Dozens of protesters in Tacoma gathered hours after the attempted murder of several spectators of street racing by a police officer in a cruiser, who had arrived to respond to a report of 1 person hit by a car doing donuts. Evidently, this was an inefficient practice as the police officer hit more than 8 people, and ran over one, causing nearly fatal injuries. 2 people were arrested by police at the demonstration for disorderly conduct.
Demonstrators in Seattle gathered in protest of the sweep of Cal Anderson Park by police, attempting to stop the department from destroying the property of the unhoused.
