Good Evening, everyone; this is Michelle Davenport with the 10 o’clock Eyewitness news report.

Our top story tonight comes from Redmond-Touristville, Seattle where Knight Errant officers have posted a temporary security perimeter around the Redmond City Hall complex after protestors demonstrated over the recently enforced Monroe district evacuation.
Early this morning, various civil organizations rallied in front of the office of Mayor Sonja Scholl in Redmond demonstrating against the brash actions and civil unrest that has been created due to the removal inhabitants in the Monroe district. Despite the protests, Mayor Scholl stood by her previous statements that all policies and procedures had been followed and was sanctioned within the laws of the city. The Metroplex Civic Review Board and Oversight Commission have been appraising the matter over the past two days and report that no discrepancies have been found, thus giving support to Scholl’s claim. Protestors are not satisfied and claim Scholl was abusing her powers of office and the metroplex is merely “covering their own”, despite the Scholl’s minimal mention in the greater Seattle political arena.

Later that afternoon, more groups from various parts arrived, though with different agendas. Members of the Humanis Poli-club began to preach their propaganda and claim support for the actions which brought about the arrival of Sons of Sauron members. Within minutes, violence erupted amongst the crowd resulting in a rowdy mob and riot conditions. Lone Star officers were on the scene to monitor conditions and keep the peace though too few officers were on hand to deal with the situation.

Knight Errant teams were dispatched and arrived within minutes and were able to quell the mob and break up the rampaging crowd. Lone Star patrols arrived some time later after the fights had subsided. Several arrests were made by Knight Errant officers, though Lone Star officers immediately protested and demanded that all apprehended individuals be placed in their custody. KE officers on the scene refused and Metroplex officials had to be called in. Metroplex officials denied LS’s claim to the police action noting that KE responded and dealt with the situation, therefore they had the right to act and LS could not simply take claim with no actual effort in the event. LS officials have since issued a statement that they are filing a civil suit against for lost revenues and damages. KE officials have replied that they are ready and willing to counter, though expect LS’s case to be dismissed in any court.

Law Enforcement Breach "Z-zone" of Redmond

KIRO Eyewitness News: Channel 7: Seattle
Posted by: Reporter: Michelle Davenport
Good Evening, everyone; this is Michelle Davenport with the 10 o’clock Eyewitness news report.
Our top story tonight comes from Redmond, Seattle where Knight Errant officers and Wuxing Security Specialists have combined efforts in a threat assessment and evacuation of the Monroe District of North Redmond.

Knight Errant Fire Watch Teams and Wuxing Security Teams arrived on the scene early this morning to the Northeast Corner of the Redmond in full tactical and riot control gear. KE officials report that multiple shootings and assaults on officers occurred as they moved into the area. One officer was killed and others sustained moderate to minor injuries. KE confirms that twenty plus unregistered squatters were killed during the various attacks. Among the fatalities were many known or suspected gang affiliates and wanted criminals, according to reports. Numerous arrests were made as the joint security forces begun to sweep through the area. clearing out a five square blocks and the remaining two square kilometer area once a commercially zoned region.

Given the rather abrupt nature of this martial law action, Mayor Sonja Scholl was asked to comment on the event in question within her district. “For every honest citizen seeking their own pursuit of life and prosperity, there are five ‘illegal’ or non-registered denizens and transients standing in the way of progress for this district. It is these types of inhabitants acting like thorny weeds choking the life out of potential blooming wheat field. As Mayor, I have been sworn to do what is best for the state of the district and people whom reside within. By the powers granted unto me as Mayor, I made an executive decision to take action for the prosperity of this district. Though the actions will appear militant and harsh, they are within my control to confirm or deny. I assure the people Redmond and those of Seattle proper that these actions were made known publicly and repeatedly to the people taking up unlicensed residence within the Monroe area, weeks, even months, prior to this unfortunate event.”

The governor’s office declined to comment on the actions that have taken place directly, however it has been made known that the Metroplex Civic Review Board and Oversight Commission will be appraising the matter. So, far no discrepancies have been reported.
Mayor Scholl’s actions have been consider by many as “aggressive” and “out-of-character” as several public and political groups have spoken out against Mayor Scholl’s measures claiming discrimination and abuse of office. Thus far, only chatter across the matrix has turned any publicity for or against her statements and actions

Seattle Chosen for Potential Site of Wuxing Skytower

KIRO Eyewitness News: Channel 7: Seattle
Posted by: Reporter: Michelle Davenport
Good Evening, everyone; this is Michelle Davenport with the 10 o’clock Eyewitness news report.
Our top story tonight comes from the heart of the Seattle Metroplex where it has been announced that Seattle itself has be selected for a new undertaking with the Hong Kong based, Wuxing Corporation.

In a formal press release given by the Governor’s Office, Seattle UCAS and Vancouver SSC have been chosen as two finalists in search to build a new “Skytower”. Wuxing CEO, Wu Ling-Wei, expressed that the building of the new Skytower in a major metropolitan area would allow for their products to be tailored more directly to the local markets. In regards to choosing to build in North America, Ling-Wei noted that having such a place within either city would better accommodate for changes in the Western Markets.

Wuxing is sending the famed and respected Geomancer, Master Chip Ching-Hwa to both cities to assess the energies of the chosen areas for a proper placement. After his evaluation, Master Ching-Hwa will return to the corporate headquarters to make his report before the board of directors.

Many questions have been raised to the where the specific build site will be in the greater Seattle area, however the office of the Governor has declined to comment on the particulars as to where the survey will take place in the interests of the security. Despite the secrecy and discretion placed upon this major urban undertaking, Sonja Scholl, the mayor of Redmond was willing to discuss the matter.

“For far too long, Redmond has been cast aside as the unwanted blemish on this UCAS city-state.” Scholl firmly admitted. “The Seattle Metroplex has little working land in which to lay the groundwork for such a construction project. Many of the other AAA corporations have consumed the other districts and will not take kindly to having one of their competitors leering over them, in a manner of speaking. Redmond is has been left alone with ample opportunity to be open to such an endeavor. This enterprise is exactly the type of project that will greatly benefit an urban renewal for the Redmond area.”
According to recent matrix polls on the subject, man scoff at the idea of Redmond being the site of new tower and have commented thus. There has been no clear cut opinion put upon where the location in Seattle may come to be, though it is to be known approximately within the next few days.
