TAMPA — Police arrested one protester on Monday afternoon and Tampa police Chief Jane Castor said that so far officers and protesters alike are getting along during this storm-shortened session of the Republic National Convention.

"We hope this is it," Castor said. "But I doubt that's going to be the case."

Police said protester Dominick De La Rosa, 19, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of wearing a mask — which is prohibited in the event zone — and resisting arrest without violence.

According to Castor, De La Rosa, who identified himself as a chef at the Living Room restaurant in Dunedin, was part of a group of 25 to 30 protesters running through downtown.

There goes business. (And I'll bet the idiot used to get paid with the evil profits...)

One wonders how the citizens of Tampa, (known as Tampacs? (sp)) are taking it.

I’m reading that headline thinking of an early post about those dressed as giant vaginas and trying very hard not to type something that could get me banned.

Article says police searched a car, fearing a pipe bomb, but only found a "piece of ordinary PVC pipe." However, Freepers will recall PVC pipe isn't ordinary as used by the hard core left.

I’m thinking the same thing. All those wet ‘costumes” outside the convention.
