CHOP ‘warlord’ is debunked by Seattle police footage, but rages on about paramedics letting ‘our bro’ die

It seems Raz Simone, the hip-hop artist and so-called “warlord” of CHOP, wants to have his cake and eat it too.

Simone posted a video of paramedics waiting for police to be allowed to escort them into the six-block area of downtown Seattle commandeered by raging anarchists and hard-left revolutionaries to tend to gunshot victims — ironically, the video captures someone berating the paramedics in one breath, while assuring them that they will have safe passage in another.

After gunfire erupted in the hard-left occupation zone, the warlord accused the crew of allowing “our bro bleed out for 30 minutes till he died.”

However, the Seattle Police Department released footage showing occupants of the autonomous zone impeding the police from reaching the victims.

“This update includes officers’ body worn camera footage and other open-source videos,” a statement from the department said.

Additional information provided said the officers were met by “a violent crowd.”

The statement further said: “On June 20th, at approximately 2:30 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a report of shots fired in Cal Anderson Park. This is inside the area referred to as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP). Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims. Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP ‘medics.'”

The Seattle Times also reported that video shot by a citizen journalist with Converge Media “shows police arriving at the shooting scene in a phalanx, guns drawn, behind shields. They were met by angry, yelling protesters, who told them the victim had already been taken to the hospital.”

Conservative journalist Andy Ngô also tweeted that police “were not allowed to enter CHAZ,” which is the other name for CHOP.

Police said one of the victims, a 19-year-old male, died from his injuries and the other victim remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The suspect(s) fled and are still at large, and since the radicals inside CHOP refuse to cooperate, there is no description of the assailant(s).

Not to be denied his required daily portion of rage, Simone engaged in a serious game of moving the goal posts afterwards… so much so, they’ll need to be placed on wheels.

He also offered this profound tweet targeting the paramedics, while accusing police of being murderers:

Keep in mind, Simone was captured on video early last week randomly distributing AR-15s from the trunk of a car:

In responding to a reminder that the Seattle Occupation effectively ceded from the United States, our hero developed a sudden pride in being an American — you can’t make this stuff up.

In an exchange with another social media user, the rapper insisted the “autonomous zone” was not autonomous. When faced with photo evidence, he had an answer here too.

He again falls back on being an American citizen when properly schooled in another tweet.

“You’re delusional,” the tweet read. “You started your own society/country. So it is on you to have your own paramedics. Looks like nation building is not in your skill set.”

In yet another exchange, he claimed that the area deemed as a “no-cops” zone was open to police.

“It’s not a no go zone. Police can go and come as they please,” Simone tweeted.

Providing they are heavily armed, enter “in a phalanx, guns drawn, behind shields.”
