Violence Erupts In Seattle May Day

34876

These idiots seem like being violent for the sake of being violent. The cool thing to do.
Check it out:

Several people have been arrested after a May Day protest in downtown Seattle turned violent Tuesday night.

Q13 Fox reports police were using pepper spray and “ball blasts,” which give off a bang and a dose of pepper, to control the crowd.

The protest turned violent around 7:45 p.m., with protesters throwing rocks, bottles, metal bars at officers. Police officers ordered the protesters to clear the area or face arrest.

Reuters reports that one protester was seen using a skateboard to smash windows at a Walgreens drug store in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, and others overturned trash cans and lined up newspaper display racks to block police.

Seattle police tell Reuters that as of 9 p.m. local time, 11 adults and 2 juveniles had been arrested for assaults and property damage. Several people were shown on local TV stations being taken into custody.
