As of 7:45 AM eastern US time Wednesday, the Seattle Police Department is forcibly re-taking the eight city blocks seized by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. They have regained control of the police precinct.
There have been two arrests so far, with some minor discharge of CS Gas, and the firing of one or two rubber bullets.
They have pushed people out of the side streets into the main street, and are now moving to clear the main street.
Several other police departments have come into Seattle to ask as reinforcements and back-ups.
In less than 30 minutes, the Seattle police came from the west and from the north, and have reclaimed the police precinct.
Police approached on Pine and from the north on 12th, and pushed everyone south onto Pike Street.
They arrived, announced that Mayor Jenny Durkan has signed an Emergency Order at 2:00 this morning, giving them orders to re-take the area and gave everyone ten minutes to disperse. At the end of ten minutes, the cops began moving - THANK GOD!
This is a developing story.
HAL TURNER REMARK: The mayor IS _finally_ doing what Trump told her to do. But only AFTER she allowed some black kids to get murdered.

Let's see: six shootings, two teenage deaths, and @MayorJenny still says "it's an arts festival". THEN, the CHAZ threatens to take over her 5,000 sq ft house worth $7.6 million after her new addition. A DAY LATER, she brings in the police, "end the chaos!" #Leadership #Comedy— James Altucher (@jaltucher) July 1, 2020
