When last we visited the seditious hotbed of Olympia, Washington, anti-military zealots had caused $4,000 in damages to police cars and incurred more than $100,000 in costs after obstructing military shipments at the city port.

Well, anarchy reigns again, and you have to wonder how much longer law-abiding citizens there are going to tolerate the riot-friendly government and hapless police force (see the Olympian’s photo gallery here):

A hip-hop concert at The Evergreen State College ended in a riot early Friday in which a Thurston County sheriff’s patrol car was overturned and looted.

A campus police officer was dispatched around 1:30 a.m. following a report of a fight inside the College Recreation Center where the group Dead Prez was performing.

The female officer arrested a man inside the venue and placed him in the back of the patrol car. Some of the concertgoers were taunting and questioning the actions of the officer, said Trooper Brandy Kessler of the Washington State Patrol.

“They didn’t feel the arrest that was being made was fair,” she said.

The crowd continued to grow and became more aggressive.

“Some people blocked the police car that was trying to take the student away,” said Dan Hilden, a 20-year-old Evergreen student who attended the concert.

Concerned for her safety, the officer called for backup and the arrested man was eventually released. The officer took down his name and address so he will be summoned to court at a later time.

Thurston County Chief Criminal Deputy James Chamberlain said authorities made the right call in releasing the male because of the escalating unruly behavior of the crowd.

“It was a very volatile situation at one point, and I’m proud of the officers in how they responded,” Chamberlain said. “They backed out of there to try and de-escalate the situation instead of making more arrests and possibly making it worse.”

No. Appeasement is making it worse.
