RE: Antifa and BLM in Seattle
If you’ve been reading today, you know Seattle has become a warzone. Anarchists are throwing homemade bombs, mortars and chemicals at police. Fires have been set, peoples homes/businesses have been destroyed/ruined.

Quote:Seattle rioters seen damaging, looting stores; police say fire sparked at precinct, officer hospitalized

Marching demonstrators damaged and looted buildings in downtown Seattle Sunday before turning violent, resulting in the arrest of two people and leaving a police officer hospitalized, police said.

In addition, police said Sunday evening the demonstrators had broken out several windows of the East Precinct, then threw a device into the lobby that ignited a small fire.

The fire was later extinguished and no injuries were reported, police said.

The demonstration, which started between 2 and 3 p.m. near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Pine Street, resulted in crowds blocking an intersection, a photo posted on Seattle’s DOT traffic channel showed. Click here for more on our top story.

- Rep. Jayapal ducks question on political impact of CHOP zone in Seattle district
- Seattle mayor plans to move 911, other functions outside police department
- Seattle police chief says 50% budget cut would be 'tragic decision' and is politically motivated

Cops keep getting injured, but won't return lethal force. These terrorists are just being empowered by permissiveness. If they don't respect the law, make them fear the law.







Republican control = ARREST / PROSECUTION / JAIL

Democratic control = JUSTIFY, ENCOURAGE / ASK FEDERAL GOVT FOR MORE MONEY

It really is that simple.

Send in the 82nd Airborne and tell them anyone that throws an incendiary device, brick or otherwise in their direction is a toe tag volunteer.

One of my best friends for life was 82nd. It would be over in a half hour tops.

My partner says that since I am a gringo, i could get away with it, even here in El Paso, but I believe the EPPD would shoot me in the foot by accident.

Then again, they took Crucius peacefully, so hmmm.....

RE: Antifa and BLM in Seattle


Quote:SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. - A group of about 200 protesters went to a quiet neighborhood that belonged to Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best this weekend, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred on Saturday night. The Sheriff Adam Fortney was notified around 8:30 p.m. and by the time deputies arrived, most of the protesters were already dispersing or already gone.

“When the people showed up to my house, it certainly felt very personal about me,” said Chief Best who was not home at the time. “It really does seem like a mob mentality, and bullying, to intimidate a public official.”

Jamie and Whitney Roulstone live on the quiet street and said 30 to 40 vehicles were wrapped around the corner.

Neighbors buckled down and used their own vehicles to block the protesters from moving further down the street where Chief Best’s home is located.

“It was not peaceful. They were here to intimidate. Scare people. Scare children. There were children out there and they were asking them what schools they went to. They were yelling the most horrible things you’ve ever heard in your entire life,” said wife Jamie.

“You’re coming to a small community. We see all these peaceful protests getting hijacked in Seattle and Portland and other areas,” said husband Whitney. “It just takes one Molotov cocktail, takes one person trying to light something on fire, one firework going off. Then we now have a neighborhood in crisis. We feared that more than anything, was having a crisis here in our neighborhood that we ultimately didn’t deserve.”

In a statement, Sheriff Adam Fortney said in part:

I spoke with Chief Best on the phone who was not at the residence at the time. I assured her that the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office would deploy whatever resources were necessary to protect her, her family, and her property. I am pleased to report this group decided to disperse and there were no other incidents last night.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office has been supportive and accommodating to all peaceful protests that have occurred in our jurisdiction. With that said, protestors targeting one individual’s house is a bullying tactic that will certainly require an extra patrol response to ensure every resident in Snohomish County can feel safe in their own home, with their loved ones, no matter what they choose to do to make a living. If this group or any other group wants to protest the government, we would ask they do so at a government building and not at any individual’s private residence.

Chief Best had a message for both elected leaders in Seattle as well as the group that showed up to her neighborhood.

“I would hope elected officials, and specifically, our City Council would loudly, boldly and assertively denounce this kind of behavior,” said Chief Best. “I’m not a person who can vote or has a specific say in the outcome of the public budget issue. So being there really is not going to make a difference in the outcome.”

The Roulstone’s said Chief Best attended a neighborhood meeting on Sunday to apologize and thank her neighbors.

“She couldn’t believe what the neighborhood did for her. She apologized that this even came here. I told her don’t apologize. We need to apologize to you that this is even happening. it’s unacceptable,” said Jamie.

“We admire her. We see what she’s doing. She’s doing a great job. That this has happened, on her behalf here, we as a neighborhood are rallying behind her,” said Whitney.

On Sunday night, Chief Best made public a letter addressed to the Seattle City Council. In part she wrote:

These direct actions against elected officials, and especially civil servants like myself, are out of line with and go against every democratic principle that guides our nation. Before this devolves into the new way of doing business by mob rule here in Seattle, and across the nation, elected officials like you must forcefully call for the end of these tactics.

The events of this summer were initiated in a moment of grief and outrage over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and so many other Black and Brown people suffering at the hands of injustice. All of us must ensure that this righteous cause is not lost in the confusion of so many protestors now engaging in violence and intimidation, which many are not speaking against.

