Criminal activists attacked the Seattle Police Officers Guild office with Molotov cocktails, video surveillance reveals. The attack happened on the same night as criminals attempted to seal officers in the East Precinct with wet cement, while trying to burn down the building.

SPOG President Officer Mike Solan is condemning this as an act of “domestic terrorism” by “criminal actions determined to kill police officers.”

Molotov cocktail attack on Seattle officers

The attack occurred Monday evening after 11 p.m., a purported response to the unrest due to an officer-involved shooting in Wisconsin.

As seen in the video surveillance provided by SPOG, two suspects appear to do a quick preliminary scan of the perimeter at 10:59 p.m. on foot. They’re completely dressed in dark clothing. They’re seen conferring with each other briefly, before walking from the building, away from the security camera.

Seconds later, the two are seen launching Molotov cocktails at the stairway entrance to the SPOG office. After one throws his explosive, the other launches a second. Both explode in a fireball against the side of the building before landing on the stairwell.

The fire rages for two minutes before Seattle police arrive and put out the flames. Luckily, no one was inside the building during this attack.

The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH is told there are suspects and that the investigation is ongoing.

‘Domestic terrorism’

Solan is pulling no punches in decrying this as an act of domestic terrorism in a month that has seen escalating violence against police.

“What’s shown in the SPOG videos are two criminal actors determined to kill police officers by using Molotov cocktails to destroy private property that could possibly have people inside working. These people have no fear. They do not adhere to law and order. They could care less about the human beings that could possibly be hurt or killed by their criminal, domestic terrorism actions,” Solan tells the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “I’ve called on our elected officials to profoundly condemn these domestic terrorist’s actions, whom are hurting our community.”

City council leaders have not responded to any of the violent acts against police this week. The council is on break, but the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH has reached out to each councilmember, via the city’s communications department, seeking comment on the recent attack. Online, Antifa surrogates and activist enablers have downplayed the violence, claiming it’s not a big deal or claiming it didn’t even happen.
