How disrespectful! She should save that vitriol for booing a soldier who admits he's gay and wants the right to openly serve his country or marry the person he loves! Or a coma patient who doesn't have health insurance! Doesn't she know this is America???

Rich Cream: liam76: Rich Cream: Please note that when you are watching the video next week of the start of the beat-down and you see a couple of plastic bottles flying in a high lazy arc through the air, with the caps off so half the water spills out, as they come wobbly falling onto the helmeted heads of the riot police, that you did not see someone throwing those bottles AT the cops. They were throwing it so the cops have an excuse to bust heads.

If the bottle is capped, filled and HURLED DIRECTLY at the cops then it was truly from the crowd.

You'll see.

You can only hurl it directly if you are in the front.

I would assume the aggressive ones would be up front but there could easily be trolls hanging in the back. Just saying if it's not thrown with hostility, it's not for real.


That would assume that the "aggressive" ones wanted a fair fight.

Also if they have shields they are generally faced forward, not up, so lobbing them is more likely to cause damage.

If objects are lobbed from a crowd at the police, the crowd will be treated as hostile, and rightly so.

/don't think police should charge right off the back, but that is a reason to order a crowd to disperse

Son, the only one around here who needs to try to keep up is you. You're either an ignorant, paranoid manchild exposed to too much right wing media machine outrage, or you're a loser who enjoys antagonizing threads with utterly baseless claims, non-existent reasoning, and inflammatory bait.

Either way, you've got a long way to go in life. I pity you, almost.

How much money would have been saved for the taxpayers of Tampa if the people had been released one week, one month or six months ago. Let's say $100/day for each of 1200 (some were transferred) for 180 days. $21,600,000 or so.

You'd just seem like every other member of the group that dreams for tolerance yet has none of your own.

So take this advice for what it's worth: it's ok to disagree with someone, but it isn't ok to wish harm on someone.

First thing you learn about the authority in Florida is that they're not shy about tossing you in a cell for a while.

And you're likely to get a nice reminder of your stay via the beating you get while 'resisting arrest'.

Hobodeluxe: if they're not a threat to society then why lock them up and cost the taxpayer money when a fine would have been sufficient punishment?


Some can't or won't pay a fine? Sometimes a judge may think that few days in jail is a more fitting punishment than a fine that a well-off defendant can easily pay. Sometimes it takes people a few days to get their bond or fine money together.

There's a complicated mix of reasons. Community programs for non-violent offenders are sometimes just as expensive when administrative costs are taken into account, and what do you do with somebody who doesn't show up for his court-ordered program?
 
2012-08-26 11:08:46 AM  
It's a free country and everybody has a right to assemble and hold political activities. If we expect police to arrest anti-Ku Klux Klan protestors who would get out of hand at a Ku Klux Klan rally then we should expect the same police protection of a Republican convention, scaled up relative to the size of the problem.

Political protesters are the lamest bunch of losers. Protesting a convention of people that share similar political beliefs among themselves simply because you disagree with their views? I guess voting just ain't enough (assuming more than 5% of protesters actually vote).

You're generous. No misspellings, no gratuitous references to 'second amendment solutions', corrent punctuation and grammar throughout.

And worst of all, it's boring. His biggest jab is that protesters don't vote. I mean, wtf, son?

BronyMedic: feckingmorons: If anyone solicits another to commit a crime and it is witnessed by police (an on-view or probable cause arrest) they will most certainly be taken to jail. The police had a sweep of prostitutes last week in preparation. If anyone, delegate or not, breaks the law they will be arrested. No get out of jail free cards for anyone. Tampa's mayor is a Democrat and the police chief is as well ( and her domestic partner is too). They are as no nonsense on crime as any Republican.

Well, and it's not a crime - so let's not pretend I'm saying that, I'm just curious how many M4M postings are going go pop up suddenly on the local Craigslist site when the convention gets into full swing.

Gawker did a story on the last one on how they suddenly had hundreds of those ads, and a sudden surge in people using certain apps designed to find a quick gay hook-up at your hotel.

/not that it would suprise me to find a bunch of closeted gay republicans.


Maybe the surge in liberal gay protestors has all those M4M posters happily picking away at their keys.

See? More than one can pay at this game.

Liberal gays don't need to advertise on CL. They tend to congregate in locations that cater to them. Publicly.

Gay GOPers, on the other hand, hide their preferences and lie about it publicly. That's why they're constantly getting busted and caught on CL and bus stations and airport restrooms and rest stops and all the other spots that gays used to hang out before the majority started taking pride in their preferences.

In short: ONLY GAY REPUBLICANS WOULD BE ON CRAIG'S LIST.

ghare: A toy watergun will get you landed in jail at the convention.

A real gun will not.


You could fill a water gun with some noxious fluid so they baned them.

The state would not allow the city to ban firearms as the regulation of firearms is reserved to the state. The secret service can ban them in the areas they control, and they have.

If you spray someone with bleach or urine from a water gun you will get arrested. If you spray someone with bullets from a handgun you will most probably be killed as the police presence is quite high.

If you carry your handgun legally and don't shoot anyone how will anyone ever know?

I won't be carrying my gun for the part of the convention to which I am going. I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop... there will be plenty of cops so I don't need a gun.

I've debunked the hyperbole of the linked article so now the only response is there might be closeted gay people. Yes, there might be, but is it proper to vilify people because of their sexual orientation? Wasn't Anderson Cooper closeted until recently?

The Log Cabin Republicans are having a social hour this evening in Ybor city, so I am fairly certain gay Republicans will be represented at the convention. Probably left handed people too! 

Oh, and the rest stop sexual tryst with a minor child arranged online by a legislator was a Democrat, but they won't file charges because it is OK to sodomize 17 year olds you meet on the internet in Minnesota.

So, constantly means what in your book?

You seriously need to read "Freakonomics" more than anybody else I know at the moment.

I'm sure the few closeted gay republicans in attendance would have the resources to hook up outside of Craig's list. I'm postulating that the increase in support staff, protesters, gawkers, etc would probbly make this a target rich environment for gay Craig's List posters. I'm sure that there are some significant surges in a variety of other services provided such as baby sitting, room cleaning, home rentals, car rentals and catering as well.
 
2012-08-26 11:33:00 AM  
Yeah, unfortunately due to a little driving issue I can say they are getting prepared...and as FM describes above, they have 2 jails, about 2 miles apart, and if you are a guest for long they usually bus you over to the second one (apparently the first [orient road] is older, but has the booking facilities).

It's weird, there are banks and banks of new phones being added, and plywood dividers in the main jail hallway. Except for the phones, I'm not 100% sure what all the 'renovations' (looks like they were done by the lowest bidder's retarded cousin) are supposed to accomplish.

However, I will say this, they are generally in no hurry to get people out of there.Not as much as you might think.
