"WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Anti-war mother Cindy Sheehan, who led protests outside President Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch this summer, was arrested outside the White House.
Sheehan, 48, was among about a dozen protestors hauled away after they refused to end non-violent civil disobedience against the war in Iraq. Forty-one people protesting the war were arrested at the Pentagon earlier Monday on the third day of anti-war demonstration in the nation's capital, the Los Angeles Times reported."

Apparently it is illegal to loiter on the sidewalk in front of the White House; making this a popular way of getting arrested by D.C. police and becoming a martyr for whatever cause is trendy that day. This is not "fascism" nor is it a "police state", she knowingly and intentionally ignored the polite requests of the police officers to move along, she violated the law and now she will be punished. Personally, I hope they tack on stalking charges. The police requested three (3) times that she move, she refused and so they arrested her and her coterie.
