Seattle Police Say ‘Autonomous Zone’ Now Has Armed Guards, Local Businesses Being Extorted

The following article, Seattle Police Say ‘Autonomous Zone’ Now Has Armed Guards, Local Businesses Being Extorted, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Things in Seattle are continuing to get sucked into a downward spiral of insane proportions as police officers in the area say that the self-declared autonomous zone now occupied by protesters have armed guards and that local businesses are being threatened with extortion.

But these are “peaceful protests” they continue to tell us. Right. So peaceful that an area of an American city has now been taken over by a warlord anarchist who is demanding local businesses pay a fee in order to operate within the area.

Folks, this is devolving into a serious situation very quickly. What’s more frustrating than anything is the lack of action being taken by the city’s mayor and the state’s governor.

Here’s more from Fox News:

“We’ve heard, anecdotally, reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area. This is the crime of extortion. If anyone has been subjected to this, we need them to call 911,” Assistant Chief of Police Deanna Nollette said on Wednesday.

Protesters calling to defund the police and make sweeping reforms to law enforcement tactics have declared a six-block region — spanning 13th Avenue past 11th Avenue, near Cal Anderson Park, and from East Olive Street to East Pike Street — the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ).

The region encompasses the SPD’s East Precinct, which was abandoned by cops on Monday following days of violent clashes between law enforcement and protesters in the wake of George Floyd’s death, as well as parts of Capitol Hill.

Police officers left the area hoping that this action would quell the violence that erupted in this portion of the city, which included numerous shootings. Law enforcement officers have been employing the use of tear gas and pepper spray to disperse large crowds.

While a number of the demonstrations being held in the autonomous zone have been peaceful in nature, with no reports of violence, police have stated armed guards are surrounding the perimeter of the area. Folks who live in that part of the city are being required to show an ID to prove they belong there before being allowed to enter.

Reports from anonymous officials also indicate a number of residents have been begging for outside help due to not being allowed access to their homes without their IDs.

Doesn’t this sound like a totalitarian culture? Just like the kind the left claims to be all about fighting against? They have become the monster they said they were fighting, which is precisely what we as conservatives tried to tell them all along.

Hopefully, there is a peaceful resolution to this matter so that no one else needs to get hurt.

The law needs to go in with guns a blaze. There should be DemonRATS on the streets dead. The rest will leave peacefully.


Are there people who live there? Are they safe? Do they want to leave? Is there looting? Has anyone spoken to someone living there? This must stop or we will have more of this.Bad enough that we have parts of cities taken over by Muslims.


Remember Rejneeshpuram, a peaceful hindu leader that took over the town of Antilope, Oregon in the 80’s. It too was invaded by 10’s of thousands followers that the secretary brought in armed guards later tried poisening the town counsels and government officials which then were raided by the government. Three years later the compound was freely emptied. Seattle reminds whats to become soon.
