Looks like traffic is stopped
For Capitol Hill neighbors who are concerned, CHOP committees spend a day reorganizing and regrouping after the terrible shooting and said they would issue a STATEMENT. Here it is:
Solomon Samuel Simone (aka RAZ) - the proclaimed warlord of CHAZ - calls himself a rapper but is anti-America, anti-w****, anti-cop & owns multiple guns, luxury automobiles and millions in real estate. He's well-funded and well-scripted. Raz is a Communist-Jihadi who helped write a new manifesto for Washington State to turn it into the first black M***** independent state & attends the Sheik Zayed mosque. This is the same ideology spewed by Keith Ellison when he used to worship Farrakhan & his NOI and call himself Keith Hakim Mohammad X. This is Keith Ellison's plan for Minnesota as well. Once you realize that BLM = CAIR = ANTIFA = BLACK BLOC = YOUTH LIBERATION FRONT = AIM = JOHN BROWN GUN CLUB = SOJOURNERS = ERLC = OCCUPY WALL STREET = SOROS = ACTBLUE = GLOBALIST = COMMUNIST PARTY it all makes sense. This war has nothing to do with race. It is a war between FREE people & those who wish to ENSLAVE us.
Get the word out on this and be on guard! This is not good
For fun! Feel free to write in the time if it's not mentioned.
I grew up in Bothell and love the community dearly. I feel the need to speak up and tell my story. I am a victim of police brutality. I was wronged by members of the Bothell police precinct and have suffered from post traumatic stress. When I was in high school I went through a mental health crisis and my parents were concerned for my safety. My mom called 911 for help but instead we got 3 squad cars and an ambulance at my front door. My parents said I had bath salts in my room which I did, I had a bag of Dr. Teal’s Epsom salts. Which is not a drug. There was no de-escalation or effort to understand my situation before the police were blocking all exits from my home. They came in both doors yelling at me to go sit down. They did not take time to check their information before forcing me into a traumatic situation. I went to go sit down. They pushed me through my antique chair and I fell in my wrists. They then pulled me out of my chair and forced me face first onto my living room floor. I did not commit a crime. I was already in enough pain. I was put into inpatient and isolated for two weeks that I will never get back. I was supposed to be preparing for my one act play at Bothell High School. I was told that if I didn’t take pills I would have to be in treatment longer. I was treated like a child when I was at Seattle Children’s. I felt so defeated and vulnerable. I could not go outside. I held in my emotions because any display would get me more time. I felt like I was in prison. All the same rules and restrictions. I had not committed a crime. Ruminating this trauma which haunted me for well over a year made finishing high school even harder. I did not deserve this treatment in my own home and I wanted justice. I wanted them to pay to fix my chair. I pleaded with the front office of the precinct and my request for money I had spent to fix my chair was denied. I was denied justice by my own community and I wasn’t even trying to take legal action agains the officers who made me live in fear. Police brutality is not just black and white and it effects us all. Thank you to all the officers who come help me at East John Safeway where I work. When I call on them they come. They all know my name for all the right reasons.
Any idea why helicopters have been circling around the central district for the past hour?
