Any Washington stare residents?

There is a video that shows up on these video compilation programs (“World’s Most Shocking Videos,” for example) that shows a disagreement between a town councilman (a man) and the mayor (a woman).

The man is finally dragged from the meeting after being pepper-sprayed.

Is anyone familiar with this? What were the two of them arguing about? I think it had to do with revenue, but I never saw the point of contention–only that the mayor wanted to move on, and the councilman didn’t.

I once stared at the Washington momument. Does this count?

Yer pal,

Yep - I saw the video and lived in Seattle for a while.

Haven’t a clue what they were arguing about though.

Didn’t the presenter mention after that the chap who was pepper sprayed sued for police brutality or something like that?

Read before “Submit.”
Read before “Submit.”
Read before “Submit.”
Ooops… “Washington State”

Yeah, he got a 65K settlement out of the deal.

Saw the bit on the news, a while back. Forgot what it was all about. As for it being among the “World’s most shocking videos”, I believe it would be a bit of an exaggeration in the present case…

Those Washington stares, on the other hand…: that’s a different matter altogether. Brrr! Chilling!!
