why the handcuffs.
The guy shouted and cursed at the Vice President of the
United States. OF COURSE he has to be checked out. He
could be a security risk. It makes no difference what party
the VP is from - dem or republican - a potential security risk
has to be checked. Considering all the weapons and shootings
that have been happening down there, as well as all the stress
from the situation, I would hope that they would cuff the guy
as they checked him. (and I'd say that no matter what political
party the VP was from)
The guy had to know that he'd be checked out and considered
a security risk until cleared. He probably WANTED to be cuffed
so he could get more attention.
Where was Cheney? Was he in New Orleans? It's still martial
law there. Civil rights are suspended during martial law. I don't
know if Mississippi has martial law along the coast as well.
