Arrests at the Capitol

Allison Klein reports:

Dozens of protesters were arrested after they climbed over a waist-high metal fence officers had errected at the base of the Capitol.

Cheered on by the crowd, more demonstrators were leaping over the fence every few minutes late this afternoon and were being taken into custody.

It's good to see that the fascists have shown up in this comment thread. Send the protesters to Gitmo? Beat them up for civil disobedience? And you guys are the pro-freedom side?

They're the dead-enders who have yet to realize they need to put their engines in reverse if they're to have any hope of getting out of this dead-end alley/
