Reported anarchist tosses white powder, shouts ‘consumerism’ at Seattle shoppers

SEATTLE — Seattle Police are searching for a reported anarchist who tossed a bag of white powder near a busy shopping area downtown, causing the evacuation of a retail store.

Witnesses said the man drove by the North Face store at 1st Avenue and Spring Street and yelled out “consumerism” as he tossed a bag of white powder on to the sidewalk.

Seattle Fire Department’s Haz Mat team responded and shut down 1st Avenue between Madison and Spring Streets around 1 p.m. Shoppers and employees inside the North Face store were evacuated.

Investigators said that it was raining too hard and they were unable to get a good sample of the white powder to determine the contents of the powder.

No one was injured.

    There’s nothing to indicate that this person was an anarchist. Please report accurate information.

    What proof do you have that this person was an anarchist? This is blatant anti-anarchist propaganda.

    Shameful reporting! What shoddy editorial standards you demonstrate with a headline like this! It's absolutely appalling.

    Wow, you suck Q13… You're suppose to provide justifications for such extreme claims. Instead, this article is void of any such thing. Pathetic attempt at journalism.

    Other outlets mention nothing of the suspect being an anarchist. This is some really piss poor journalism.

      Or maybe we just don’t have accounts on here. I’m writing this from my phone, and I I don’t see an option to have it show my name. Oh, and you’re anonymous, too. Can I call you a coward?

    I don't give a shit what the news calls him
    the only people that would have a problem with the news calling him an anarchist, are anarchist
    you know what anarchist?
    they are those lazy slacker assholes that cant find a job cause they don't want to work
    then they get mad cause they cant afford shit, they've got nothing
    so they leave there parents house or the apt they share with 4 or 5 other people
    because losers cant afford there own place, and life is shitting on them
    then they go out and vandalize and steal from innocent people
    who have nothing to do with the excuse they call a cause
    do their parents know what find of piece of shit they are?
    yes, the apple does not fall far from the tree.

      Interesting… I’m an anarchist, I have a job, my own place, and I never steel or break things. Same can be said for most of my friends.
