Seattle Police Chief To Residents: We No Longer Can “Preserve Property in the Midst of a Large, Violent Crowd”

Seattle Police Chief To Residents: We No Longer Can “Preserve Property in the Midst of a Large, Violent Crowd”

Something will fill the vacuum left by police, and it seems doubtful the left will like the results

Seattle police cannot use any crowd-control devices and must, effectively, let the violent, lawless rioters run free.

Seattle’s police chief alerted residents that they are on their own now.

The left has a long track record of getting everything wrong, so it’s of no surprise to anyone that Americans of all races, genders, religious, ideological, and etc. backgrounds are scrambling to get guns to protect themselves because the police have been neutralized.

Who would have thunk that the left would be the driving force behind Americans arming themselves in historic and record numbers?  Anyone and everyone saw this coming, and the resultant, entirely predictable, carnage lies at the feet of clueless, truly myopic Democrats.

What do they do now?  The right hasn’t risen to their back-handed call for their twisted version of patriotic unity against Trump’s “stormtroopers,” and everyone—left, right, and center—is arming up.

The ball is in the BLM-Democrat-leftstream media court, and they really don’t have a next move . . . unless they manage to gain control of both Houses of Congress and the White House in November.

So there you have it, the stage is set for the 2nd amendment solution. This is the very definition of the anarchy our founding fathers warned us about. Our gun rights exist for the very purpose of defending our 1st amendment freedoms without which, the Constitution is pointless.

I never ever thought I would live long enough see this happening in my own country.

    Remember, if someone or some group tries to block your car, you could end up like Reginald Denny, beaten to a pulp or dead. Never get out of the car. You can probably run over a bicycle or a few protesters and get away. Like the cops said, they can’t protect you. Protect yourself. And Carry.

    Word on the street is that the Antifa pedophiles are running Seattle and Portland now.

    Make BLM, Antifa, and the Democrat Party stop molesting toddlers and children.

    Strong language warning.

      Black Trump Supporter Stabbed By Pedophile Antifa Member In Portland

      Ian Miles Cheong

      David Blake Hampe has been charged with felony assault. He allegedly stabbed a black Trump supporter @SpaceForceUSA_ in Portland in the early hours of Saturday. His bail has been set to $250,000.

      David Blake Hempe was convicted for possession of child pornography in Maine in 2007.

The Democrat leaders are willfully abstaining from providing a “republican form of government”.

This is the true nature of the Dems/Progs. One of their largest constituencies are criminals. Consciousness Objectors to the war on crime.

As written elsewhere, this will end badly….

LookoutABear | July 25, 2020 at 12:00 pm

This is what happens when you get so entrenched in your echo chamber and actively seek to deplatform or smear anyone who disagrees with you slightly. You can only push more leftward or the mob comes for you next.

Sniveling wimp for a police chief. Would for a chief with stones enough to tell the city gov’t to GTH and stand up to do what’s necessary to protect the citizenry.

    The police are now free to join their fellow neighbors and family who plan on joining the 2nd amendment option. They have not surrendered their rights and obligations as citizens. Without the entanglements brought on by their badges and uniforms, they are free to follow their consciences. I’m betting we’ll be seeing plenty of them in the trenches.

    BD1957 in reply to MrE. | July 25, 2020 at 3:11 pm

    Seattle City Council has deliberately disarmed its police force, deliberately tipping the balance of power in favor of the rioters.

    All the Chief is saying is

    “If we follow your rules, my officers will be injured or killed – you’ve left us nothing but deadly force to defend ourselves and discharge our duties, and we know what you’d do to us if we used deadly force.”

    “I’m not feeding my officers into your meat-grinder.”

    “You’ve taken a side; you’re on the side of the rioters, the looters, the people destroying the property of others.”

    If the Chief wanted to truly lead, the entire force would walk off the job.

      Casey in reply to BD1957. | July 25, 2020 at 3:56 pm

      The letter specifies pepper spray, but doesn’t mention tear gas, beanbag rounds, or riot sticks. Are these all banned?

      Did they ban guns, too?

      The chief is a willing accomplice to the mayor. Don’t expect much push back from that direction.

      Voyager in reply to BD1957. | July 25, 2020 at 4:18 pm

      Sounds like that is exactly what he just did…

        CorkyAgain in reply to Voyager. | July 25, 2020 at 8:04 pm

        She. Like many Dem-controlled cities, Seattle hired a black woman as their police chief. I don’t know how many wokemon points that’s worth, but it must be a lot because they’re all doing it.

