About That DC Protest Yesterday

Military Families Voice of Victory got a very interesting comment from an article about recruiting center attacks yesterday from coast to coast.

One of the cities reported about was DC "SDS threw paint bombs, rocks and damaged police cars. Witnesses have reported that MPDC Chief Cathy Lanier has ordered the police to do nothing if the center was attacked." This was from a report phone in which was also reported here at FR.

Today a response was made by Communications at MPD. "The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) must enforce local law and the rights afforded to every person under the United States Constitution. The law allows MPD personnel to make arrests only when there is probable cause to do so. The MPD cannot arrest every peaceful demonstrator for the sake of a few rowdy participants. There has not, and will never be a directive from Chief Cathy Lanier or a member of her command staff to do nothing when the law is being broken."

The trackback on the IP address checks out for a contact with the DC government.

It looks like complaints may have struck a nerve.

You all should contact WTOP News and complain about the lack of enforcement.
