Seattle Mayor Will Shut Down Cop Free Zone

On Monday, Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan said the police were to reestablish a presence in the area known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

The CHAZ was set up in the wake of protests surrounding the death of George Floyd.

Three people were shot, one fatally, in a spate of violence around the area on Saturday and Sunday.

"The night-time atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents," Durkan said.

Seattle Mayor Says AG Barr's Call To Charge Her A 'Chilling' Abuse of Power

For months, Seattle has dealt with nightly protests. Some have become violent. Some have become deadly. Some protesters camped out and occupied the area outside Seattle police's East Precinct building in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Protesters dubbed it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. And according to CNN, US Attorney General William Barr was not happy about it. Despite White House threats, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan refused to allow federal troops to move the protesters out.