      TeacherinTejas in reply to BD1957. | July 25, 2020 at 5:39 pm

      Yep and he and his cops are all Democrats and their union dues have poured into the coffers of that party for years and will continue to do so!

    xdevildog in reply to MrE. | July 25, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    A county sheriff can pull that off with a bare majority of the county voters’ support. A city police chief hired by politicians or bureaucrats not so much.

Dantzig93101 | July 25, 2020 at 12:19 pm

The useful idiots in the streets won’t like the results. Their puppet masters might like the results a lot, since their main strategic goal is simply to break American society so it can no longer function.

The puppet masters expect that in the ensuing anarchy, they can seize total power. They would rather be absolute dictators of a ruined society than prominent citizens of a peaceful and prosperous society.

Fighting the useful idiots in the streets is like treating a shotgun wound with a band-aid. Only by removing their puppet masters can we restore stability and social peace. Restoring prosperity will take a while longer.

Grrr8 American | July 25, 2020 at 12:25 pm

In an ironic (and karmic) way, this all actually buttresses the Progressives’ fealty to Darwin and Darwinism.

That is, the “bitter clingers” / “deplorables” areas of the country, and the people within them, will be the last to succumb (and hopefully will never be subdued).

Meanwhile, the enlightened Progressives who effectively banned firearms in their areas of political control will be victimized — perhaps including mass fatalities — of the Antifa-Bolsheviks that they raised through their Progressive K-12 and college curricula. Those that survive will find themselves living under a totalitarian cultural revolution that will make their imagined “Christian theocratic totalitarianism” seem like, well, heaven in comparison.

Survival of the fittest baby!

amatuerwrangler | July 25, 2020 at 12:40 pm

The crime is that the Seattle COP will deploy the disarmed police officers against the fully armed mob, ignoring the peril she places the cops in.

UPDATE: J. Turley posted that a federal judge has block (temporarily) the implementation of the City’s ordinance barring the less-lethal stuff. Turley disagrees on the basis that it is not the Fed’s business how individual cities equip police, thus a federal judge has no jurisdiction here. A commenter (in Turley’s post) notes that Seattle is under a Federal consent decree from a prior admin, so the federal court does have a dog in the fight, maybe.

So, the police have been “reduced” to using shields and riot batons. Not that big a deal, except to the protestors. Riot batons, when used efficiently do a lot of long lasting damage. Chemical munitions do not. Also, the police have no duty to retreat, from a hostile mob. And, frozen water bottles, thrown barricades, rocks, bricks and even the disparity of force which exists between two dozen cops and 100 rioters constitutes deadly force and can be met with deadly force. This could end up becoming very interesting from the pov of the rioters.

You gotta love it when a plan comes together.

    amatuerwrangler in reply to Mac45. | July 25, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    I’ve been thinking this for quite a while now. I guess that is what I get from reading Andrew Branca.

    Yes, they are reduced to shields, batons and sidearms (and shotguns with real shot, not gas capsules). I love my 870.

    Paul in reply to Mac45. | July 25, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    A “Kent State” incident is what they’re hoping for. These fools rioting in the street are fodder.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Mac45. | July 26, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    The point is that no one is allowed to preserve property, not the police, and certainly not you, when they get around to taking everything you have, to include your life, if they desire to take it.

The actions of the Seattle City Council leaves me at a total loss. There is no theory that can explain this to me but one. That the citizens of Seattle have elected dedicated anarchists to represent them. I hope tonight is live streamed because I bought extra popcorn.

I’m having a real dilemma here, so I’m asking for advice. I live on the east coast. Do I try to stay up until the Saturday night massacre starts; or do I set my alarm for 3:00 am and go to bed early?

I missed the 2016 election results in real time and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna miss this train wreck.

    Bill West in reply to Redneck Law. | July 25, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    I think that going to bed early and getting up at 3:00 AM is your best bet. Unfortunately, I expect the networks will try to ignore it.

    I think the Red Tsunami will crest early. Watch it in real time and still go to bed early. That allows me to be ready for any Antifas or BLMs that might want to get frisky in the morning.

Even if Seattle, or Portland, could be rescued…why would it matter? Democrats would still regain control. Sounds like the post Reconstruction South. Remodel the pig pen just to put the same pigs back in.

    Hank51 in reply to Whitewall. | July 25, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    I would like to think that even the wokesters would tire of the crap we see happening.

    That’s probably wistful thinking though.

Seeing this news makes me even more thankful I live in a “backward” Southern state where it’s extremely unlikely something like this will ever happen.

