Seattle Police Shut Down 'Lawless' Protest Zone

On Wednesday, Seattle police turned out in force at dawn in the city’s “occupied” protest zone.

Associated Press reports that Seattle mayor ordered the space cleared following two recent fatal shootings.

The “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” zone was just east of Seattle's downtown.

The group had occupied several blocks around a park for about two weeks after police abandoned a precinct station during the George Floyd riots.

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.
