As rioting escalated around the country last night, one of the cities that was hardest hit was Seattle. The city announced a 5 p.m. curfew that was widely ignored as bands of thousands of rioters roamed the downtown area smashing windows, looting stores, and torching cars.
Many of the cars destroyed were police vehicles. KOMO TV captured one rioter retrieving an AR-15 rifle from a smashed police SUV.
An armed security guard who was working for another TV station, Q13Fox, then pointed a handgun at the rioter’s face and disarmed him, all of it playing out on camera.

Watch how quickly this cop reacts.

The good guy with a gun then unloaded the rifle, retrieved a second firearm from the vehicle and turned them over to police. The guard was met with little resistance from the man he disarmed as one of his fellow rioters pulled him away.
