Studio 2.8 Video - Watch As The Crime Occurred, As John Lindsay Bennett Committed Felony Attempted Robbery and Felony Hate Crime in Seattle
In this Studio 2.8 exclusive video, watch video of a felony criminal act in progress as a man named John Lindsay Bennett attacked a Studio 2.8 Photography photojournalist in broad daylight as the photojournalist was leaving the George Floyd Black Live Matter Racial Justice political protests that were occurring on Seattle's Capitol Hill near the Seattle Police East Precinct on Sunday May 31, 2020.
As the Studio 2.8 photography video above begins, a Studio 2.8 photography photojournalist was walking west along Pike Street in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood, about two blocks away from the political protests that had been occurring along Pine Street near the intersection of 11th Avenue. The man wore a red shirt with the phrase "Make Racism Wrong Again", which would turn out be to ironic and prophetic since this man, identified by the Seattle Police and the King County Superior Court as John Lindsay Bennett, aka John L. Bennett, aka John Bennett, would later be charged by Seattle's King County Prosecuting Attorney's office with racial bias motivated felony Hate Crime.
In the high definition Studio 2.8 video above, the photojournalist turned to see who was around in the area just in time to see the man in the red shirt, a total stranger, walking along the north Pike Street sidewalk, who then left the sidewalk, walking into the street toward the master Studio 2.8 photojournalist. In the video, the Studio 2.8 photojournalist can be heard saying, "you are going to need to back off", to which the stranger in the red shirt responded, "do I?", to which the Studio 2.8 photojournalist then further replied, simply, "yes". Seconds later, the stranger in the red shirt grabbed the senior citizen woman of color photojournalist with both hands and tackled the woman to the street's pavement. As the stranger in the red shirt battered the Studio 2.8 photojournalist and tried to rob her professional camera equipment, destroying much of it in the process, the stranger in the red shirt with the phrase "Make Racism Wrong Again" on it shouted, "She's a "Nazi!", over and over again. In other words, a total stranger who seems to slanderously and irrationally believe that the senior citizen woman of color he attacked was a "Nazi", seemed to believe that such a belief, albeit completely irrational and entirely criminal, was some sort of basis to criminally batter and criminally rob the woman. Multiple bystanders pulled the man in the red shirt off of the Studio 2.8 photojournalist laying the ground.
Because hundreds of Seattle Police officers were very nearby because of the huge racial justice political protests just blocks away, a team of Seattle Police officers arrived within seconds because bystanders on the street had immediately dialed the 911 emergency service upon observing the man tackle and attack a woman in the street, suddenly, unreasonably, feloniously, in broad daylight, knowing that hundreds of police were nearby and that bystanders would, and did, observe his criminal act. The Seattle Police immediately arrested and handcuffed the man in the red shirt with the "Make Racism Wrong Again" phrase on it, a phrase that is ironic because this man has been charged by Seattle's King County Prosecuting Attorney's office with racially motivated felony hate crime.
The man in the Studio 2.8 photography video above, one John Lindsay Bennett aka John Bennett, has been charged with felony First Degree Attempted Robbery and with felony Hate Crime and is currently being prosecuted in Seattle's King County Superior Court. As of June 2020, the man in this video is being held in Seattle's King County Jail on $100,000.00 bail, pending a trial or his guilty plea.
