Wow, insane. A peaceful group of protesters and a reporter are suddenly barraged by police, and then summarily, arrested.

Well, the cops did say "Your time is up", and wasn't Nashville one of the areas that were given an Ultimateum? Before we condem the cops for making the first move, lets find out why they did that.

After that though, yea, their treatment of him was appalling.....

And hey! Finally, more film! Moar please! Remember, this reporter can now use this film as evidence as having identified himself as a Reporter twice, and being apparently told that walking away and such talk back was "Resisting arrest"...... Although, as we don't know the reporters name, he might not actually be a reporter. We'll have to wait and see how it unfolds.

This is what happens when protest is NOT done with the invocation of law. To protest in support of constitutional and lawful government is excellent protection. In this case, with regard to US government performance over the last 11 years, Article 5 can be invoked as a logical demand to stop treason. There have been numerous instances where this can logically be claimed.-

How are cops going to feel about arresting people that are protesting treason with good cause?
