Civilization Retreats in Olympia

Like Berkeley, Olympia offers a foretaste of our last days, when moonbattery has succeeded at rotting our legs out from under us, and society collapses. As you'll recall, Olympia moonbats have actually interfered with US military shipments on behalf of the terrorists they so adore, secure in the knowledge that no one will open up on them with a machine gun. The chaos there continues.

Olympia is home to Evergreen State College, an institution so fundamentally depraved, it called upon convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to deliver a commencement address. The school hosted a hip-hop concert Thursday night that degenerated into a riot. Appallingly, police submitted to the will of an anarchic mob and released a hooligan they had arrested:

Thurston County Chief Criminal Deputy James Chamberlain said authorities made the right call in releasing the male because of the escalating unruly behavior of the crowd.
"It was a very volatile situation at one point, and I'm proud of the officers in how they responded," Chamberlain said. "They backed out of there to try and de-escalate the situation instead of making more arrests and possibly making it worse."
Six sheriff's deputies who arrived to assist the campus officer reported that several people in the crowd were throwing rocks, bottles and even a garbage can at the them, and others were grabbing at the deputies' guns.

A patrol car was looted and rolled over. Several others were damaged. Deputies suffered minor injuries before escaping. Finally riot police came and the punks dispersed. No further arrests were made. The hip-hop group Dead Prez reportedly initiated the attack on police by urging the crowd:

They're taking one of our people. Go take care of it.

I wonder if Chief Chamberlain (any relation to Neville?) will still be proud when the moonbat hordes invade HQ and the police run away rather than "possibly making it worse."

The decline and fall of civilization in Olympia.

Damnit Van now I'm pissed. How in the hell are getting potatoe's picture so often? Oh, by the way Lee, Don't you like freedom of speech? Oh wait that's right. You only like freedom of speech if you agree with the opinion. Typical libtard. Now back to those fine farmers next to me and those ICBM's. I wonder what this red button is for?

I know people who have graduated from that place and went to work for our lovely 'Hate America First' State Department....

Those of you who know that this cesspool has been pumping shit out its doors for several decades.........

I also know a couple of solid God Fearing State and local police in the immediate area that want to move away because, well, read the article....

I find it hard to believe what's happened to the sleepy small town I grew up in. What has happened to the Police Force that it backs down to a bunch of college kids. These same people that want to overthrow our government and way of life, seem to forget that it's because of the government, the judicial system and our way of life that they are allowed the freedom of speech to do what they are doing. If I had my way, the police would turn water cannons and tazers on them and make them take their sorry asses back to whatever rock they crawled out from under.
