Seattle Police Chief Tells Residents: We Cannot Enforce The Law, You Are On Your Own

The chief of the Seattle Police Department sent a terrifying letter to local businesses and residents reminding them that officers will no longer be able to adequately protect them because of a new ordinance that bans them from using nonlethal weapons when attempting to disperse large gatherings.

“Please know that the Seattle Police Department is committed to addressing life safety incidents and calls for service, and responding to ongoing demonstrations and unrest in the city,” Chief Carmen Best wrote in the letter.

“Please also know that the City Council Ordinance 119805 Crowd Control Tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26, 2020,” she added. “This ordinance bans Seattle Police officers the use of less lethal tools, including pepper spray that is commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent. Simply put, the legislation gives officers no ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.”

Police Chief Best went on to say that her city is under attack.

“It is a fact that there are groups and individuals who are intent on destruction in our City,” she wrote. “Yes, we also have seen weeks of peaceful demonstrations, but two recent events (Sunday, July 19th and Wednesday, July 22nd) have included wide-scale property destruction and attacks on officers, injuring more than a dozen, some significantly.

With more demonstrations anticipated, the police chief anticipates that the city will “continue to experience property destruction, arson, looting, and attempts to injure additional officers throughout the weekend and beyond.”

Best concluded her letter by writing that “under these circumstances, as created by Council, we cannot manage demonstrations as we have in the past. If I am not allowed to lawfully equip officers with the tools they have been trained to use to protect the community and themselves, it would be reckless to have them confront this level of violence under the current legal restrictions imposed by Council.”

Anti-police sentiments have been at an all-time high in the U.S. ever since the death of George Floyd, who was killed in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota back in May. Since then, protests have been happening all over the country, and they have been getting increasingly violent despite the fact that the liberal media portrays them as “peaceful.” New York Democrat Congressman Jerry Nadler even went as far as to call them “a myth.”

  • BY all means infringe on the rights of anyone who gets in your way and whomever does not share your childish immature destruction of property in the name of your free speech rights. Go ahead and post your address so other people like you can showup and break out your windows and burn your property all in the name of free speech and see how you like it. You can still go somewhere like North Korea and try to exert your right of free speech there and see what that gets you. Grow up crybaby.

  • And let people like you and Trump to continue to run America? I don't think so. I will continue to assert my Freedom of Speech and not allow an actual "poor excuse of an American" like yourself and Trump to dictate American values and Constitutional rights.

  • This is what happens when the Bolsheviks take control of your land. I live as a prisoner in my own state. I have no voice, no representation (unless one considers misrepresentation as representation), and no meaningful or effective way to address the evil that has descended upon a once proud and free state of this sacred union. These circumstances arise when citizens become cowards, sheep, ignorant, and lazy. Read Revelation 6:1-17, Revelation 18:1-24 and 1 Peter 4:12-19.

    Let the Leftists have CA, OR & WA, we don't need them & we don't want them. 
    Leave us Naval Base San Diago & a direct path to it & be gone with the Commie Pinko Leftists.
    Secession doesn't mean there needs to be a War if the State Representatives vote to secede, that was Lincolns ego.
    Though if those Commies then try to push further east, we'll annihilate them all.
