Dad Of Man Killed In Lawless Seattle Zone Files $3B in Claims Against Government

The father of a 19-year-old man who was shot dead inside the infamous and lawless Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone has filed $3 billion claims against local and state governments. He argues they allowed an atmosphere of “lawlessness” that led to his son’s death.

“I just want to see justice for my son,” Horace told The Post noting that no arrests had been made yet for the killing. “Somebody has to be held responsible. Something is not right and my son should still be alive to this day.”

“He didn’t have help. He needed help,” Horace said. “He needed me and I wasn’t there for him.”

“Everyone was walking around with guns. It’s like the wild wild west,” Horace said.

Normally, “You figure the police come in and they shut it down and clean up the area,” Horace said. “I never knew that people could come in and take over a whole city. That means there is no safety. The police aren’t doing their job.”

Horace said, “Every morning I wake up and I miss him and I’m crying.

“Just today I’m just driving down the street crying thinking about it going to the dentist,” the dad said.

“They try to sweep stuff under the rug,” Horace said. “I’m not here to be quiet. That’s my son. I’m not going to be quiet for nothing.”

“With no assistance or rescue from Seattle first responders, Lorenzo died in agony from his wounds,” claim the documents filed by lawyer Evan Oshan say.

“Politically charged armed, anarchist protesters to infiltrate, takeover, and govern a part of downtown Seattle,” and King County and the Governor, “did not intervene and stop this state of lawlessness,” the claim papers say.

“The City is not able to comment on pending claims or litigation,” Melissa Mixon with Seattle’s Department of Finance and Administrative Services told The New York Post. “Our primary goal with any claim is to be thorough and fair with how we review and adjust the claim.”
