I am at Seattle right now, just less then 10 min ago at 9 PM ET at downtown 
Seattle Westlake center, over hundreds of police march in and brutally break 
in the last remain 50-100 protesters. They usees chemical weapons such as 
pepper spray and arrest dozen who refuse to leave!

The only corporate media outlet reporting the situation is the nitrous 
Channel 4 KOMO Seattle TV--they label the protesters "trouble makers", 
"stubborn" and "possibly to involve in violence" (even the entire day no 
violence had been happened), and "credit" the Seattle police had been very

****9:45 PM Police Arresting ALL 200 Remaining N30 Protesters in Downtown 
****Please Pass Widely!!!!

This just in! KOMO channel 4 says "it's all over!" Police encircle all the 
remaining around 50-100(?) protesters and arresting them all right now at 4th 
and Blanchard at westlake park area of downtown Seattle.

While the TV and the cop insist they had been very 'accommodate' the earlier 
bigger group of day time protesters, "The police had finally have enough of 
it." The KOMO news cast says.

The Seattle 'Top Cop' Gil Kerlikowsko says these small group of protesters 
had been 'provoking' and attack police so he had no choice but come in and 
arrest them all, he accuse these group of protesters "failing to leave" and 
"disturbing the pedestrians" and these remaining protesters are "not talking 
about the cause." He says.

Kerlikowsko refuse to tell the TV reporter where will all these protesters 
jail! But possibly King County Jail.
