(AbsoluteNews.com) – Seattle is still under siege by rioters. They’ve declared six blocks downtown an autonomous zone called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) or Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), though an agreement with city officials has whittled them down to three blocks. And, according to at least one business owner, the police aren’t doing anything to uphold the law.
John McDermott, owner of the auto body shop “Car Tender” said his business was broken into on June 14. The suspect tried to light the building on fire but the owner was able to put it out. He and his son Mason detained the vandal and called 911, but cops never arrived. In fact, he called a dozen times and help didn’t come to his aid. Dispatchers eventually told him they weren’t going to send anyone.
McDermott was interviewed by Shawn Whiting, a Twitter user, at the scene of the crime.
I was streaming when the incident happened at CHAZ last night in Seattle. An auto shop near the zone was broken into (Car Tender), property stolen, and a fire started. The owners called the police and fire dept but they were told they would not show up. Full THREAD with clips ↓ pic.twitter.com/zmPS3EBmxm

Mayor Jenny Durkan said the police aren’t going to enter the zone unless there’s a “significant life-safety” issue that includes a structure fire or medical emergency. But the body shop owner did have a fire and nobody responded. Apparently, anything goes in Seattle.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
