    I don’t know any of the people involved. The story sickens me, he sounds like a good kid.
    Yes, there is a fundraiser for his legal fees.
    Throw him $ if you can.
    Any one of us could be this kid.

    According to video I saw, he shouldn't even be charged. We are doomed.

    Seriously. I was just reasing about this. He is being charged with assault. I dont know why every single armed person doesnot show up to the Seattle PD and demand his release. This crap has gone on ling enough.

    The crazies even have an armed Bundy style take over of part of the city. Time to take our country back

    They arrest him. Charge him to keep the protestors happy. By the time it goes to court, the news will be covering the new “big thing” and the protests will be over. Charges will be dropped. Guys life will be in shambles. But the politicians will look good to the loud minority.

    Based on the original story presented here on GT, he went around a barrier (unclear if this was an official barrier or makeshift) and into a street with protestors. Before getting to a more densely packed area he stopped and a man, claiming he was trying to intercede before Fernandez ran over the protestors, lunged in through his window and hit him. I think the crux of the case will be whether or not the guy who lunged in the window was considered reasonable in his actions and if Fernandez will be considered the original aggressor.

    There is more video out there that shows he was being chased then made the turn onto that street to get away. The barriers were taken down by the protesters and there were other cars on the street.

    He may have trouble though because of his gun. He had two extended round magazines taped or rubberbanded together. Not sure how that works on a carry rig.

    I think he has a decent justification for his actions, and if that's how it went down I hope he gets a fair trial and acquittal.

    But I would like some elaboration on the "Who are we?" description of them supporting "helping to create the change people of color are fighting for." What, exactly, is it that they claim POC are fighting for?
