Denver police continue thuggery by arresting teen girls for (spins wheel)……chalking the sidewalk.

August 29, 2008

These girls had permission from both the Denver City Attorney David Fine and Denver Deputy Chief of Police John Lamb. to write chalk messages on public sidewalks during the Democratic National Convention. Apparently someone forgot to relay that message to officers in the field. Even though they didn’t, one wonders what the security threat is of a couple of tiny girls writing on the sidewalk in chalk. I’m sure the good people of Denver felt much safer after those girls were arrested. One thing the Denver PD can’t be accused of is political bias. The teens arrested here were protesting abortion policies, but earlier this week the police knocked the living hell out a protester from Code Pink, a group opposed to the Iraq War. Right-wing, left-wing……as long as they can be violently arrested and justify the Denver PD’s overtime, it doesn’t matter.

Also arrested was Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who was further threatened with felony prosecution for “leading” the event.

Constitutional law……now there’s a good course for police cadets to learn preferably before “Tazering 101” and “Deny, Deny, Deny-A Policeman’s Guide to Protecting His Fellow Officers’ Butts.”

Watch the menacing “Sidewalk Sisters” get taken down before detonating their chalk bombs.

Cops crack the living (explitive) out of a DNC protester

Crazy video footage of the police in Denver at the Democratic National Convention. Some cop in riot gear jacks this little lady right to ground with a baton. Later, that same woman seems to be describing what just happened, when she’s snatched away by what appears to be the same cop that hit her earlier. Free speech and right to assembly heard whimpering.
