So now the Jefferson Memorial is a “protected area” per the Patriot Act?

May 29, 2011

The wonderfully courageous people of Code Pink were roughly abused and arrested during a peaceful demonstration Saturday at the Jefferson Memorial.

These police thugs who grew up in the Reagan and post-Reagan Era haven’t a clue as to what this country and freedom are are about.

    This went viral around the planet after it happened. It has been shown on the news in quite a few countries.

    In Arab states this video is quite popular. It has not done US concerns about freedom, democracy and right of demonstration any good in the middle east or anywhere else.

    Also at least one of those police officers should be charged with assault and would be in the UK or quite a few other countries in Europe, if caught on camera in such an act.
