    I can picture every one of those cops T-bagging the people on the ground

    Marcika

    Aah, the land of the free!

    titanzero

    they are probems’ all terrorists!

    tiki god

    help help, I’m being repressed.

    They were probably being assholes anyways.

    Marrock

    If it was a the republican national convention I’m surprised there aren’t more of them…

    pauld

    It’s only fascism when somebody else does it…

    Marrock

    Nah, if they were fascists they’d have cooler uniforms.

    Those protesters deserved it anyways.

    stfu, moron:
    “Of those arrested, 130 were booked on felony charges, including one assault on a peace officer. The 51 people arrested for gross misdemeanors and 103 for misdemeanors had already been released or were expected to be released soon after they were booked. ”

    also

    “Many of those involved identified themselves to reporters as anarchists. These protesters, some clad in black, wreaked havoc by damaging property and starting at least one fire.”

    Learn to internet, asshat

    All the fascists and assholes are inside the Republican National Convention.

    I would like to know where the so called “Anarchists” originated from; the 10,000 people slow march is very Minnesotan, the ultra violence is not, or at least I’d like to believe so.

    The fact that most were released is a sign that it is suppression. If they were actually doing something illegal and there was evidence against them, the charges would be pressed.

    Did they hit them with a shrink ray? Those people on the ground seem kind of small.

    Or……..they dropped the charges seeing as though prosecuting 150 people wouldn’t be worth it?

    Staplegun


    No, they were all children.

    I like how they are all carrying a big stick. Though I seriously doubt any of them walk softly…

    outofocus

    It’s people like that who give anarchy a bad rap

    greenie

    I love seeing hippies put in their place.

    Queensly

    I like the fact that they all have the standard issue protester prodding pole.
    “Hey guess what? Were not on facebook now so it’s actually gonna hurt when I poke ya!”
