NYPD Unplugs Cindy Sheehan

A crowd of about 150 people had gathered in Union Square on Monday to hear Cindy Sheehan speak. But, something else happened. The police rushed the podium where she was speaking. They were there to drag away Paul Zulkowitz, an organizer with the 'Camp Casey NYC', which was set up about a month ago. Problem though, Zulkowitz failed to get a sound permit.

Moments earlier, Zulkowitz had been chastising Parks officials for refusing to grant a permit to the encampment, and accusing the police of trying to harass the antiwar protest away. Contrasting the liberal Big Apple with the hostile environs Sheehan faced in Crawford, Zulkowitz told the crowd: "You would think that here in New York City, at Union Square—our Hyde Park—you would think that we would little difficulty having a 24-hour vigil to oppose the war. In fact, we've had two arrests and eight summonses and endless harassment from the police for doing what we do."

My question is this: Just WHAT do they do, rather than inciting people to rally with her against the war in Iraq, the President, or anything else Cindy Sheehan thinks warrants attention! This is a woman who calls the terrorists killing Americans "freedom fighters". She called for the U.S. to 'pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans'.
George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power.

Cindy Sheehan is still on her bus tour across the U.S. in support of her cause. Evidentally, she's lost sight of the loss of a son.
