WATCH: Black Seattle cops being targeted by hostile protesters—’How dare you do this job!’

In a studio interview broadcast on “The Divide” show with host Brandi Kruse of Q13 Fox, African American Seattle police officers describe their experiences of being confronted by protesters’ threats because of not only their chosen profession but also because of their skin pigment.

Joined by Seattle Police Officers’ Guild President Mike Solan, both black Seattle cops candidly expose the vileness and deeply embedded hatred emanating from anarchistic individuals.

The anarchists’ sole purpose is to disrupt society and peaceful means by foisting their ideologies upon others, including cops serving and protecting all in their communities.

Seems some protesters are extraordinarily myopic and want only their wish list fulfilled (complied with).

“You can’t challenge my blackness in this uniform,” one of the two black Seattle police professionals explained was her personal retort to protesters taunting her choice to don a police uniform without reservation or skin color in mind.

Both of these black heroes in blue talk deeply personal with professional composure, with many virtuous lessons for people of all walks of life.

Sunday on "The Divide": Black SPD officers on state of policing

"You can't challenge my blackness in this uniform": Two black Seattle PD officers tell me they were targeted for abuse during nightly clashes with protesters outside the city's East Precinct. They joined the president of the Seattle Police Officers' Guild to speak with me about what they endured, as well as their commitment to help improve policing in America.

She cited having varying pleasant conversations with some protesters while also echoing how many others approached her and erupted into “a scream-fest.”

This is a mere microcosm of what America’s law enforcement officers are facing on the frontlines, wherever so-called “peaceful protests” are transpiring, many erupting in violence and riotous behaviors.

These two Seattle cops are reflective of why folks join police forces, serving the public despite the contrarian views being dictated by less-than-peaceful people stirring revolutionary ideas and employing violent means.

Yet, these police officers return to the front lines, as sworn.
