Father Of Black Teen Shot And Killed In CHOP Calls For The National Guard
Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) descends into chaos
The father of a 19-year-old black teen who was shot and killed inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone has called for the city to stop the violent protests by bringing in the National Guard.
Horace Lorenzo Anderson's son, Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Jr., was the first person killed in CHOP after an episode of gun violence broke out inside the “autonomous zone.”
Anderson’s father broke his silence after another 16-year old black teen was killed in the CHOP over the weekend, and a 14-year-old left wounded.
“I ain’t been sleeping. You see my eyes," Anderson said.
"I’ve been crying. I’m trying not to cry on TV,” he added during a press conference, as per KIRO Seattle.
“This doesn’t look like a protest to me no more,” said Anderson.
“That just looks like they just took over and said we can take over whenever we want to,” he added.
Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan promised to end the demonstration, but many believe she is sympathetic to the plight of protesters and reticent to use force.
At least two people have been killed, and several others wounded in CHOP since last week.
Anderson said if the city is unable to break up the protest, the National Guard should be brought in.
“They should deployed them here to say ‘Man, it’s time to go,'” Anderson said.
” ‘It’s time to move on. And break this up.'”
Seattle Chief Carmen Best called for the mayor to help police in closing the demonstration.
“I’m not going to let the detractors and the naysayers and the agitators be the ones that are the voice here,” she said.
“There are people who live here. There are multiple people who are being injured and hurt," she added.
"And we need to do something about it. It is absolutely irresponsible for this discontent to continue.”
Chief Best said Thursday that allowing the city to be ruled by protesters was not her decision
She added that “rapes, robberies,” and other crimes are happening while police are powerless to respond.
Earlier this month, Durkan compared the violent armed takeover of her city to a "block party."

Anti-Trump Durkan told CNN host Chris Cuomo that the area of her city known as the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" (CHAZ) is “more like a block party atmosphere” than an “armed takeover.”
As Neon Nettle previously reported, CHAZ began enforcing its own "laws" by using heavily armed leftists mobs.
The thugs are now conducting deportations from the sealed-off zone without due process.
