Attacked from behind, St. Paul cop courageously sprays entire crowd

Original post made by ALWAYS COME PREPARED on Sep 3, 2008

A St. Paul police officer who was dragging an alleged protester down the street was jumped from behind by what I'm assuming is another protester. The officer quickly sprays the surrounding onlookers who are not involved in the incident and is forced to retreat and loses both men in the process. The angle of the video doesn't show what the alleged protester had done to prompt the officer to drag him down the street.

Just a couple of years ago a group of these anarchists trashed downtown Palo Alto and caused brain damage to an officer in SF.

Fortunately the PAPD prevented a repeat by coming out in full riot gear with automatic weapons and helicopters and drove the thugs out of town.

Much is going on, all at the same time. The primary Obama constituency, which is blacks and the MoveOn crowd, are terrified that victory is being snatched from their jaws. They're in a panic. Feminists, who were already ambivalent about Obama, are are in a state of identity crisis.

But there's a particular subset of the MoveOn crowd - the environmentalists - who see the biggest reversal in fortunes in the history of the environmental movement.
They're the ones who are in a Jim Jones style panic, because they see themselves at the saviors of the universe, and they see all of their heroic efforts being wiped out by an uppity woman.

If you want to understand who's pooping bricks, it's the Gore brigade.
The rich ones stand to lose their investments in carbon-trading schemes. The not-so-rich ones stand to lose their identity. Of course their drawers are soiled.

from the article
Quote
"As he walked along, someone asked him if he had a lighter. He said he didn't think so but he would look and then set his backpack onto the ground and began to look through it.
He explained that almost immediately five police officers surrounded him and demanded that he "put the bag down and put his hands in the air."
He was confused but immediately dropped the bag. Being inexperienced with the police, he did not raise his hands over his head immediately"

In a riot situation if the police tell him to"put his hands in the air"

Then he had better comply AT ONCE and FULLY.

These anarchists have permanently injured many police officers, in the riots in SF they smashed a hammer into a SFPD officers brain.

They are destroying property in St. Paul and threatening bodily harm to civilians many of them are carrying weapons.

They deserve what they get, the police are being very restrained, if this were China they would all be shot dead.

Amy Goodman arrested, handcuffed, and pushed to ground.

Police charge Amy with obstructing the legal process and interferring with a peace officer simply because she asked to speak to a commanding officer to get her producers released.

Michigan man allegedly plotted to set off bomb near Xcel Center

Matthew DePalma of Flint, Mich., has been charged with illegally possessing Molotov cocktails. Web Link

A 23-year-old Michigan man allegedly plotted to set off a homemade bomb in the tunnels near the Xcel Energy Center, hoping it would cause a power outage and lead officials to call off the Republican National Convention, according to charges filed in federal court in Minneapolis.

Matthew B. DePalma of Flint, Mich., has been charged with illegally possessing Molotov cocktails.


These anarchists with bombs need to be put away for a long time, if people are foolish enough to associate with these thugs and rioter it is their responsibility.

If Amy Goodman is in a riot zone she should do what the police tell her to do IMMEDIATELY AND FULLY, lives are in danger, if she does not comply she should be arrested and consider herself lucky that she was not seriously injured for resisting police officers who are trying to protect innocent lives threatened by violent anarchists

Did you go to the Democracy Now! link and listen to Nicole Salazar screaming as she is being violently arrested, including having her nose bloodied?

Matthew DePalma of Flint, Mich., has been charged with illegally possessing Molotov cocktails

He also talked about a plan to use napalm-filled Molotov cocktails on the streets against police officers, stating "I will light one of those pigs on fire," the release said.

So the police know that their lives are threatened by anarchist thugs with bombs,

what do you suggest they do with people who are obstructing and resisting them in their attempts to save lives and prevent devastating burn and blast injuries?

Bike, Just a reminder. This isn't China. It's America. In fact, if this was China, you wouldn't be able to say what you want in this forum.

Someone who starts a disruption in a crowd is as stupid/evil as someone who strikes a match in a dry forest. This is why it is essential that Second Amendment rights are not abridged and that the foolishness of the direct action types are not excused by any misinterpretation of free speech. Judges who allow violence whether in picket lines or in institutions of "Higher" learning are unfit to rule. Citizens have an absolute duty to disperse when ordered by law enforcement folk and an obligation to not obstruct those officers in their duty. However righteous your cause, do not rise up unless you are ready to go the route, and then cry havoc and loose the dogs of war. The nation owes an apology to the Kent State Guardsmen. As for the dead students, think of it as evolution in action {Niven/Pournell)

Wallis:

What should we do with the treacherous devils who have been insisting Islam is out to get us even though no Islamic nation has ever attacked USA or threatened to attack USA?

Exactly how is that unlike yelling "Fire" in a crowded theatre?

When was the last conservative riot, Oh Poor Excuse? There is a difference between expressing an objection and hurling a brick. The Brown Shirts are still a tool of the left. What next - Kristall Nacht?

Seems to me the Israel-First crowd are hellbent on silencing critique of Israel, neocons, zionism, nuking Iran, and occupying Iraq.

This isn't just party before nation, this is Jewish interests before nation.

Bike,

Thanks for showing your true colors. Blacks and liberals are gonna get ya if you don't watch out!

Also love your eagerness to live in a police state.

No, not everybody looks like you. Get over it.

Walter,

Why would there be conservative riots when they've held power for years.

They just bomb abortion clinics and kill doctors.

You really want to go down this path? How about the glorious race riots in the South?

"How about the glorious race riots in the South?" As opposed to the genteel riots in Chicago? At my 6th grade class party, Marilyn Journet was bared from the municipal swimming pool because she was black - that was in Sacramento. That was the start of my unrelenting opposition to racism from any group.
The last time I looked, people who bomb clinics and kill doctors are hunted down, tried, convicted and imprisoned and, in some Southern states, actually executed. Leftist rioters are seldom punished.
