Nation Is In Chaos
After the Seattle Police Department vacated the East Precinct last Monday night, the protesters against the killing of George Floyd established a zone known as CHAZ Capital Hill Autonomous Zone and changed the name from Seattle Police Department to Seattle People Department. A federal judge in Seattle has ordered local police to stop using teargas, pepper spray and other strong force against the nonviolent protesters.
Black Lives Matter protesters negotiated with local officers Friday over their terms for leaving the six block area that they have controlled for most of the week. They are demanding that the police department budget be cut in half to help the local black community.
In Washington, President Trump has threatened to intervene by using military force, but Seattle Mayor Jenny Durban said that action would be unlawful and illegal.
It is so sad what is happening in Seattle. The people need to express their views by taking over the city streets. In this time of national tragedy, we are witnessing demonstrations all over the country with the coronavirus still not under control. Not only the black community is suffering, but all of us are also fighting for survival.
In Washington we really need to have strong leadership from the Congress and government to come to a solution for our country. Both Republicans and Democrats are thinking about the November election and how to get the votes to win. They ignore the basic issue facing our nation. When Congress drafts a police reform bill, we need to do it in a bipartisan way. We need to consider the rising crime rate in the nation. Cutting the police budget is not the solution at all.
As the most powerful nation in the world, we can’t isolate from the rest of the world.
川普总统今天到西点军校向一千名毕业生发表演说，他也表示下週末举办共和党群众大会，民主党挑战者拜登讽刺川普可能会在败选后不愿搬出白宫， 到时只有请军队来执行任务， 两位总统候选人主导国家之领导者，似乎已经撕破脸了。
最近国内外政局及经济之发展，真的令人万分担忧，官方医疗官员不断警告病毒可能会再次来袭， 但白宫官员却说，经济即将强力复甦， 但是如果我们的社会仍然动荡不安，何来经济之重启?!
