Seattle's chief of police has warned residents and business owners that the SPD can no longer effectively protect them due to restrictions imposed on the force by the city's Democratic leadership.

On Saturday, nationwide Black Lives Matter protests unfolded, with violent clashes reported in major cities including Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and Louisville, Kentucky.

On Friday, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best wrote a letter to residents announcing that they would effectively not be able to enforce the law due to the City Council's ban on the use of non-lethal crowd control measures

The following say, SPD declared a riot in the city, citing "ongoing damage and public safety risks," according to USA Today.

Reports emerging from the riots on Saturday suggested that protesters were attempting to seize SPD's East Precinct and retake the CHAZ or CHOP protest zone that was shut down by authorities earlier this month.

However, the Seattle Police Department announced that residents and business owners are essentially on their own, despite the spiraling violence among the leftist mobs, according to reports.

"Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd," reads a letter from Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Best added that thanks to the City Council, "Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend."

In anticipation of violent weekend protests coordinated by leftists on social media (the same platforms that ban conservatives for using "offensive" words), Seattle business and police were seen boarding up.

Nationwide coordination

The Portland-based Pacific Northwest (PNW) Youth Liberation Front - which describes itself as a "decentralized network of autonomous youth collectives dedicated to direct action towards total liberation," issued a call to action for other Antifa cells across the country on Saturday - calling it "J25" (July 25).

In a Facebook "call to action," the anarchist group writes:

The Federal Government has already waged war against Portland, which has been protesting everyday for 50 days straight, and now feds are going to war against protesters everywhere in an attempt to take control and snuff out the fire of this uprising. We must become more powerful than them.

Form an affinity group.

Get tactical.

Meanwhile, as Neon Nettle previously reported, Chicago's Democrat mayor has ordered dozens of police to guard her home amid the city's spiraling violence and rioting.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot deployed police to secure the block where she lives shortly after she ordered the removal of a Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park.

Chicago has become such a hotbed of violence, President Donald Trump was forced to send federal police to help quell the ongoing unrest.

CBS Chicago reported that 1,000 protesters gathered in Logan Square Thursday night calling for racial justice and police reform.

The protesters were gathered at Kimball and Wrightwood avenues, close to where Mayor Lightfoot lives.
