Labor Day Violence

These incidents occurred in several cities.

Twenty-two individuals were arrested after a large group marched from the International District down to the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild (SPOG) building on 4th Avenue South. The arrests were for arson, assault, obstructing and failure to disperse.

Officers recovered intact Molotov cocktails dropped by rioters outside the building as officers began making arrests. Officers arrested a number of individuals on 4th Avenue South as they continued to receive rocks, bottles, and explosives thrown at them by rioters.
with the recently shared footage of the death of Daniel Prude in Rochester, New York in March, sparking the new wave of outrage.

Similar scenes have played out across the county with a diner in Washington D.C. last week cornered by a group of anti-racism protesters outside a restaurant. In another incident, diners in Rochester were also confronted by a large group of demonstrators.

'We're shutting your party down,' one woman was seen shouting in the face of a New York diner as demonstrators smashed the customer's glasses in front of their faces, broke plates, overturned chairs and chanted at them to get out.

A second video taken in Pittsburgh over the weekend shows a demonstrator speaking with a megaphone while walking next to a cyclist. It's unclear what is said, but the demonstrator nudges the cyclist with his megaphone. The cyclist swats the demonstrator in response, but a second protester hits the man from behind.

Police in Pittsburgh are said to have launched an investigation into both clips; there were no arrests during Saturday's protest. ... ester.html
