Tensions flare in Seattle’s autonomous zone

As the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) rages on, things have only grown more tense.

In the video below, two activists are seen screaming and tussling as one of them claims the other knocked over a barbeque. Tempers flare as the men argue in the street. At one point, one of the activists throws water in the other man’s face, saying, “Now we’re even.”

This behavior is one of many examples proving a pattern of violence, not peace, seen at CHAZ. Since early June, there have been multiple incidents of violence at the occupied protest.

More severe examples include a shooting which occurred on June 21, leaving one teenager injured and another dead from his injuries. Officers received reports of the incident but were unable to reach the victims when a violent crowd blocked access to the scene. A second shooting occurred just one day later.

Summer of love, right, Mayor Durkan?

    Why is someone walking with a child when it is such a dangerous area? I thought Chad was being dismantled a couple days agoo.

    A community with self rule will not last. It will deteriorate into mob rule. Organized crime will take hold. The strong will eventually subjugate the weak, chaos will ensue, and the place will eventually become a HELL HOLE.

    Give a Hood Rat some authority, this is what you gonna get. Hear him screaming- would you do that to a cop ? I’m the community manager, just before he sprays water in the kids face.
