not brutality-related; turns out crimes can be addressed without lethal force Face screaming in fear The protestors occupying the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone eject a white guy who broke a window of the East Precinct police station [@NaveedAJamali]
how many Seattle cops and National Guardsmen does it take to beat one homeless person? Looks like at least 6 here. (I bet Seattle would save a bundle if they spent some of their teargas budget on social services that help the homeless) [@slydesilva]
"But T. Greg," you ask, "he's not a cop so why did this get assigned number 420?" Because after a week of police indiscriminately shooting unarmed and peaceful protestors, take a wild guess how they handled this guy? [@luvmemuch]
a man drives into the crowd of protestors in downtown Seattle, shoots a guy as he gets out of the car, then makes his way through the crowd to the police to turn himself in. 3 more vids coming on this... [@SeanNyberg]
I'm giving these all different numbers because they're all so goddamn outrageous. Read. Then watch. Also, watch thread which starts with: "BREAKING: @SeattlePD using flash bangs to disperse crowd, people throwing things at officers. A piece of one of those bangs just hit my leg. This is quickly getting out of hand. Protesters hadn’t thrown or done anything it seems to provoke this #KOMONews"
police ask a huge crowd to take 5 steps back – then when they realize it's impossible, they indiscriminately start pepper-spraying everyone. Notice the unlawful seizures of private property (umbrellas, a road cone). [@lovebarofficial]
not a brutality video, but instead showing the scale of the protestors. *Years* of data – decades likely – have repeatedly proven that crackdowns radicalize people and lead to more protestors. This is what cops rioting causes
police arrest a protestor using the same knee-on-neck technique used to murder #GeorgeFloyd Another protestor yells "GET YOUR FUCKING KNEE OFF HIS NECK" – at which point the *other* officer forcibly moves the first officer's leg
