Remaining group of BLM/ANTIFA Chazistanians open fire on car of teenagers killing a 16 YO and seriously injuring a 14 YO.   Over 300 rounds were sprayed.  Just goes to show that black lives dont actually matter to BLM or ANTIFA.

The clips, taken in the early hours of a Monday morning, show the bullet ridden vehicle in the moments after gunfire broke out

Witnesses had said the car had driven at speed through the zone. Medic Jackson said he recognized the two boys as youngsters who had been around the CHOP zone in the days prior to the shooting.

A second video shows people running through barricaded streets past tents. One person confirms there are people wounded in the zone as others shout out.
 
Neither victim has been named and no suspects are in custody. Police say the crime scene ‘had been disturbed’ and have pledged ‘enough is enough’ but not offered any details on if or how they plan to return to the area.

DailyMail.com has contacted both the police and the Mayor’s office on how they plan to deal with the area going forward.

Homeowner who bore an AR15 to defend his family and home from violent BLM/ANTIFA mob speaks out for first time.  Oh, and one thing they dont mention in most news outlet, he is a lawyer who has specialized in helping struggling people, many from minority groups, and they moved back into city from suburbs to help save declining neighborhoods.  Now radical prosecutor is trying to destroy them.

Leave it to the Chazistanians to make the case justifying police having heavy machinery. 

Also, it is very telling how BLM calls for their white rioters to throw themselves in front.  No arm-in-arm with them, it really Is "only BLM".

Father of one of the kids killed by BLM ANTIFA speaks out.  Noone ever reached out over the death of his son.   He was just a pawn whose life didnt matter to them or the politicians there.  Hospital on orders wouldnt even let him see his dead son for a week.  Shameful behavior, Seattle!

Seattle reportedly spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on reeducation 'camps' for white city workers. The segregated events were dubbed "Training on Internalized Racial Superiority for White People".  White employees were told they must give up “comfort,” “guaranteed physical safety,” “expectations or presumptions of emotional safety,” control "over the land,” and “relationships with some other white people.”  Also, they were told they had to give up “niceties from neighbors and colleagues,” “the certainty of your job,” and “accepting jobs and promotions".  “Internalized Racial Superiority,” was defined by perfectionism, individualism, intellectualization, and objectivity.   :jaw-drop:

https://www.foxnews.com/us/seattle-chop-segregated-training-session-white-supremacy-physical-safety.amp
Seattle held 'segregated' training session on 'undoing whiteness,' encouraged staffers to forfeit 'guaranteed physical safety'

The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on "undoing your own whiteness" in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request.

The session took place on June 12, as protesters took part in the so-called "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" in the Capitol Hill district.
...
The name of the initial sender was redacted. Rufo claimed, “the City of Seattle has refused to provide the names of the diversity trainers, the budget for the program, or the video of the session.”
...
One handout distributed in the session reportedly declared how “racism is not our fault but we are responsible." Another said White staffers must give up “the land” and their “guaranteed physical safety” in order to be an “accomplice” for racial justice.
...
“We’ll examine our complicity in the system of white supremacy – how we internalize and reinforce it"
...
Those who attended the session were also shown a datasheet titled “Assimilation into Whiteness,” which claimed to document how those of Arab, Jewish, Finnish, German, Italian, Armenian or Irish descent still classify as White.

Seattle police union leader: 'Socialist' city council holding 'reasonable majority' hostage

"Socialists" on Seattle's City Council are holding a "reasonable majority" of residents hostage by threatening to slash police spending by 50 percent, a union leader said Saturday.
...
"If our reasonable community across this city, our state, and more importantly, our nation don't wake up ... crime will rise significantly, and over half, if not more, of the police jobs in our city will be eviscerated," Solan said.

"This is coming into your neighborhood if we don't wake up and stop this socialist threat immediately."
...
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told "The Jason Rantz Show" on Friday that the council members who support defunding police don't have a real plan.

"All they have shown us is that they want to reduce the budget by 50 percent. I haven't seen any real planning in that. And, the real tragedy of doing that is that we will lose 1,100 employees," she said.
...
"But sadly, this socialist city council controlled by a certain group of individuals that have the entire council, if not more importantly our ignored majority, hostage by their political antics, must be stopped."

Unbelievable.  These BLM activists are psychopaths. I mean that in the clinical sense: "Psychopathy is traditionally a personality disorder characterized by persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, and egotistical traits."

“They [are] talking about ‘Black Lives Matter,’ but black lives don’t matter because black people [are] trying to kill other black people. It needs to stop,” she added.

