From Cindy Sheehan's post on GSFP's website:
As I lie here in bed recuperating from the injuries that I received from a federal agent and the NYPD in front of the US Mission to the UN (USUN) the other day, I have had time to reflect on the experience, the state of our union and its descent into a fascist state.
When the four of us. Missy Beattie, Rev. Patricia Ackerman, Medea Benjamin, and I, were arrested the other day, I was singled out for federal police brutality. The other three ladies were picked up, noth gingerly, though, and I was dragged across the pavement and treated very, very roughly—having both arms wrenched out from beneath me. I looked to my doctor as if I had been beaten. My daughter, Janey, asked if I had been resisting arrest, I told her if one considers going into a fetal position and saying, "Please don't hurt me anymore!" resisting, then I guess I was.
Now compare that description to the picture of the event as it was taking place:
Brutalized? Try elated.
At least I can respect the anti-war friends I have. This lady, as sorry as I am for her loss, makes Congress seem ethical in comparison. Perhaps she's truly lost her mind. Under the circumstances, I wouldn't hold it against her. But sheesh.
