    Could we turn down the Hysteria? Yes, he had some body armor in the truck, which is a little scary. Yes, he had a stolen rifle and shotgun, so I'm glad the police arrested him. A rifle and a shotgun are not massive cache of weapons. One thing the SPD has released since is that he had no ammunition for either weapon. Please tone the alarmist language down a notch, so we don't sound silly. As for Molotov cocktails, as far as Seattle PD are concerned, if you have a spare can of gas, empty bottles, and a rag anywhere around, you have Molotov cocktails. They've pulled that shit with the anarchist community often enough.  

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.

      And from the looks of it, this guy was loaded for a major assault.  This could have gotten really ugly.

        The Seattle police have claimed to have found Molotov cocktails before, when all they had were a spare can of gas, and some empty beer bottles in the back of a truck.

        While I'm glad they got this guy off the street, lets not make mountains out of molehills. Now, if it turns out there's more to the story, that's one thing, but we should not exaggerate the facts.

      or passive-aggressive to other kossacks. Is there a right way to handle this?
