Police raided an apartment in Seattle infested by known members of Occupy who might be anarchist and after tossing in flash-bang grenades and zip-tying hands of the presumed evildoers, “took a black sweatshirt, a pink scarf, a pair of black goggles, ‘papers—notebook,’ a black bandana, a black stocking hat, and ‘paperwork—anarchists in the Occupy movement.’”
Why is it that police just totally get their panties in a twist when dealing with anarchists? I mean, it’s clear that police generally have no idea whatsoever what ‘anarchist’ means and seem terrified that an 18 year old is going throw a bomb at them or something. And the last time that happened was…?
Police say this was in reaction to a May Day riot. But such an investigation doesn’t justify heavy-handed tactics that would be better suited for taking down a drug cartel house.
