May Day demonstrators who marched through Seattle turned violent Tuesday, with black-clad protesters using sticks and bats to smash stores and automobile windows.

It was the Klan in disguise.
Two arrests?? Two? Are you frigging kidding me? There were hundreds of people marching and only 2 arrests were made? No wonder this happy horse shit happens in Seattle every year or so. They're a bunch of weak sisters unwilling to defend themselves...they deserve what they get.
being a Seattle cop must be a thankless job.
being second guessed by muck racking liberal lieyers all the time leads to this.
These events are the perfect time for social darwinism.
You separate one or two leaders from the pack and beat the living snot out of them. Eventually word gets back and the idiots go back to mommy and daddy’s basement.
Add an ebola scare in there and you will never ever see them again. Make it fun. Say Halliburton is poisoning them. Bring a Halliburton sign to a demonstration and watch the idiots run away. Want to make it more fun? As they run, chase after them screaming “we are all halliburton!”
>>...if they were Tea Party members trying to give OWS a bad name.<<
According to the article the “black-clad” people doing the damage discarded their black clothing which allowed them to blend back into the crowd. That would be the OWS crowd, of course.
Questions for reporters:
1) What was the ratio of black-clad protesters to the number marching in total? 1%? 5%?, 50%? Nearly all of them?
2) What did your interviews of those arrested reveal as to their political affiliations?
3) What did your interviews of the non-”black-clad” marchers reveal about their attitudes toward those doing the damage, and about their attempt to blend in with supposedly law-abiding marchers?
Imagine what the reaction of the Tea Partiers would be if a bunch of nincompoops attempted to despoil a Tea Party gathering. They’d likely be detained by the law-abiding (and litter-free) Tea Partiers and held for the police. Not so with the “law-abiding” portion of the OWS mobs. They just provide them sanctuary apparently.
Obama and the Left are going to regret linking themselves politically to this “99%” mob, which is actually more like the .0000001%.
-—...and interrogate them to determine if they were Tea Party members trying to give OWS a bad name.-—
This was inevitable.
I must have missed that issue of GQ.
Police in the Pacific Northwest are not allowed to arrest protestors except in extreme cases of physical violence.
Th ACTUAL “emergency” is that the non-judgmental, progressive Seattle liberals in charge, refuse to enforce EXISTING laws against their fellow Useful Idiots.
Her mistake was that she didn't stand in her doorway with a pump-action 12 gauge, wearing a bandolier of shells.
They are on a very short leash. Anything that they do (like make a false arrest or react violently to provocation from black clad thugs) will be used against the Police Department and the individual officers.
The black clad thugs attended workshops where they were taught tactics and their legal rights. They were taught how to both bait the police and to create headlines.
Yes, if would have been nice to see 50 or 200 people arrested, but the legal aftermath of that would have been used to destroy the Seattle Police Department and many officers lives and livelihood.
Actually from what I read this morning there were 8 arrests and the media has been playing film footage of black clad thugs changing out of their clothes and exposing their faces before melting back into the crowd. Federal agents are also investigating damage at the old federal courthouse.
Hopefully some good police work will identify others within the black thug movement and bring them to trial. Personally, I feel that someone needs to throw the book at these thugs.
“Is that a banana peel on his head???”
Ha! I thought the same thing!
Maybe he is a member of the newly-formed Banana Party!
More than likely he's a member if the newly-formed Banana Republic!
I thought the same thing...ya beat me to it. :-)
LOL - a picture worth WAAAAAAAAA more than a thousand words... Thanks for sharing.
“Make it fun. Say Halliburton is poisoning them. Bring a Halliburton sign to a demonstration and watch the idiots run away. Want to make it more fun? As they run, chase after them screaming we are all halliburton!
Or, have signs that say “Halliburton stands with Occupy Movement”.
And, as often as possible——on tea shirts and signs, “I am Breitbart”.
I'm sure they thought they were doing espionage but they were basically chicken shit and not ready for paradise and 72 virgins. If they felt they were the underground, they sure shag-assed from the area where Iraqi people could identify them.
“being a Seattle cop must be a thankless job”
Seattle, San Francisco with $hitty weather!
" Sure enough...Gritty.
They are just following their Great Leader, OBAMA I, and his apparent need to turn America into a Banana republic. Sorry bunch of assholes.
I'm using a**hole a lot today because I am definitely not in a forgiving mood, what with "Obama I" going overseas to claim the glory of taking down bin Laden.
While there, he is probably doling out lots of "his" Obama Stash.
An acquaintance was working at the Verizon store in downtown Seattle last night, minding his own business, when a sledge hammer came through the window next to him.
do not...repeat...do not expect the police to protect you....if you are in a situation with more than a couple of thugs, the cops will wait until all is safe first...just like Columbine....
Arm the store owners and this crap stops cold.
For better or worse, that sort of thing tends to happen when you gun down deaf woodcarvers...
Assault with a deadly weapon. Maybe a surveillance camera captured the thrower...
