As conservative as anyone? Boy I understand your point now, really definitive proof. The bystanders were also As Conservative as Anyone....whenever I walk to work I too like to get as close as possible to smelly, loud, anarchist, I just can never resist the temptation....

You obviously aren't aware of the facts here. I work in Washington and remember when this happened - Chief Ramsey messed this one up. The police surrounded a park without warning or an order to disburse or anything. People who had the misfortune of being on the sidewalk by the park - including bystanders who might be walking to their office after going to a CVS - were rounded up in the dragnet. They weren't in the throng with the anti-IMF people, carrying signs, etc. There was no probable cause to arrest them. It pisses me off that my tax dollars are going to pay for this, when it was so avoidable (i.e., order them to disburse and then arrest those who don't - these anti-IMF types love the perceived honor of getting arrested).
