Seattle police have finally made the move to start clearing out the CHOP/CHAZ protest zone. Not sure what took them so long. Peaceful protest is protected by our constitution, but this was a zone that included violence and shootings and failed attempts at farming.
They also lit a police station on fire with cops inside. This should have been destroyed weeks ago.

Seattle police have retaken the East Precinct after clearing out the protest area known as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP, making more than a dozen arrests after Mayor Jenny Durkan declared the gathering an unlawful assembly.
Police issued the order to disperse around 5 a.m. local time Wednesday, telling protesters to leave within eight minutes. At least 13 protesters were arrested for failing to clear the area after multiple warnings, police said.
The East Precinct, which police abandoned last month following standoffs and clashes with demonstrators, was cleared of protesters, Police Chief Carmen Best told reporters from inside CHOP. Best said police were not moving into the building yet, but would clear the area of barricades before beginning operations as soon as reasonably possible."
