My dear we are one of the most corrupted nations in the world and people think this is the nation of mild and honey, still our government doesn't even regard the people as humans when using their own twisted technology on us.

This is untrue. I have personally been arrested / detained at multiple events for walking down the street with a sign in my hand. When there are 1000 people at a protest and 5 guys come in and start throwing punches at the cops everyone has to pay the price, not just the people who acted unruly. It gives the cops the go ahead to start with the gas and the arresting and anyone who doesn't understand that is fooling themselves. To say everyone who gets arrested at a protest was acting unruly is foolish at best. Therefore to say everyone who ends up in the cage at a protest deserved it, is foolish as well.

The whole thought line of "Don't do anything bad and you won't have to face the punishment" is very irresponsible and wrong and the main reason the world is in the place it is in today. I agree we should follow the follow the law and not be savage animals in most situations, however giving the government / military / police the authority to use weapons, standards, or punishments that are too extreme is wrong. It goes back to that time tested powerful saying...

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.

If we allow the government to have these powers when they're done using them on the "enemies" they will eventually be used on those not originally considered enemies. Just the possibility that they could should be enough to get people to see it's wrong.

I agree... I think this is a big deal and a perfect example of the government KNOWING it can do whatever it wants when it comes to controlling it's population.


Blehhhhh, you people, tick me off at times. If you don't do anything wrong at a large event, you don't have to worry about being in one of these cages, which is an updated version of paddy wagon's, as someone mentioned.

If you become unruly at a public event, would you prefer a limousine with a fully stocked bar?

Some people deserve to be in cages at times.

Sorta like how they treated the protesters at the G20 in Pittsburgh??

Good grief!

So, out of a 1,000 people, and your are in the mix, the police are supposed to know exactly who the trouble makers are? How do they know you are not going to join in the fray with the 5 trouble makers? Perhaps, you should not be walking down the street with a sign in your hand, but be in a stationary position away from the trouble makers. The police are only trying to do their job. If the trouble makers come to your location, move your sign to some place else.

Ok, so are you saying the police should just stop and try to figure out who is a good guy in the middle of mayhem, where their lives are on the line? Get real, they are human too, and fear for their lives also. Plus, they are trained to react to explosive situations. If you are in the way, well, that is your fault. Why won't you just let them do their jobs? They have a mission, as well as protesters. It isn't their fault that some jerk messes it up for everybody else.

No, I am not talking about a protest rally. I am talking about sport events, concerts, rodeos, car races, etc. If you participate in a protest, well, then, you are up for grabs. Take it from me, I have protested a lot in my years on earth.

Oh really? Hmmmm, let me think. I was a Viet Nam war protester, and an anti Nixon protester. I was around for the arrest and trial of the Chicago 7. Need I say more? This is nothing new. It is a means of crowd control, where unfortunately, people doing nothing wrong get caught up in.


First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;

Blah, blah, blah......try this out on somebody who hasn't been around the block, dozens of times or so.

I never said that. Part of protesting is knowing that will happen. What I am saying is that not everyone who is arrested is guilty in response to your comment about not doing anything wrong and I won't have to worry about it. That makes your argument a moot point. My main thing is it's a big safety hazard at ANY even to have humans locked in a cage in public due to the very bad things that can happen.

...and I by no means am a Obama or Bush supporter. When you have the potential to harm a innocent civilian it should be avoided at all cost. Otherwise we could just shoot all the "criminals" in the knee caps to keep them in line. There has to be some sense used and in this case, I see the potential for some very bad things that could happen to the people in the cages.

Then what the hell are you even whining about? It is as simple as being in the wrong place at the right time.

How is my point moot, based on what you said above? Part of being involved in a protest, along with people who don't have the same ideals and goals as you, is the possibility of arrest. You said it, I didn't.


My main thing is it's a big safety hazard at ANY even to have humans locked in a cage in public due to the very bad things that can happen.


Then do your protests on the sly, organized in secret, getting your point across before the cages are even delivered. If you aren't a drunken fool at any other type of event, you don't have anything to worry about.

I understand what you're saying. I agree that if you are speeding, or if you kill someone, or anything that is against the "sane / reasonable" laws there should be reasonable consequences dependent on the severity of the offense. All I am saying is that there are better ways to handle people than locking them in a cage in public because of the potential danger involved.

I'm not going to avoid protesting the way I think is right because I'm afraid of being arrested or detained. I think even those who are "guilty" should not be placed in a cage at a public event. You have yet to address the fact that the whole point of my initial post was that it is too dangerous of a way to detain people at any public event.

Your point is moot because I didn't say I shouldn't be arrested for protesting, I am saying that innocent people sometimes get lumped in while not breaking the law and weather innocent or guilty, this is not an acceptable form of detainment. You said don't do anything wrong and I don't have to worry about it. So if anyone can be mistakenly detained for whatever circumstance outside of my argument it's moot and because the whole point of my post was that it's dangerous even if you are guilty, it's still moot.

I'm not arguing weather innocent people should be arrested or not, I'm arguing the punishment, that's all.

A friend of mine once told me of secret jails that are inside or underneath most major sports stadiums, as apparently once he was thrown in some dungeon with bars beneath the floor while at a public event.

Of course there will always be people who can't control their behavior and thus need to be detained briefly for the safety of others.

I've seen drunks escorted out of ball games, but I always assumed that they just kick them out which considering the cost of entry, is often punishment enough.

In the U.S. today though we seem a bit obsessed with punishment and security at some events go a bit overbore.

Not only are we servants, but we have fellow servants like trained rats who get bribed in the form of a paycheck to put us and keep us in those cages. The elites laugh at them and the rest of us can't stand them for they are traitors who'd sell out their own people for a paycheck just like the NAZI prison guards sent people to the gas chamber.

I'm not afraid of the elites, I'm afraid of the people amongst us who will betray us all for a bribe.
