Video from a security camera made public on Facebook shows officers in riot gear converging suddenly on the bar at approximately p. Employees had been inside after the establishment closed at 8 p. They were drawn outside to tend to injuries sustained by demonstrators who, just moments prior, had been assaulted with chemical crowd-control weapons at the Capitol building in an unprovoked attack. Isaac, the assistant show director at The Blazing Saddle whose full name the Informer is withholding for privacy concerns , posted a harrowing account of the police raid on Facebook. He was outside helping distribute water bottles and providing first aid to protesters when police arrived on the scene and demanded they stop. According to Isaac, police did not announce a reason for why they entered. He fled to the basement to hide when they came in.
