As Alice In Wonderland famously said, "things are getting curiouser and curiouser...!" And indeed if you look at the reports on the news, you got to wonder where the intelligence and common sense in the DC Beltway went. Perhaps into the Potomac. It certainly does not exist in the law enforcement officers there.
Can you explain to me how you arrest legitimate protesters, including 8 Democratic members of Congress, for participating in a peaceful pro-immigration reform demonstration, while the insipid idiots who are members of the rep-ugh-blican and tea bagger parties, who have shut down the government -illegally, I might add - are allowed to walk around scott free.
If there was a threat that needed to be curtailed, it certainly should be recognized as those who are trying to overthrow the government, those who are holding the government hostage; those who have fecklessly frozen people's salaries while they twiddle their thumbs and play keep away.
Let's see these goons do their real duty. Want to score some brownie points? Go arrest Bone head Boehner and Cruz, and the rest of the crew for treason and attempts to overthrow the government; for reckless endangerment of innocent people's lives; for deprivation of the rights of American people. Where is the captain of this cockamamie DC (Dumb Cops) police department, anyway? Take his badge, and furlough him.

Police would not identify those arrested. Representatives of the social policy organization Center for Community Change and The Associated Press witnessed the arrests of Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga.; Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill.; Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz.; Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Joseph Crowley and Charles Rangel, both D-N.Y.; Al Green, D-Texas; and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.,
Representatives of other groups whose members attended the rally, such as United Farm Workers and Farmworker Justice, confirmed that several of their members were arrested as well.
Those arrested will be charged with "crowding, obstructing and incommoding" under the local laws of the District of Columbia, the Capitol Police said. The arrests began about 4 p.m. EDT and had ended two hours later, police said in a statement.
Before being arrested, Gutiérrez said he planned the act of civil disobedience "so the speaker of the House can free Congress and finally pass immigration reform."
The rally took place after the six-time Grammy winners Los Tigres del Norte performed at the National Mall during a show in which the Mexican band dedicated each song to the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally.
Prospects for passage of a comprehensive immigration bill appear dim. A bill passed by the Democratic-controlled Senate and backed by the White House includes billions of dollars for border security as well as a 13-year path to citizenship for those already in the U.S. illegally.
It's unclear whether the GOP-dominated House will ever pass legislation that could form the basis for a final deal with the Senate. Most House Republicans have rejected this comprehensive approach, and the House Judiciary Committee has moved forward with individual, single-issue immigration bills that could come to the floor sometime later this year or next.
___What's so ludicrous is how one justifies these arrests as opposed to the arrests of the real perpetrators, who will, if gone unchecked, bring the government to a halt.

The great thing is that President Barack Obama will not deal with anything that deprives the American people of their rights to Affordable Health Care, educational opportunity, decent affordable homes, and all the other guarantees that country claims to be about. The depraved indifference on the part of these rep-ugh-blicans towards their constituents indicates to me that in addition to the need for police intervention, perhaps more appropriately would be to have them psychoanalyzed to see if they're even fit to represent Americans. I frankly think that there should be immediate recall for those who show that they are really criminally insane flying under the guise of being responsible.
And for those of you who like horror stories and vampire TV shows/movies- you should make sure you go dressed as one of your favorite blood suckers from the rep-ugh-blican/tea bagger party: Boehner, Cruz, Bachmann -- take your pick.
Now that you know, what will you do?
Stay Blessed &
