Seattle police officer Terry Whalen, a member of the department's hostage negotiating team, wears a patch reading "Stop screaming, I'm scared too" while standing with other officers blocking an intersection Wednesday, July 1, 2020, in Seattle, where streets had been blocked off in an area demonstrators had occupied for weeks. Whalen says that the patch, a gift to him, helps calm interactions with people who may be upset. Seattle police showed up in force earlier in the day at the "occupied" protest zone, tore down demonstrators' tents and used bicycles to herd the protesters after the mayor ordered the area cleared following two fatal shootings in less than two weeks. The "Capitol Hill Occupied Protest" zone was set up near downtown following the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
