Finally Got to See an Arrest

Barack and Michelle Obama arrived back at the Westin Hotel at 17th and Lawrence around 11 pm. There was a huge motor parade escorting them. We all had to wait at the entrance until they got an "all clear." The kid in front of me didn't seem to want to wait and ended up arrested. There were tons of police motorcycles and SUV's, using sirens to take them back. The street was lined with people and they all cheered as the Obamas drove by.

    ...that it took you so long. Maybe you want to rephrase this, since I don't think it came out as you intended.

    than others.  Why was the kid locked up?  We have no royalty in this country...a hobo has the same right to the street as the president, or a presidential candidate.

    If that puts elected officials at some risk, so be it...freedom is a risky proposition, but it is so worth it.
