Update from Arrestees

Barbara Cummings just phoned me. She was arrested at the White House and says she is on the fourth bus in a line of six. There are about 50 people on each bus, she said, plus several small vans of people. She estimates 300 have been arrested. The police are making them wait in the buses and vans, with plastic handcuffs on. Barbara slipped hers off to use the phone, but hung up when a police officer saw her and headed her way. She predicted he'd put the cuffs on her and jerk them tight.

Tell them to get arrested MORE!! That'll get the attention of the slackers in the media.

I really wish the DC law enforcement would focus on the terrible crime in their city, their many unsolved murders...I wish Feds would pay attention to our country's borders and ports...instead of hassling citizens voicing their opinions about the inept leadership-the lies of our politicians, illegal wars-obscene profits by big oil-price gouging the folks who used to be middle class just trying to go to work at the few mediocre jobs remaining in this country...We are NO safer today than on 9/10/01...How friggin' sad they have to pick on the people who are trying to improve their country...Those DC police should be ashamed of themselves...Are they pigs again?!

Is that Barbara Cummings the same Barbara Cummings that is the Consul General at the Us Embassy in Lima Peru???
