Paradise Lost: Another Fatal Shooting in CHOP, This Time By CHOP Armed Security, 16-Year-Old Boy Killed

Seattle, WA — Seattle’s mini-city in the middle of downtown isn’t faring so well.  We could point out that their ‘police’ have killed more people per capita than the police departments of any city in America, but that would legitimize the tantrum those children are throwing.

Seattle Police reported another fatal shooting inside the six-block ‘Autonomous Zone’ known as Capital Hill Occupied Protest or CHOP.  This is the fourth shooting in ten days.

But this time, the bullets came from CHOP’s own armed ‘security forces.’  Police said that around 3:00 on Monday, a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old were shot — the 16-year old later died at the hospital.  The 14-year-old is in a different hospital and is listed in critical condition.

The 16-year-old arrived at a hospital after being transported by Seattle Fire Department medics, but didn’t arrive to the hospital until 3:30 am.  The 14-year-old was transported in a private car.  No word on whether the delay in reaching medical care impacted their chances of surviving the shootings.

What prompted the shooting isn’t entirely clear.  Eyewitnesses said that the two boys pulled into Cal Anderson park in a white Jeep SUV, firing guns into the crowd.

That’s when CHOP’s armed security shot into their Jeep.

The Jeep the two boys were in when the shooting happened.

“Detectives searched the Jeep for evidence, but it was clear the crime scene had been disturbed,” the police statement said.

Leftists Can’t See The Reality In Front Of Their Faces

Meanwhile, Seattle’s radical leftist mayor, Jenny Durkan, continues to blunder onward.  Durkan was a former United States attorney under President Barack Obama and thus is so committed to her leftism that even when it blows up in her face, she won’t abandon it.

No doubt we’re going to hear how the left’s pipe dreams weren’t really tried in CHOP, and thus we need to keep trying to make the entire country a nasty trash dump like Seattle has become.

Seattle’s Police Union head,  Michael Solan, commented on the situation, saying, ““If we cannot hold an unruly mob from taking over another precinct, and if cities across this country take away those less-lethal tools that the police use to effectively do their job safely, we’re in serious trouble.”

Now, we don’t love police unions because they make it hard to fire bad cops, but in this case, Solan is dead on.

This is the America the leftists want!  Only the rich — who can afford private security — are going to be safe in this police-free, violent future.
