Yet more questions and reactions:
"Council member Laurin Easthom says she does not understand why police responded with semi-automatic rifles to a group of squatters.. 'They must have assumed that people in there were heavily armed,' Easthom said Wednesday. 'If they use heavy artillery for protests, then I think we need to talk about a policy change. ... That's huge. That's bad in my opinion.
"The reality is, we didn't know what we were walking into," [Chief] Blue said. "It is true that once we got in (Sunday) we didn't find any weapons, but we didn't know that ahead of time. And there certainly was a concern (of) a great potential for an active resistance if we did not move decisively and quickly."
"I'm just so grateful that there were only scary images and nothing more than that," Mayor Pro Tem Jim Ward said.
Reactions, defenses, opinions abound. An Independent Commission can provide answers based upon an independent review.
