#seamayday: Seattle Police Department live-tweets left-wing protest run amok; broken windows, rocks, pipes hurled at cops; Update: 17 arrests [photos]

Twitchy told you earlier this evening about the squad of citizen superheroes patrolling the streets of Seattle as anarchists and hooligans ramped up their May Day shenanigans.

Things took a turn for the worse tonight, as expected. The Seattle Police Department documented the mischief and mayhem on Twitter. At first, things were light-hearted:

But the left-wing May Day mob went from Silly String … to broken windows:

To metal bars and hurled water bottles:

Next targets: The media.

Arrests:

Here come the metal pipes:

Police being targeted:

The police have now fired blast balls (flash bangs) and “OC” (pepper spray) to try and disperse the mob. Twitchy will continue to monitor and update.

Update: Photos from the chaos in downtown Seattle.

Truth:

Update:

Here’s the Seattle PD’s wrap-up.

This year there were 17 arrests.

Editor’s note: The title of this post has been updated to reflect the new arrest tally.

      Come on, don’t give up that easily! It was CLEARLY a false-flag operation by eeeeevil teabaggers, trying to frame the poor, sweet, innocent lefties who really just wanted to pass out flowers….or something…

    I think Biden said to use a shotgun.

      Yet they want to ban Saigas. Which you can fire two blasts off the patio, ala Biden, annd still have 3 rounds to go.

      Not liberal, anarchist. There is a VAST difference, and most of our lovely blue city was with the police in there actions last night.

        sure.

      • Ronald Green

        Yep, that sure was sooo obvious. If your ‘lovely blue city’ was sooo behind the cops why does this happen every year?

    Thousands of dykes, pansies, and techno geeks loaded up on Chairman Mao, Starbucks, and reefer. Yeah, you can expect something to come unglued.

    • Ronald Green

      Funny thing is Chairman Mao executed millions of their ilk after he seized power in China. What was it about a the fools following fools or was it useful fools… I forget.

    What kind of ammunition is that? Is that like a flash bang ammo? Looks interesting. I’m a novice with this stuff.

    I wish that some of these “Anarchists” would have just moved to Somalia so they could experience the closest thing to an anarchy.

    Here’s the thing: Let’s imagine that the government announced that the protesters had won and communism would now be put in place. Twenty-four hours later, they’d be in mass graves. Poor deluded little ones.

    • Abiss

      Second look at silver linings?

  • TomJB

    Anyone local to the area have access to a list of businesses affected? Whenever I hear stories about these losers damaging a Starbucks or McDonald’s, I make it a point to visit a local one to me and spend some money.

    I am reminded that I need to go to Walgreens, but what were the others?

  • QAX3kFmH

    Spoiled Brats

  • M60GPMG

    Those arrested need to be tried, and once convicted, lose any sort of taxpayer-provided subsidies like student loans, unemployment (because anarchist hipsters never work) and their cherished “medical marijuana” cards that we all know that they have. Better yet–assign them to a year’s worth of community service doing civilian labor jobs in Afghanistan, digging holes, doing laundry and serving food to our troops.

  • Lady 12

    Seattle is my favorite place in the world. This is heartbreaking. Those rioters should all go to Russia where they belong.

    hipster scum

  • Orlando Cee

    They do get carried away once they step out from mom’s basement, don’t they? I’m sure it’s just the sensory overload from the real world that causes their random acts of violence.

    If these people just got a job, they’d be able to burn off all this excess energy.

    Oh, that’s right. There are no jobs. Obama is still president.

  • bsteelesp

    Leftist scum coming to the top and foaming over the sides of the “Melting Pot”. Just need to scoop them off the top and discard them to some place they might like. Maybe, China or North Korea.

  • therantinggeek

    It never ceases to amaze me that Liberals like you are so utterly pathetic that you come on here just to spew your usual diatribe, instead of wanting to offer an intelligent conversation.

    Yes, cats are adorable.

  • Koker

    It will never not make me laugh that libtrolls are so utterly stupid that they spend all day looking for conservative websites to blurb out their stupidness.

    You cats aren’t!

  • Garth Haycock

    Yes. Conservatives are stupid enough to run around and cause damage to businesses because they’ve been told that it isn’t fair that some people who work hard have more than lazy asses who won’t work.

  • therantinggeek

    Liberals being easily duped, and always dupe the uninformed. Blind leading the blind.

    Let’s compare instances of right vs left protest violence happening, shall we?

    Zing! :)

  • Garth Haycock

    Are you saying that the right or left is more violent? If it’s the right, I’ll point to every OWS protest, every World Health Organization protest. That’s just a start. It rarely, if ever, ends peacefully at those events.

    What would be an example of violence at a protest by those on the right? (If I understand your comment correctly). If not, apologies.
