Sheehan got busted. Is the MSM covering this?
Friday, December 29, 2006

By Erin Quinn

Tribune-Herald staff writer

CRAWFORD Minutes before the Peace Mom was arrested Thursday for blocking a road near President Bushs ranch, Cindy Sheehan said she plans to become more confrontational and that its time to ramp up peace efforts.

Were the only people that can stop Bush now, she said, standing with about 30 other peace protesters at a barricaded Secret Service checkpoint outside the Crawford-area ranch.

Bush was meeting with top advisers to consider strategy in the Iraq war, including a possible surge in troop levels.

About 20 minutes after talking about her new plan, called a peace surge as a poke at Bush, Sheehan, 49, and four other protesters lay down in front of Secret Service barricades and refused to move. Texas Department of Public Safety troopers carried each one off the roadway and to a ditch along the side of the road their hands tied with flexible nylon ties, a gentler handcuff police often use during protests.

It was Sheehans first arrest at the Bush ranch in McLennan County.

5. It certainly is local news.
I was just wondering if it had made national news.
