A man was stopped by 2 police when I approached them by Pioneer Square I filmed this to monitor and document how the police were going to treat him. Soon there was a Chiers Van (detox workers) and a Fire truck all assisting.
While it seemed to be somewhat overkill in manpower at least nobody was being arrested, cuffed, beat or abused.
I was told his mental health and safety was their concern, (I like that)
When I asked an officer what happened he seemed like he was not going to answer my question ...untill he seen my big "Indymedia press pass" hanging from neck, he then offered up his information and walked off. Everyone was aware they were being filmed. I am not sure if that had anything to do with how they treated this man.
