US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Friday shrugged off a reward for her arrest as a war criminal announced by university students ahead of a visit to New Zealand. Protest is a part of democratic society and student protests are particularly a long honoured tradition in democratic society, Rice told a news conference in the West Australian capital Perth. And I can only say that the United States has done everything that it can to, in this war on terror, live up to our international and our national laws and obligations. New Zealand university students had earlier offered a reward for anyone carrying out a citizens arrest on Rice after her arrival late Friday for talks with Prime Minister Helen Clark on Saturday. Auckland University Student Association (AUSA) president David Do said the reward of 5,000 New Zealand dollars (3,725 US) was being offered for Rices arrest for her role in overseeing the illegal invasion and continued occupation of Iraq. afp
This offer is kind of interesting in light of yesterday's attempt by American terror-tools to "arrest" Karl Rove.
It would appear that vigilante action has succeeded the pink tank as a leading protest fad.
Btw, four of Rove's would-be captors were themselves arrested, while Rove was still free at last report.
Even the cheap five grand is now off the table. The local police told them to stop acting like morons.

And this is something that needs sorting out. Why should the views of students, most of whom do not have families or full-time jobs, count for more than working people?
Yes, but I hate mealy-mouthed responses to behavior of this type. Just once I'd like to see some backbone in the face of leftists.
Backbone comes from riot police in the streets. Until then it’s just words.
$5,000 wouldn’t begin to buy them out of the trouble they’d be in for attempting to arrest the US Secretary of State. I can only imagine.... lol.
JUST words? (tried for an oBambi effect)
they can have him. I believe turdblossom and his bunch has ruined the repugnican party
