Photos: Cindy & friends "scuffle with police" at Rove appearance


DeeDee Miller, sister of anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan, is knocked to the ground after being caught in the middle of a scuffle with police as they arrested Tiffany Burns during a protest outside the doors of the ballroom where President Bush's top advisor Karl Rove was speaking at an Associated Republicans of Texas dinner Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006, in Austin, Texas. Sheehan and more than 50 other war protesters ambushed the reception chanting 'Try Rove for treason.' (AP Photo/Austin American-Statesman, Rodolfo Gonzalez)

1. Great photos! Thanks!
I'm glad to see Cindy's sister showing her such support, in addition to the rest of the noble supporters.

code pink and cindy sheehan has them quivering in their small clothes.

9. That's disgusting
that the Police would treat them with such disrespect. Somebody better remind them that there is STILL such thing as the first amendment in this country, and KKKarl hasn't been able to get rid of it YET. Recently, on another thread, I mentioned that it was possible that Cindy ended up in the hospital because someone tried to poison her. While that may or may not have been the case, I hope that this shows everyone that decency and respect are not used by Rove's allies. She needs to be careful. One of these days, she'll REALLY piss them off and they could try to "disappear" her.

10. Cops beating up on women
Must do Rove's tiny little heart good. I understand he had several "humorous" things to say (his private audience laughed) about all the dead, massacred and maimed in Iraq.
