Current Los Angeles Protests Turning Ugly (Thursday night)
FR | March 20, 2003 | self

Posted on 03/20/2003 7:04:50 PM PST by lainie

Gathered information from KFI radio, local television, and police scanner:

The idiots at the corner of Wilshire & Veteran are growing in number, cops are starting to fight back (hear a lot of "double time" and "need it yesterday"), and reports are that the crowd is starting to burn flags.

Before its newscast ended, KABC-TV showed riot-geared police pushing folks out of streets and onto sidewalks. The poor reporter was obviously shaken and quake-voiced. Looked ugly and sounds like it's getting worse as of 19:02.

You just watch: There are going to be more casualties from the "peace" protests than from the war.

Idiots.

This reminds me of the riots that supposedly resulted from Rodney King...they went out and burned down stores and stole VCRs, you know, all the things a normal person would do to protest against brutality.

Yup. This will be bad. The protestors want martial law declared. It could happen, but the protestors won't like the result.

I don't wish them any harm. I wish them to get out of the smoke and let their brains clear up so they can see what they are doing. They have a bad case of Fog of War.

scanner: 'we are going to continue holding these positions for an undetermined length of time. until further notice'

Every time a cop goes on the mic, you can hear scumbags screaming in the background.

I wish them harm because they are aiding and abetting the enemy by draining precious police resources from the war on terror having to deal with them. What if we have a terror attack right now? Do we have enough police to deal with it?

Yes, they are doing as much damage as terrorists, maybe more.

NB: Think! If inhalables and injectables have left anything capable of thought in the brain.

As far as I'm concerned, let the left commit suicide!!

My 200 channel scanner from Radio Shack will no longer pick up LAPD frequencies.

"I don't wish them any harm." - I wish them plenty of harm - they're not anti-war, they're anti-American (they were'nt out in the streets protesting the socialist when they were in power in the 90s engaged in wars). They should be charged with sedition when they cross the line from protest/free speach to disturbance, especially under code orange terror alert - not slap on the wrist, but felonies carrying at least 1-2 years in prison with hefty fines.

This kind of personnel losses don't bother me one iota. In fact the "culling" keeps the blood line positive in that we eradicate the idiots.

I wish this government would activate the law on the books against this and throw some of these anarchists in the pokey. That would stop this yesterday! I heard the law read today on a local talk show by an attorney. I can't recall the name of it, but it starts with an S, and I am sure some freepers know what I mean.

I was monitoring that thread. Why were the cops letting the peace rioters run rampant with no pursuit at all??

Don't count on it...a protester in SF has commited suicide.

The logical culmination of an egomania bordering on solipsism. Ayn Rand had these types pegged 50 years ago.
