US Park Service Police Ignore Constitution to Violently Supress Peaceful Demonstrators
So far, most corporate media [except for French-owned AFP] seem to be ignoring what happened in Lafayette Park yesterday. Long story short, a hopefully massive antiwar demonstration in DC is scheduled to coincide with the release of the Bush-Cheney "report" on Iraq by General Petreus on September 15 [in yet another craven attempt by the Bush-Cheney junta to confabulate their disaster in Iraq with the Saudi islamoextremist-sponsored terrorist attacks against the US on September 11, 2001]. One of the groups sponsoring the peaceful demonstration, ANSWER, was threatened with a $10,000 fine for using the wrong kind of tape on posters advertising the demonstration unless they removed all the posters. Yesterday, less than a dozen members of ANSWER held a press conference in Lafayette park to demonstrate a new adhesive that would appear to conform to DC's legal guidelines, at which point they were charged by mounted US Park Service Police "officers." Secret sources within the Bush-Cheney junta claim that Bush has already signed a supersecret signing statement exempting all executive branch employees from following the rule of law so the victims no longer have any legal recourse.
