Black teens still die at the hands of black CHOP occupants without involving police: Seattle Police Chief asks questions which BLM won't answer
The harsh speech of the Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best near the CHOP initially caused laughter among the invaders and the "Black Lives Matter" activists, but when the question was raised about who is to blame and who will be responsible for the death of two teenagers inside the police-free zone, no answer was given.
Last week, Seattle authorities and the Police Department announced that they intend to regain control of the CHAZ / CHOP, but their delay acted against them and even a few days of delay led to three new shootings.
“It’s very unfortunate that we have yet another murder in this area identified as the CHOP – two African-American men dead at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter,” Carmen Best stated.

Immediately after the occupation of the area, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan encouraged the protesters, but when she had to contemplate the consequences of uncontrolled violence, crimes and class action lawsuits, Durkan promised to regain control, unfortunately, these are just words.
