6am hour -- we're halfway through June, business owners armed with rifle apprehend arsonist inside Seattle's CHOP, the business owners showcase how Seattle Police have backed away from interceding on crime inside CHOP, SPD Chief offers a conflicting answer about policing CHOP, even one African-American woman inside CHOP confides police presence is better there than police absence, WA continues to lag far behind OR and CA on virus testing, a gay Republican tweets that he was once fired for being Republican, KVI debut of our new CHAZ/CHOP theme song (spoiler alert: a Tom Petty tune is involved), rewind on yesterday's US Supreme Court ruling on employment discrimination, another example of a CHOP business owner fearful of reprisal on his shop by intolerant activists.
