William Wingate leads hundreds on golf club march through Capitol Hill in Seattle

They keep messing up and drawing in more and more of the population. It is not just youth that are impacted by the improper and unjust police actions, and what was once called a youth movement is exploding into a unilateral offense against the oppressive nature of the Law Enforcement Institution.

Great photos of the march today by Alex Garland.

Hundreds marched in the streets of Capitol Hill in Seattle in support of William Wingate, the 70 year old Air Force Veteran who walks with a golf club as a cane. Mr. Wingate, who is black, was arrested by SPD officer Whitlatch, who is not, for allegedly swinging his golf club at her vehicle as she drove past. Dash cam evidence proved otherwise and officer Whitlatch has been put on paid, administrative leave, as Mr. Wingate sues the Seattle Police Department for arresting him without cause.
