I wouldn't second guess that event because of the people who have been "replying" to the Tony's 7 thread.
The majority of VCDL members are good, normal, law-abiding citizens, who are normally very professional. I don't think that by any means you can take some of the newcomers to OCDO as a representation of the members that are planning on being at the City Counsel meeting.
And why would it bother you if the whole police department was there or not? If you let that thought intimidate you, then aren't you letting the MPD get away with the some of the exact actions that we are protesting? (That is the intimidation of law-abiding citizens.)
I do think that some of the recent press releases that have mentioned OCDO in reference to the Tony's incident has brought some colorful characters to this forum . (Colorful to say the least!) :what:
