  7. Dear All,

  9. I would love to provide you with more information on the shooter. I can assure you, we don't know anywhere near as much as people think we do. The statement on my blog is all I can say at this time. I can also say that the way it was characterized in the Seattle Times in the early report overstates what we know, although it is true that no charges have been made, this was done in consultation with the prosecutors office, where the case will ultimately end up if charges are made. I can also point out that it's been reported, although I cannot vouch for the accuracy, that the man injured has not, and does not wish, to press charges. That does not mean charges can't be brought, but, if true, it complicates the matter. I recognize it is not satisfactory to many given the rumors flying around. But we have taken decisive action on this, but cannot share more. I will share more as possible. An active investigation is ongoing.

While we can argue about whether ALL the demonstrators were non-violen, I can assure you that the police and authorities very much care about shootings of any kind, whether the demonstrators were peaceful or not, whether the shooter was a White nationalist or Anti-fascist or anarchist, whether student, past student (as also reported in the Seattle Times) or

  17. Their are policies and regulations in place to protect people's privacy. This is an important protection, but there is little more frustrating than not being able to share what we know, but in all honesty, it's less than people think we know. I'm hoping it won't be too long before we can say more -- certainly in plenty of time before a violent revolution takes place -- at least on our account.
