By now most people are probably already aware of the shootings that took place in CHOP — or “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” zone — near Cal Anderson Park in Seattle, Washington on June 20th.
For those who have not heard the story, here is a brief recap. On Saturday, June 20th, at approximately 2:30 AM, the East Precinct officers responded to several 911 calls that reported shots fired in Cal Anderson Park. This is inside the area referred to as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP).
Upon arrival the officers attempted to locate the shooting victims but were met by a violent crowd that prevented the officers, as well as the fire department medics, safe access to the shooting victims. Later officers were informed that both victims had already been transported to by volunteer CHOP “medics”.
When the officers called ahead to Harborview Medical Center they were informed that one man was declared deceased at the hospital and another male was currently being treated for life-threatening injuries. Homicide detectives are still investigating the fatal shooting.
So fast forward a few days and the surviving victim decided to make a TikTok video from his hospital bed and put it on social media. In the video the man claims that he was shot 5 times and then says, “The cops left me out there to die.”
He then goes on to plead for help saying, “I need help from someone in legal or media to get my story told and get it out there.”
Obviously we know this is not the case but it just goes to show you that the very same people who are calling to “DE-FUND & DISMANTLE THE POLICE” are the first to complain when they are not readily available to help when they need them – even if the reason they couldn’t help was because they were prevented access to the victims. It must be nice for all the citizens of CHOP to be living in a world of willful ignorance.
