    U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) arrested 74 people in wheelchairs

    This was posted in another group. I don't know if anyone had posted it here but I thought I would......

    U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) arrested 74 people in wheelchairs on Capitol Hill Monday, charging them with unlawful assembly.

    USCP Sergeant Kimberly Schneider confirmed the arrests, adding that they took place on the House side of the Capitol. Schneider added that the arrestees belonged to ADAPT, a group that supports funding for in-home care.

    Here's the link to the rest of the story....

    This group knows the drill. ABATE is not novices. No permit = arrests, press, and increased awareness. It was intentional. Bet they had lawyers and bail money on standby.

    I actually love these people...

    The security around the Capitol doesn't mess around they almost wouldn't let cub bring me into his office because we hadn't entered from the House side of the building!

    I wonder how long they were in jail.