“I hope they catch the bastards and put them under the jail cell.”

BLM/ANTIFA held "mostly peaceful" counter-protests where they distributed bats to beat clergy members, many African American, who were calling for peace and the end of killing police officers.  Police were ordered not to use force.

“They said they did it peacefully. How do you do it peacefully when you have somebody swinging a cane?” Herbert said..

Police unions who previously endorsed Biden are switching to Trump after Biden's push to defund police.  Now Biden is trying to change position but noone buys it.

On Wednesday, Trump received the endorsement of the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO), which praised his “steadfast and very public support” for law enforcement. NAPO did not endorse a candidate in the 2016 election but endorsed former President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Mother of Seattle CHOP victim files wrongful death claim against city

Donnitta Sinclair says her son, 19-year-old Lorenzo Sinclair, would be alive today if the city shut down the CHOP zone right away. He was gunned down in the zone in June.

“And I believe the city let me down, they let my son down, they let the community down,” Donnitta Sinclair said. “And they need to be responsible.”

Attorney Mark Lindquist says the city created a dangerous environment by allowing the zone to flourish.

“The city abandoned this area. And number two: the city had no safety plan in place for this abandoned area,” Lindquist said.
...
With all the barricades and protesters, first responders struggled to get into the area and assist Lorenzo Sinclair. Instead, volunteers rushed him to the hospital where he late died.

“I felt like he was alone,” Donnitta Sinclair said.

No has been arrested in his death.

NYT destroys liberal narrative of Seattle’s 'Autonomous Zone,' describes 'harrowing' scene for businesses

The Times spoke with a local business owner who had heard the area had a “block party atmosphere,” which Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan famously said on CNN.

“But that was not what he saw through the windows of his Seattle coffee shop. He saw encampments overtaking the sidewalks. He saw roving bands of masked protesters smashing windows and looting,” the Times reported, noting the man saw “young white men wielding guns.”

The area was celebrated by liberal lawmakers and pundits until it turned deadly, even though President Trump and pundits on the right had declared the area unsafe from the beginning. The protest coincided with nationwide calls to “defund the police,” but local business owners don’t seem to think that’s a good idea any longer.

“Business crashed as the Seattle police refused to respond to calls to the area. Officers did not retake the region until July 1, after four shootings, including two fatal ones,” the Times reported, noting that local businesses owners are now suing the city.

Some truckers are refusing to deliver to cities that defund the police. While I'm doubtful it will be widespread it's worth noting that there could be some supply chain and distribution hiccups caused because it's being considered a safety issue.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best retiring amid discord with City Council

Hours after Seattle police Chief Carmen Best announced her retirement, Mayor Jenny Durkan lashed out at the City Council Tuesday morning following its decision Monday to defund her department by 14 percent.
...
"It's not about the money, it's about the respect," said Durkan, who said the council tellingly did not cut the salaries of any other municipal department heads or its own staff. "It was infuriating and deeply disappointing."

Durkan's remarks came after Best announced her decision to the city during an 11 a.m. news conference in which she thanked the mayor, her staff, the city and its residents.

New York is collapsing with the defunding of the police.

https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/08/16/nypd-investigating-dozens-of-shootings-as-violent-weekend-continues/amp/
NYPD Investigating Dozens Of Shootings During What Was An Extremely Violent Weekend

Fear is growing in neighborhoods across New York City as gun violence climbs.

The NYPD said Sunday over the previous 24 hours there had been at least 20 shooting incidents, resulting in 23 people injured and five deaths.

Year to date, police said the number of shootings are way up. As of Aug. 15, there have been 888 shooting incidents. In 2019, there were about half that amount — 488 incidents.
...
Just Saturday, an off-duty correction officer was killed. The 28-year-old was leaving a party in Queens, and overnight a 47-year-old man was gunned down in Brooklyn. He was a father of two, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported.
...
Also Saturday morning, police said the suspect seen in a surveillance vieo shot and wounded a man in Grand Central Terminal, on a subway platform. A bullet struck the arm of the 40-year-old victim.

It has been a summer of gun violence. This weekend, police also put out newly obtained video from earlier shooting cases. One is from the morning of Aug. 2 on Lenox Avenue in Harlem. It shows two men firing at a car.

And new video shows a man firing several shots into a home along Bryant Avenue in the Morrisania section of the Bronx on the night of June 15.

Former NYPD lieutenant and criminal justice professor Darrin Porcher blames the defunding of the police and failed leadership from the de Blasio administration about how to arrest suspects as main reasons for the continued violence.

