CNN just claimed that protesters pushed the police too far, and violence broke out. What most likely happened was that the police wanted to clear the protesters out of the way and gassed them.

The CNN question to the reporter was "Is any work getting done" in Seattle, and is any productive work being accomplished by the WTO? I would say the protest itself is the best work getting done in Seattle right now.
