Private security guards hired to keep people out of a city-owned park in Seattle during off hours, left during their first shift after they were verbally harassed.
Cal Anderson Park has been closed since June 30 and was cleared Tuesday so the city could make repairs to a field house damaged in the protests. During a search of several tents, officers and park staff found a machete, a hatchet, makeshift shields and homemade spike strips.
