Olympia City Councilman TJ Johnson said Wednesday he was shoved by state troopers trying to clear the area the night before. He said that people were dispersing, but that pepper spray was shot off, anyway.
He said county sheriff’s deputies “chose to escalate the situation.”
(note ~ TJ is a friend of ours who I have a lot of respect for.)
