District judge in Seattle City banned police from using tear gas and other chemical irritants against peaceful protesters. These remedies can only be used if alternative measures have failed to suppress the riots. This is reported by FoxNews.
Earlier Black Lives Matter activists occupied several neighborhoods in central Seattle, declaring the area a ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’. U.S. President Donald Trump said the city had been taken over by “internal terrorists” and Mayor Jenny Durkan could not effectively fight the protesters. In response, Durkan advised Trump to ‘return to the bunker’.
