Three police officers were injured and 18 people were arrested as a result of a riot in Seattle involving explosives, bottles and rocks, authorities said.

A protest against the Seattle Police Officers Guild erupted into violence just after 10 p.m. Sunday night, police said in a news release. Someone set off a large explosive and attempted to break the window of a police vehicle, the statement said.

Police ordered the crowd to disperse and then people began throwing rocks and bottles at officers, the release stated. Fireworks were also thrown at officers, KIRO-TV reported. Of the three officers injured, police said one was hospitalized. The department released photos of some of the injuries including one officer with a black eye and another with a burn mark on their neck.

Blast balls and "OC spray" -- also known as pepper spray -- were used to disperse the crowd, police said. The 18 individuals arrested were booked in the King County Jail.

And, last night the Democrats' BLM/Antifa street thugs in Portland assaulted a man, beating him unconscious:

This just days after city's Chief of Police resigned over huge budget cut:

But I am sure it was all very peaceful!

Finally calling them RIOTS... only took 2 months! lol

RIOT! Exactly. Not 'peaceful protest'

But peaceful right!! How many people have been killed since May? Dozens that’s how many!! How many businesses have been burned to the ground? Not sure but I heard the damage is in the hundreds of millions.

Lawlessness [marx] VS Democracy [Law & Order]? cdnpoli canada covid19

At least they called it a riot and not a peaceful protest finally.

How many protesters beaten? How many unprovoked acts of violence committed by the police? Were there random kidnappings like in Portland? Did officers drive their cars through crowds like in NYC? The tapes don’t lie... cops instigate clashes.

DefendThePolice

Refund the police. Rehire Chief Carmen Best Seattle

If you invite anarchy to set up shop in your city don't be surprised when things go out of control. Seattle officials should be fired for their lack of governance.

whats seattle still rioting about? lol you all need to chill
