In our news wrap Wednesday, Seattle police cleared protesters from a so-called “occupied zone” near the city’s downtown. Violence had flared there recently, with two people killed and six others wounded in shootings. Also, lawmakers in New York City agreed to shift $1 billion in police funding to education and social service programs. Mayor Bill de Blasio called the move “the right balance.”
