Police Arrest Minneapolis Protesters (Updated)
[Guest post by DRJ]
The Star-Tribune reports Minneapolis police raided Republican National Convention protest groups and arrested five members, charging them as a criminal enterprise that planned criminal acts to “welcome” conventioneers:
“In a statement Saturday morning, Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher said the St. Paul raid targeted the RNC Welcoming Committee, a group he described as “a criminal enterprise made up of 35 self-described anarchists…intent on committing criminal acts before and during the Republican National Convention.”
“These acts include tactics to blockade and disable delegate buses, breaching venue security and injuring police officers,” Fletcher said. Deputies seized a variety of items that they believed were tools of civil disobedience: a gas mask, bolt cutters, axes, slingshots, homemade “caltrops” for disabling buses, even buckets of urine.”
Protesters claimed the police action was preventive detention and likened it to terrorism. They vowed they would not be intimidated. The raids were also condemned by City Councilman Dave Thune:
“I’m really ticked off…the city is perfectly capable of taking care of things,” Thune said. “If they had found anything that could have been used to commit a crime they would have arrested somebody.”
“Unless they come up with anthrax or weapons of mass destruction, I think they [the police] came up short.”
I try to be open-minded but anarchists don’t do much for me. Neither does this city councilman.
UPDATE: Here’s a link to a Pioneer Press article that has more details on these arrests. H/T htom.
Every time I hear about anarchists having meetings and making plans and getting organized, it makes me wonder if they really understand what they are doing.Steven Den Beste (99cfa1) — 8/30/2008 @ 4:11 pm
Self-described “anarchists.” Yawn. Has there been a more predictable, one-dimensional gang of spoiled little miscreants in the past how many years? They all wear the same costume, they all travel with mangy dogs, they all live in “spaces” near colleges, they all smell…BO-RING!!!! Somehow I have the feeling that none of these kids read Murray Rothbard or Emma Goldman but that their philosophical depth consists of how pissed off they still are at their parents.Cracker Jack Sprat Klompus (b0e238) — 8/30/2008 @ 4:16 pm
Welcome to the Republican Police State, boys and girls.David Ehrenstein (1d6679) — 8/30/2008 @ 4:26 pm
Based on the short article, I’d give the cops mixed grades. The raid on the anarchists with bolt cutters, caltrops, other weapons, and urine (eww) seems solid, and if they have enough in terms of written plans or informer testimony to prove intent and thus conspiracy there should be charges and prosecution. Even if there isn’t enough to sustain a prosecution, I don’t have problems with this raid because the physical evidence is enough in my mind to support a raid to at least find out what was going on.
But this is troubling: “On Saturday afternoon, law agents surrounded 951 Iglehart Av. in St. Paul where members of I-Witness Video, a New York-based group that monitors police conduct during protests, were staying. They were detained and handcuffed but eventually freed without charges.” That strikes me as intimidation against a group planning a perfectly legal and valuable action (good to have police and protester clashes on tape to show excesses on either side and to disprove false claims of excesses on either side). I’d like to know who made the decision for that raid based on what information, and what they actually found that caused them first to detain and handcuff everyone, but then let them go.Aplomb (b6fba6) — 8/30/2008 @ 4:34 pm

Minneapolis is the Hennepin county seat; it is not St. Paul, which is the Ramsey county seat, Minnesota’s capital city, and where the Republican National Convention is.) The Star-Tribune is a Minneapolis paper, the Pioneer Press is a St. Paul paper (and has a better story that shows the Minneapolis connection.)

As an old Cold-Warrior, I am very suspicious of anyone who is represented by the NLG. Not a group with the best of intentions, as I remember it.
We have reached the point where the hands of the law is tied. Nuts can threaten people’s lives and that’s not considered enough to get them off the street. Personal experience. My neice was threatened with death by an x boyfriend, restraining orders are a joke so he gunned her down last thursday and then killed himself. Failure of current ‘liberal democrat’ laws is responsible for the two deaths and the destruction of two families. The only way to stop someone today is to take the law in your own hands and kill the nuts before they carry out their threats.Scrapiron (c36902) — 8/30/2008 @ 5:43 pm
Violent Protestors are simply home grown terrorists, no different than radical Islam, so 25 years in prison might mellow them out.
From the story:
Members of various protest groups targeted in last night’s raid held a press conference today to express their anger and frustration.
The raid was an effort to “derail RNC protest organizing efforts and to intimidate and terrorize individuals and groups converging in the Twin Cities to exercise what are supposed to be their basic civil rights,” RNC Welcoming Committee member Tony Jones read from a statement
Wow, they actually held a press conference. And apparently none of the press asked the obvious question:
“So what were you going to do with all that urine?”Phil (3b1633) — 8/30/2008 @ 5:48 pm

