George Clooney Arrested At Sudan Protest
3:24pm UK, Friday March 16, 2012 Police have arrested George Clooney during a protest outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington DC.
The actor, who is president of United to End Genocide, was arrested along with several Democrat politicians and other human rights and faith leaders for civil disobedience.
The campaigners were protesting the humanitarian emergency that is reportedly threatening the lives of 500,000 people.
After speaking on the steps of the embassy to hundreds of activists, members of Congress and activist leaders were asked by police to leave the scene. When they refused, police arrested them.
Clooney, his father, Nick and others, including Democratic politican Jim Moran of Virginia and civil rights leader Ben Jealous, were arrested after being warned three times not to cross a police line outside the embassy.
They were handcuffed and placed into a US Secret Service van.

Hopefully a hanging offense.
Throw away the key!
The Three Stooges.
Lets see where he’s been the last few days and see if there is an accomplice, someone aiding and abetting...
However, he also is a rabid abortion supporter. And guess who abortion affects most and what its effect is on those people? Why, blacks, of course, and when you figure that half of all blacks never make it out of their mother's womb alive, the effect is - genocide against blacks.
Hollywood liberals - brain dead.
I wonder where this guy was in 1994 when the Rwandan Genocide was going on?
...He shows that theres a more sinister side to this. And that is a George Soros connection to the whole influence on the administration of deploying U.S. military forces in there, certainly under the guise of going after Joseph Kony [leader of the rebel Lord's Resistance Army accused of major human rights atrocities], but I think there is some very good information in that article that shows there is a Soros connection to this whole thing. And, fundamentally, its about oil.
I guess he is sad he didn’t win the Oscar, and needed the attention.
Probably rehearsing for a future movie...
While I have no love lost for Clooney and the other loonies, the genocide in Sudan is Islam in the North killing Christians & animists in the South.
In this case, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”. If Clooney et al can stop the Sudan genocide (this is real genocide, Islamic jihadist genocide) then more power to him.
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
This reminds me of a Michael Crichton book...the “Ted Danson” character ended up being eaten alive by cannibals...he thought he was saving the world from globull warming or something like that...til the old lady sliced a piece of his cheek off...
He’s lucky he didn’t get arrested in Sudan.
Here’s hoping the cops gave him a good old fashioned wood shampoo for his efforts.
Clooney is a flaming liberal, raised by his parents to be thus. However, I cannot fault him for his dedication to this cause. I give him credit where credit is due.
However, he will continue to be Hollywood’s fair-haired boy, and we will hear (and see) no end of it. Yech.
Shouldn’t he be in the Sudan protesting?
