the CHOPS: Portland and Seattle...



What's happening in these two are is absolutely outrageous.
Minneapolis is feeling the aftershocks of of what is still happening in Portland and Seatle. And it's not good.
If I recall correctly Seattle is on it's 100+ days of rioting(it is not 'protesting' at all).
Mayors and City Councils are permitting this, not allowing police to
What is the purpose. What is the aim. What is the hoped outcome.

Seattle as the next Detroit? That's not how we roll

By Jon Talton

Special to The Seattle Times
.

Two weeks ago I wrote about the extinction-level event facing Seattle small businesses, not just because of the pandemic but because of City Hall's tolerance of crime. It produced the largest response of any column I've ever written, 99.9% in agreement.

It was a nerve that needed to be touched. But I was surprised by the number of readers who took the leap to predict that Seattle would become "another Detroit." A few others predicted our fate was to be Cleveland or Buffalo.

This destiny is not within the misguided and injurious powers of today's city political elite, however. Backlashes and elections happen.

Detroit faced an unusual set of calamities to become synonymous with urban decline. Even Seattle's missteps won't compare.

For a start, consider the current differences:

Detroit suffered 275 murders last year amid the highest level of violent crime in the nation. By contrast, Seattle hit 28 murders, although the number is rising higher this year.

So this is what P&R has turned into? disbelief it's perfectly fine to talk shit, but at least also add something half way intelligent to the conversation. Straight shit talking with no chaser is pretty damn lame. No wonder the org is in decline.

I've just stopped responding to them. It's gotten ridiculous. We get enough abuse from the president and the GOP, but then to come here and see others just spewing the same bull*hit... So, I just ignore them. They can go back and forth together all they want, but I ain't biting the bait.

You sorta just did take the bait, even in indirectly replying to them.

Seattle police car set ablaze with officer inside: Man arrested
By Mallika Kallingal and Andy Rose, CNN 4 hrs ago


A man is in custody after he allegedly threw a flaming piece of wood into a police car while an officer was inside, according to police in Seattle.

Authorities say the officer was looking for a suspect reportedly carrying a burning piece of wood in the South Lake Union neighborhood.

When the officer confronted him, the suspect allegedly threw the burning wood into the police car while the officer was still inside and fled on foot. Other officers chased him into a parking garage, where they tased him and took him into custody, police said.

"He lunged in, he ran, and the driver's seat was already in flames. I thought the officer was still in the car, the driver's seat was on fire and then within minutes the car was engulfed in flames," a witness said told CNN affiliate KIRO.

As officers were arresting the suspect, the flames from the burning wood engulfed the patrol vehicle, police said.

"All of a sudden the car blows, catches on fire. We're like, 'Oh snap.' And then flames just started getting bigger and bigger," another witness told KIRO.

Seattle police say one officer was taken to the hospital. Assistant Chief Deanna Nollette told KIRO his injuries were minor, "some minor burn wounds."

Neither the suspect nor the injured officer have been identified.

Aerial video from KIRO shows the police car gutted by the fire, with scorched paint and some external plastic components melted on the roof. The partially burned piece of wood is also visible hanging from the front driver's side door.

One of the officers is believed to have discharged a firearm during the incident, but the suspect was not hit.
