The beginning of this footage is a bit shaky. Because I was scared and it was hard to get focuses.
The police were coming down 3rd in a line shooting loud things and there was lots of smoke and tear gas. I guess they were attempting to clear downtown. This is one of those moments where you can see the protests turn to be just rage about the behavior of the police (see the standoff tomorrow night on Capitol Hill)
The doors to Benaroya Hall had been locked so no one could seek respite there, even though there were plenty of people inside. It was a little scary when a few people pounded on the doors. At some point, the tear gas and the fear was too much for me. Good thing there was a big fountain there so we could wash our faces and eyes. I am leaving a lot of shaking footage in so that you can hear the audio. Next block down, business as usual - sort of.