If you think Southerners aren’t independent, I invite you to spend a week or two in the rural South. You’ll return home with a different opinion of us, and probably better aim.

Posting this on my facebook page: Why I’m Not A Democrat. I am going to watch the governor elections in Washington and California closely next time around. If a majority of people vote to continue this appeasement of Antifa terrorism, then the time may be running out on the rest of us. Not only will it cause further migration out of the Left Coast, but I doubt those fleeing, if they’re Democrats, are smart enough not to vote for the same BS they voted for in the past that caused them to flee. Here in Idaho people are just watching and waiting to see when we are up. We are sitting on the porch minding our own business, but if Antifa drifts into our neighborhoods, they’re in for a shock.

    Boise ID voters elected a prog dem. mayor nad an racist city cancel woman who hates white people. The elected mayor than brought a new chief of police from Portland OR.

Insufficiently Sensitive | July 25, 2020 at 4:27 pm

Federal judge Robart issued a temporary restraining order Friday evening ending the City ban on non-lethal crowd control devices like blast balls and tear gas. For a while the Seattle Times had his words to the effect that banning non-lethal tools leaves the police nothing but lethal ones to do their job of crowd control – which he concedes is necessary.

So the Mayor’s dream of no crowd control is postponed for a while, and with it the new Wild West sport by business owners of lethal crowd control from within the broken-into businesses.

Some Seattle notes, not in any particular order:

Take last January before covid, before the riots …. driving through Seattle on I-5, noting about 15 construction cranes swinging around downtown, my passenger, a friend, said, “Seattle downtown looks like Capitalism Gone Wild. Why do you (he’s from Bellevue, WA) keep electing these proto-commie morons for mayor and city council?”

— Good question. And a near life-long resident of Seattle, I don’t know the answer. Something in the water? Rainier Beer — or maybe Olympia Beer used to have a motto ‘It’s the water’.

— When the police left the East Precinct they filed out much as the eunuchs filed out of The Forbidden City in the movie ‘The Last Emperor’, the police carrying their small box of files much as the eunuch’s carried out their excised genitals in small boxes.

— For years I’ve been after the Republican party to set up some kind of presence in south Seattle. We have 2 decent community centers where they could rent a room one day a week and just have open hours to talk to kids wandering in and out. Keep sodas or coffee and chips on hand. Just be there. Create a presence. Most kids in the south end have never talked to a Republican. Nothing. Nada.

— I want to support the police but when they give free rein to looters and gangsters while shutting down restaurants, non-mask wearers and nail salons … well …

— I live in south Seattle where property destruction has been going on for years in the form of graffiti on small business buildings. The police never stopped them. This has been essentially a tax on small businesses for over a decade. The city does not care. I spent 2 hours with a Seattle city councilman telling him of the hardship this causes. I helped him outline a solution: graveyard foot patrols of experienced street cops who could scout and nail the perps. You would have to apply for a grant if the department did not have the money but that shouldn’t be too hard. You would have to put the cases before special — hand- picked — judges since most judges won’t prosecute under-18 graffiti perps. Of course nothing happened. Nada. My sense is that a big part of BLM and antifa is these totally lawless graffiti kids who have had free rein for over a decade in south Seattle, Seattle’s Central Area and the south part of Capito Hill, which was recently taken over by the punks.

— In short, a long series of declensions has led to the present do-nothing … for years the city’s supposed leaders have done nothing to stop lawlessness. They were hypnotized by the huge bags of development money loaded in from construction companies all over the world. Recently a freeway bypass (The Alaskan Way Viaduct) was removed from downtown Seattle, granting the city an unobstructed view of the Olympic Mountains and its beautiful Elliott Bay. Seattle would become one of the few west coast cities with an unobstructed, accessible waterfront (most west coast waterfront cities used their waterfronts as industrial rail-spikes (Tacoma), or barge traffic (Portland)). San Francisco might be the only other one with an unobstructed bay view. Downtown real estate prices bumped up accordingly. Now downtown Seattle looks like a giant homeless encampment, with huge sheets of plywood and pressed wood over glass over all the upscale stores and buildings of the central city. It’s a fine example of a sheisse-hole. Nothing. Nada.

The Friendly Grizzly | July 25, 2020 at 4:39 pm

The cops WILL respond when someone defends themselves, or runs over those trying to get away.

Don’t doubt me.

