Video footage show a Black Lives Matter protester in Seattle attempt to stop a contingent of bicycle cops from advancing down the street by laying on the ground, and getting run over and swiftly arrestedted for his ineffective attempt to hinder police movement.
“You have the police line, which are getting ready to push,” someone calls out in the background as the police begin their advance up the street.
A protester can be seen lying spread-eagled and prone in the center of the thoroughfare in a vain attempt to halt the charge, before a bicycle cop deliberately rides over his head with both wheels, knocking the protester’s hat off.
The officers then swiftly dismount and appear to take the protester into custody.

In a related incident in Sacramento, California, a protester jumped onto the hood of a moving police cruiser and was unceremoniously dumped to the pavement:
Protesters scream “You can’t stop the revolution” at police officers as they attempt drive their police cars away from the protesters. Eventually, one officer resorts to using his lights and sirens to attempt to get one man to move and allow him to drive away. The officer eventually starts slowly creeping his patrol car forward, likely not using the accelerator.
In response, the protester in the red cap uses his hands to hoist himself on top of the car’s hood, then uses a maneuver similar to the 1980s dance move and WWE fighting move, The Worm, to move further onto the vehicle’s roof.
At this point, the officer begins accelerating rapidly. As a result, the protester is quickly hurled to one side of the vehicle, just as his dancing maneuver saw him make it to the vehicle’s roof.
Seconds later, the protester is tossed off the vehicle, hitting his head roughly on the pavement as more protesters come to gauge the severity of his injuries.
Blocking traffic has become a staple of Black Lives Matter protests, resulting in jury to both citizens and protesters on more than one occasion.
