Antifa Blocks Seattle Police From Responding To Emergencies With Snow Barrier

An Instagram video posted over the weekend shows a snow barrier set up by protesters outside of the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct.

In the clip, which was shared by user ‘standwithseattlepd’ a police car is seen going backwards after trying to drive over the barrier.

“Antifa goons blocked the exit of the East Precinct with a pile of snow tonight, in an effort to stop vehicles from responding to emergency calls,” the person wrote in the caption of another clip showing a crowd of policemen later standing around the barrier.

Journalist Andy Ngo – who has previously been viciously attacked by Antifa – also posted a video that shows the activists cheering on as the vehicle fails to pass the snow barrier.

Another 15-minute video shared by user “seattleblmfairy”, shows a group of activists confronting Seattle police.

One protester says “just having a friendly snowball fight here at the EastPrecinct” while another person is heard saying the “cops are being aggressive and violating people’s rights” as police begin moving the harassers away from the blocked path and start shoveling the snow away.

One policeman tells the activists that they “cannot block police from exiting a police vehicle precinct” before another starts pushing an activist back in order to clear the path. The officer is then being shouted at by other protesters saying “stop touching her” and “we’re literally not blocking your building.”

Following a short back and forth between officers and activists, the crowd starts chanting “peaceful protest.” A small scuffle between officers and protesters then breaks out.

A few minutes later, one officer asks an activist if they would like a sticker:

“You seem a little angry and sad, usually stickers make people feel better,” the cop says. The protester replies: “I’m not sad; am I angry? Yes.”

The snow barrier is eventually cleared, and officers go back inside the building as the activists keep on shouting and throwing snowballs at them.

In another video, protesters can be seen throwing snowballs at a moving police vehicle.
