Seattle police release bodycam footage of violent protests as city sees another lawless weekend of violence

Dozens of Seattle police officers were injured during another lawless weekend in the city as demonstrations devolved into destruction and attacks on law enforcement.

Police bodycam footage shared Sunday shows a supercut of protesters throwing rocks, bottles, wood and explosives at officers during Saturday’s protests in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

It was reported by Fox News that rioters also set fire to a portable trailer and threw an explosive device at the police department’s East District precinct, leaving an 8-inch hole in the side of the building, police said.

Police declared a riot and deployed sponge rounds, OC spray, and blast balls to disperse protesters. At least 47 people were arrested for assaults on officers, obstruction, and failure to disperse.
