Cindy Sheehan Arrested
CINDY TAKES A TRIP TO THE CLANKER
How can the authorities get away with arresting the Voice of the Democrats?
Can’t you see she’s suffering?
Cindy “Occupied New Orleans” Sheehan flashes a fun smile for the cameramen as she is arrested today outside of the White House.
Happy Cindy, Sad Cindy, Silly Cindy… is taken away by officers in a planned arrest today outside the White House.
Prediction- Cindy’s hooked… There were just too many Pro-Chavez, Anti-Jew, Pro-Castro, Anti-Bush, Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Capitalist, Pro-Anarchists out in force showing Cindy nothing but luv over the weekend. The Left might as well get used to her mug. The exposure, attention, and throngs of democrats who follow and rejoice at her every move (see Ace) guarantee that Cindy is not going away any time too soon. It will be quite a sight when they do try to get her to pipe down! Fat chance of that! The democrat media has created a monster and don’t even know it, yet. And, I for one, demand that she be given a prime time slot as a keynote speaker at the next Democrat National Convention!
Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.
Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was handcuffed, then led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, “The whole world is watching.”
Sgt. Scott Fear, spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said they would be charged with demonstrating without a permit, which is a misdemeanor.
Park Police Sgt. L.J. McNally said Sheehan and the others would be taken to a processing center where they would be fingerprinted and photographed, then given a ticket and released. The process would take several hours, he said.
California Conservative, LGF, Ace says she was absolutely glowing. The Anchoress says, “I can’t think of anything that seems to destroy people’s mental health faster than a few weeks or months of uncritical, gushing media hype.” Lorie Byrd at Polipundit notes Mother Sheehan’s arrest.
