City crews remove some barriers from Seattle protest zone (Biden rally winds down)

SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle city crews used heavy equipment Tuesday to remove makeshift barriers around the city’s “occupied” protest zone following two fatal shootings in the area.

Demonstrators dragged couches and other items to replace the structures. But those were largely gone later Tuesday.

**SNIP**

Seattle police Assistant Chief Adrian Diaz said the large, makeshift barriers would be removed in incremental steps to allow traffic to move through portions of a road that had been closed off.

“So far, you know, everything is peaceful this morning, so that’s a good sign,” Diaz told The Seattle Times.

Cement barricades that remained in front of the Seattle Police Department East Precinct building Tuesday were fortified by protesters with chunks of concrete and tarps.

**SNIP**

Protesters say they should not be blamed for the violence in the area. People continued to add artwork, flowers and candles at a memorial for the 16-year-old on Tuesday.

Police Chief Carmen Best has said the shootings are obscuring the message of racial justice promoted by protesters.

Wait until the shooting starts?

The armed security CHOP radicals who shot two balck teenagers last Sunday night/Monday Morning will likely attempt a last stand at the SPD precinct building.

As a national deterrent, I hope that SWAT takes them out publicly with a great deal of prejudice.

I’d hate to see what kind of stains are on those couches.

Translation: The murder of white people is the goal of "racial justice" promoted by the protestors.

I’m sure there will be some babies born in the next 9 months with the names of Chop, or Chaz.

The city crews should repave those streets with those communist pigs underneath.

Unless the rioters and occupiers are all arrested and thrown in jail, there is no possibility of justice. They must be held accountable for stealing and destroying property, assaulting and extorting people, and unlawful sequestration.

Obviously none of this will happen, and the mayor is not going to be held accountable for the events that she allowed and facilitated.

“Demonstrators dragged couches and other items to replace the structures.”

Were those the People’s couches, or will the previous owners of said furniture be reimbursed by the People’s Republic of Chaz for their use and ultimate loss?

I bet they were told...”If you like your couch, you can keep your couch.”
