Arrest Hospitalizes Anti-War Minister

 

Rev. Lennox Yearwood was hospitalized due to injuries sustained from an arrest after being denied entry to a House hearing with General Petraeus last month. A broken ankle was sustained during a police takedown by 5-6 officers. YouTube Footages have surfaced.

He was charged with assaulting police officers, but video footages did not show any evidence of wrongdoing. The footage show the Rev. shrugging an officer's hand off his shoulder before being tackled to the ground by a gang of officers.

A spokeswoman says he has not decided whether to make a formal complaint yet. However, afterwards the Rev. stated: "Police will go so far as to jump me when I question my exclusion from a hearing that is open to the public?”

As the great Yoda said "Train yourself to let go of all your fear to lose".

The US and the UK will soon become one and the same (52nd state?). Our policies are making us hated by the rest of the world, and hated by our own populations, but as long as politics remains the domain of the rich we are screwed.

Agreed.

Interesting to see how it has all come full circle over history. Starting with the Monarch having ultimate power, then the Charter of Liberties and Magna Carta transferring power to parliament and law and rights to the people.

Now the government have gone as far as to even threaten Habeas Corpus, we're virtually back where we were all those years ago.
