Dozens of Seattle police officers were injured during another lawless weekend in the city as demonstrations again devolved into destruction and attacks on law enforcement.
Police bodycam footage shared Sunday shows a supercut of protesters throwing rocks, bottles, wood and explosives at officers during Saturday’s protests in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
Rioters also set fire to a portable trailer and threw an explosive device at the police department’s East District precinct, leaving an 8-inch hole in the side of the building, police said.
Police declared a riot and deployed sponge rounds, OC spray, and blast balls to disperse protesters. At least 47 people were arrested for assaults on officers, obstruction, and failure to disperse.SHARE THIS STORY WITH THE WORLD
