Police State: Secret Service Shuts Down Anti-Holder Protest

Posted by on Jul 02, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Remember when protesting was popular? Yeah, good times. Well, now a small group protests the thug Eric Holder and gets shut down.

America: A nice concept while it lasted.

U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.

After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

According to the Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle, this “suspicious package” bit is nonsense.

    Those guys are so full of crap.

    One of my teachers in high school (in the 70s) was an ex-policeman, and he even mentioned the use of dubious tactics way back then in order to arrest and detain people. Claiming the presence of a “suspicious” package is right up that unethical alley; dispersing people exercising their freedom of speech by asserting that some sort of physical danger exists.
