SEATTLE (AP) — Two volunteer medics injured in Seattle’s May Day protests are suing several high ranking Seattle police officers and a group of unnamed officers.

The Seattle Times reports Jill Frankie Jurkowski and Aaron Donny-Clark are seeking punitive damages as well as a permanent injunction prohibiting the group of officers from using excessive force against peaceful protesters.

The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle on Tuesday.

Jurkowski and Donny-Clark say they were identifiable as medics because they were wearing brightly colored medical cross patches and had tape in the shape of a cross on their backs.

    sue the activists and any left wing sawant loving group instead. These activist type bums are like leeches collecting welfare, social assistance, and then sue the government because that’s the only way in life they can “earn” a living.

    Typical Q13 with their misleading article titles. “Medics” as if they are actual first responders like King County Medic 1 or fire fighters, rather than protestors who pose as “medics” because they our water in peoples eyes. The officers should sue the protestor organizations