RE: Antifa and BLM in Seattle
Quote:A new poll spells absolute disaster for the Seattle City Council pushing to defund the Seattle police by 50%. Only 32% back the reckless council plan. The vast majority of Seattle voters support only a modest cut, and favor the Police Chief’s decision for what happens.

The poll by EMC Research, a firm normally favored by left-leaning clients, was conducted between July 22-27 as the debate to decimate the Seattle Police Department heated up.

No matter the spin, there’s little good news in this poll for anti-police politicians and fringe community activists. Still, the council readies a plan to cut SPD funding. But they do so risking their seats on the council.

While some media outlets picked up on the poll for showing 53% general support for defunding the policy, the details reveal it’s not what activists or the council had hoped for.

Only 32% support the council’s approach to cut the funding to the Seattle police by 50% despite loud, dangerous riots and protests pushing the idea. That’s only 11% higher than voters, at 21%, saying they don’t want any cuts to the SPD at all.

A full 43% of voters support the mayor’s approach, which has been best defined as a 5% cut, though the mayor’s office revised the plan for between 10% and 20% defunding. This approach just moves peas around a plate: It just shifts money around without actually providing substantial cuts to services or personnel from the SPD.

This isn’t an anomaly poll.

KING 5/Survey USA found “53% of adults surveyed said they opposed or strongly opposed proposals to defund police departments, and a little more than one-third said they supported or strongly supported the proposals.”

An Elway/Crosscut poll released over the weekend, surveying voters statewide, shows an astonishing 73% oppose the defunding of police. When it’s broken down by party identity, 96% Republicans oppose and 51% Democrats oppose.

The council isn’t trusted
What’s especially telling in this new poll is that the Seattle City Council isn’t trusted to handle any defund plan they end up adopting.

With a whopping 61% support, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best is seen as most trustworthy to “making fundamental changes to SPD while protecting public safety.” Best has been an outspoken critic of the defund plan, calling it the “height of recklessness.”

“I think the word plan is rather loose here. They haven’t got a plan. All they have shown us that they want to reduce the budget by 50%. I haven’t seen any real planning in that. And the real tragedy of doing that is that we will lose 1,100 employees. That’s 50% of our total workforce because most of our budget is made up of our personnel costs and it would be a tragedy,” Chief Best told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.

Second most trusted to fundamentally addressing policing issues is Mayor Jenny Durkan. She, too, has called out the council’s plan.

The Seattle City Council comes in a distant fourth in trustworthiness of tackling police reform (47%).

When it comes to trusting the council on policing, it seems increasingly like the council’s recent behavior is alienating constituents.

West Seattle Councilmember Lisa Herbold recently promoted the idea of exclusively firing white cops, on the basis of their race, to address concerns with her 50% defunding scheme. And during a protest, Councilmember (and mayor hopeful) Teresa Mosqueda said a protester was justified in his threat to murder Seattle officers.



Seattle is heading in the wrong direction
Given the rash of recent riots and violent clashes between fringe protesters and Seattle police, it’s not shocking that the city is seen as heading in the wrong direction. And the numbers are shocking.

In May, 59% of those polled said Seattle was headed in the right direction. In July? Only 34%. A whopping 53% of those polled say the city is headed down the wrong track, an alarming uptick from 32% in May.

The theme of the march as "Walking for Those Who Can't," and organizers were calling for police funding reforms and an end to Seattle public schools' relationship with the Seattle Police Department.

Rantz: Activist group says Seattle cops targeted them. Video shows otherwise

Council ignores the voters
As of now, the council is publicly ignoring the will of the people. They are pushing ahead with their plans to defund Seattle police. A leaked draft of a resolution — from an unknown councilmember — shows how fringe the plan could go, with an end goal of abolishing the department.

A media campaign by the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild (SPOG) has generated voter support. It earned over 100,000 signatures against defunding the police in just four days. The ads, which can be heard on KTTH radio, target Socialist Councilmember Kshama Sawant. She just released a “plan” to cut the police department by 50%, leaving the details to the chief. This, of course, isn’t much of a plan at all.

Meanwhile, pressure mounts on freshman Councilmembers Andrew Lewis and Dan Strauss. Then-candidates, Lewis and Strauss supported more police, a position that helped earn them seats on the council. Since then, however, they’ve flipped. Both councilmembers have been unresponsive to constituent emails expressing concern.

One Queen Anne constituent of Lewis, for example, was desperate for a response from Lewis. The councilmember was holding a Town Hall on public safety, but didn’t include any guests from the Seattle Police Department. The constituent asked why the police perspective was missing from the mid-afternoon Town Hall.

“When one of your constituents poses a reasonable question to you, it is your duty as an elected official to offer a timely, reasonable answer,” he wrote.

Two emails in total, he only received a form letter ignoring his question. Can Lewis and his colleagues ignore the Seattle constituents on defunding?

Which means the council doesn’t have the support to do what they planned to and now may be trying to figure out how to backtrack.
