Lowlife derelicts destroy private property to show “the system” they mean business.

Police say that black-clad May Day marchers hurled wrenches and rocks at officers and hit police with sticks as a Friday evening march through Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood turned violent, injuring three officers–two seriously.
Police responded with pepper spray, pepper balls and flash bang grenades. Officers said several dozen vehicles were damaged. Windows were broken in neighborhood businesses.
Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said one officer had a dislocated shoulder, a second had a broken wrist, and a third had a burn injury to his leg and ankle. They’re recovering at Harborview Medical Center.
“Thankfully, they’re all conscious,” O’Toole said. “We talked to them. They’re in good spirits. Just happy the situation didn’t become more serious.”
……Protesters hurled bottles, rocks, bricks, wrenches, and other projectiles at police, who responded by utilizing pepper spray and pepper balls to break up the increasingly violent crowd, police said. They added protestors also began pushing barricades and trash cans into roadways, and raided a fenced construction site for items they later burned in the street.
The protestors marched west to the cusp of I-5 near Pine Street, briefly forcing the closure of the northbound offramp to Olive Street. But several dozen police officers used their bicycles, flash bangs and pepper spray to push the protestors back up toward Capitol Hill and eventually hemmed them in at the Seattle Central College plaza where they began what was billed as an anti-capitalist march.
“The march quickly went violent,” Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said. “The officers made the appropriate decision to stop that march at that point.”
“Anti-capitalist march”; which means most, if not all the disgruntled children, are unemployed and living in their parent’s basement.

A May Day protest and march through the streets of Downtown Oakland turned violent Friday evening, with some businesses and cars being vandalized.
Friday’s protest began peacefully. About 500 people protesting several issues, from police brutality to capitalism, marched from Frank Ogawa Plaza and eventually up Broadway.
Later on, vandals went on a rampage. They broke windows of business and vehicles and set a car on fire on the Broadway Auto Row.
One of the marchers said she was okay with vandalism that targeted big business.
“I see it like a game of chess and if one day we can throw rocks at police, right or wrong, however you feel about it, then that’s a day we took a stand. And that, in my mind, to some extent, is a win against the system,” Melissa Crosby said.
Melissa is a little airhead who possesses neither the motivation nor the skill set to achieve anything remotely similar to the success of the very businesses she and her cohorts hate.
