@10: I realize it's a totally different incident. By "This incident" meant the one I was linking to, the one where a black woman got her face punched in for a similar action.

@14: My understanding is that there is not a law against the police taking such photos, just a policy. In which case it's not "unlawful."

If you want that level of effort -- querying servers and checking individual officers' cameras -- you're not going to get it for $4k a year, nevermind from an unpaid volunteer.

@4: Uh. Hello. That was Monday. Today is Wednesday. Yesterday they canceled upcoming appearances.

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) sung by Darlene Love is better.

@22: To some people theater doesn't matter, art doesn't matter, rock music doesn't matter, etc. Should we not talk about those things, either, and stick only to "serious" issues?

I think people have enough bandwidth (in both brainpower and data limits) to cover multiple topics, serious and otherwise.

@2: It says that's where the ceremony will be. Is the new home also is in the Northwest Rooms of Seattle Center? Is it replacing those rooms?

Did I miss it, or does this story somewhere give the location of the new home? I see only the locations for the ceremony and the current home.

(Yes, I assume I can find it on the KEXP site, but it seems like a key piece of information to have here.)

In general I agree this is bad policy. But in the specific case of the anarchists -- known to smash windows and damage property in the past -- explicitly targeting NikeTown in advance I don't have a problem with taking their pictures.
