From Q13Fox: A group of about 30 people made their way through downtown Olympia on Sunday night, painting messages on buildings advocating killing police, Olympia PD said.

Police said the group traveled down Fourth Avenue painting messages along the lines of “kill cops.” No arrests were made and nobody was hurt.

Police are going through video surveillance from various businesses in hopes of identifying suspects. Most of the people involved were wearing masks, however.

KOMO 4 News has more details:

The small group created huge problems during the march. One person launched fireworks while others tagged up walls along Fourth Avenue. The most disturbing messages included calls to kill police officers.

“Doing it in downtown just isn’t very effective because it affects small businesses that want to help,” said Raven Fire, who works at Dumpster Values clothing store.

Employees are frustrated by the graffiti on their building is frustrating since they want more police accountability too.

“I don’t think that being destructive is necessarily the way to deal with it, but I get why they are doing it,” Fire said.

“I think it’s people that just want to be angry,” Fire said. “They’re not thinking it through clearly.”
