SEATTLE On June 8, Seattle police frantically loaded what they could from the east precinct onto trucks and cars. Within hours, they boarded up and abandoned the station. That night, left-wing protesters from Black Lives Matter and Antifa declared ownership of the six-block neighborhood in the middle of the Pacific Northwests largest city. They named their new territory the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ. No laws or rules applied here except for one: No cops allowed.
During five undercover days and nights in the zone, I witnessed a continuing experiment in anarchy, chaos and brute-force criminality. In order to avoid being exposed as a journalist several reporters have been barred or expelled I slept and showered outside the zone. (Those inside have no showers but they do have portable bathrooms.) I took meals, and most of my water breaks, elsewhere because I was reluctant to remove my mask and risk being recognized. Every day I entered the zone twice through its semi-porous borders once in the early afternoon, and again after sundown, staying until the wee hours.
Crime has surged inside and outside the zone.
On Saturday morning, a shooting erupted that left at least one person dead and another injured near a border checkpoint. Police were reportedly met with resistance when they tried to get to the victims, who apparently were then taken in private cars to the hospital. Cops made it into the zone to gather shell casings and evidence, some reports said, as police in riot gear stood at the border.
On Thursday, police arrested Robert James after he left the CHAZ. He is accused of sexually assaulting a deaf woman who was lured inside a tent. The same day, former city council candidate Isaiah Willoughby...

Wow, this guy is incredibly brave. God Bless him!
Good question. No MSM covering the “peaceful protesters”?

Let the communist Kyles in Chad kill each other off. Police should just stay out. Why investigate any crime? These Maoist geniuses have it all figured out.
Andy Ngo was the guy who got hit head split open during one of the antifa muggings last year.
Nuke it from space, its the only way to be sure.
A female reporter from the local Fox affiliate tried to visit but was run out of there.
I feel like going there just to kick ass
An actual journalist (gasp).
Two shot, one fatally in insurrectionist occupied Seattle. Cops barred by menacing mob from the scene.
Brave of her to go and try and report, but, she was lucky to get out of there without being hurt.
Keep voting Democrat.
What will happen if demands arent met? Jaiden Grayson, a young black woman who has developed a large following in CHAZ, told a filmmaker: Respond to the demands of the people or prepare to be met with any means necessary. Its not even a warning. Im letting people know what comes next.
I await with anticipation the arrival of this little commie psycho and her buddies from the (snicker) John Brown Gun Club, in any red state middle class area or small city, say Tyler or Palestine Texas. I only hope she and her thug buddies get all they have coming.
He is the guy who got beat up in Portland and put in a hospital for reporting on the Lilly White Anarchist.
” Cops made it into the zone to gather shell casings and evidence, some reports said, as police in riot gear stood at the border.”
Shameful that they didn’t go inside. Utterly shameful.
