Amid final preparations for the Democratic National Convention, security officials are preparing to lock down a huge area of Boston. But groups planning protests say the right to free speech has been sacrificed to the need for security. "We think the the city of Boston has gone way overboard in the name of security," a protest leader said.
Actually kind of funny once you think about it. When you think about who will be protesting (Republicans, Bush Supporters, etc.) and you think about thier political standing, especially with the Patriot Act, and how some of them want to postpone elections if there is a terrorist attack (*MAJOR* constitutional violation) it is funny that they are complaining. I suppose, well, they might think like this:
Since it doesn't effect us, we're fine with it, wait a minute, these security efforts will effect us? No, No, can't have that.
How much you want to bet that when it happens in New York for the RNC next month, they will be all fine with it?
