East Precinct Officers Defend East Precinct HQ From Dangerous Anarchists!

None shall pass! East Precinct officer protect their clubhouse from rowdy anarchists at 11th and Pine.
  • Goldy | The Stranger
  • None shall pass! East Precinct officers at 11th and Pine, preparing to defend their clubhouse against rowdy anarchists.

Dangerous radicals are gathering down the street at Seattle Central Community College for a May Day protest, but don't you worry, the police are safe, having cautiously cordoned off the streets and sidewalks in a one-block radius surrounding the East Precinct headquarters at 12th and Pine.

Barriers are being manned at 13th to the east, Pike to the south, 11th to the west, and whatever that street is one block to the north of Pine.

The officers I questioned, all of whom say they aren't authorized to talk to the press ("That's okay," I assured them, "according to the attorney general I'm not the press." They still wouldn't talk), thought the cordon might remain for a couple hours or more... a bit of an inconvenience to the businesses in the neighborhood, not to mention the poor chumps who've parked their cars there.

In the meanwhile, if you're craving a gelato or maybe a Montreal-style wood-fired bagel, fuck you.

KUOW reports that there are at least 10 clowns downtown and that there may be a "clown sit down"

Last time I checked, Police States do that all the time.

Deny citizens bagels due to extreme paranoia, that is.

I live across the street from the station. Every time this happens I have to convince a police man to let me get home... I'm glad my apartment is safe today, though. :)

Paranoia, have you seen the violence that has been going on?

On the other hand, if you had to put up with your very large storefront windows regularly getting smashed for fun by these yahoos, you might try to find a way to avoid it. Remember, it's the taxpayers who pay to replace them.

It is? I would assume insurance covers that, at least to replace/fix private property.

@11 The East Precinct is City-owned property, and the City is self-insured.

There has been a couple of cops guarding the back entrance of the 8th and Virginia station all day. They look bored as hell.
