FBI tailed Portland anarchists headed to Seattleon October 19, 2012 @ 6:45 am (Updated: 9:10 am - 10/19/12 )
In just unsealed court documents, the agent assigned to the FBI's terrorism task force in Seattle says evidence links five of the six to vandalism at Seattle's Nakamura Courthouse. The agent says the out-of-state anarchists were among 50 people who smashed windows and battled police.
SeattlePI.com reports the FBI claims to have seized clothing and text messages linking the anarchists to the riots. None of the six has been charged in connection with the violence and vandalism in Seattle last May first.
The FBI agent describes the vandalism as coordinated and says that in one text message, an anarchist described the day as "awesome."
