A Charlotte, N.C., man says he was arrested unfairly on a traffic violation because police were worried he would organize protests during the Democratic National Convention.


Tyson's lawyer, Derek Fletcher, says a police report of the arrest claimed his client was on a terrorist watch list and should be held until the convention ends Thursday. Tyson says he's an activist with the Rainforest Action Network. He thinks he was targeted by police to stop him from organizing protests

This type of crap has gotten way out of hand under O’s watch. He has subverted the Constitution and doesn’t think it applies to His Highness; only the peasants. Remove the tyrant in November and exile him to another country.

After reading the full article it’s obvious Obama has been busy compiling lists of activists that oppose him so the local police will have a reason to jail you so you can’t protest. This is unconstitutional in nature if the protest is peaceful. This guy was arrested and jailed on the way to protest at the DNC suggesting a premeditated an pre-planned effort. I wonder how many others were arrested on the way to the convention. This should get your blood boiling if you are a true patriot:

He was an environmentalist wacko....he had it coming. These idiot "activists" need to be treated like this on GP alone.

"Asked if he was going to demonstrate during the DNC, Tyson replied: “Not now.”

Sounds like it had the intended results. This works for me. Go after the Occutards like this, too.
