Seattle: Majority of the Rioters at BLM Protests Were from Out of Town, and Almost 50% Were White Men

An analysis of nearly 100 arrest records found only 32% of those arrested listed Seattle as their hometown, while the majority were from communities outside the city. Nearly 50% of people arrested during Seattle’s violent demonstrations were white, 18% were black and 28% did not have the race listed on the reports.  Arrest reports indicate the common thread among most suspects is their hostility toward government, the police, and corporate America.

City prosecutors have declined to charge 143 suspects and about 110 others are awaiting charging decisions. Of eight cases where charges have been filed, the city attorney’s office dismissed the complaints in six. One of the most disturbing videos of the riots was of a man smashing a metal baseball bat into the head of Seattle police officer who was wearing a bike helmet. Jacob Greenburg, 19, the stepson of former Kirkland State Representative Laura Ruderman, is accused of the attack.

When violence erupted in downtown Seattle in late May, Ed Little was disturbed by the images of looting and violence he saw on television.

“I thought it was crazy. That shouldn’t be happening at all,” said Little, who believed that peaceful protests against police brutality were hijacked by criminals.

Weeks later, there was a knock at the door of Little’s Everett apartment when police came to arrest his 25-year-old son and search the family’s apartment.

“It’s hard to believe. We don’t know Jake like that. It’s not the kind of boy he is,” Little said.

In September, federal prosecutors accused Jacob Little of stealing an M4 rifle from the back of a charred Seattle police vehicle on May 30 during riots that broke out that weekend over the death of George Floyd.

In documents charging Little with possession of a stolen firearm, investigators say a tipster led them to Little, an employee at a janitorial service in Mukilteo who worked a second, part-time job at an appliance store to help support his parents.

Little has no prior criminal record and has pleaded “not guilty” to the federal charges.

“He’s not a troublemaker. Not normally. He doesn’t go out looking for trouble,” said a baffled Ed Little.

A KING 5 Investigators analysis of nearly 100 arrest records related to the Seattle protests shows that Jacob Little fits the typical profile of the people accused of veering into criminal activity.

The suspects are mostly white men who came into Seattle from communities outside the city to commit their crimes.

And they were ALL on Uncle George’s payroll, indirectly. He needs to be dealt with as a domestic terrorist on Nov. 4th. James Comey needed to be fired as soon as Trump was sworn in Jan. ’17.

The ‘Whites’ are progressive Jews.

‘White’ does not necessarily signify ethnic-European ancestry.
