SEATTLE (INTELLIHUB) — An auto shop near Capitol Hill was set on fire Sunday night and police and firefighters failed to respond so the owner took matters into his own hands.
One arson suspect was detained by the owner of Car Tender before being set free again after an unruly crown of protesters closed in on the business.
The shop owner told reporter Shawn Whiting that he had placed at least 8 separate calls to authorities who eventually admitted to him that they were not planning on responding to the fire.
The owner and a security guard said they found the suspected arsonist on the premises and said that the suspect had lied to them a number of times.
“I was streaming when the incident happened at CHAZ last night in Seattle. An auto shop near the zone was broken into (Car Tender), property stolen, and a fire started. The owners called the police and fire dept but they were told they would not show up. Full THREAD with clips…”@ShawnGui_
The business is located at 1706 12th Ave.
How long will the city remain lawless?
