'beat the crowds'

Damn! I'm starting to sound like the democratic underground, but this shows bad taste, and a mindset that is worrisome.
The front of the black shirt shows the number "68" with a slash through it. One of the primary protest groups at last month's DNC in Denver called themselves "Recreate 68," harkening back to the violent, 1968 political convention in Chicago.

The back of the shirt features a menacing-looking police figure, wearing what looks like a Denver police badge and helmet and clutching a baton. He's looming over the city of Denver along with the slogan, "WE GET UP EARLY, to BEAT the crowds." Also written across the back of the shirt is "2008 DNC.'
Nothing like 'beat[ing] the crowds' to install respect and fear in the masses.

Free speech AINT today

This might seem small but the secret service has had a history of doing this. They simply demand that protesters be removed, then charge them with trespassing. God knows that a well run political machine does not allow for freedom of speech.

Here is a little info from the ACLU over this tactic from several years ago when it involved 'free speech' zones. They also dislike t-shirts and such.

It all comes down to one frightening issue. If she has the sign it is trespassing, if she gives it up she is okay. Speech denotes the crime. We are fucked people. Fucked.

Also note that Baton beats face...literally.

They stepped in later to keep her from talking to the press. A whole pile of dung piled on your rights in those short 36 seconds of video. I like the police...I don't like the militant police.

To damn lazy

I'm a solid firearms enthusiast. I can't afford to be a proper gun nut, but I can hope. The news is filled with a solid effort to ...
