Police, Crowd Control and the Protests

Posted on 30 November 2008 by admin

Kevin Miniter, who was arrested in the widely seen footage during the initial Prop 8 protest march the day following the election, has spoken to the Washington Blade to recount his story.

I have to admit that while protesting, I wondered what might happen if I were to be arrested. Not surprisingly, Kevin makes it pretty clear that it wasn’t pleasant. ┬áIn the end, they released him after 2 days, presumably without charges. But he was released with bruising and bleeding resulting from a questionable use of force when subduing him. Seems to be that they were using him as an example to keep the rest of the crowd back. The video below shows the event.

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
