Right, all of you cops, conservatives, and libertarians can put your hands down. In fact, why don’t you take those hands and give each other a pat on the back for your prescience. Actually, I’m not sure what we’d be congratulating ourselves for because the violence was so utterly predictable.
I see the Iron Lady has been busy lobbing moron grenades into the discussion in a laughable attempt to distract from her deadly decision making. According to Mayor Durkan the shootings and killings only happen at night, but it’s a mostly peaceful “summer of love” during the day. She’s also claimed “white supremacists” are committing the violence. That seems ludicrous, but let’s say that was the case. What the (insert the invective of your choice) does the race or ideology of the shooters matter?
What if this most recent shooting involved white supremacists? So what? The CHOP has remained a magnet for violence since its birth, with the Iron Lady as midwife. Frankly, I don’t care which whacko group is doing the violence, including the shooting and killing. I care that the Durkanistani revolutionaries refuse to stop it, and no city leaders I know of are taking a public stand against the violence. Rather, many city “leaders” are actually supporting and facilitating the anarchy and insurrection—because they think it hurts President Trump.
Other than the Iron Lady, the most recent public official we’ve heard from was Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes, a man of little substance. The pretend prosecutor not only said he will not prosecute rioters but also added this gem: he will send the rioters to “counseling…” Wait for it…in The CHOP.
I am getting punch drunk, hit in the face daily with political leader stupidity. It’s good Holmes doesn’t handle felonies. However, his King County counterpart, who does handle felonies, the political chameleon, Dan Satterberg, isn’t any better.
The Iron Lady finally put her foot down after the last murder (not this most recent last murder, but the last murder before this one, which occurred after the first murder that happened before the second one—when she said she would clear out The CHOP). The streets trembled with fear of the Iron Lady’s awesome wrath.
But who knew …
