LOS ANGELES, November 9, 2004 - At 7:50 PM two armored tanks showed up at an anti-war protest in front of the federal building in Westwood. The tanks circled the block twice, the second time parking themselves in the street and directly in front of the area where most of the protesters were gathered. Enraged, some of the people attempted to block the tanks, but police quickly cleared the street. The people continued to protest the presence of the tanks, but about ten minutes the tanks drove off.

I totally cannot remember where I heard this, but I did hear that there are supposedly 4000 troops getting set up for "security" at the inauguration.
Does anyone have more info on this? I'll keep digging til I find it, maybe it was National Guard and not other military, though I think Nat Guard is military enough for me if used against me when I exercise my rights
