Seattle Protests, Black Lives Matter, July 2, 2020, Seattle Police West Precinct Laila Andrews Arrested
This Studio 2.8 photography gallery of photographs was produced on the evening of Thursday July 2, 2020, in front of the Seattle Police West Precinct in Seattle on Virginia Street between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue. In this gallery of Studio 2.8 photography photos, an African American Black Lives Matter protester named Laila Andrews was arrested by the Seattle Police after Andrews allegedly used spray paint to scrawl graffiti on the outside wall of a building at 8th Avenue and Virginia Street across from the Seattle Police West Precinct building.
Before officers with the Seattle Police Department arrested Laila Andrews, Laila Andrews is alleged to have used spray paint to scrawl political slogans onto the wall of the building at the southeast corner of Virginia Street and 9th Avenue. In the fourth of the four photographs in the Studio 2.8 photo gallery above, the political slogans that Laila Andrews is alleged to have painted onto the building there are visible in that photograph. Some of the political slogans that Seattle Police allege that Laila Andrews scrawled onto the building are "Protect Black Women", "Black Justice Help Us!", "You Can't Stop Us" and several other phrases.
In the first two of the four Studio 2.8 Photography photos in the gallery above, Laila Andrews can be seen struggling with all her might to resist the Seattle Police officers who had handcuffed her and were dragging her bodily toward their jail transport van. In the third of the four Studio 2.8 Photography photos above, Laila Andrews can be seen inside the Seattle Police jail transport van, as officers removed goggles that Andrews was wearing and as officers searched her and removed extraneous clothing before locking her into the police van for transportation to Seattle's King County jail for arrest processing and booking.
Laila Andrews spent the weekend in the King County Jail from Thursday July 2, 2020 until Monday July 6, 2020, because of the Independence Day holiday weekend. The court appears to have released Laila Andrews on Andrews' own recognizance, but with conditions, pending possible felony malicious mischief charges, RCW 9A.48.080, that may be filed against Laila Andrews in King County Superior Court by the King County Prosecuting Attorney's office.
