Picture of the Week

The Purple Clouds Were Made for Dancing

This picture was taken in St. Paul, Minnesota were the Republican National Convention is currently underway. There have been approximately 10,000 protesters during the convention thus far, with about 250 being arrested for various crimes like trespassing, vandlization and assualt.

Odd that a ‘peaceful’ protest against the war turned into a series of mob-like events. For example, a flaming dumpster was sent careening towards a police car that had people in it. People that do things like that really take away from the real heart of the matter.

    So much for peace with that type of display. As you said it really is terrible. Besides it just makes everyone upset on both sides. How is that making a good statement for having their voices heard with reason. Great capture of the excitement.
