Man pepper-sprayed to be released without charges! Judge found no probable cause.
There is a solidarity demonstration planned for Friday, June 29, starting at 8pm at Seattle Central Community College (Broadway and Pine in Capitol Hill). The colors of the day are pink and black. Remember Stonewall! See you there!
Update more info:
Initial police reports said officers were forced to use pepper spray because some in the crowd were threatening property destruction and refused orders to clear the streets. One demonstrator reportedly kicked a police commander in the knee.
