Dawit Kelete, 27, Arrested For Death of Transgender Woman on I-5 Freeway in Seattle
Mainstream Media Narrative flips, as a Somali immigrant turns out to be the man who ran down attendees at a Black Lives Matter protest on I-5.
July 6, 2020
For the 19th straight night in a row, protestors had blocked the Interstate 5 freeway that runs through Seattle, in order to conduct their protest.
A white Jaguar evaded several police vehicles serving to block the highway for the protestors, hitting two transgender women who were attending a Black Lives Matter rally. All the major news networks replayed the video footage on TV.
Summer Taylor, 24 of Seattle was killed Saturday night, when the white Jaguar driven by Kelete veered around several cars blocking the highway, sending the two women flying. Diaz Love, 32, of Bellingham is reportedly in critical condition after the accident on Interstate Five in downtown Seattle Saturday night.
The Washington State Patrol is holding Kelete on possible terrorism or manslaughter charges. His bail has not been set, and charges have not yet been filed. His arraignment is set for tomorrow afternoon.
By some accounts on social media, Kelete is himself a Somali immigrant. Others describe him as African American. One thing is for sure: This does not fit the mainstream media narrative.
"Jaguar that drove into Seattle protest is registered to Dawit Kelete, Plate No BPA6961. On 4/4/2020 homeboy blew red light & has at least 8 parking tickets all from 2020. From the photos he's NOT your average right-wing extremist. Rolling on the floor laughing. DONT WALK ON HIGHWAYS you Marxist BLM Terrorists," tweeted Michael Vilchey.
Witness accounts do differ. Some say Kelete was trying to avoid the protestors. ""Deliberately targeted." Excuse me? It was a black man that hit her, and as far as I can tell he swerved to try and avoid people on a freeway, in the middle of the night. Our politicians are shameless."
Correction, 7/6/20: Several readers have pointed out to me that the 2 victims described in this story were/are non-binary, rather than transgender. I'm not sure how that affects this story, but if you would like to know more about the distinction between non-binary and transgender, please see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-binary_gender
Also, by some accounts Kelete is Eritrean or Sudanese, rather than Somali.
