This past weekend, a murder (along with two other shootings) occurred in the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ), a six-block neighborhood that has been occupied by left-wing protesters and provocateurs for the past two weeks. We can add this murder to the rape, battery and assaults taking place in the “cop-free” area patrolled by roving — and armed — bands of strongmen.
Of course, police have been prevented from investigating the crime because, you see, police are not allowed within CHAZ. And the 19-year-old who was shot and killed? Well, first-responders were met with resistance when they tried to enter the zone, so the victim was rushed to the hospital in private cars.
Take a step back and think about this. In one of America’s leading cities, hooligans have claimed for themselves blocks of private property where they declared their own city-state, live under their own “laws” and practice (if that’s the word) their own form of “justice” (again, if that’s the word).
