Skip to comments.DC Recruiting Center Under Attack: Rocks and Paint Bombs: Cops Under Orders to do Nothing
Posted on 03/19/2008 1:48:04 PM PDT by tgslTakoma
Just got a call from Kristinn on-scene.
This is the SECOND round of attacks that the station and Freepers have withstood today.
Cops are clearing the street of cars so the violent radicals can march down the street to the recruiting center unencumbered.
Crowds have been throwing rocks, paint bombs in GLASS bottles, water bottles, and anything esle they can throw.
MPDC Chief Cathy Lanier was there before the attacks, ORDERING HER OFFICERS to DO NOTHING if the station was attacked.
No arrests are being made.
More info as I get it.
Kristinn is asking any Freepers and Friends in the area to come down and stand with the Freepers there now.
Be aware that this is not a place for children.
Again this AM, Code Pink group at corner of 14th & L Street.
This morning I was happy to see all the police on either side of the recruiter station. Lot of f-ing help they were when the s##t hit the fan. The police vehicles are the ones Kristinn said were moved to allow the anarchists a clear line of fire.
This must be hard on the military in the buildings and the police officers of military backgrounds.
Imagine thousands of us going weapons free on these scum. That Day is coming.
WTF? If no one is to be arrested then the FReepers and other protectors should start busting some heads.
Chief Ramsey = Chief Wiggums
Too bad for Philly...
Mayor’s Office: (202) 727-2980
It will when the rest of us get involved.
As my cousin always says at the end of our phone conversations, "Keep your powder dry."
I wish I could be there.
Praying you all remain safe!
Jimmy Valentine's brother has arrived and taken Rongkirby's place for the night shift.
Just a nobody, prezusa222, Kristinn and the young lurker are still there.
Waiting for further updates...
I’m heading down to Huntington, NY 11743. Apparently the moonbats will be in MY hood and that’s just not right. I think the site said they had 47 registered moonbats showing up.
1 against 47.....BRING IT ON!
Thanks for your posts.
I checked out the activities in Somerville, New Jersey. There were 22 people signed up for a candlelight vigil and probably that many standing in the rain with their signs and their candles.
At the other end of town, there were three soldiers at the Army recruiting station. They were aware there were protests for the fifth anniversary but didn’t know about the local protest. I thanked them for their service; one of them thanked me for stopping by.
I asked whether they were volunteers, one said we all are. He said he could see a point for the protesters if there were a draft, but not if they were volunteers.
The soldier said the surge is working.
Thanks for the link. The moonbats will be IN MY TOWN. I’m heading there now. Huntington, NY 11743.
47 to 1.
The police union ought to file charges against their chief, worthless as she is.
