It has been almost year now since Christopher Monfort was arrested and shot by three Seattle cops outside of his Tukwila apartment (which left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair). The police responded to a tip in relation to the scene in Seattle last Halloween when one Seattle police officer was shot. The cop killing has been linked to the Oct. 22 2009 arson of four police cars in Seattle. In both incidents American flags were left behind. While at the arson, leaflets related to the beating of a young black girl in King County (http://www.seattlepi.com/local/401779_schene28.html) were left behind as well, reading “These deaths are dedicated to (King County Sheriff’s) Deputy Travis Bruner, he stood by and did nothing, as Deputy Paul Schene Brutally beat and Unarmed 14 year old Girl in their care.”
Monfort has been imprisoned since last November. Little support has been given to him. Monfort is not an anarchist, his ideas differ greatly from most anarchist thought. Nonetheless, he is open to dialog and like most others, would appreciate communication. Take this as an opportunity to engage with someone who has taken their ideas to their conclusions and/or offer an analysis to debate.
Monfort’s next hearing is Dec 6 in Seattle. The prosecutor is perusing the death penalty.
