The owner of Frager Farm Stand and Fruit Tree Nursery in Kent, Wash. was about to go to bed when he heard a suspicious noise at his business, which is right next to his home. The owner retrieved a shotgun, went to investigate, and discovered a pair of intruders inside the farm stand’s office. The owner shot and killed one of the criminals and held the other at gunpoint until police could arrive. The break-in was the second in as many days for the farm stand. An investigation revealed that the surviving burglar was facing a domestic violence charge and had a recent history of drug use.

Two men were arrested Sunday for attacking Christian street preachers at a gay pride festival in Seattle. A video shows the two Christian preachers actively avoiding a man who had approached them in a menacing manner. After members of the NOH8 crowd ripped the protesters’ signs down, at least one of the two Christian preachers was apparently punched repeatedly before police arrived and made two arrests. At least one of the two suspects has been in trouble with the law before:
Occupy Wall Street activist Taylor Hall attended the May Day protest in Seattle yesterday. This morning, Hall tweeted this video out to his Twitter followers along with this statement: “Wow they caught me punching a #cop at 3:35, nice!”
Hall, who identifies himself as a Marxist Leninist Socialist, subsequently deleted his tweet, but not before Twitchy was able to capture it for posterity.
Hall also posted the video to his Facebook page, along with this note: “Please watch and enjoy…”
