That rioter who bashed Seattle cop in back of head with bat? He allegedly bragged of being ‘proud’ of attack, wanted to ‘slit every SPD throat.’

News & Politics

Readers of TheBlaze likely haven’t forgotten about that Antifa-clad rioter caught on video bashing a Seattle police officer in the back of the head with a baseball bat last month.

Well, a suspect’s finally been arrested — and one might say the stuff authorities have on him is as scary and sick as the video of his attack.

What are the details?

Jacob Greenberg, 19, has been charged with first-degree assault, first-degree attempted arson, and first-degree reckless burning, KOMO-TV reported. Jason Rantz noted in his piece for KTTH-AM that Greenberg is in jail. KOMO added that Greenberg is expected to enter a plea when he’s arraigned Oct. 29.

Investigators said the charges filed against Greenberg include his alleged participation in setting fires in the city during the unrest as well as using a metal baseball bat to hit a Seattle officer in the head on Sept. 23. Authorities say the force from the blow caused the officer’s helmet to crack.

‘Basically a good kid’

Turns out he’s also the stepson of former Democratic state representative Laura Ruderman, according to Rantz, who added that she used her political clout to convince a judge to lower the bail on his arson-related charges and release him to her custody.

“He is basically a good kid, straight ‘A’ student,” Ruderman said. “I’ve served the state in the legislature; we will make sure he follows all the provision[s].”

Charging documents allege Greenberg and his accomplice Danielle McMillan “spent their time this fall plotting various assaults and fire bombings on police officers,” Rantz added.

More from his KTTH piece:

The conversations between the two showed “a high degree of sophistication and planning for their attacks, identifying targets (Seattle Police Officer’s Guild, East Precinct), itemizing the needs for set numbers of Molotov cocktails, calculating expected loss for failed bombs, and where to obtain supplies.”

Greenberg and McMillan allegedly discussed “Molotov cocktail tattoos to memorialize their attacks,” while “sharing news articles of their criminal activities with pride.” Specifically, they said they were “proud of Greenberg” for his assault against the police officer.

They even communicated ways to “destroy evidence of their attack plans.” They obviously failed at that.

During a late September search warrant execution at the home of Greenberg’s parents where he lives, police seized two bats, including one aluminum bat, Rantz wrote, adding that police believe it was the same bat used to assault the officer.

Detectives also uncovered numerous texts to and from Greenberg, including some related to the assault on the officer, Rantz said.

Greenberg allegedly shared a KOMO story that shows the assault against the officer and texted to his friend McMillan, “I AM SO PISSED AT THE COPS!!! I [EXPLETIVE] WENT OFF ON THEM TONIGHT!” and “I’m proud too hehe. Wish he didn’t have a helmet on lol,” Rantz wrote.

Other Greenberg texts included, “And can we like pls slit every SPD throat,” and “I want the whole damn system to just burn the [expletive] down!!! Btw I really like fire,” Rantz said.

Anything else?

The King County Prosecutor’s Office recommended Greenberg’s bail set at $750,000, and a judge agreed, Rantz said, adding that a judge also agreed to $100,000 bail for McMillan.

  1. These are the enemy within, Greenberg and his elected representative aunt. These are enemies of the American people. Remember Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, Stalin’s lackeys posing as Americans? One was hanged, the other fried in the chair. This is what needs to be done to all enemy, America hating, subverting scum.

    1. So which will we do with His Majesty, The Donald, hang him or fry him? Change Stalin for Putin and you’ve got triplets, not twins.

      1. You’re a moron. I don’t see Republicans rioting, looting and burning businesses? Nope, just you idiotic, Democrat children. Also, Joe and Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton (the butcher of Bengazi) are proving to be the ones in bed with Russia. Get your facts straight. Get your head out of the mainstream media’s behind and do your homework. Grow up.

      2. No one, and I mean NO ONE, has ever said that Donald J is without faults. Like most of us he has some. But, and this is critical, he loves America and the people of America, respects our military, law enforcement, fire fighters, first responders, etc.
        You falsely claim that he is a communist; that male bovine excrement comment has been disproved thanks to idiots such as pelosi and her evil cabal. (Now there is a traitor that should be removed from office and prosecuted (persecuted?) for her failure to do her job – help the people of the United States not rioters and murderers.)
        How about the idiot Demoncrat official who said that they were going to win even if they have to lie, cheat, and steal to do it. How charming. The majority of Americans do not want their evil leftist agenda being pushed on us. The demoncrats know this and realize the only way they can win any public office is to lie, cheat, and steal. Or burn, loot, kill, repeat.

        Keep America Great. Back the Blue. Re-elect Trump.

        1. I agree with everything you have said. The germ warfare is being caused by the Democratic Party and is being used just to discredit President Trump. VOTE TRUMP in 2020

        2. God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Who’s to say that Donald Trump wasn’t raised and groomed for a time such as this? No, he’s not perfect by any means, but who among us is? We voted for him in 2016 and will again! MAGA/KAG

        3. Let’s concentrate, for just a moment, on nutty nan, from the sewer city of San Fran – – she IS a communist, a decades long member of CPUSA (communist party USA). Formerly, she was a chairperson, for that anti-American party, but had to resign the chair prior to taking up the Speaker’s gavel the first time, in 2006, in order to avoid the appearance of “conflict”. Irregardless, she IS very “conflicted” and is one of the “enemies within”. Even tho’ she resigned that chair position, she is still a member of the party – – “once a commie, always a commie”.

