Arrested For Reading The Constitution

Arrested For Reading The Constitution

Only pro-war groups are allowed freedom of speech in police state Amerika as cops kidnap people who recite the very document they swore an oath to protect and uphold

Peaceful onlookers were arrested by police for reading the Constitution while a pro-war group was allowed full freedom of speech in Washington DC recently in another flagrant example of how American cops are now the enforcers of a tyrannical police state.

Police are required to swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution but this didn't stop them from kidnapping members of the Code Pink group, who gathered on a nearby sidewalk to calmly express their disagreement with a Neo-Con pro-war event taking place nearby by reading the bill of rights.

The pro-occupation group "Vets for Freedom" held a rally at Upper Senate Park, Washington DC, on Saturday September 22nd. Their guest speakers included Neo-Con criminals John McCain, Johny Isakson and Joe Lieberman.

Watch the video.

A common theme of the event was that U.S. troops in Iraq were there to "protect the freedom" of the Iraqi people, but this freedom didn't seem to apply to the group of American citizens that decided to use their first amendment right of free speech to voice their dissent.

Five members of Code Pink were arrested, one for reading the Constitution, as police refused to say what the charges were and refused to answer any questions while demonstrators were hauled into paddy wagons.

The events echo similar incidents across the pond in Britain, where a woman was questioned by police and entered into the anti-terror database for reading a mainstream newspaper that had an anti-war headline.

In October 2005, another woman was arrested and convicted for reading out names of British soldiers killed in Iraq at central London's Cenotaph.

Much to the chagrin of Neo-Con trolls who attempted to skew the events seen in the video by claiming the Code Pink group were heckling parents of slain U.S. soldiers, one of the five arrested was an Iraq veteran herself.

"Screw you, anonymous coward. I served my country honorably and proudly - and with my head, not my knees. Dissent is patriotic. If you want to work for a king, go flip burgers," retorted one individual in response to Neo-Cons who tried to justify the arrests on Internet messageboards.

The police have nothing to say.

Very telling. They are probably thinking "We are just following orders, we do what we are told".


"We are just following orders" is what Nazis said while leading

men, women, & children into gas chambers!

Stupid goons around the world will "follow orders", no matter how reprehensible they are.

I want to see the headline...

They probably broke some law

There are so many laws now that no one is really able to interpret them correctly.

And they specifically make laws to "get you", so they can pretty much arrest you any time they want for pretty much doing nothing.

That's nothing new. None of this is. People have just forgotten, that's all. Those who are old enough know all about this stuff. (and those who know something about history)

And the laws vary from state to state, which is also problematic.

It will be interesting to see what actual code violations they are charged with.

more criminal laws = more criminals

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one "makes" them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers-and then you cash in on the guilt." - Ayn Rand, "Atlas Shrugged"
