[See NewsBusters for more.] As demonstrations continue to occupy part of the Capitol Hill district of downtown Seattle, MSNBC's Vaughn Hillyard and Stephanie Ruhle defended the occupiers from accusations of anarchy and mayhem on Monday by citing their purported peaceful nature and their dedication to community.

Hillyard hyped the, "very peaceful week here on these streets" and credited that peace to the city's decision to abandon the East Precinct. Despite the fact the group calling itself the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest once called itself the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, Hillyard insisted, "this is not some hostile takeover."
