It’s too bad that you aren’t close by. You might still check because not all of the protests are at RCs. We’re going out against a group tonight (as we do every Friday) at a busy intersection that isn’t near a center. Next time you might be able to get off early.

Take care, and keep the faith!

Peaceful is fine, but if they attack me or anyone with our group they will be prosecuted to the fullest. I have a cellphone with the number to the police station programed in. I am willing to be hurt for my country, if needed. I don’t back down, and I don’t give up! Protecting my country from all enemies foreign and domestic didn’t stop when I got out of the Army. The same goes for my boyfriend.

"MPDC: How to file a complaint. MPDC Homeland Security Bureau: Asst. Chief Patrick Burke (202) 727-9361 Special Operations: no name given of person in charge (202) 671-6511"

Love it - sarc/ Looking at the complaint categories, none of them appear to cover not doing their jobs, arresting protesters, protecting civilians or property.

Marine Barracks is 8th and I SE, recruiting center under seige is at 14 and L NW on the other side of DC.

There are 150 Border Patrol Agents just down the street in the Regan Building that would love to get in on some serious stick time.

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

Like they wouldnt be spitting on those soldiers if they were alive today.

MPDC Chief Cathy Lanier was there before the attacks, ORDERING HER OFFICERS to DO NOTHING if the station was attacked.

Is MPDC for Military Police?

It's the repsonibility of the DC Police to control rioters , isn't it?

If it's Military Police, the scum would like nothing more than to push them in 'attacking' the poor helpless scourge of humanity and the M slime Media would have a field day.

These people are worse than the al Q, Taliban villagers that attack our troops - I say 'worse' because they are supposed to be Americans.

The full formal name is “Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia”.

They use the acronym MPDC.

Wed, 19 Mar 2008 19:00:02 GMTE-mail | Print2 arrested at Iraq war protest at military recruiting center

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Two people were arrested Wednesday during a protest marking the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq.

Eleven protesters with Des Moines Catholic Workers carried signs and a mock coffin draped with an American flag into the hallway of the Armed Forces Career Center, a Des Moines recruiting office.

Officials at the center called police and asked the protesters to leave.

Edward Bloomer, 61, and Kirk Brown, 25, both of Des Moines, were arrested for trespassing and taken to jail.

Protester Mona Shaw of Iowa City said she believes it’s her moral obligation to stand up against the war.

‘’I was raised that when you saw something wrong happening, you should get involved to stop it,’’ said Shaw, who has a sister in the Navy.

Shaw said her sister is about to be deployed on her fifth tour to Iraq.

‘’This is personal for me,’’ Shaw said. ‘’I’ve stood at funerals with flag drawn coffins.’’

‘’She tells me she’s very proud of me,’’ Shaw said of her sister. ‘’She says ‘You go. You stop this ... thing.’’

Shaw said protesting at a military recruitment center was appropriate.

‘’It makes me feel sad because people are being assigned a horrible task, to an enterprise, where there’s a high chance they’re going to be killed,’’ she said. ‘’I’m here to keep working class kids from getting killed.’’

Protester Reetzi Hughes, 14, of Des Moines, said too many young people are dying in the war. She thinks military recruiters are starting too young in contacting high school students.

‘’We’re here to show that w million viewers.

MPDC = Metropolitan Police DC

This new chief (Lanier) is almost as worthless as former chief Ramsey - who has since moved on to become the Police Commissioner in Philadelphia.

God Help the citizens of Philadelphia.

"Is MPDC for Military Police?"

No, it is the civilian police force being ordered to not take any action. The M is for Metropolitan.

Protesters call for end to war
By Leo Shane III, Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Thursday, March 20, 2008

Leo Shane III / S&S
Protesters rally outside the Internal Revenue Service Building in Washington, D.C. Wednesday morning as part of citywide protests against the Iraq War.

Leo Shane III / S&S
Organizers said they chose the IRS headquarters to highlight the taxpayer fund being used for military operations overseas. Organizers said 31 protesters were detained for crossing police barricades.

WASHINGTON — Hundreds of protesters fanned out across the nation’s capital Wednesday to call for an end to military operations in Iraq, but city police reported none of the major civic disruptions organizers had predicted.

The events, scheduled to coincide with the five-year anniversary of the start of the Iraq war, came a few days after pro-war groups marched on the National Mall in support of a continued U.S. presence in Iraq.

Leslie Cagan, co-chair of United for Peace and Justice, said the goal of dispersed demonstrations was to bring awareness to the “shock and awe, shockingly and awful occupation in Iraq still.”

Small groups of protesters with signs reading “Out of Iraq” and “Bring Them Home” wandered outside lobbyists’ offices on K Street, while about 100 more huddled outside the American Petroleum Institute’s main door accusing the oil industry of perpetuating the war.

Another group of veterans and peace activists marched on the National Mall and the National Archives with upside-down flags and anti-war cadences.

A marching band playing Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” led nearly 200 others down to the Internal Revenue Service Headquarters to protest the use of taxpayer funds in the war. Organizers said 31 protesters were detained there, although city police said only one was charged.

Law enforcement also reported at noon only sporadic, short-lived traffic backups on downtown streets, despite protesters’ plans to snarl traffic and block major roads to highlight their message.

A group of counter protesters stood outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center downtown, but said police did a good job keeping the two groups apart.

“They didn’t let them down this street at all,” said Kristinn Taylor, head of the D.C. chapter of Free Republic. “[The other protesters] are throwing in their lot with our terrorist enemies overseas, and we just wanted to make sure nothing happened to this center.”

Tarak Kauff, an organizer with Veterans for Peace, said group leaders emphasized nonviolent civil disobedience to Wednesday’s participants. His group carried with them a mock arrest warrant for President Bush to be delivered during their protests outside the White House later in the day.

“This is a horrible war, and we need to stop it and take care of our veterans when they get back,” he said.

A number of the groups involved in Wednesday’s events are planning to return to Washington again next month, to protest expected congressional testimony by Gen. David Petraeus, head of Multi-National Force– Iraq. But groups that support the Iraq mission are also planning major rallies of their own for that testimony.

No, it's going just according to plan. Can't have a summer of riots if the "pigs" break them up in the spring ...

I believe that the 'Rats WANT nothing but riot after riot leading up to the election.

They hate America.

They want to destroy America.

Note that they’re dragging up all the communist inspired anti-American themes from the riots of the ‘60s. Some of the organizations even have the same name (SDS, for example).

Even in the ‘60s, it wasn’t really about not wanting to serve ... that was just an excuse. It was about hating America. It was about imposing socialist tyranny on America. And it hasn’t changed a bit.

I’m old enough to be having a big deja-vu over this whole thing.

Kristinn said that Channels 5 and 7 had crews stop by a few minutes ago, it was too loud to hear if they interviewed any of the defenders of the center about the violence of the "peace" rioters.

That Mona Shaw has memorized all the anti-American rhetoric, hasn’t she? I’d like to say they don’t come any dumber, but her sister is encouraging her to protest against her. Then again, I bet Mona’s lying about having a sister in the Navy.

Certainly ... but "our government" is of a Federal and Republican nature.

The Berkeley PD fell down on the job. The MPDC is falling down on the job. Both are controlled by 'RATS.

Interestingly, the San Fransisco PD (also 'rat controlled) has apparently arrested a bunch of these critters. Kudos to them.

I fully expect more aggression from these creeps. I also expect Hussein Obama to support such, and Hildebeeste as well.

From this morning, this is a sample of the anarchists. Police are at the corner of 13th & L Street.



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.

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...
