I would permit them to rally, and then have them all tasered.

I would bring popcorn and watch.

. . . I've heard interviews with a few of the people planning some of these protests.  When they were asked if they plan to obey the law and respect the police, they never would give a straight answer.  They seemed to imply a very thinly veiled threat of possible rioting.  The muggers may want to beware if the protestors try to take over Central Park. 
If you watched the 1971 Kerry testimony on C-SPAN last night, and then didn't change the channel, you got to see a meeting where the New York Civil Liberties Union (local branch of the ACLU) met with protesters to tell them what was and wasn't allowed. The head of the meeting said that the press would be "dismissed" after about a half-hour of the meeting, and I really wonder what was discussed after the cameras were off. But what I heard was interesting. The group seemed to be encouraging protesters to be uncooperative with the police. That's nice.  :suspect:

They have been told they cannot have it in Central Park because the city just spent millions of dollars repairing it, and the grass.  

They may have it elsewhere.  They have not been told they can't assemble, just not at that location.

It'll be the Diana Ross concert all over again, and they have a right to protect their investment, especially such a  recent one, especially given all the damage that NYC has had to take the last several years.

The protesters need to stop being such brats, but since most of them are anarchists, what would you expect.  "I'll do it my way with no regard to anyone else and if I damage things, oh well"

The real story here isn't the story itself, but the lying way it was reported by the Bash the Bluddy Colonials...

Here's an evil idea.

Charge them with conspiracy to commit a terrorist act. Hual in the NYACLU as co-conspirators . Then send them to Gitmo till after the elelction.

Look I have no problem these people wanting to protest. It's their right. but to want to endanger the lives of people,and that is what disrupting the security arrangements would do, is why such harsh action should be considered.

Otherwise what should  be done if by their actions a actual bomb gets inside and kills a bunch of the atendees?

Protesting peacefully is fine. Prostestors who put gun powder on themselves to confuse police dogs are criminals in my books, and should get the book thrown at them.  :wacko:

Since when is protesting a defacto terrorist act?

I sincerely hope that it all hype and no act. Peaceful protest is one thing, and I have not a single problem with it. Turning it into riots or endangering the general public is something entirely different.

When the protestors make claims  of goign to try and disruprt gthe convention. Such as sprinkling Gunpowder on things to set the bomb sniffing dogs off. which means maybe a actual terrorist gets in with a bomb during a deliberate  disruption.


Now if as they also claim they wish to make a peaceful protest either fork over the money the city as rerquested and use Central Park or gather on the streets but understand disrupting the follow of traffic both of cars and people are grounds for arrest.
