SEATTLE — After violence on May Day the past two years, Seattle police say they’re ready for marches this May 1.
Police officials told city council members Wednesday they’ll allow peaceful marchers to exercise free-speech rights and they’ll be prepared to arrest anyone who commits crimes against people or property.
Last year police used flash bangs and pepper spray and arrested 18 people from a crowd that pelted them with rocks and bottles. Eight officers were injured.
On May Day 2012 masked marchers dressed in black broke windows and doors on downtown banks and stores and tried to set a fire at a federal building.
