The Seattle Police Department also discovered homemade spike strips meant to prevent cars from entering the CHOP area."Finally," tweeted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. "Twenty-some days and several deaths too late. The rule of law must not fade in and out with the fashions of the radical left."

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, took to mocking the autonomous zone."Boy, nation-states seem to be lasting shorter & shorter," he said in one tweet."Is it still the Summer of Love? #NowThatCHAZIsGone," Cruz said in another.LATEST SEATTLE CHOP SHOOTING KILLS 16-YEAR-OLD BOY, CRITICALLY WOUNDS 14-YEAR-OLD BOY

Cruz's "Summer of Love" tweet referenced a quote from Durkan during the early stages of the CHOP zone as she initially seemed uninterested in reclaiming the six-block area of her city that included a police precinct, which officers were forced to abandon, and several businesses, which business-owners could not get to.

Durkan and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee both were initially resistant to dismantling CHOP as President Trump mocked them online and offered the National Guard to clear the area upon their request."I spoke with @MayorJenny and her team about the situation on Capitol Hill," Inslee said in a tweet on June 11. "Although unpermitted, and we should remember we are still in a pandemic, the area is largely peaceful. Peaceful protests are fundamentally American, and I am hopeful there will be a peaceful resolution."

Durkan, responding to Trump in one tweet, said "Seattle is fine Don't be so afraid of Democracy."Following that dustup among Trump, the mayor and the governor, there were five shootings and two deaths in CHOP, which was eventually cleared not by the National Guard, but by the Seattle Police Department.
