Recognize these guys?

Seattle police have released a collection of photos of suspected May Day rioters in hopes the public can help identify them.

In the wake of the May Day melee that ended with 17 people arrested and eight police officers injured downtown, Seattle police have been reviewing video, photographs and other evidence to investigate “all criminal activity” that occurred during the event.

The damage and arrests came at the end of a day of largely peaceful demonstrations promoting worker rights and pushing for changes in federal immigration laws.

Hours after that march ended, an “anti-capitalism” demonstration turned violent as demonstrators hurled rocks, bottles and other objects at police and storefronts.

If you recognize any of the suspects, contact the May Day 2013 Investigation Team at MayDay2013@Seattle.gov, or call 206-233-2666.
