Woman Arrested at McCain Event for "McCain=Bush" Sign | Video | AlterNet

Picture a campaign event for John McCain. The event was supposedly for the public, since he is running for public office. The 61 year-old Librarian was standing on city property, holding a sign that said "McCain=Bush." She was arrested and removed from the area because she refused to get rid of the sign.

This is America. We have a right to protest in public places. The police don't get to arrest us and drag us off for expressing an opinion - though they've been doing just that for the last 7.5 years. This is why Obama has to win. I want the rule of law back in this country, I want the authorities to operate within the bounds of the Constitution, I want people to feel free again. This incident clearly demonstrates that nothing would improve under McCain.
