Seattle Riot: 46 devastating photos of Downtown destruction, vandalism
Antifa and anarchists co-opted an otherwise peaceful Justice for George Floyd demonstration in Seattle on Saturday, turning it into a riot. Criminals destroyed businesses, looted stores empty, burned cars, and spray painted their hateful, divisive message wherever they could.

The next day, scores of employees and volunteers came together to help clean up the mess Antifa and the anarchists made during their Seattle riot. Earlier that day, President Donald Trump said the United States would label Antifa a terrorist group for their ideologically-driven violence.
Downtown Seattle will now have a heavier police presence for day two of demonstrations, this time flanked by the Washington National Guard. The city remains under a 5 p.m. curfew. Will the peaceful demonstrations once again turn violent via Antifa agitators?
