NYPD shuts down Stage-Sob Cindy

From the Village Voice...

Cindy Sheehan may be the Rosa Parks of the anti-war movement. But that didn't stop members of the New York Police Department from marching into the crowd of about 150 people gathered in Union Square Monday to hear her speak and yanking away the microphone....

Police dragged away Paul Zulkowitz, a.k.a. Zool, an organizer with “Camp Casey NYC,” the small encampment that he and other activists set up a month ago in Union Square in solidarity with Sheehan’s vigil outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. The New York branch existed much to the ire of the city’s Parks Department. Today, Zulkowitz was arrested for failing to obtain a sound permit—a charge that normally warrants no more than a summons....

Inspector Michael McEnroy, commander of the 13th Precinct, insisted the shutdown order had nothing to do with the content of Sheehan’s speech, but was instead about the "provocation" caused by Zulkowitz. “This has been going on for much longer than today,” McEnroy said, adding of Sheehan, “I don’t even know the woman.” That last part prompted one p***ed-off onlooker to shoot back: “Haven’t you watched the news or read a paper in the last three months? ”

This is in their news section so apparently the Village Voice belongs to the “schools of journalism” that thinks news is whatever opinion they want you to believe.

Funny how the Liberals so readily assume that in an area of the nation that tends to lean to the left, laws will automatically be bent for them so they can do whatever they want. Kudos to the NYPD for not letting crackpots run rampant.

LOL Funny, Hillary didn't like that "threat, or else". But, seems too Nazi/Saddam tactic to me.
This country is in trouble. No sound permit, eh? Hmmmm, wonder if they checked the permits in Crawford?
