Chuck, I said the same thing in the Portland Occupier article and the Citizen Complaint to the police as I did to Denis. Why would you possibly think that overt lying is more likely than misheard communication? If you want me to send you pictures of my cut forehead and broken glasses I can.
Thanks again Denis for your coverage of this. There were more 'simmering tensions' at an Occupy meeting addressing Monday night's non-Occupy march.
Chuck Garabedian: I never said I was walking outside of my house nor did I 'retract' any statements. There was clearly confusion in the poor reception cell phone interview between Denis and I. As soon as I read the article, I called Denis back and clarified that there were other people arrested in their own neighborhoods but that I was part of the march.
I was on the sidewalk when I was grabbed from the crowd. My face is still cut and bruised and my glasses are still broken.
Chuck, what do you mean 'owning up'? Also my name is not Emma.
@20 - Thank you xauen.
I want to clarify and hopefully Denis can amend the above. I was part of the march last night and on the sidewalk when I was arrested. I wasn't outside of my house: I heard other people who got arrested say that though.
Regardless, my face was slammed into pavement and my glasses were broken for marching against police brutality... makes the chant 'This is what a police state look like' seem more real in my mind.
