Protesters March to Downtown Seattle

A group of protesters began rallying around 5pm at Seattle Central Community College with speakers and relatives of those shot by police. From small children to senior citizens, this diverse group of about 150 marched through downtown Seattle this Friday evening, followed closely by Seattle P.D. officers.

Shameless-- I believe it was because they were protesting multiple deaths; however, John T. Williams was the focus.

Shouldn't the sign say "Stolen Life"? Just sayin'...

Once again, racism rears it's ugly head, and as usual-for no apparent reason. What a shame!

Where was Lesley and Donna before the shooting. I'll bet they didn't do one single thing to help John T. Williams. If you don't want to get shot, then don't hold a knife while walking toward a cop.
