Seattle, WA, October 18, 2020 / 16:00 / John McGraw Statue Defaced in Downtown Seattle

SIGACTS/SITREP:  BLM/ANTIFA activists threw red paint on a statue of John McGraw, who was a Governor of Washington and sheriff in the late 1800s. Various BLM/Antifa accounts expressed frustration that the statue was not pulled down completely.

RECOMMENDATION: This statue is likely to be targeted again in the next few weeks. Protest groups have gone down in size but people traveling into or through the Downtown Seattle area should continue to use caution.
