Aren't the convention security measures dictated by Homeland Security?
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 09:50 PM by MikeG
Why isn't that being reported?

Is the Repug Convention in New York going to be any different?

1. Security will be tight in NYC ...

But so far, I haven't seen any "internment camps"

On edit: Judge rules NYC can't use "pens" to contain protesters and the police can't randomly search people's bags. I know the "bag search" ruling is being challenged in a higher court, but I don't know if the "pen" ruling is, too.

2. Yes
And the reason it isn't being reported...
because the corpowhore newscrews aren't interested in the facts, just propaganda, entertainment and propping up the chimp so it stays a horse race, thereby justifying their stupidity. they swim upstream.

and GOP convention in New York? It'll be different, more draconian (but the security measures will be 'justified', because after all, 911 911 911!), lies and liars wall to wall.
