    After watching the video in this thread,

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum30/38522.html

    I was inclined to look up the mass arrest that happened in St. Paul, MN in late 2009 that was covered near the end of the video in the above link.

    Here's an article on it:

    http://minnesotaindependent.com/4340...rst-day-of-rnc

    From the article,

    “The city has admitted that people were arrested preemptively in this park,” said attorney Robert Kolstad at a press conference held on the site of the mass arrest today. “They arrested them because they were afraid of what they might do in the future, which is a dangerous path for our government to take. Taken to its logical conclusion, what it means is that the government now believes that they can come to our houses and arrest us because they think that we might do something wrong. Our constitution simply doesn’t permit that.”

    Emphasis added.

    Thanks for posting this EM, I was wondering about the Park incident as well. It reminded me of a vision I had when Iarrived at the first OC Picnic in Warren.

    A movie held in the future where cops use people to see the future of who MIGHT kill some one and they then stop the possible murderer.

    I really liked the movie. It's not one that I left the theater going on and on about but it's one that I seem to watch whenever it's on tv.

    Here's the plot:

    Reminds me of a joke I heard this morning:

    One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
    cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.


    Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat
    out.
    She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up,
    andbegins to read her book.
    The peace and solitude are magnificent.

    Along comes aFish and Game Wardenin his boat.
    He pulls upalongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

    'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')

    'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

    'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'

    'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment.

    For all I know you could start at any moment.
    I'll have to take you in and write youup.'

    'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexualassault,' says the woman.

    'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

    'That's true, but you have all the equipment..
    For all Iknow you could start at any moment.'

    'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.

    Comment posted September 2, 2009 @ 8:48 am Meanwhile, self proclaimed “Republican Terrorists” and AK47 packing extremists can show up at an Obama event and be allowed to mill about freely. I just don’t get it!!!!!


    I only saw the AR?




    I wonder what how the police would have handled LGOC during that mass arrest.
