Secret Service Arrests Man During DNC Protests
Secret Service Arrests Man During DNC Protests

1 minute ago


With security tensions high as the Democratic National Convention kicks off, Secret Service officers wasted no time arresting a protester with a Middle-Eastern appearance during pre-convention demonstrations Sunday.


NewsCenter 5's Sonya Pfeiffer reported that anti-war and other protest groups marched from the Boston Common to the FleetCenter without incident until the Secret Service pulled the unidentified, bearded man out of the crowd while protesters shouted, "This is racist profiling. Let him go." When he refused to give his name, officers detained him until he agreed to let them photograph him.


"We have assurances that if he gives a photograph, which -- he's not waiving his rights -- but if he gives a photograph then he'll walk out of here with us," said John Pavlos, another activist who said he was acting as the arrested man's attorney.


"The Secret Service (news - web sites) was pretty clear that they observed him looking around. And I just want to say that, as you can see ... there were many people looking around down there. Why didn't they stop me? I had no credentials either," said Pavlos.
