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.

It’s DC, Bro. The bitch set me up. BTW, guns are illegal, pass it on.
Can you imagine what this election year could bring to big cities, and the damage that could be inflicted with a “DO NOTHING” attitude?
Just checked (ewww, I hate to go to moveon.org!) and there were 34 registered to protest here in Jacksonville, FL Wooooo eeeee, I’m sure THAT will be impressive! LOL
By the way, I just called our local Marine office to tell them to tell them how much I appreciated them!
It’s quite clear the “peace” moonbats are trying to provoke a more violent incident at a recruiting station. Methinks local cops are terrified that they will be involved in some incident and then have to pay for the subsequent budget-crippling lawsuits from the moonbat legal team and the ACLU. Sadly, judicial abuse of power is the historical way moonbats have their revolutions.
Is this what the congress had in mind when they voted to block the bill that would cut federal funds to Berkeley?
I could have sworn it was on 14th...But you’re right 8th and I...Muh bad...
Must be my Navy upbringing...;-)
GUILTY!!! Oops, wrong thread.
There is something in law about males age 17-45...
Stuff like this is only going to make SCOTUS MORE LIKELY to rule in favor of RKBA!
Can’t we all just get along?
It worked for rioting coal miners when they were striking. It will work just fine on hippie scumbags.
“Peace” protesters??? What a joke!
Army recruiting station vandalized
Not responding to violence is just an invitation for more, and escalated, violence.
The “Chief” probably agrees with the rioters.
