    Apparently there is at least one private security team working inside CHAZ, Iconic Global.

    Private ‘high threat protection’ team part of response to overnight CHOP shooting

    Joseph Spiro tells CHS that Iconic Global “high threat private protection” teams have deployed in the area protecting client businesses and residential properties with patrols and rapid response to threats and dangerous situations near the protest zone.

    “We support the message. Obviously, there are people taking advantage of it. We’re there to make sure people feel safe,” Spiro said.

    While he was unable to provide details of the company’s clients, neighbors have reported the security personnel at the Car Tender auto garage and other nearby buildings. Car Tender became the center of a controversial incident at CHOP after a burglary suspect was caught in the act but police refused to come to the scene inside the protest zone.

    Spiro says the one-year-old Auburn, Washington company is paid by clients in the area but also is providing some support to businesses and buildings in the area pro bono. He says Iconic Global has also helped some inside the CHOP camp with medical help and support. “We’ve been working with some of the leaders of CHOP, too, to explain why we are there — not to get in the way of what they’re doing.”

    Private army, check.
    Now they need to privatize the court system, maybe just let a large business owner make those determinations.

    what could go wrong.

    hey, looks like it’s all white folk

    And from where exactly do these people draw the authority to lay hands on anyone, protester or civilian? Perhaps I'm just too ignorant, but in my perspective they can't possibly have any authority to carry those guns in gun free Seattle, much less the immunity needed to actually fire them. If I'm wrong, school me.

    Uh, they aren't in Seattle anymore. That sliver of land is now 'autonomous' and without law or support or under the legal umbrella of Seattle. Therefore, anything goes. Apparently. o_O

    What I don't get, is who's continuing to feed these people, much less fund power, water, sewer, etc. How can the power still be on in the abandoned precinct that the 'leaders' of CHOP/CHAZ are using it for their 'headquarters'. I'm not understanding why the existing residents and business owners haven't taken matters into their own hands and stopped this zone after almost a month. I believe the area to become a serious public health hazard (in addition to the coronavirus) as the summer wears on.

    I’d guess that the staff of registered security companies have always been able to carry in Seattle, wouldn’t see why not as they do in other large cities to provide everything from event to personal security services.

    That's just it. The city is still providing services. It is still the city's problem to enforce law here. They're trying to have it both ways. Once these mercenaries kill someone you can bet your bottom dollar that the lawyers will sue Seattle first, then possibly every entity involved in employing the "private security" outfit. CHOP isn't independent just because a few squeeky wheels with hairy armpits that smell like patchouli and sewer say it is. I'm wondering when the NG gets federalized and this encampment gets hosed down.

    I'm guessing they need authorization specific to the event from the elected government. And private security generally doesn't look like they rolled in off the red eye from Bagdad.

    Color me surprised. Washington State hasn't yet passed an "assault weapon" ban. Open carry is legal. I guess the progressives haven't been as successful there as I had assumed.

    Just the same, these guys still need must some kind of permission to do anything more than a private citizen can.

    You really should read this book: http://www.freeyourmindaz.com/uploa...t-dangerous-superstition-larken-rose-2011.pdf

    Where do you think those that you think could bestow that permission got it? Who gave it to them? If those people who supposedly gave it to them don't have that power themselves, how can they grant it to someone else?

    Bunch of men with their junk taped to their ass living in Seattle and a bunch who don’t care because it hasn’t yet reached their part of the city. Please, please come to western North Carolina and try this. There will be rural blue collar citizens marching into that “zone” by the thousands beating the dog poo out of anything that opens its mouth.

    Fox reports CHOP has been cleared out of non residents and business owners. The process started at 3AM with massive number of SPD officers in full riot gear. SPH has reclaimed the precinct that was abandoned by order of the Mayor. Going to cost several million to clean and repair that building.

    "
    Protesters have said they should not be blamed for the violence in the area."

    uhhhh WHO, then, should be blamed... lol The CHOP controlled who came in to the place, so wouldnt it be only protestors?

    KOMO Seattle has had running live feeds of the clearing out process. Amazingly quiet with only 20+ arrests so far. Some real nastiness to clean up though. At taxpayer expense no less.

    Learned what a 'Honey Bucket' is. Things you can't unlearn...... :eek: Much strangeness on the west coast.

    Know your laws, train like a mad dog and you will always be employable during the boog. Law and order needs to be reinstated quickly when the commies get run out of town.

    I hate to say it, but if they’d gone in the first week there would have been a ton of resistance, letting them be might have been the right thing.

    Waco would be an example of trying it the other way.

    What if they just would have exterminated every last one of these unemployed parasites? What of value would have been lost?

    I think it was the right thing. They wanted a fight, don't give it to them. Let them grow tired and weary and unable to further their cause.

    Justice would be lost, freedom would be lost, America would be lost.

    Isn’t a government needing to kill it’s own people to stay in control the definition of tyranny?

    Come on man. If you owned a business in that section would you be saying this? It doesn’t effect you so that’s easy to state. And Waco residents never took over part of a city and the police station.

    If I owned a business there I would either have protected it or be pissed for sure. But in the balance, a few dozen upset or even bankrupt business owners vs escalating the issue and likely creating far wider destruction, I think they made the right call. Hopefully the state will step up with grants to the small businesses to get them back on their feet.

    So the host should take on enough parasites to die only to suffer the same effects?

    These people aren't and don't want to be part of this country, as evidenced by this whole fiasco.

    The host seems to be rather resilient.

    Don’t you agree that having had a battle in the street weeks ago would have fueled the riots all over the country? This approach gave time for the folks that are generally rational, but were momentarily excited, to clear out, leaving just the hard core idiots.

    You know that there aren’t enough police to stop a real riot, so deescalation is the only real option, even if it looks like they lose a battle from time to time.

    Once the social contract has failed will insurance lawyers sue because of it and not honor claims? And the lost revenue to the biz owners? What about the rapes and deaths? Their declaration of something different from US sovereignty puts them at odds legally across the board. No social contract, no civilization! Who wants to live there? This is happening all over the country if you look closely just not with a fancy name change.

    I think you are giving the community leaders of Seattle wayyyyy too much credit on strategy.

    And the converse is also true. There has been a “spread” of Skinny Jeans trying to occupy various areas of cities all over country. Law of conservation...

    He’s just another politician sitting in office. The real problem, the unsustainable one, is the White Man.
