Father who lost son in CHOP/CHAZ violence wants National Guard deployed to clear it out

The father of a teenager who was shot and killed in the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone in Seattle said the National Guard needs to come clear out the protesters and end the demonstration, KIRO-TV reported.

City and police officials have called for an end to the occupation of the Capitol Hill area by anti-police protesters after a string of violent incidents, but some people remain.

Anderson said the National Guard should be deployed to disperse the protest if the city is unwilling or unable to take back control.

The city still hasn't regained control of a police precinct in the Capitol Hill area of the city, and despite repeated calls from Mayor Jenny Durkan and Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best for the protest to end, definitive action to restore order to the area has not been taken.

City officials haven't given a timeline for when officers will return to the precinct.
