Ferguson protesters in Seattle chained shut doors at the Pacific Place mall – on the anniversary of a fire where people perished because the doors were locked.

 

Yesterday, Nov. 28, some of the Seattle protesters broke off from the crowd and chained the mall doors shut the doors, leading to five arrests by police.

 

Seventy-two years earlier on Nov. 28, America suffered its second-worst building fire in history, in which nearly five hundred people died, at Boston’s Cocoanut Grove nightclub. Some patrons were, apparently, unable to escape the burning building because exit doors had been bolted shut.

The Seattle mall rowdies were, ostensibly, protesting a grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson, MO, police officer Darren Wilson.
