Spokane has heart! Protest at the city council meeting tonight!
I did not find out about this problem via the traditional means. I had not learned of the details I should say, however the problem with Spokane police is obvious. From the “Golden Goose Fund” whistle blower that came out a few years ago forcing the Spokane police to admit wrong doings, and admitting to having no account where hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of sales from seized assets disappeared and has gone unaccounted for.
When this was all coming out, it was at the same time that Change In Spokane got shut down for providing legal medicine to legal medical patients. You can see my video and my letter to Spokane Police Department in 2009 here:
Tonight was another awesome display of how Spokane citizens can peacefully assemble and get their point across. In Tim’s and Gina’s protest tonight many activists did not sit down, and they turned their backs to the city council for not allowing a discussion to take place after the ombudsman’s hearing. After every other item on the agenda, they made time for questions at the end but at the end of the ombudsman’s hearing (despite that “Got Questions” was the last slide during this presentation), the president “Joe Shogan” showed contempt and anger to the idea of questions that anyone had for this hearing. Instead he gave 3 minutes for questions at 9pm like they always do. They gave 3 minutes for this issue, but more than an hour (with questions) for the contractor ordinance that they are trying to pass.

After you watch this meeting, please write Joe and let him know his conduct tonight was inappropriate!
After he asked them to leave, about 6 minutes later the police showed up.
Tim and Gina testified that they have never had a problem with police before testifying for their friend in front of a committee, but shortly after they continue to be harassed by Spokane Police. They used their 3 minutes so well, and it brought me to be very angry. Anyone who loves freedom would be angry about what the Spokane police are doing!
