    It was an odd juxtaposition to observe from the intersection of Main and Liberty a half block away: A very long funeral procession headed north on Main Street, as police officers loaded boxes into their vehicles, which they’d removed from the building (presumably filled with material that will eventually be used as evidence).

    Absolutely outrageous use of police resources. Almost 63% of the people of Michigan voted for this proposal. 71.4% of Washtenaw County voted for it, and I imagine the percentage was considerably higher in Ann Arbor. Who sets the PD’s priorities?

    I saw a video of the raid. Police are wearing black clothes and masks over their heads. They look like a third world terror squad. Is that para military look really necessary?
