New Yorkers: Take Back Our Streets

It's ironic that protesters from Seattle are yelling at NYPD officers to "go home".
I spoke with a delegate from Iowa on Tuesday. He told me another delegate from his state was out with his son and came across some protesters. One of the protesters asked if they supported Bush, the delegate said he did. Because he had a different opinion, the protester dumped water on the man and his son. Other delegates have been pushed and spit on. One man, whose only crime was that he was wearing a suit, was yelled at and pushed because the mob thought he was a delegate. He had a job, unlike most of the crowd, and wanted to get home.

A word to the law-breaking protesters. You have injured our police officers, driven off tourists, snarled traffic, filled our jails, prevented ambulances from getting to their calls, and exposed yourself for the losers which you are. Get out of our city and go back to where you came from. I hear Boston is nice this time of year.

I told the man from Iowa that a New Yorker did not pour water on that man and his kid. That's because New Yorkers are all out of town this week.