Addendum: I have a relative who works in financial advising in Portland. The other day I called him to ask a question. I prefaced the question: I always assumed the city rich would look out for their investments – they would put pressure on the politicians to make sure everything was copacetic even in the face of moronic destructo rioting. Question: in times of civil stress, wouldn’t Portland’s rich approach their politicians, offering advise and consent, to say something like: “It’s time to stop this moronic destruction of our beautiful city. Stop the destroyers”? Yes, he answered, they did so, with zero results. Conclusion: Seattle and Portland mayors, and the state’s respective governors, form a perfect, semiconductor-grade, pure quadrant of stupidity. Everyone is either canceling leases or not renewing them; in short, getting the hell out of Dodge …

    Here in a university town in Texas I personally know several professors who are refugees from the People’s Democratic Republic of California. They will talk your ears off about how horrible and expensive and dangerous life is in the PDRC. And every one is a rabid Bernie Bot. Every. Single. One.

    My experience with ex-Californians may not be typical, since university professors tend to be cracked anyway. But I get the willies when I hear about people fleeing Communism in blue cities or states. How many are simply spreading the cancer of Communism?

    At some point the rent is going to come due. Anyone who is operating with 6 months of float has got to be getting pretty nervous. All of these kids who aren’t paying rent are acting like they are getting away with something, but there is a good chance none of them will be able to rent in the future without a 2 or 3X security deposit when their credit score plummets due to breaking a lease. Adulthood be tough.

Bikers for Trump might want to take a closer look at situations like these going forward.

TeacherinTejas | July 25, 2020 at 5:37 pm

Hey residents and business owners of Seattle, you’re on your own! You can protect yourselves? What’s that? For years, you’ve voted for stupid and draconian gun control laws? Oooh yeah, sorry about that! Guess it sucks to be you right now!

Fill the vacuum with the corpses of leftists.

A few years ago, the Detroit Police Chief publicly told citizens to “take care of business” themselves, because the police would only be available to show up and write a report after the fact

wonder what happened to him?

“Something will fill the vacuum left by police, and it seems doubtful the left will like the results.”

Depends. The Communists will seek to create a nationalized police force. This new force will not bother with investigating rape, robbery, burglary, murder, and other crimes the police used to investigate. Instead, “racism” will be the focus, which means “anyone who disagrees with Communist ideology.”

It is a question of priorities. If you rape or murder someone, you stand a good chance of getting away with it (unless a vigilante mob catches you). But if you tell a “racist” joke, the full weight of Federal law enforcement will come down on you.

    They had better hope that their army is better trained than the marching band that showed up in Louisville.

    I plan to show this to my son as how NOT to react when a round is fired. It is truly a miracle that a lot of body bags weren’t handed out that afternoon. Of course, one of my buddies mentioned that this group is known to carry and Display airsoft replicas. Taking an airsoft to a gunfight is even more stupid than a knife.

    You know, I really thought that the kid taking the less-lethal to the noggin would have smartened up at least half of them that they were playing a stupid game which could get pretty darn serious pretty quick. But it almost seems to have had the opposite effect. I am starting to realize that those who voluntarily mutilate their bodies just think differently than I do.

Sounds like an advertisement. “Come on folks, lots of property to destroy!“

So by law of necessity, which this nation was founded on, we can now own and use fully automatic weapons in order to defend ourselves and our property. I’m talking belt fed automatic weapons. I’ll get right on it. I’ve always wanted my own SAW.

    badkarma989 in reply to getsome. | July 26, 2020 at 5:17 pm

    There are only 10 or 11 M249s available for legal sale, all are currently off the market, I BELIEVE. However, last I did look, its been a while, there were three or four M60 variants available for legal sale. Might be able to get your hands on one of those. Good luck, they’re stupid expensive.

    DSHornet in reply to getsome. | July 26, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    If the excrement seriously contacts the ventilator, there may be nobody around to tell you “no”.

    Until then, have handy the phone number and address of a gun smith who can make an M-16 out of an AR-15 or discreetly source the parts yourself. You know there are people around the country who are.

Way back when, the owners of the threatened businesses would have all armed themselves and guarded their businesses. After some number of violent rioters quickly wound up dead for their antics, the rest would run away. The police would come and gather the bodies, do their investigating, and things would be back to normal in short order. The politicians would be motivated to prevent further rioting to keep the body count (or rioters) down.

But what I see happening these days is that business owners board up their properties and leave town in anticipation of rioting, hoping that there is something left when they return. As much as I hate to say it, in the current political and legal environment, that’s probably the safest course of action. If that’s your plan, then just be sure to buy plenty of insurance.

The time has long passed for the president to federalize the Washington and Oregon National Guards and send in the troops with live ammunition to clear the streets of the trash.
