Cops arrest criminals – NYC Republican Convention style – Take Two

The Washington Post has an article today on the arrests of demonstrators in NYC during the Republican Convention. The article describes how a large majority of the people arrested by the NYPD were in fact completely innocent of any crime. It is not a crime to demonstrate, unless you live in North Korea or, apparently, New York City.

The keeper quote from the article is this wonderful quote from our Repulican Mayor Bloomberg:

Bloomberg has acknowledged that police may have arrested some innocent bystanders, but he suggested that it was partly their fault.”If you go to where people are protesting and don’t want to be part of the protest, you’re always going to run the risk that maybe you’ll get tied up with it,” he said on a weekly radio show on WABC.

What the f***?


Fear – Republicans’ greatest election tool

Apparently the House Speaker, Dennis Hastert (R-IL), has an inside track to the mind of Osama Bin Laden. The Honorable Representative thinks Osama Bin Laden would have an easier time operating, if John Kerry won the elections. Wow.

When did the Republicans become the sole experts on the war on terrorism?
