Look back at the arrests during the RNC. This will literally be the same thing.
And that's fine if they are there to make trouble and/or breaking the law. But sometimes law enforcement types get carried away. If no laws are being broke and no one's safety is in danger - especially the president's - let them protest to their heart's content. Causing confrontations is only going to cause bad press and play right into the hands of the protestors who want to cause trouble. I'm sure the Bush administration would love nothing more to see reporters on TV with sad faces saying that while there were protesters, there were no confrontations by law enforcement. No "jack booted thugs" for the more liberal rags to write about. If you are in the Bush administration or you are a supporter of it, wouldn't you love to see Inauguration Day coverage all about the President and not about any protesters?Originally Posted by Reds4Life
I expect you are correct, but the flip side is that there are probably quite a few protesters who very much want to provoke a confrontation so there can be those stories about "jack booted thugs" beating them up.Originally Posted by Chip R
