20 September 2021
A little more than a dozen protesters are left at the intersection of Broadway and Pine near Cal Anderson Park. At one point we saw protesters dragging yellow police tape across the intersection, blocking traffic. Police then moved in and removed tape.
Protesters put fake body bags outside of @JSOPIO to make a statement against racial injustice & police brutality. They're holding signs saying "protect and serve not kill". These protesters say they need more done by @lennycurry than just taking down Confederate statues.
More arrests have been made as @SeattlePD work to clear the CHOP Zone area. 44 protestors were arrested overnight.

Lots of people coughing, the projectiles were pepper balls
So again the police came out and again they shot balls at people and then yet again they retreate into the JC. I would love for someone to explain how the aim of this is anything other than spurning anger in the citizenry. Would love. "Let us descalate random violence".
