Tuesday/ May day! we have a rampage

Since it was May 1 and International Workers Day (which is not officially observed in the USA) there were peaceful protesters marching in Seattle yesterday.  They protested against broken immigration policies and income inequality.  There was also a mob of anarchists (that actually sounds too philosophical, l think vandals and criminals describe them better), out to do property destruction and lash out at people on the street and reporters.  Some were arrested but I have seen no reports of serious injuries.

Store fronts and windows were damaged at the following properties. My firm's office is in the building right across from Nike Town, so a good thing I worked from home on Tuesday!
