Seattle police say prepared for more protests

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 05:36

A demonstrator swears at police while holding a middle finger up during an anti-capitalist protest in SeattleBy Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - Seattle police said on Saturday they were preparing for more weekend protests after a May Day march that turned violent when crowds hurled bottles and wrenches at officers, who responded with pepper spray and flash grenades. Sixteen people were arrested in the violence, which erupted late Friday after a day of peaceful demonstrations to call attention to workers' rights, immigration issues and police treatment of minorities in the United States. "However if there is physical violence or property destruction we will take action to protect public safety." Protesters annually assemble on May 1 as a day to focus attention on labor and immigration issues, but demonstrators in cities across the country also used the occasion to rally against police violence. The violent protests in Seattle contrasted with peaceful and even celebratory demonstrations in Baltimore after prosecutors brought charges on Friday against all six officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died of spinal injuries suffered while in police custody last month.

Baltimore's curfew takes a toll on city businesses

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 05:24
By Scott Malone BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Five days after rioters torched buildings and looted stores in an outbreak of violence over the death of a black man who was fatally injured in police custody, Baltimore's bars and restaurants are hurting. With police and National Guard troops enforcing a 10 p.m. nightly curfew, businesses in all corners of the city are forced to close early and are seeing fewer customers during the shortened hours they are open, business owners said on Saturday. "It's just devastating, financially," said Ron Furman, owner of Max's Taphouse, in the city's Inner Harbor district, which is popular with tourists. It's a ghost town." Traffic was slowest on Tuesday and Wednesday when many downtown office workers chose to work from home or left work early out of fears of a repeat of Monday's rioting, business owners said.
