ST. PAUL — Even by the loftiest of estimates, the crowds protesting the National Republican Convention here this week have been a tenth the size of the crowds at the 2004 convention in New York City.
But by Thursday afternoon, the number of arrests had swelled to nearly a quarter as many as in New York.
Protesters have complained all week that police have gone overboard in their attempts to quash potential violence and ensure the convention — being held at the Xcel Energy Center — proceeded without any interruptions.
"They most definitely created the police state they wanted," said Jeff Sear, 26, a St. Paul technician arrested Monday and charged with a misdemeanor.

Yeah....I know....I rarely buy from Dominos.....but not because of the conservative political bent of Tom Monaghan... it's because sometimes one of his local delivery sites happens to be closer than, say, the local Pizza Hut!!
Try to deflect as much as you want, just because I bought a Pizza from Tom Monaghan....man....!!!!
Look.....people's attitudes change, especially when presented with new information.
Do I stop using 'Domino's' just because I KNOW he is a right wing catholic?
Of course not!!
