As the Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone continues to operate without interference, the question as to how the government should proceed remains open. Republic Police Chief Loren Culp joined the Jason Rantz Show to discuss Inslee’s handling of the situation.

How would Culp react as governor to what’s going on right now in the city of Seattle?

“Peaceful protest is allowed within the First Amendment, but as soon as that turned violent, as soon as the radical left got in there and started torching places, and burning cars, and assaulting people, it would have been shut down if I was governor,” he said.

“We have leadership in Seattle and leadership in Olympia that doesn’t have a spine and doesn’t realize that there are people in there that have businesses and homes, and the good people of Seattle need to be protected. There needs to be law and order.”

As Jason noted, what if that’s not true? What if the people of Seattle actually do support this?

“I’ve talked to a lot of people that live in Seattle and King County, and they don’t like the lawlessness that’s going on,” Culp said. “They don’t like everybody living on the streets, in tents with feces and dirty needles everywhere. They want their neighborhoods back, they want their businesses back … But that’s what you get when you have far left people in government.”

Former ICE Director: Defunding police is not the answer to racism

Obviously, people are very passionate about making reforms in policing. Has Culp heard any reforms he could get behind?

“Well, every time there is an incident like what happened with George Floyd — which was totally tragic and uncalled for, and good police officers arrested the bad ones that killed him — I want everybody to remember that there are bad people in every walk of life, in every job, even the clergy, even teachers.”

WA GOP Chair: Inslee ‘gaslighting’ by saying CHAZ is peaceful

“But the far left likes to focus a laser beam on the 800,000 plus police officers around this country that are doing their job every day, taking care of their communities and protecting people … they want a laser focus on incidents like that and paint a broad brush across the whole police of the United States of America,” Culp said. “And that’s absolutely not true.”
