Seattle Police Vehicles, Substation Vandalized During Protest

February 19, 2011  | 

Dozens of marchers took to the streets of Seattle Friday to protest a King County prosecutor's decision not to file charges against Officer Ian Birk, who fatally shot woodcarver John T. Williams.

The crowd chanted, "No justice, no peace! No racist police!" and marched for three hours. Protesters threw water bottles at a police barricade and vandalized police vehicles. Officers used pepper spray on the crowd, reports KOMO News.

In an incident that is still under investigation, an arson fire was set in the front of a Seattle Police community station Friday evening. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze that was caused by a flammable liquid accellerant, reports KOMO News.
