Key Bridge Wash DC Blocked
Physical observation on site in Arlington highrise in Rosslyn ^ | March 20 2003 | self

Posted on 03/20/2003 5:39:52 AM PST by muawiyah

Arlington Police and fire have blocked off Lynn Street and other streets in vicinity of Key Bridge. Looks like hundreds of police on the scene. So far no word on what precipitated the event, but this hasn't happened before.

Dirty hippie disrupters maybe? Would you be able to smell them, from where you are?

Peace-loving protesters were reported to have gotten on the Orange line of the Metro at Eastern Market station headed to the Rosslyn station. I suppose this is a response to their attempts to disrupt traffic at the nearby Key Bridge. Hopefully the police will clear them out soon and lock them up if they break the law.

The mayor probably setup a revenue enhancing toll gate for non DC residents.

Fond memories of that area....My honeymoon night was spent at the Key Bridge Marriot.....

Georgetown on one side of the bridge and Arlinton VA. on the other....CIA Langely is just a short trip on the VA side on the GW Parkway....

If it is those idiot "peace" protestors blocking traffic I hope those hundreds of police have batons in hand.

Thank you. My guess is the protestors are at it again. Hundreds went to Rummy's house in NW yesterday - and stopped. Local Channel 5 (FOX) is reporting something about protestors now.

The government should up the charges on this type of protesting to a felony. The number of protestors would drop dramatically if this scum new that by protesting they were pretty much relegating themselves to being unemployed. Employers won't hire felons who have a propensity to disrupt the workplace.

Don't we have crowd control water hoses anymore?

How about job applications? Just have a low-flying police chopper drop job applications on the crowd. They'll scatter like crazy.

If I were a betting man, I would guess that the majority of them are used to being unemployed already.

Will the police give them lice baths in jail? If so, will some of them sue them for killing their pets?

Just run 'em over, and make their families liable for the damage to the car.

On the other hand, if fewer folks get into Washington to "work on our behalf" at the Government, is that all bad?

Don't we have something we could put these unAmerican folk to doing....something constructive to keep them busy? Why didn't someone think to hold a giant peace-nik woodstock for this week? That way they'd all be in one place where we could keep an eye on 'em....

It would really bug me if some pampered liberal kid who has never had to hold down a job caused me or my family to lose income or vacation time because they prevented me from getting to work. These protestors have way too much time on their hands, most of us might like to protest for our side but we have jobs to do.

I got an email from one of my co-workers - he has a blackberry. They are trapped on the Orange Line train from Vienna into DC because of the protestors.

Can we borrow that bulldozer and the Israeli driver? That would solve the problem in a matter acceptable to me.

Tear gas will hang around and be very uncomfortable in this kind of weather.

It's my understanding that a court ruling after the GOP convention in 2000 restricts Philly police from automatically arresting protesters who block streets.
