This part of there Duty. I suggest you do some more reading on the subject. Start with US Code 18 section 831.
    In both cases, it's really legitimized by color of law...

    Seriously, you're saying that Obama's security is not acting under 'federal' control??

    Of course, it was the police trained to ask for national guard for anything... jaws of life at car wrecks and other 'reasonable' uses of the guard.

    YouTube - Arrest at G20 Demonstrations, September 24, 2009

    If you don't see a problem in this situation... wow.

    It was one thing having national guard out in the open in armoured vehicles and all... but now we add unmarked cars as well...Given the atmosphere... I won't be surprised that those people being arrested in such a way will be charged under 'patriot act' somehow, and never be heard from again.

    After all, since you're so fond of the legalities... are you fond of the idea that it's been determined that protest is 'low-level' terrorism.

    Like I said earlier... this is the official demise of the first amendment in america.

    I eagerly await the hypocritical displays of blind partisan hackery that are destined to come to this thread.

    I seriously had no idea anarchists were considered to be left-wing. I though they were their own little universe of crazy.

    The groups involved clearly expressed their desire to attack and/or shut down the meetings. There's a reason that the military feels they are under attack.

    There is a huge difference between infiltrating to collect intelligence on groups that have a history of engaging in criminal acts, and being "agent provocateurs," which is what you're alleging.

    Nope. These are your wacko animal rights and environmental activists. They're the lefties.

    That wasn't the military. They haven't worn those uniforms in years.

    It was confirmed that this was police in military gear, and they were getting the kid for vandalism.

    Police in military gear = military grade police?

    These G-# summits should be held in a country with a real dictator in power.

    Then lets see if the anarcho-communists have any balls.
