Some RNC Protesters Charged With Terrorism
Terrorism charges lodged against protesters at GOP convention. LA Times:
Prosecutors in Ramsey County, Minn., have formally charged eight alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee -- one of the groups organizing protests at the GOP convention in St. Paul -- with terrorism-related charges, The Times' P.J. Huffstutter reports.
Monica Bicking, Eryn Trimmer, Luce Guillen Givins, Erik Oseland, Nathanael Secor, Robert Czernik, Garrett Fitzgerald and Max Spector, face up to 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge, which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty they could face.
This is so unfair. They caused some trouble, yes, but they are not terrorists. More fascist behavior from the Republicans.

"They caused some trouble, yes..." - Yeah "tlsmith", and I'll wager that if you were harmed by one of them, you'd be out for total retribution.
"More fascist behavior from the Republicans." - Ahhhh, "The Fascist Card" - what took tlsmith so long to use it? I noticed there were arrests of protesters in Denver too, at the Commiecrat Convention. I didn't read that they were fascists.
tlsmith - another tolerant, diplomacy-advocating, peace-loving member of The Insane Liberal Clown Posse. Until you disagree with him or her; then you are a fascist.
