Arizona Star, by Brady McCombs
A Tucson man was arrested Tuesday for his role in the burning
of a Mexican flag as part of a counterprotest at a
pro-immigration rally. At about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Tucson
police cited Roy Warden, 58, on suspicion of assault, criminal
damage and reckless burning, and then released him,
according to Sgt. Decio Hopffer.

So burning the American flag is a consitutionally protected
right but burning the Mexican flag is illegal? Just when
you think things can't get any crazier...

Maybe Arizona has strict air pollution and burning laws.

Illegal Mexicans have rights and Americns don't. That's the short of it. Believe me, it's
Bush's fault...

He also assulted two guys. That's probably the reason he was arrested.

When do we start calling it a hate crime to oppose illegal immigration?

"Warden said the charges are direct result of political pressure from the Mexican Consulate"

W're being invaded by occupying foreign nationals and the liberals want us to fall.

Fox & Bush both want the flood to continue. Bush because his Republican fatcat friends want cheap labor, and Fox because it takes pressure off the Mexican oligarchy from those who might otherwise demand the haves share with the have-nots.

Look at that - FIVE Shakeman posts in a row, followed by a clueless Loki.

What a worthwhile thread.

Followed by a typical mick e response contributing nothing to the discussion other than insults.

Out of ideas? Out of anything to contribute constructively? Out of his mind? If so have you moved from referring to yourself in the third person to self-diagnosis? You might want to get a third opinion before the voices tell you to harm mick e.

Did the smoke from the flag blow south?

Boston's channel 7 WHDH TV is running a single question poll:

''Do you support efforts to help illegal immigrants settle legally in the U.S.?''
Response?

20% Yes
80% No

Even Kennedy's constituants don't want it.

Another useless contribution from Shakey.

In crowd situations, police will often "arrest" or detain provocateurs and remove them as a means of avoiding any escalation of tension that could lead to violent reactions.

Consider the fact that the police may have been doing their job before you jump to conclusions. They may have saved this guy from a well-deserved thumping, not for his views, but for his willingness to "shout fire in a crowded theater".

These poll questions are designed to appeal to those who have no information about the issues.

Here's a question which exemplfies the silliness: Do you walk to school, or carry your lunch?

He was arrested for a variety of reasons, but burning a Mexican flag wasn't one of them.

George Bush does what George wants to do. He out in 2 years
so why should he care. He's going to help his friends as much
as possible while he's in there and that's just the way it
is. My ancestors came here legally. What part of illegal do
these people not understand? Personally I'm about sick of
the whole situation. You should live in NC where it's so
easy to get a drivers license they send bus loads from other
states here so they can get one. A friend of mine moved
here in '89 from Texas, he went to get a NC DL and had to
take a the full test, the whole deal, at the same time a
woman from Mexico was there and they accepted her DL and she
didn't have to take as many test as he did. Now there's
something wrong with that.
