Detained Before the Convention

St. Paul is the place that will be considering the possiblity of real real riots in the streets, it's not the DNC convention, it's the RNC that's going to be a mess.

People organizing demonstrations related to the Republican National Convention said that members of the St. Paul police department and the Ramsey County sheriff's department had detained dozens of people on Friday night inside a building in St. Paul that was being used as a protest-planning headquarters.

People who had been inside the building said that officers entered shortly after 8:30 p.m., saying they had a warrant and instructing the occupants to lie on the ground.

“They handcuffed all of us,” said Sonia Silbert, 28, from Washington. “They searched everyone.”

At 11 p.m., police officers stood in front of the building. People who emerged one by one told similar stories about what had taken place inside. They said they had been searched and questioned and photographed before being released. Jordan Kushner, a member of the National Lawyers Guild, said the two-story brick building had been rented by a nonprofit organization and was being used by several groups planning protests.

The republican party is responsible for the busch, Cheney adminstration. They lied about the war, telling us its necessary to spy on us to protect us??? Protect us from WHO??? Protest you bet, until they either impeach them or try them for war crimes. Look at all the people they Killed and how they trashed the constitution. If were not allowed to protest, we all need to join the militia. djw
