A Seattle-area high school teacher who was pepper-sprayed by police at a rally on Martin Luther King Jr. day has filed an intent to sue the city and its police force for $500,000.
Hagopian's lawyer, however, doesn't have much faith in the city's ability to hold itself accountable.
"They're not going to respond," Bible said on Friday afternoon. "I would not be surprised if the city of Seattle finds yet another way to absolve itself of any wrong-doing. They've made a mockery of accountability and until that changes, we're not holding our breath."
I can't wait to find out how much paid leave and workers' comp money this fine officer ends up being punished with.
