Raging anarchists and hard-left revolutionaries allowed to commandeer a six-block area of downtown Seattle are getting — perhaps for the first time in their adult lives — a hard lesson on consequences of ones’ actions.
While Democrats and their media enablers continue to sell the occupation of the downtown area a democracy at play, as little more than a peaceful block party, chaos reigns inside the walled-off area known as Capitol Hill Organized Protest.
Early Saturday, a 19-year-old man died and another person was injured in a shooting inside the “autonomous demonstration zone.”
“Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims,” the Seattle Police Department said in a statement. “Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP medics.”
(CHOP medics are not real medics.)
At the same time, authorities come under fire for not acting, as seen in a viral tweet showing paramedics awaiting a police escort before entering the occupied zone — in what has got to be the mother of all ironies, the raging mob that created a “no-cops” zone, complete with armed guards, continues to call 911 for emergencies.
“Medics refused to help even after people in the CHOP begged. They let our bro bleed out for 30 minutes till he died. F*ck politics. F*ck your currupt system,” tweeted hip-hop artist and so-called “warlord” of CHAZ, Raz Simone.

It’s not entirely clear if the person referenced in the tweet is the 19-year-old who was shot, or a new victim.
Andy Ngô, a Seattle-based conservative journalist who has a rich history of covering the violent Antifa thugs in his city, he was severely beaten in Portland last year by the domestic terrorists, responded to the tweet above to explain why the paramedics were waiting.
“They don’t enter without police protection because CHAZ is dangerous, as evident by what has been happening this week,” he tweeted. “When police did respond last night, they were met by a violent crowd & physically blocked from entering beyond the main checkpoint area.”

As Ngô pointed out in another tweet, police “were not allowed to enter CHAZ,” which is the other name for CHOP.
Exclusive: My sourcing tells me that Seattle Police have been hampered from carrying out a homicide investigation because they were not allowed to enter CHAZ. When police went to Harborview Medical Center, where a victim was transported, they were met by CHAZ's armed people.

A separate video captured what was described as a fight “that immediately preceded the shooting,” coming after “heavy drinking throughout the night.”
Witnesses said there was heavy drinking throughout the night, then a conflict escalated into gunfire.

Remarkably, after the shooting, the media was still portraying the area as little more than a street festival.
“Hours after the shooting, the scene in the protest zone was quiet. People pushed baby strollers, and other visitors milled about in the cool, cloudy weather, taking photos of themselves with CHOP signs,” the Associated Press reported.
Here’s another video of the “quiet” night.

As seen in the online responses to the incident, there is no sympathy for these poorly-equipped-for-life radicals.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
If you guys wouldn’t have driven the cops out, it would have been safe for the paramedics to enter, FYI.

You seceded. Welcome to autonomy.

Your zone was deemed too dangerous to enter. Medics and the like dont have ‘put yourself in harm’s way’ as their job description. This is all on you, kid. And it will get worse. That’s just the world you’re striving for

You mean this autonomous country didn’t have its own first responders? Too bad

Come on. Let’s be fair. Whoever did the garden is a special individual 😉

It sucks when you don’t understand how things work but you want to tear everything down because you’re “woke.”

For real, how entitled can they get? EMT/Paramedics are just meant to take these deranged lunatics at their word that there’s no threat?

Wait, I thought CHOP was autonomous?? Why r they using Seattle resources??
