They are not amused:

"The County is re-evaluating the agreements that allowed our officers to be put in a compromising position that endangered their health and safety, and that of the people around them, for a purpose not worthy of our mutual aid obligations."

It's kinda like when you're at a baseball game with your mistress, and your wife's friends bust you on the Jumbotron.

Except it's not the Jumbotron, it's CNN.

And it's not your wife, it's the bluer-than-blue progressive county board that hires and fires your police chief.

And you're not just sitting with your mistress eating a hot dog, you're helping the U.S. Park Police and a bunch of MPs be jack-booted fascist thugs, clearing a peaceful demonstration so that Trump can have a photo op.

I'm seriously impressed that they cleared the square at 6:45 PM, the board picked up on it almost immediately thanks to the CNN feed, and by 8:30 PM they'd been ordered home and were back across the river.    That's leadership in action.

"ACPD's Civil Disturbance Unit responded to a mutual aid request by United States Park Police for assistance maintain peace and order on federal park land," department spokeswoman Ashley Savage said. "ACPD began providing support [Sunday]."

Exactly what is going on in Arlington, VA that they need a "Civil Disturbance Unit"?

The county has over 200,000 people in a 26 square mile area, contains the Pentagon, and is directly across the river from D.C.  Sometimes the locals get their protest on.   It's a proud American tradition.

I'd be surprised if any city or county in the U.S. with a population of at least 50,000 didn't have a riot squad or equivalent.

By pointing this out and removing your personnel, you will only hurt his fee-fees, and Cheetolini doesn't like his fee-fees hurt.

Good for Arlington! I'm of course frightened of Trump, but he's just one guy that can't do much without people following orders. I'm far more frightened of his party that allows him and the many people in government that just follow along with his sadistic and self-serving crazy--and while in positions to see far more of his crazy than the press or the public ever learn about.

I'm not sure if ours does. I know we have a SWAT team, but the closest thing to a riot I can remember is college parties getting out of hand.  There was one a few years ago - multiple house parties and drunken students in the streets.  (nothing too bad...a few bottles were thrown. A stop sign was torn down. stuff like that).

The cops showed up, but did nothing until other cops from  outside town showed up.  They have a mutual assistance agreement too.  It's probably better that they didn't just dress up in riot gear and clear the streets like we saw yesterday.

Hey folks how many times has this happened to you? You're looking for that perfect photo opp to appeal to your base but the local police are following the law. Give up, actually do something...NO, just find a compliment police force with a mutual aid agreement and have them act as your heavies. But wait that's not all if you act in an underhanded way you get the bonus of dividing local governments and police agencies in a time of civil unrest. Operators are standing by so call  1-900-TRUMP DESTROYS, have your stimulus check ready.

The rector of St. John's reported that she and other clergy and members of her ministry, who were on the church patio to hand out water and snacks, performing the work of their faith, were driven from their church grounds by tear gas and police batons so the POTUS could do a photo op there. I absolutely can't get over this, my mind is reeling.


I dunno how true that is, but if it is true, it puts the whole affair in a much, much nastier light. Driving out the legal tenants of a church to take a photo op.... Well, none of the historical comparisons are good.

There are two accounts from two of the church employees out there already, and a response from the Diocese leadership. I'd say it's pretty well established at this point.
