Journalist Andy Ngo is reporting that the Occupied Territory within Seattle “could be described as a ‘sort of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.'” In greater detail, Ngo reports that “during the day it could be considered peaceful if one ignored boarded-up businesses or graffiti calling for the murder of police. But when the sun goes down, the “criminal elements come out,” Ngo noted. ‘Unfortunately, last night that was made very clear, when one person on a microphone and a loudspeaker was able to sic a mob of probably more than 100 people to chase down this business that was several blocks away. They just all descended on it. It was pure anarchy.'”

Jenny Durkan, the idiot mayor of Seattle, once told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that “We could have a summer of love.” That’s Durkan’s legacy. She’ll never be able to live that down for the rest of her life. That statement is as tied to her as “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” is tied to President Obama.

Right now, it appears as though there’s a 3-way competition for the ‘Worst Mayor in America.’ At this point, the tri-finalists are Durkan, Jacob Frey and Bill de Blasio. It’s a difficult race to handicap. Durkan allowed a foreign nation to sprout up in the middle of her city. Frey let rioters and looters demolish his city. In a city of 8,000,000 people, De Blasio has figured out a way to piss off every influential group in the city. But I digress.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told everyone that it was Durkan’s decision to abandon the police:

Seattle is transforming itself into a hell-hole:

“For example, there’s a Trader Joe’s nearby who announced just a few days ago that they’re closing indefinitely because of security and safety issues,” he remarked. “So, when you take that and you also see all [of] the businesses that are boarded up, that no cars can drive into this area — I don’t see how the few anecdotes of positive experiences of some owners could be the representative voice. Particularly when there are now some dissident voices coming out to speak and they’re having to do it anonymously because of threats of retaliation,” Ngo noted.

Another contributing factor to what Ngo described as a chaotic atmosphere is that many people have been seen openly carrying weapons like handguns, rifles, batons or knives. In addition, Ngo highlighted other concerns like rampant drug use, homelessness and lack of medical care.

Other than those dangers, Seattle is a virtual paradise. Then again, what would you expect if you removed law enforcement officers? I’d expect a chaotic situation, which is what’s happened.
