Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan Dismantles CHOP, then 300 Protesters Show Up at Her Home

Last week, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said the CHOP police-free zone would end and police would return to the occupied East Precinct that was abandoned on her orders. Leftists responded by protesting at her home on Sunday, causing the Mayor to lash out in anger, fearing for the safety of her family. Mayor Durkan and her family are in the state program to keep their address confidential because of the death threats mostly related to her work as Seattle’s US Attorney under President Obama. City Council member Kshama Sawant, a committed socialist/communist, joined the protest mob and called for Durkan’s removal. City workers have begun removing the barriers from the CHOP squatters’ camp. On Monday, a shooting inside CHOP resulted in the death of the 16-year old and serious injury to a 14-year old male. This was the second murder since CHOP was established. -GEG

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed outrage after Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at her home Sunday afternoon, despite her previous support and defense of the “CHOP” encampment.

Protesters targeted her home after Durkan announced last week that the city would no longer support the Capitol Hill Organized Protest encampment and would seek to remove the concrete barriers that helped define the autonomous zone. But the CHOP remains intact.

Durkan released a statement expressing her anger at the protest. She was especially upset that Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant had joined the protesters at her home.

“Mayor Durkan and her family are in the state program to keep their address confidential because of the death threats mostly related to her work as Seattle’s U.S. Attorney under President Obama. Instead of working to make true change, Councilmember Sawant continues to choose political stunts,” read the statement from her office.

At the end of the article the Mayor wants to city council to investigate and prosecute the member who led the protesters to her home. How Ironic! And what law would the council member have broken? Seems there are higher priority Laws being broken and people and businesses being affected by the whole CHOP phenomenon. She seems blind to that, but bring it to her doorstep and oh my, the outrage! Laughable Hypocrisy!

The title has it backwards. Durkin ordered the dismantling of the CHOP occupation AFTER the protestors showed up at her residence. Before it became personal for her, she was supportive of the occupation

This what the Mayor needs to learn. She is nothing but a “useful idiot” when she supports the social mob in anything that breaks the rule of law. I just hope the voters in Seattle are pissed enough to throw the mayor out of office.
