Seattle officer punches girl in face during jaywalking stop

http://www.komonews.com

The video is behind the link. Basically two women were stopped jaywalking. Officials say one was "verbally antagonistic toward the officer," when one woman started walking away. The officer "escorted" her back, which means he grabbed her by the arm and dragged her back. Then she started yelling at him and pull away. The second girl intervened and he socked her.

Here's the funny part:

"Seattle police have not reviewed the video of the incident."

But the best part I think, is that the public surrounds the scene with camera phones.

Man buys part of driveway and blocks it with concrete blocks.

http://newsok.com

A businessman is under fire for buying tiny parcels of land so he can sell or lease them for inflated prices to people who thought they owned them.

In one case, Guthrie businessman Ron Edwards is demanding four Edmond condominium owners pay him $80,000 for a shared driveway he bought for $1,584 at a county auction.

"I thought I made a decent offer,” Edwards said.

The owners haven't paid, so Edwards blocked their driveway with concrete highway barriers last month.
