The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, CHAZ, is a Seattle district occupied by both peaceful and violent protesters. Organizers of this new nation-state proclaim themselves as separate from the USA and have evoked the ire of conservatives across the nation.
Accordingly and with a clarification that we're not talking about the upscale fancy Plaza restaurant also named CHAZ . . .
AN ANGRY KANSAS CITY MIDTOWNER GIVES UP ON THE PLAZA AND SHARES THIS MODEST PROPOSAL TO HAND OVER CONTROL TO DEMONSTRATORS!!!
Here's the word . . .
"Why bother? They have been trying to destroy The Plaza for at least 30 years. This was a groundbreaking and historic place to live. It was once some of the most valuable real estate in all of the Midwest but I guess we can't have anything nice. The Plaza welcomed everyone but that's not enough. Our leaders won't defend it and they're giving into mob rule. Rioters shut it down for two weeks . . . Unacceptable. The police who wanted to defend residents and property are painted as the bad guys. It's disgusting. So, if we're going to cave to the mob of activists then we should just accept the same fate as Seattle. Just go ahead and call the Plaza "CHAZ" because it's clear to me and my neighbors that our elected leaders are no longer capable of supporting a thriving entertainment district . . . "
That's a bold statement but the Friday note gives us an excuse examine the protest self-rule phenomena and now it might apply to KCMO.

Protesters Have Momentum
CHAZ is the acronym for the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone," an area of about six blocks in Seattle ceded to protesters. A kind of commune has sprung up - which has now become a nightmare bogeyman for conservatives, including the president
