Seattle police officer removes fellow officer's knee from man's neck

Seattle protests turn violent, National Guard activated

Reporter Matt McKnight on Saturday published a video, which shows a Seattle officer kneeling on a protester's neck in what appears to be a similar fashion as Chauvin.

One alleged looter, however, has taken the internet by storm for a different reason, after being caught on camera by a local news station in Seattle, carrying a whole cheesecake through the chaos.

"The Seattle Police Department was prepared to facilitate the peaceful exercise of First Amendment rights", Best said in her statement. "Video clips from the weekend showed that in some instances, police used force to clear streets, regardless of who was there or what they were doing". In one video, which racked up almost 8 million views as of Monday, one officer is seen handcuffing a man faced down on the ground while another pins the man to the ground with his knee on the man's neck.

The Seattle Police Department did not return repeated inquires for comments on the video. "If you watch the other video - full-length video - you can see the officer diverted from another arrest to get him".


Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced an emergency curfew from 5pm to 5am on Saturday and Sunday, in an attempt to bring the violence and damage across the city to an end.

An independent autopsy revealed that Floyd's death was caused by asphyxiation from sustained pressure, USA Today reported on Monday. Floyd's death, which resulted in Mr. Chauvin losing his job and facing charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter, has sparked violent protests across the country.

Terrence Floyd, George Floyd's younger brother, condemned the violent protests and asked that protests find another way to channel their anger.

"I'm here to get justice not only for George Floyd, but all people who were unarmed and killed by police", Cole said. I want to go insane. "You'll hear a lot of people saying, 'He was a gentle giant'".
