Driver Plows Through Protesters In Seattle, Killing One, No Protests

Strange how this story is mostly just a local one, right? A driver speeds through a group of BLM protesters and virtually no one is covering it outside of Seattle. This is rather graphic

Most people would slow down if they saw vehicles stopped in the road, right? No brakelights till driver saw the people, but still didn’t really slow down. The driver did stop down the road, and the protesters started coming his way. It sure sounds like gunfire, eh? So, driver took off. The Seattle Times originally used an AP article, replacing with a locally written one. An now we see

1 protester dead, 1 injured after man drives into protesters on I-5 in Seattle

One person was killed and another was seriously injured after a driver plowed into a nightly protest on a closed stretch of Interstate 5 in Seattle early Saturday.

Summer Taylor, a 24-year-old from Seattle, died Saturday night at Harborview Medical Center, said Harborview Medical Center spokesperson Susan Gregg. Diaz Love, a 32-year-old from Portland, Oregon, was in serious condition in the intensive-care unit Saturday night.

Washington State Patrol said the driver was Dawit Kelete, 27, of Seattle. He was booked into King County Jail on Saturday morning on investigation of felony vehicular assault. Troopers don’t believe impairment was a factor and said Kelete drove the wrong way on the Stewart Street off-ramp to enter the interstate, which had been partially shut down in response to protesters.

The ladies were part of the Black Femme March. Hit the link, and you’ll see that neither is black. As lilly white liberal as it gets. Doesn’t mean they should be run over. And the driver? Can you guess?

So, no protests? Huh. He attacked the Black Femme March. He’s in very deep trouble, BTW, since he snuck on the freeway, since much was closed. I suspect he wanted to open up his Jaguar.

You know who will also be in trouble? The State Police and DOT

State Patrol closed both directions of I-5 along downtown Seattle shortly before midnight Friday, when it appeared protesters would enter the roadway. Troopers and personnel from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) used their vehicles to block on-ramps between Interstate 90 and Highway 520, State Patrol spokesperson Chase Van Cleave said.

Protesters with the Black Femme March stopped on the interstate on their way back to Capitol Hill after going on their nightly march to the Seattle Police Department’s West Precinct. Moments before the car struck the demonstrators, the crowd had been dancing to the Cupid Shuffle, videos show.

Maybe they shouldn’t be on a freaking highway, even at 1 in the morning. And law enforcement should have kept them off, not sorta blocked off an Interstate. It is against the law for pedestrians to be on the highway, much less blocking it off. I guess I didn’t retweet it, but there was a photo of some cones and a giant garbage bin blocking off one entranceway.

State Patrol announced Saturday evening that it would no longer allow protesters on the interstate.

The change in strategy comes as protests against police brutality and racism enter their second month in Seattle. The hit-and-run was the latest traumatic event to occur at or near protest areas, including shootings near the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, which was shut down by police Wednesday.

“Blocking a freeway is a crime and no longer are we going to enable that criminal conduct to continue,” said State Patrol Capt. Ron Mead, who made the decision to no longer close the interstate. “We are not going to be allowing protesters to access the freeway unimpeded, and there are consequences for criminal conduct.”

And the State Police allowed it. How big a lawsuit do you think it will be for the State Police helping the criminal conduct to happen.

In related news, the Gov on Minnesota, who did nothing when the riots started in Minneapolis, wants Trump to declare the area a federal disaster zone and get around $15 million to help fix it. And one of the people arrested for the Molotov cocktail incident in NYC, who’s an uber-white liberal, attempted to throw her black Comrades under the bus.
