Last night the WSP insisted that they can’t guarantee the protestor’s safety and that they shouldn’t have been standing on i5, blaming the victims. No mention of an uptick in vehicular assaults/attempts. Here is a thread of *some* from Seattle alone [CW!!]

#seattleprotests #seattle
It astounds me that all the blame is on where the protesters have been, what they've been doing, and all w/o any mention of this clear trend of violent assaults/harassment by drivers (both some while blocked by protests and some seeking the protestors out). #SeattleProtests
I demand an investigation into this pattern of violence and vehicular assaults on protestors & pedestrians. Here are 12 instances to start that investigation with.

Received another — these pics are from June 8th daytime on Capitol Hill, Silver lexus no plates, attempted to run over a protest group #seattleprotests
Adding mention of the other 3 times Officer Molly Clark was spotted by protestors over a period of two days, which would bring the running total of this thread to 19 car encounters...
UPDATE: Official Statement from BLM Women's March organizers on last night.

Please watch. At large people filming from bushes at time of the i5 attack (white car), also 3 other accounts of seeing Officer Molly Clark (blue car) before last night.
Update: via Black Femme March Organizers official statement about an hour ago — this encounter had been Officer Molly Clark’s 4th time being spotted by the group yelling racist remarks
