Anybody listen to Talk of the Nation today? It's not online yet, but it was a discussion of police tactics. A cop who was chief of police in Seattle during the WTO protests called the pepper spraying at UC Davis the most egregious misconduct during a protest that he had seen in his 34 years as a cop. He seems like a cool dude, for a pig, I mean. He said he thought teargassing the WTO protesters was a horrible mistake. It was refreshing to hear a public figure admit a mistake wholeheartedly. That never seems to happen anymore. Katehi, I'm looking at you. Anyway it was a good discussion and maybe worth listening to online.
