A lensman for Seattle TV station KIRO, Jon Jussero, inadvertently got here up with an precise journalistic scoop yesterday. He was headed for the King County jail in downtown Seattle for a narrative when his automotive was set upon by “mostly peaceful” protesters.
What’s documented above is precise journalism in motion. Jussero managed to uncover — all by himself — one of many main components behind the biggest gun-buying surge in American historical past.
Civil unrest, lawless, frequently violent habits, masked people threatening motorists in the midst of main cities…all with none pushback from police or prosecutors. They function within the open — in broad daylight right here — with whole impunity.
Strangely, not all the reactions to what occurred to Mr. Jussero have been sympathetic.
Welcome to what your career has created. Your colleagues call this serene, justified, & kinds of issues it isn’t. I wager you might really feel their peacefulness. Normal Peaceful individuals don’t act that manner, & don’t trigger concern. Now you may begin telling the reality of who they’re.

Some within the crowd photographed Jussero’s license plate, threatened to interrupt his home windows and are available to his dwelling to harass him (or worse) some extra. He might need referred to as the police for assist, however, sadly, the native
politburo metropolis council has already defunded the Seattle police department and driven the Chief out of her job. So who is aware of how lengthy it might have taken the cops who haven’t quit but to reply…if in any respect.
So there you will have it. Actual journalisming in motion, uncovering the premise for one of many largest tales of the 12 months, proper earlier than your eyes. As Uncle Walter would have intoned in his mellifluous baritone, that’s the way it is…so hold shopping for these weapons and ammo (and get a carry allow) as a result of there’s no signal of this altering any time quickly.
