Seattle police retake stationhouse in CHOP, arrest multiple protesters following Durkan orders

Police Chief Carmen Best said "enough is enough" after fatal shootings in the area


Seattle police have retaken the East Precinct stationhouse after clearing out the protest area known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP, making more than a dozen arrests after Mayor Jenny Durkan declared the gathering an unlawful assembly following two fatal shootings.

Police issued the order to disperse around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday, telling protesters to leave within eight minutes. At least 31 protesters were arrested for failure to disperse, obstruction, resisting arrest and assault, police said.

“The CHOP has become lawless and brutal,” Best said earlier Wednesday in a written statement. “Four shootings – two fatal – robberies, assaults, violence and countless property crimes have occurred in this several block area.”

Best said that it was the job of police officers to protect and serve the community, adding that the clearing of the protest would not mark an end to the department’s engagement with protesters.

“We must continue our efforts to build trust and redefine our roles as guardians in our city,” Best said.

They become lawless and brutal back when they picked up the first brick and lit the first fire.  Is Chief Best  wacko or is he ignorant of the law?

"Best said that it was the job of police officers to protect and serve the community"

There's that phrase again!
