A suspected white supremacist was arrested Sunday night in connection with a shooting at a Black Lives Matter protest outside the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct in Capitol Hill.
The suspect drove into a group of protesters at 11th and Pine and shot a Black man around 8:30 p.m. There are unconfirmed reports that the suspect is a member of the white supremacist group The Proud Boys.
In almost all of these protests, there are snipers on the top of buildings keeping an eye out for these type of attacks. The fact that this suspect was allowed to carry out such a brazen attack, unimpeded by law enforcement, further lends credence to the theory that law enforcement may have allowed this attack to happen.
Over the last two weeks of nationwide protests, there have been reports of law enforcement covertly working with violent white supremacist groups, who are allowed to carry out ambush attacks, particularly on innocent Black people.
Here is footage of the ambush attack in Seattle.
