Liberal hypocrisy at this finest, but don't worry. As soon as the dust settle, they will be back at pointing figures and engaging in the same behavior they generalize as a white privilege issue.
This is reprehensible and an example of liberal politics rum a muck. Complete waste of tax payers money, which could be used for homeless shelters and other basic needs of Seattle residents in need of food, shelter, and medical attention. There is considerable community outrage at this ridiculous decision and statement by the City of Seattle. There is no justification for paying her legal expenses. This sets a bad precedence and I hope hundreds of other employees seek to be indeminfied for speach or other conduct which clearly has nothhing to do with their job descrition or duties. http://q13fox.com/2017/10/27/city-of-seattle-could-pay-more-than-300000-to-defend-councilmember-kshama-sawant/
I have never seen this occur before. My guess is this officer had a stress induced seizure/stroke. This is an entirely new type of incident. It starts almost immediately has the officer begins speaking with the suspect. You can hear it in his voice and it slowly beings, then a full blown attack.
