Seattle authorities have finally decided that enough is enough and have put an end to “CHOP.”

The area that is formally known as the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” was occupied by a small rebellion who sought out to create sort of a free for all in the six-block radius right there in the heart of Seattle. Protesters held their ground for several weeks before deadly shootings within CHOP forced police to take action and move in to keep the peace.

A Wendy’s in Atlanta, Georgia has now turned into the latest venue for protesters to occupy.

After a night of a dozen shootings, including one in which an 8-year-old girl was killed, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Sunday said protesters could no longer occupy the Wendy’s where a police officer shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last month.

The girl, identified by police as Secoriea Turner, was killed not far from the scene where Brooks was shot on June 12, Atlanta’s Fox 5 reported, citing police.

Police said Turner was riding in a car with her mother and another adult when a group fired multiple times at the vehicle, hitting the girl.

In another area of the city, an illegal car party ended in gunfire one night after a vehicle collided with another, and the two drivers escalated to an altercation.

Mayor Bottoms was very upset by this and said, “Now we are demanding action for Secoriea Turner, and all other people who were shot in Atlanta last night. Enough is enough. If you want people to take us seriously and you don’t want us to lose this movement, we can’t lose each other.”

The Wendys has already been gutted by arson and is beyond saving, which was itself an act of the protesters.
