""One woman was sprayed with chemicals and dragged from the gates. She was taken away on a stretcher by emergency officials. Before that, the woman was seen pouring water from a bottle into her eyes and weeping. Another woman said she was stunned by officers, and still had what appeared to be a Taser wire hanging from her shirt. 'I was just standing, trying to get into my City Council meeting,' said the woman, Kim Ellis, who was taken away in an ambulance. 'Is this what democracy looks like?' said Bill Quigley, a Loyola University law professor who opposes demolition, as he held a strand of Taser wire he said had been shot into another of the protesters. Quigley said he would explore legal action over the incident, which he believed violated public meetings laws." This is what citizens can expect from the ?public servants? they fund with their taxes these days. This violence began as they simply tried to attend a ?public meeting?, in a taxpayer funded public building, to express their opinion on plans to demolish public housing. We should be ashamed to be such a nation of sheep that our paid employees, like these city council members and police, have gotten quite comfortable with the concept that they can abuse those whose hard earned money pays their salaries. But...a very good illustration of why people should not put themselves at the mercy of the State by living in these ?projects.?"
