Crazy Protesters!!

The RNC is in town.

Yesterday, there was a small group of protesters that broke off the main group and became violent. They smashed windows at Macy's (why? why? oh for the love of everything holy, why damage our only downtown department store?), slashed tires, started a dumpster on fire, and injured some of the delegates. One 80-year-old man was treated for injuries. What is wrong with people? That is somebody's grandfather.

Then they want to cry that the police used excessive force. WHATEVER! People like that drive me crazy. They wanna run around howling about their right to freedom of speech, but become the oppressors when others have a different opinion.

The RNC Welcoming Committee wants to disrupt not only the convention and the delegates, but also the everyday people who live and work here. They have threatened to block key intersections, bridges, and other targets; including, buses, hotel and airport shuttles.

Anyway, enough of my rant. Here are some pictures of what is going on here.
