Activists Protest Bombing of Gaza and innocent passerby harassed by pro Israel opposition and arrested

Demonstrators protest the violence in Gaza during a pro Palestine rally in Seattle. As protestors lined the sidewalks in Westlake Park, a pro Israel supporter walks by, harassing the demonstrators, yelling in peoples faces, screaming obscenities, and racial slurs. After crossing the street and harassing another group of demonstrators, the man tore off his shirt and began walking towards the group with fists clenched. As someone who wasn’t a part of the demonstration walked by, the pro Israel supporter turned and said something as he passed. The man then turned around as if he was going to swing, but thought better of it. The pro Israel supporter squared off with him, but a Westlake security guard who was watching the interaction pulled out his pepper spray, and sprayed the innocent passerby, grabbed him by the arm and tried to wrestle him to the ground. He was eventually led off into Westlake Center as SPD arrived on the scene. The below Youtube video link is post pepper spray but pre arrest.

  1. I like how the white guy just walks off nonchalantly, and th security guard just assumes it’s the right thing to do to mace the black guy, I guess less chance that he could hire a lawyer/ win a case.

  2. Did you happen to get the name of the mall cop who peppersprayed Raymond Wilford? I am currently trying to build a case against him to get him fired

  3. UNREAL!!! mall cop watched the whole thing! he sees the white guy aggressing on protesters, ripping his shirt off and just ignored this obvious instigator and targeted the black man! tweeting this!

  11. If the photos are all chronologically correct then the mall cop was there before the black guy even got involved. Not to mention how only one of the two involved parties was apprehended without question. Poor guy got maced and wasted his time being questioned by an asshole cop.

  14. Brave people! Keep being peaceful, documenting the truth and requiring justice! I hope this innocent man is released quickly and compensated. Luckily there were plenty of honest witnesses. Stand strong. Love and strength to you.
