A group of far-left extremists have taken over several blocks in Seattle, and have established an “autonomous zone” that they claim is outside the control of the United States. Soon after it was established, a local rapper claimed control over it and established an internal security force.

The location is benignly referred to as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), and reports claim armed activists have been extorting businesses for money, stopping and frisking people entering the zone, and using mob justice to deal with internal crime.
