Seattle Police Chief Lashes Out At City Council After Protesters Target Her Home
Seattle’s Chief of Police has had enough of the “mob rule” going on in her city, which she made abundantly clear after releasing a scathing rebuke to local city authorities who have cowered in fear and allowed Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa terrorists have free reign in the streets.
This particular statement comes after these hooligans personally targeted her home with “aggressive” tactics, causing fear to spread among her neighbors and friends in the area.
Enough is enough, folks. It’s time to reestablish law and order.
Check out the details from Fox News:
“I wanted to update you on recent events, particularly those that occurred late last night,” Best wrote in a letter addressed to City Council President Lorena González and Public Safety Chair Lisa Herbold. “A residence of mine in Snohomish County was targeted by a large group of aggressive protestors late last night. My neighbors were concerned by such a large group, but they were successful in ensuring the crowd was not able to trespass or engage in other illegal behavior in the area, despite repeated attempts to do so. Currently, the local sheriff (not SPD resources) is monitoring the situation.”
“I urge both of you, and the entire council, to stand up for what is right. These direct actions against elected officials, and especially civil servants like myself, are out of line with and go against every democratic principle that guides our nation,” Best continued. “Before this devolves into the new way of doing business by mob rule here in Seattle, and across the nation, elected officials like you must forcefully call for the end of these tactics.”
“The events of this summer were initiated in a moment of grief and outrage over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and so many other Black and Brown people suffering at the hands of injustice,” Best concluded. “All of us must ensure that this righteous cause is not lost in the confusion of so many protestors now engaging in violence and intimidation, which many are not speaking against.”
Why are larger cities, almost all of which are under Democratic control, suffering so badly from all of this chaos? Why aren’t mayors and governors doing all in their power to restore law and order, to stop the destruction and violence ripping their cities to shreds?
It’s an election year.
All of this chaos is a weapon against President Trump. They want to damage his reputation in the public as much as possible so people vote against him in November. Add to that the fear of being shamed as racist for interfering with this madness and there you have it.
What a strange time to be alive.
