One person killed and another shot this weekend in CHOP, Seattle. A Limerick.

A shooting in Seattle  — the third in 48 hours — was reported Sunday night in the area known as the CHOP, or Capitol Hill Organized Protest.

One person with a gunshot wound arrived at Harborview Medical Center in a private vehicle, the police and rescue personnel had been blocked from entry. The person was in serious condition.

Early Saturday morning, a 19-year-old man was killed after gunfire erupted at around 2:20 a.m. Medics from ‘CHOP’ rushed him to the hospital where he later died. A second shooting happened about a half hour later and a block away. That shooting victim, who’s 33-years-old, remains in critical condition in the ICU at Harborview.

Mayor Jenny Durkan eventually issued a prepared statement at around 6 p.m. Sunday, nearly 40 hours after the shootings. It said, in part:

Working with (Seattle Fire Chief Harold) Scoggins, (Police Chief Carmen) Best, and other city departments, the city will continue to make changes on Capitol Hill in partnership with black-led community organizations, demonstrators, small businesses, residents, and trusted messengers who will center de-escalation.

Well, up till then, all she had said about the protests was that Seattle would have a “Summer of love”.

The “Summer of Love” in Seattle.

Another man shot, it’s a battle.

So it is with Police.

If locked out, there’s no peace.

For Bolshevik CHOP life means little.