          Prior to her tenure, as Speaker in ’06, CPUSA’s member roster was publicly available online; the moment she took the gavel, that roster disappeared; you can no longer access the site unless you are a member – – -hmmm, why do you suppose that happened? There are also 80+ other members of CPUSA and the “New Party” (also communist), currently sitting in OUR Halls of Congress. Time to “clean out” this hornets’ nest and start bringing charges for their anti-American activities. I will never understand “why” no one ever addresses this issue; the only one to ever speak of it, publicly (to my knowledge) is Lt. Col. (Ret) Allen West, of Florida. The moment he did, he was driven out of Congress, just as Sen. Joe McCarthy was, all those years ago. I understand, even less, why the Communist Control Act of 1952 has never been enforced – -often wonder if any of our representatives even know it exists.

      3. A typical Democrat moron, to be a Democrat your IQ. has to be rather low to call a capitalist like Trump a communist is idiotic a real communist is a person like Bernie Sanders but even he isn’t a real one he is a multimillionaire now living the good life on all the money he has made while in the Senate is your head up your rear end because your ears are cold or are you looking for more leftist propaganda

      4. You can be first in line as that would be a good place for DUMB ASS A CRAPS like you and the rest of them.
        Poop, poop, and more poop but don’t flush cause that’s your brains.

  2. The moment this kid and his female friend started making plans to attack the police is when they stopped being nice kids. I’ll bet if the situation was reversed and they were being attacked by other kids, his mom would have asked for the bail to be in the millions. This kid deserves to be taken to the barn and be ass whipped so as him not being able to sit for quite a long time.

  3. How about the favor be returned? Two COP’s hold their arms out right. Then hit him in the back of the head hard with a bat. Let him know it’s coming too. And I mean hit him real hard. I’ll do it.

  4. At that point a K9 should have been deployed and the handler should have taken a smoke break while the dog gets the job done…..30 minutes later the question arises ” Oh do you need an ambulance?” “Dial 911 I am sure they will dispatch one for you..”

  5. Dems are mostly scum! No other way to describe them at this point.

    Police need to shoot back and shoot much more often…. anyone attacking a police should be executed on the spot with overwhelming firepower… this is all the anarchist groups understand and if this does not happen they will continue to take advantage.

    Dems are our enemy!!!! No different than Iran, Russia or China.

  6. So a ‘basically good’ kid attempts to MURDER a copper and brags about it – while out on some form of bail for multiple felonies ‘cuz his stepmom claims she can keep him out of even more trouble. Anyone else see that some liberal judge fell for her ‘promises’ since she is also a lib? Or am I just being cynical……………..

  7. for you dumbasses that keep claiming russia russia russia on trump, that b.s. has been disproven many times over. get your head out of your ass and admit it. its the democrats, hillary comey brennan biden obama and that bunch that were bedding down with putin. quit believing that lying schiff, pelosi, and the msm for your info. jut wait til trumps second term, even if you dont believe it now, you wont have a choice then because there will quite a few dems indicted and convicted for treason.

  8. Most of the comments above are absolutely true only how many blacks and liberal women will see them that way? Punk kids who know nothing of the real world need very badly to be punished for their actions. I hope that Greenberg kid becomes somebodies “buddy” while in jail. Couldn’t happen to a nicer child!

  9. How in the world can a former Democratic State Representative, his grandmother or not, interfere with legal
    events in a case such as this. If she knew that her grandson was blotting against the police, it was her duty to notify the police, FBI, State Police, in other words, someone. If she knew, she’s just as guilty and should stand with this punk as a co-defendant. Maybe they can get joining cells in prison, if and only if, the prosecutor isn’t a Democrat and honest to his oaths and obligations to which the people elected him/her.

    Now, how is the police officer doing? I hope his doctors are providing the best services as possible. Another police officer in my prayers to regain his health and live a long and happier life.

  10. If ever there was a gang of animals that need to be exterminated it’s the animals associated with the Democrat party they need to be segregated from the rest of us there are several islands near Alaska that would work

  11. The court has no ball’s to serve justice in this act of total injustice only a 308 or 45mm will solve this situation and Greenberg you better watch your back because justice is on the way // kiss your A** goodbuy along with your friends !!

  12. All I want to know is, if Biden and Harris are elected what are all you UAW people going to do with your guns?? The two of them are absolutely going to get your guns, all of them. One way or another. All I can say is, I will laugh my rear off when all you gun owners are crying and moaning and spiting and stuttering about you didn’t think this would happen. The reason I laugh is because I don’t own any guns of any kind. So I am not worried about anybody knocking on my door looking for my guns. HAHA. SUCKERS.
