BLM and antifa protesters tried to intrude to Seattle Sheriff's property but backlashed by armed locals
About 200 people with Black Lives Matter signs wanted to "peacefully protest" in the neighborhood of Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, but on a private road, a group of armed men blocked the passage with their own cars.
The protesters decided to retreat, shouting that they were unarmed and just “looking for friends”. Anti-BLM gunmen do not want protests in their area, so they drove off the activists at gunpoint.

The verbal confrontation took place on Saturday night. The police chief Best himself regarded this attempt as a tactic of intimidation and pressure.
“When the people showed up to my house, it certainly felt very personal about me,” said Chief Best, according to Q13 FOX News. “It really does seem like a mob mentality, and bullying, to intimidate a public official.”
Shortly after the attempted protest, Chief Carmen Best ordered additional police patrols to be provided for the homes of other city officials.
This is something: Seattle’s police chief posts letter to City Council, calling on them to denounce protesters who showed up at her home in Snohomish Co. “My neighbors were concerned by such a large group, but they were successful in ensuring the crowd was not able to trespass..” https://t.co/4SxFWTxH1a pic.twitter.com/bFynHRnUED— Lewis Kamb (@lewiskamb) August 3, 2020
