(KING 5 News)   Half of the protesters arrested in Seattle are white and two thirds are from other cities, study finds, with some coming from as far as Alaska, Texas, or even, god forbid, Woodinville   (king5.com) divider line

So it's the same young, well-off white kids who are all over the internet talking about how awesome property destruction is?  Destroying other people's property?  Truly this is stunning.

And they'll suffer a brief punishment and then go back to being rich kids while people who aren't rich struggle to rebuild their neighborhoods?  Again, stunning.

"Teenager Desmond David-Pitts, accused of setting fire to the east police precinct, flew in from Alaska days after he protested Anchorage police who shot and killed his brother.

Margaret A. Channon, accused of torching police cars, was reported as a missing person out of Texas and popped up in the middle of the Seattle protests."


So the Alaskan kid had a serious beef with cops.   Also, Seattle is the "big city" for Alaska.

As for the Texan, sounds like she left Texas and wound up in Seattle, then in the protests.

And the suburbs, well duh...

A lot of white kids were asked and didn't mind being in the front lines against the SPD since the police keep killing black people and there's no consequences for it.

Also, as a local, I'd just like to say GFY, K5.  Two bird salute to you farkers.

Meaningless information.

The ratio of those arrested is meaningless without knowing the demographic makeup of all in attendance.

I've never understood this "from different cities automatically means you're there to start trouble" bullshiat. Maybe there wasn't a protest in their city, but they wanted their voice to be heard. Maybe they wanted to protest with a friend who lived there. Maybe they just hadn't had their favorite fried chicken in awhile, so they fueled up at Heaven Sent before hitting the streets. Don't let that talking point fool you.

Yeah, exactly why are people opposed to people protesting the police, exactly?  The police are shiatty in every city.  It's not like this is a problem in only a handful of places--it's a national problem.  Anyone in the US protesting cops anywhere is justified.

Well if you are going to burn down shiat it kinda makes sense to not shiat where you eat.  Always more fun to fark up someone elses house at a party than to have to be the host that cleans it up.

Absolutely.  I didn't bother adjusting the numbers, but yeah, there are often very few cops who live in the areas they police.  Especially when it comes to cities--they live in the suburbs, especially in white enclaves.
 
2020-10-30 5:11:20 PM  
You'd think after like, 150 days of protests, people would actually take a moment to listen to the protesters.

Nope, it's still "ooga booga property damage."

And you wonder why the protests continue.

White people make up 76.1% of the US population at last count, so they're apparently significantly less likely to be involved in these protest than other groups.

I know you're a nazi-sympathizing troll, but could you be a nazi-sympathizing troll who can do the most elementary types of basic arithmetic, please?

// And that's assuming these numbers are correct, which... I mean, they're reported by the police, so we can be like 150% sure that the one about "outside agitators" is a lie, that's a canned response that every police department in the US has used to refer to every protest in the history of the nation and it's been true exactly zero of those times, so the trend is fairly clear on that one.

You've got to build a stronger correlation between damaging that property and protecting lives.  I'm open to the notion that you're right, but not aware of any evidence.

Young people that can afford to live inside Seattle city limits? Sorry, no, all cheapo student apartments on Belmont have long since gone the way of the dodo bird. Something tells me trust fund kids don't really bother protesting in the streets much.

As a kid who grew up and went to high school in Woodinville (and still drive through it once in a while), I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Woodinville just made the news again here - but that douchebag's from Monroe, so that's pretty par for the course.
 
2020-10-30 5:22:03 PM  
Oh, and I forgot to mention the other reason this is meaningless: if you've seen even ONE video of people getting arrested at protests, you know the cops are not, like "investigating" something and finding the person who lit the fire. They're just beating the shiat out of whoever's in front of them, and arresting the first one that falls down.

Sooo... the Black population is only around 12% of the entire population of the USA. Black people get a bunch of white people on their side, but that's not allowed now... for reasons? And even then, in a majority white area, only half of the people arrested are white? That means the police are disproportionately arresting minorities, which PROVES THE POINT. GFY casual racists.

Where is the correlation between property damage and human lives?

Also you ignore the fallout property damage has on actual people's lives and their ability to work, pay their bills, and put food on the table.

This is the GOP we're talking about, who came very close to sending Roy Moore to the Senate.

Same exact thing has happened with various protests in the past here in Oakland and Berkeley.  People protest, people get angry for sure, stop things up, normal protest stuff, but it's assholes who come in as it gets dark and use whatever happens to be going on as an excuse to fark shiat up.

No subby, half the people arrested weren't there to protest, they were there to do crimes.  Then they were arrested for doing crimes, not protesting. They used the protest as cover, and Republican politicians and those that worship them used the crime doers as examples of protestors.  So once again, these Republicans are disingenuous twunts.
