Seattle Knife Fight

Insane encounter at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. This footage was captured by witness @mjsxmat a few days ago. He says the guy in the white hoody started stealing items from homeless people. When confronted, he whipped out what appears to be a knife and started charging at people. No one was stabbed. But this latest incident is exactly why so many people are avoiding downtown. Along with rampant open air drug use, these maniacs and unhinged individuals are walking around like they own the city. It remains lawless.