“The city is under siege. We’ve had multiple shootings just over this weekend alone. We’ve far eclipsed the number of shootings for the last two years in this year, 2020, alone,” Porcher told CBS2’s Lisa Rozner. “We need to have that manpower in place and what it’s going to require is a greater amount of overtime.”

So this is interesting.  in response to defunding, police are retiring in droves and moving out of these cities and states to freer areas.  This means they dont pay taxes to the places they have retired from yet those places have to accelerate pension payments.  Net effect is that the police exodus will likely end up collapsing the cash flow of all these places.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/chicago-police-retiring-twice-normal-rate-report.amp
Chicago police are retiring at twice the normal rate: report

Police in Chicago have been retiring at twice the usual rate recently, a trend that some officials believe is likely to continue and could leave the city streets short of officers.

At least 110 police officers are retiring in August and September, and retirements in 2020 are projected to be higher than the past couple of years, said Michael Lappe, vice president of the board of trustees for the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago.

“That’s unheard of,” Lappe told the Chicago Sun-Times. “We’re seeing double the average number of retirees each month.”
...
Chicago 9th Ward Alderman Anthony Beale said he noticed the recent trend during a meeting last week.

“From the time I walked in to police headquarters to the time I left, which was about 35 minutes, there were nine or 10 officers who approached me and said they were leaving,” he told the paper. “Every person who walked past me said, ‘Hey, Beale, I’m out of here.’"
...
“We’re way short of officers now, and I’m afraid, as people go to retire, we’re going to be even further short of officers on the street,” he continued. “We’re working officers double-time, triple-time. It’s only a matter of time before officers are totally burned out.”

Protests, skirmishes, and riots within the past couple of weeks in Chicago have seen at least 30 officers injured, according to reports.
...
Lappe added that a sustained wave of retirements in Chicago could potentially harm the financial health of the pension system, adding that 850 more retirees were drawing from it compared to those working on active duty.

The first step in ending "systemic" racism in policing is apparently driving all minority police officers from leadership positions. Makes perfect sense. Maybe we need a Black Jobs Matter campaign?

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best steps down, claims cuts left her 'destined to fail'

Carmen Best, the first Black police chief in Seattle's history, left her post Wednesday, saying on her way out that the city council's police budget cuts had put her in a "position destined to fail," according to a report.
...
"I believe 100% that they were putting me in a position destined to fail. Cutting a police department that already had low staffing numbers, that was already struggling to keep up with the demand," Best told NPR on Wednesday. "How are we going to provide for adequate public safety in that environment?"

"The mischaracterization and the politicization of the actions that I took after being informed of Mr. Prude's death is not based on facts, and is not what I stand for," he added.

Minneapolis City Council alarmed by surge in crime months after voting to defund the police
Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides


Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.

Council members pressed police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents' calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. "That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.”
...
Arradondo said about 100 officers have left the department or have taken a leave of absence since the start of the year, which is more than double the typical number of officers who either step down from the department or are inactive that year, MPR reported.

In July, the council took several steps toward dismantling the city's police department, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and reallocate it toward the health department to hire "violence interrupters" who are intended to defuse potentially violent situations.

But don't worry, the city council is at little risk of violence.  The police that are left, I'm sure are guarding the  areas that the council members live in.

Until when one of them is a trojan antifa terrorist and uses the position to bypass security. They better wake up because just like the French revolution, they are second on the list for a close haircut.

Judge rules recall petition against Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant can move forward

King County Superior Judge Jim Rogers ruled Wednesday afternoon that a recall effort against Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant can move forward.
...
The recall charge, filed by petitioner Ernest Lou, alleged Sawant had "used her position in violation of the law or has recklessly undermined the safety of others"
...
(1) Delegated city employment decisions to a political organization outside city government.

(2) Used city resources to support a ballot initiative and failed to comply with public disclosure requirements related such support.

(3) Disregarded state orders related to COVID-19 and endangered the safety of city workers and other individuals by admitting hundreds of people into city hall on June 9, 2020, when it was closed to the public.

(4) Used her official position to encourage attendees at a June 28, 2020 rally to illegally occupy the Seattle Police Department East Precinct when the city was trying to de-escalate violence in the area.

(5) Led a protest march to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s private residence, the location of which Sawant knows is protected under state confidentiality laws.

(6) Encouraged protestors to occupy the Seattle Police Department East Precinct and helped create the Capitol Hill Occupation Protest (CHOP) Zone which turned into a violent criminal environment that negatively impacted local businesses and residents.
