So is CHAZ an illegal occupation of terrorist thugs, or freedom in America in 2020?

It seems to be very much like its larger neighbor in a certain current aspect anyway, so why bother?

There was no vote by residents of the city to take it over and no voting to administer it. There's no public control of who can come in and out of CHAZ, it's decided by a small minority of people who took it upon themselves to do so without the consent of the downtown residents. The elected government elites telling people what to do has simply been replaced with an unelected band of random people telling people what to do.
This isn't a proletariat revolution, it's one small group of rulers being replaced by another small group of rulers. The difference is, one is elected and one isn't.
There's people who work or own small businesses in the area, and some have to "show papers" and/or pay a fee to enter CHAZ (which is extortion).
The mayor of Seattle is a complete moron for allowing this to happen and continue.
