Girl vs. Police Baton
Posted by Arroyoribera on August 12, 2007
It is curious to talk to people about their recollection of events.
I had the opportunity to talk to the young woman in the photo below. The context is the July 4, 2007 picnic and protest in Riverfront Park. She said that she had not noticed at the time that the Spokane Police officer standing in front of her had his baton in a battle ready position, ready to attack her with it if he deemed it necessary.

Neither did a friend of mine remember that a Spokane Police officer had a hand around his throat shoving him back several feet until I showed him the KREM 2 photo and video (click on link below the photo) of the event.
