"About 40 police officers were needed to arrest a single woman who sat down and opened an umbrella in a Seattle park this morning, according to local media. Amid the ongoing 'Occupy Seattle' protest, city officials decided to ban sitting down with umbrellas in public spaces, ostensibly because they become 'makeshift structures,' which are forbidden. In a scene from earlier today, a single woman, who identified herself as Debra Lynn Peardon, put that law to the test, opening an umbrella and sitting down on the ground." (10/17/11)
