The Seattle Police Department has confirmed that violent rioters used a substance suspected to be concrete to seal shut the door to the East Precinct while trying to set fire to the building. The ATF is now involved. The Police Officers Guild president said that this act shows that the leftists are intent on killing police officers and that the city is being held hostage by 100 to 150 people that are bent on destroying the city.

Rioters allegedly attempted to seal the door of a police precinct with boards, rebar and quick-dry cement that reportedly trapped officers inside on Monday night in Seattle, according to a police union official.

Officers reportedly had to kick their way out of the East Precinct, while protesters allegedly assembled and tried to set a fire outside the door, according to local outlet KIRO 7 reported.

“I think what this shows you is that these people are intent on killing police officers,” President of the Seattle Police Officers Guild Mike Solan said, KIRO 7 reported. He referred to the incident as “clear domestic terrorism.”

“We’re being held hostage by a group of 100 to 150 people that are bent on destroying this city and hurting police officers,” Solan said, KIRO 7 reported.

In a later incident Monday night, the police guild headquarters was reportedly targeted by three firebombs, according to Solan, KIRO 7 reported. “Our surveillance video captured two individuals scouting our location for several hours,” he said.

The video shows a stairway at the back of the guild on fire, though officers were allegedly able to put it out, KIRO 7 reported.

Solan criticized city officials for not condemning the incidents, KIRO 7 reported. “That’s why it’s incumbent upon our elected officials to put a stop to this immediately,” he said.
