Seattle Tunnel - " in the Hole by $2 Billion - " Could Be Scrapped

Garfield teacher hit by pepper spray files claim against city
Seattle Times - A Garfield High School teacher filed a $500,000 claim against the city of Seattle on Wednesday, alleging that a police officer lacking cause doused him with pepper spray shortly after he participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally and march Jan. 19. Jesse Hagopian, a history teacher who gave a speech during the event, says in the claim that as he began to head home in the afternoon to celebrate his 2-year-old son's birthday, he was walking on the sidewalk in the South Lake Union area talking to his mother on the phone when the officer sprayed him. "He instantly felt a burning sensation in his eyes and had some difficulty breathing," says the claim, which serves as a prelude to a lawsuit unless the matter is settled. Read more...
