Cheney Confronted with His Crimes

A huge thank you to everyone who came out today to San Francisco's Palace Hotel, marched, held signs and banners, wore a jail outfit and Cheney mask, sang, chanted and spoke out. I hope you had a great time calling for Cheney's arrest -- I sure did. And It was great that people came from Occupy SF; that young energy is so terrific.
As you may know, Nancy Mancias and I were able to get into the private investment conference which had invited Cheney to speak, and then actually inside the room where Cheney was speaking to a group of investors, bankers, brokers, and entrepreneurs, to disrupt his talk, which focused on his administration's response to 9/11 and terrorism. Both of us had time to separately tell him, loud and clear, that he should be in prison for his crimes. Below is a link to a YouTube of Nancy's outstanding statement to Cheney. Neither of us was arrested or handled roughly; on the contrary, we were treated politely by security. I had sent letters to the San Francisco Police Chief, Sheriff and District Attorney telling them that they have jurisdiction and asking that they take their responsibilities seriously and arrest him. Not surprisingly, they did nothing.
