About 150 protesters gathered in Tacoma following an incident the previous day in which a police cruiser ran over a crowd spectating a street racing event. Demonstrators placed burning barricades on the street, marching to a local prison to make noise for the inmates, as well as smashing windows of state institutions along the way. Police failed to kettle the demonstration, which resulted in very few arrests.
