There was no spray paint anywhere. We were having a peaceful vigil, but it turned ugly. As have many demonstrations over the last several weeks, declaring it a riot doesn't change the rules here. Now the American Civil Liberties Union and others have filed a contempt of court lawsuit against the city, its second one this time involving police actions at the vigil and three other demonstrations, including the one where an officer rolled his bike over a man's head. We're really asking just Jones to clarify what is allowed and what isn't allowed under that order because that order is still in effect. But we still see protestors protestors being hurt every single day. Federal Judge Richard Jones ruled in June that the city could use pepper spray blast balls under limited circumstances when it wass necessary, reasonable proportional and targeted to a specific, imminent threat. We think that's a really high standard that applies to very rare circumstances. But SPD is invoking it constantly. Wait a minute. Are you asking yourself to in the City Council pass a ban on tear gas, blast balls, rubber bullets and limited use of pepper spray. Did passing the band after Judge Jones made his ruling, But federal court Judge James Robart, who oversees nearly all things, SPD, under an eight year old consent decree last week issued a preliminary injunction.

In other words, police are free to use those measures while robots restraining order is in effect. Back. In June, the City Council passed a ban on these measures in response to public outcry to have the right to protest and not feel threatened by those charged with your safety. Any chemical weapon makes me feel a lot safer. But the Seattle Times reports the U. S. Department of Justice asked the federal court to prevent Seattle police from implementing the ban. The DOJ argued the band could conflict with the 2012 federal consent decree governing Seattle police bias and excessive use of force. The extended restraining order is in place until June

"But you've had a bird's eye view on the inner life of judges, you've taught them and described the role of judges closer to a clergy men. Then anything else the need to set aside your ego to be governed by the truth. What I want to just ask you candidate is, do you believe that the pressures of social media are as judge Breyer said, polarizing judges leading them to seek the approval of the crowd sometimes making the popular decision rather than the wrong one and give us a specific example, or two of cases where you think that actually is happening. So. Let me answer your question this way. I don't think it's quite as linear is that I don't think I, I certainly don't know of any judges who wake up and read Twitter in them. They just figure out that's how they're going to decide their cases that day. I don't think I don't think it works like that. But, but I, but I do think that what's happened is that it's harder and harder to insulate yourself from what's going on in the in the community and you don't even have to be a Twitter follower. I mean I am I don't I don't tweet but I but I follow and and you know you see the stuff people are saying and you see the, the ways people are perceiving things. And I think somewhere it embeds itself in your in your consciousness. And then you see things happen to people and I, I need to mention a couple. So, you know, the, the travel ban cases, which there were several, but the first one was decided by judge Robart in Seattle and just because it seems relevant to say this, judge Robart was appointed by George W Bush, he's a Republican so he wasn't somebody's always one of those, those liberal activist judges and he's not. But he decided this case, and he, he decided it against the administration and he got in a relatively short period of time over a million. Hits on Twitter and other social media basically suggesting that he was a traitor. There were people threatening his life. Some of the death threats were credible enough that the marshalls head to provide security for him. And I've talked to him. He's a friend and he said it was incredibly traumatic for him to, to have gone through that experience and all he did was actually his, his hearing was videotaped. They the, the nicer you can have cameras on the courtroom. So he his hearing is actually there's a video available of it. And you can watch it and at least from my perspective, you know. And I know that I'm looking at it as a former judge he was he was a model of decorum. He listened to everybody. He was very careful. He was very thoughtful, everybody had a chance to make their arguments. And so I'm watching this thing this is great. I mean, people should see this because this is what judges actually do. And that didn't stop people from. Just pillorying him on social media, and it had affect on him. And he's a federal judge with life tenure..
