Studio 2.8, December 7, 2019, Westlake Mall Seattle, Seattle Police Arrest Violent Anarcho-Communist Domestic Terrorists
In this Studio 2.8 photography photo, produced on December 7, 2019 in front of Seattle's Westlake Mall, several Seattle Police officers were in the process of subduing and arresting a violent masked anarcho-communist "black bloc" participant who had been trying to attack a group of people who had marched through the downtown Seattle streets to commemorate Pearl Harbor Day. Pearl Harbor Day commemorates the U.S. military veteran lives that were lost when the Japanese military attacked the Naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
The accompanying Studio 2.8 video clip presented below, provides a first person video perspective on the intensity and urgency that filled the scene as a large group of anarcho-communist domestic terrorists, in "black bloc" disguises, who had been hunting and stalking Pearl Harbor Day commemoration marchers through the streets of downtown Seattle on December 7, 2019, suddenly decided to ambush and attack the Pearl Harbor Day event marchers. However, a large squadron of crowd control trained Seattle Police officers intervened before the communist anarchists had a chance to injure any of the Pearl Harbor Day marchers, and in response arrested two of the anarchists. The two anarchists who were arrested in front of Seattle's Westlake Mall were arrested primarily because they had been trying to push through the cordons of bicycle barrier lines established by the Seattle Police to deter the anarchist attackers and to create a protective barrier between the anarchists and the Pearl Harbor Day marchers. In charge of the specially trained Seattle Police crowd control trained officers on Saturday December 7, 2019 was Seattle Police Captain Todd Kibbee. In the video clip below Captain Todd Kibbee can be seen and heard briefly as he shouted at civilians to get out of the way so that his officers could complete their arrests. In addition to the two anarcho-communist anarchist arrested during the moments recorded in the video below, the Seattle Police had earlier arrested at least two additional "antifa" anarchists who had tried to attack the Pearl Harbor Day event marchers as the marchers moved through the streets of downtown Seattle to the east of Westlake Mall and Park.
