DC Recruiting Center Under Attack: Rocks and Paint Bombs: Cops Under Orders to do Nothing
On-Scene Call From Kristinn | March 19, 2008

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.

Someone from 8th and I should just show up with a Humvee sporting a Ma Deuce.

It worked for rioting coal miners when they were striking. It will work just fine on hippie scumbags.

Anti-war protesters participate in the 'March of the Dead' in Washington, D.C. USA on 19 March 2008. The protesters wore 'death masks' and placards with the names of soldiers, civilians, and journalists who have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001. Today is the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. Protests against the Iraq are expected around Washington today. EPA/STEFAN ZAKLIN

Not responding to violence is just an invitation for more, and escalated, violence.

The “Chief” probably agrees with the rioters.

"This Chief is a disaster. She should step aside in the face of immoral orders not to respond."

Exactly right. We can't blame the Chief for her orders. If she had any honor, however, her resignation would be on her superior 's desk eight o'clock in the AM.

The Marines are in DC to protect it from attack. I don't believe that violates posse commitatus ~ on the other hand, it's raining heavy off and on again around the DC area.

Not a good day for a demonstration.

These people do have a right to "protest" ~ and some of them will always be violent.

This evening a bunch of them will return to their hotels in this area. Their cars will be pryed open and looted by the local MS13 unit ~ they love the high end digital cameras this sort of people bring with them.

Justice will be done ~

Why is it some police chiefs feel it is necessary to bedazzle their uniforms with a rank representing about 30 more years of serving this country than they could ever dream of doing???

A 4 star police chief...That just pisses me off more than anything, except she’s not doing her job...That irks me more...

I’ll be at the house here in a little while...I bet we do not hear a peep about this stuff ANYWHERE on the news tonight...

Its almost getting to the point where it is just not worth it anymore...

If our conservative decency does not allow us to answer this seditious and treasonous acts of violence with the corrective response that totally decimates this activity, just because some may believe it would lower ourselves to “their” level???

I dunno, it just doesn’t make the trip with me anymore...

With very few exceptions Police Chiefs are nothing but political lapdogs for the local Mayor. They will only enforce those laws their masters deem appropriate, and public safety and decency be dammed.

Last night I was reading “Xenocide” (Orson Scott Card, second “Ender’s Game” sequel). There was a very insightful section about the importance of defusing mobs, and not giving into “oh, let ‘em get it out of their system”.

Lines need to be drawn.

No wonder the Mayor of Washington, D.C. wishes to keep the “citizens” disarmed by banning hand guns.........he obviously doesn't want any of his electorate shot dead as they deserve.

In this manner - only the lawless have guns....

DC is very keen on achieving “home rule”. Inaction in this case may well stem from that sentiment.

This is a perfect illustration of the iron grip that political correctness has on this country. Police only arrest the right “kind” of criminals. This is positively infuriating, but it will absolutely never ever ever ever change until We the People declare that enough is enough. And mean it.

Good for you! I bet the recruiters appreciated your sentiments. Now call the other ones, because it isn’t just the Marines that are under attack.

34 isn’t alot, but if patriots don’t get out in the streets, then it is a win for the anti-Americans.

Peaceful is fine. Recurring peaceful is fine.

It’s the ones that aren’t, especially when coordinated nationwide simultaniously, that garner my concern.

Actually they are probably hoping for violence.

Of course they are ... the leftist protesters thirst for a return to the Mythical Sixties. They've said so themselves, calling for folks to "re-create '68". What they want, apparently, is a "long hot summer" of riots. Obama has effectively threatened such, and so have these protesters.

They've been going on about "vietnam" for five years. Can't have a "vietnam" without riots ...
