So this happened. Idiots in Everett, Washington tonight tried to block traffic and JUMPED ON THE HOOD OF THE CAR, and then whine about a vehicle "trying to drive into a group of 50 protesters" - this is absolute insanity #Seattleprotests
By the way, this guy was running for congress. He also was transporting supplies down to the Portland rioters. #Seattleprotests
Stunning and brave. #Seattle

For some reason Republicans and Trump keep saying cities like #Seattle are full of rioters, looters, and protestors — well here’s a live look at the heart of where protests in Seattle where. Life has returned to normal(ish).
I went looking for some drama, and found none. Just people out eating at restaurants.
Just for comparisons-sake, here’s what it looked like at the height of the protests. This is that same precinct, and you can see several streets and blocks were occupied. Now there is no sign of what happened here not long ago.

A bit earlier in #Seattle, terrorists go to work smashing windows and destroying property, protesters explain that the owner might be a "white supremacist" who has been "making threats against protesters" to justify the attack (1/2)
"Are you the owner of this place? I heard the owner of the place was threatening protesters, he said he was gonna shoot people. There's rumors that he might even be a white supremacist" - patrons were inside when they smashed the windows #Seattle (2/2)

Did you know...

That Portland #Police Association (#PPA) President Darryl Turner is also the President of #ORCOPS, the Oregon Coalition of Police & Sheriffs, which he helped launch in 2015?

#PortlandOregon #PortlandOR #PDX #PDXpolice #PoliceUnions #PoliceBrutality #PoliceReform Image
ORCOPS website says "ORCOPS uses the Portland Police Association office as a home base with an on-staff social media manager, in-house communications, and shared resources so our overhead is minimal."
Tom Perkins is the Secretary-Treasurer, who is also from the #PPA.

#pdx #gov ImageImage
#ORCORPS touts itself as saying that their "members are the only law enforcement advocacy group in Oregon with a proven history of influence and representation in the State legislature."

This means they like to be involved in law & policy making.

"Violent tactics may achieve short-term gains such as boosting morale, winning street battles, gaining substantial media attention, or avenging harms." 1/ #portland #seattle @EricaChenoweth foreignpolicy.com/2019/12/18/vio…
Street fighting may be disruptive, but it does not generally signal to a regime that a movement has long-term staying power. Such activities typically depress movement turnout, increase widespread repression toward dissidents & their suspected supporters, unify security forces.2/
"Most importantly, there is an overwhelming scholarly consensus that the introduction of violence by protesters is typically followed by an escalation and intensification of state violence." 3/

So clearly today is not the day we get to have a life. Catching up now, but 11th & Pine (once again) is a major friction point between protesters and police. We've seen flash bangs, pepper spray and blast balls all used in the last few minutes.

Watch: twitch.tv/SeattleProtest…
Police are now trying shoot pepper spray through the front line umbrella brigade.

#Seattle
#seattleprotestcomm
#seattleprotests
We've heard repeated reports that flashbangs have lobbed into the crowds and that media have been targeted by both pepper spray and rubber bullets.

BREAKING: Judge Robart has granted temporary restraining order request by @TheJusticeDept that should block #Seattle crowd control weapon ban from taking effect and maintain status quo which maintains previous TRO blocking @SeattlePD use of CCW. Awaiting written order @KIRORadio
I believe the net result of this allows SPD more wiggle room to use crowd control weapons if Chief Best authorizes under specific conditions, which was allowed under the TRO-turned injunction issued by a different judge.
Important note :Judge Robart stressed TRO was to be very "temporary" as he wants to stay on track to get report on impact of @SeattleCouncil CCW ord. from accountability partners on 8/15 & hear more on impact to consent decree/SPD policy 1 wk after. @KIRORadio #seattleprotests
