Admitting Karen Wright has been violating the speaker rules at the City Council meetings, methods of persuasion should have been used before taking the drastic measure of handcuffing and citing her. She wouldn't have been confronting the police is she were told, "we are going to arrest you, if you don't behave." We could disagree with many things she say and do at the chamber, but we have to recognize that she is a dedicated activist deeply involved in city matters.
Public speakers at the City Council meetings are volunteers who don't earn any money, but dedicate their time and efforts to express their opinions in our free country. Rules have to be respected, but also restrain and smart tactics have to be used by the authorities. This one shows Ms Wright on the floor while being handcuffed. The Truth Publication Online states its strongest protest for this action against a woman who is disable and wasn't threatening anybody. The silent and complicity of the members of the dais before this human aberration is very worrisome.
