Sheehan Arrested

Read it here.

Sheehan, carrying a photo of her son in his Army uniform, was among hundreds of protesters who marched around the White House and then down the two-block pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. When they reached the front of the White House, dozens sat down -- knowing they would be arrested -- and began singing and chanting "Stop the war now!"

Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests. One man climbed over the White House fence and was quickly subdued by Secret Service agents.

Kind of a pointless thing to do, if you ask me. I don't see how getting arrested is going to help anyone. She's got the whole "civil disobedience" things down, anyhow.

The purpose of the police is to protect the people. I do not understand how anyone would be in danger in this situation.

What is she holding a picture of her son for? I'll save this debate for another time.
