Protest Against Illegal Immigration Ends in Arrest and Chaos in Tennessee

From the story in our neighbor to the east:

"MORRISTOWN (WATE) -- A rally that was supposed to be peaceful ended with chaos Saturday afternoon outside the Hamblen County courthouse.

Things got testy for a while as police tried to stop a disabled veteran from carrying an American flag onto courthouse grounds.

Teddy Mitchell, 62, was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Police say the flag pole he carried was too sharp and they did not want him to take it onto courthouse grounds.

Organizers of the group Citizens for Legal Immigration say they had received permission to peacefully take a stand against illegal immigrants. They say they were surprised to see the overwhelming police presence when they arrived."

Thousands of illegal aliens protested in our streets last month with all kinds of stakes and poles. It is a known fact the illegal aliens did NOT get a permit at their Springdale events, yet not one arrest was made. The illegal alien rally had hundreds of flags, some U.S., but many from other nations. Conversely, when legal American citizens get the proper permits and attempt to have a disabled veteran carry ONE pole with a United States Flag on it, the disabled veteran is arrested.

The authorities will have no one but themselves to blame if they lose the respect of the people. I hope the jack-booted thugs with badges are real proud of themselves. What has happened to this country?

At the illegal alien rallies last month, even protestors who often marched without obtaining the proper permits were allowed to carry poles by the thousands while remaining unmolested by the authorities.

It's a spirit of arrogance all too common in many law enforcement agencies today.

Hey tough guys- you don't impress anyone when you arrest fellow countrymen who generally have respect for our rule of law. Why don't you show that you have some backbone by locking up some foreign invaders?

Nice touch with the Che Guevara flag. Yeah, that's one way to win support from freedom-loving Americans -- wave the flag of Castro's sidekick and fellow communist who murdered anybody who dared to disagree with their totalitarian utopia.

Say, how's that communist utopia working out down there in Cuba? I heard they all got a free rice cooker from the gov't a while back...

Ah, bliss!
