Seattle police officers used excessive force in punching and pushing protesters, accountability office finds

The Seattle Office of Police Accountability has found that two officers, who arrested protesters separately in May and June, each used excessive force when doing so.

The findings, released on Friday, include those from a case in which an officer punched a man several times in the torso amid an arrest, and another in which an officer pushed a demonstrator to the ground twice, causing injuries to their head and face.
