Denver's police union is facing criticism for printing a commemorative T-shirt that makes light of the use of violence by police, particularly in the wake of 154 arrests during the week of Democratic National Convention this past August.
"We get up early, to beat the crowds," the shirt reads, followed by "2008 DNC." The words flank a grinning police officer holding a baton and wearing a hat with a crossed-out number "68," presumably making reference to activist organization Recreate 68, which staged several anti-war demonstrations during the convention.

Sure there are a lot of people at protests who are just there to cause chaos and tell a good story to all their friends. People who don't know # from shinola and people who are clueless and act stupid, however what about the people there that were met with violence who did not perpetrate such acts. Normal, taxpaying, working class citizens who feel actually do want to make a difference.

BTW DD, there is no point in responding to RRConservative's posts, S/he's a mouthpiece for the ultra-conservative camp and rarely makes a valid argument.

I wonder if there is a way to vote off the government loyalists who do nothing but troll and spout off bs about how the government never does anything wrong and that those who oppose it are "evil terrorists",
I'm really getting sick of the disinfo trolls, mods, can you do anything about these people? They never do anything to contribute anything worth while, they just troll along and pick fights, then when they are proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they're wrong, they result to personal attacks.
Back on topic, good find DD, bet this will never make it to the MSM, however a 10 minute broadcast about some slip up that Obama, Biden, McCain or Palin, will be airing in it's place.
Folks, we need to flood the MSM with calls about stories that are importnt to us, like this one, call them over and over, spam them with emails, let your voice be heard that we will not stand for them ignoring things that are more important that celebs and gaffs. The fact that the NWO are now celebrating there tyranny and evil that they invoke on us is almost funny, simply because it's so insane, it's not disgusting anymore, at least for me, now it's intertaining, the fact that they are rubbing the fact that they abuse the people they take an oath to protect, that they are biting the hand that feeds them, in the face of the world is so crazy, so insane, it's just makes my mind explode to think that there are still people who think that the government is God (AKA rcwj75).
And I'm done,

Wow I could not disagree with you more. Your post was full of absolutely garbage. I especially disliked your rant about how most of the protesters looked like their life consisted of "drinking" and "getting high". What are you talking about? Sure some probably do but you are generalizing. Protesters these days need to get jobs? What makes you think they don't have jobs. You are spewing generalities and attacks on a group of people you have NO CLUE about.

You do realize that law enforcement agencies use "agent provocateurs" to rile a crowd up and get them violent so they can move in with tear gas and batons, right? It worked in the 60's and its works now.
MLK didn't hide his face and he made change, the people who truly believed in change and protest didn't cover their faces, they didn't throw stuff, they didn't act like morons...they protested, made their points known the right way...and look what happend...CHANGE.
