Maria Morales, a 30 year old Iraq war veteran, describes what happened to her at the 2012 May Day protests in Seattle.
“I have somebody’s knee right on my neck, I can’t breathe. I don’t
know what’s going on. I don’t know what I did wrong, I don’t know what
I’m being arrested for.”
Seattle police had their hands full when a peaceful protest
turned violent after dozens of protesters in black clothing and masks
began breaking windows, spray painting cars, and slashing tires. One officer was even reportedly hit in the face by a glass jar.
Seattle police officer Sonya Fry claimed that the arrest and later
assault charge was due to the fact that Morales had cursed at her and
punched her in the chest. “If it’s your testimony against the testimony of a police officer, you’re going to lose every time,” said Darryl Parker, Morales' lawyer.
Luckily for Moral
