This is the crime of extortion. If anyone has been subjected to this, we need them to call 911,” Assistant Chief of Police Deanna Nollette said on Wednesday.

Protesters calling to defund the police and make sweeping reforms to law enforcement tactics have declared a six-block region — spanning 13th Avenue past 11th Avenue, near Cal Anderson Park, and from East Olive Street to East Pike Street — the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ).

The region encompasses the SPD’s East Precinct, which was abandoned by cops on Monday following days of violent clashes between law enforcement and protesters in the wake of George Floyd’s death, as well as parts of Capitol Hill.

Officers retreated from the area in an effort to quell the violence– which included multiple shootings, one that was sparked after a man rammed his vehicle into a crowd of protesters. Police officers have deployed tear gas and pepper spray to disperse large groups of people.

“We wanted to be able to facilitate and support peaceful demonstrations,” Nollette said.

Demonstrations within the autonomous zone have been mostly peaceful, with no reports of violence, but police say armed guards have been surrounding the perimeter of the region and residents who live within the boundaries are “forced to show ID to prove you “belong” there,” a law enforcement official told Fox News.

“I have nothing but deep admiration for and total confidence in General Milley as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” the South Carolina Republican tweeted on Thursday. “I support his statement in both substance and spirit regarding the recent presidential visit to St. Johns.”

Graham added, “General Milley is a tremendous military leader who understands the long tradition of maintaining an apolitical, nonpartisan military.”

Milley earlier on Thursday called his appearance in a controversial White House photo-op a “mistake,” saying that his presence “created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”