Criminal law question to the prosecutors out there, how did the warrant linked by the Pioneer Press article look to you? It was surely incomplete (it didn’t have the pages with the signatures of the officers or the judge’s signature and order) but isn’t there usually some language tying in all those suspected pieces of evidence to a particular suspected crime? It seemed to jump from a list of items pretty much anyone would have in their homes (except perhaps for urine, certain literature about making homemade weapons, and “hollow puppets”) to a list of five alleged crimes, one of which was crossed out and three others seemingly unsupported by the evidence. (Those alleging that the items were in themselves illegal, or have been used to commit crimes, as opposed to being suspected tied to a conspiracy to commit future crimes, seemed like overreach.)
Wish they showed the whole warrant because it seems kind of weak to me. Fact that it was photos of someone holding it rather than a document or pdf makes me believe the photos came from one of those served with a hard copy, and I wonder what the other pages show.Aplomb (b6fba6) — 8/30/2008 @ 6:03 pm
Aplomb, as far as I can tell, this isn’t the probable cause affidavit. That’ll be where the actual facts supporting the request for the warrant are alleged.Phil (3b1633) — 8/30/2008 @ 6:10 pm

Governors may shoot wolves from helicopters, sell all her states’ natural wealth to the oil companies (read Republicans), and even become a candidate for the Vice Presidency , acts not mentioned by the Constitution however citizens exercising their right for free assembly and free speech are immediately hounded by an overzealous police force. Boring, stinky or not, it is their right. Psychopathic individuals are allowed to walk around armed to the teeth with any sort of firearm obtainable in most states -it’s their constitutional right-however, to sit down and talk is obviously a very much greater threat in Minnesota, demanding immediate intervention. And then you ask why are there anarchists wandering around?
From the story: “Deputies seized a variety of items that they believed were tools of civil disobedience: a gas mask, bolt cutters, axes, slingshots, homemade “caltrops” for disabling buses, even buckets of urine.”
From Wikipedia: “Civil disobedience is the active refusal to obey certain laws, demands and commands of a government, or of an occupying power, without resorting to physical violence.”
These actually appear to be the tools of criminal disobedience.KRB (b93484) — 8/31/2008 @ 5:45 am

Since when are buckets of urine Constitutionally protected free speech?!
I’m giving a big thumbs-up to this — the “anarchists” routinely threaten violence, try to provoke violence, damage property, and interfere with the legitimate exercise of free speech. If they want to peacefully protest, no problem. But they’ve shown repeatedly that’s not their intention.Rob Crawford (b5d1c2) — 8/31/2008 @ 8:20 am

Thanks, DRJ. Linking to a particular story at either of the major twin cities papers is a pain, at best.

Comment #31 (Miki) So you do pay the outrageous property taxes in town? LOL, but that aside what you have written is just junk,
making and using devices to hurt others that have not threatened you is a crime.Violence is not a first amendment right.
There are no Psychopathic individuals allowed to get a permit to carry,let alone buy a gun. Gun control act 1968.
Also wolves are considered a problem up here, they attack cows and dogs.
So foot-spikes and urine, what if some were badly hurt,maybe someone with a compromised immune system died?
Would that be ok as long as you got your way? Chemical warfare is the new protest sign?
So you protest the bombing of innocent women and children by bombing innocent women and children?
I can see it now:“Stop Bush, It’s our job as anarchists to kill and maim not his!”</I. .
Here’s a problem with the news coverage of this I’ve seen so far: There’s no differentiation between the different groups of protesters. Apparently there was more than one raid, and the photos of all of the criminal-looking stuff comes from one particular raid out of several.
It looks like the various other groups that were raided, where the protesters apparently had nothing to hide and weren’t planning to do anything violent, are protesting the fact that THEY were raided, not that the anarchists were raided. Apparently, also, at least one building where a group of non-violent protesters were staying was closed down and boarded up, leaving them with nowhere to stay.
The news coverage is doing a horrible job of separating the anarchists from everyone else, and making it hard for us to tell whether the police action here was all as justified as the raid on the anarchists seems to be.Phil (3b1633) — 8/31/2008 @ 9:52 am
Did the anarchists have something to hide? If it was going to be a peaceful protest, why wouldn’t they welcome the police into the house to take a look around? You know, in teh spirit of COOPERATION!!!!11!eleventy!!!11daleyrocks (d9ec17) — 8/31/2008 @ 9:57 am
As usual, things are complicated. Part of what went on is clearly good, proactive law enforcement: the “RNC Welcoming Committee” is a conglomeration of anarchists looking to disrupt the RNC by means fair and foul; there was apparently more than enough PC to get some warrants, and not a lot of good explanations for caltrops and buckets of urine — which don’t, err, pass the smell test.
But . . . as the lefties have been pointing out, accurately, there’s also been preemptive seizing of cameras to prevent filming of what’s going on (and, in fact, some of the local lefties are in court to get a restraining order on that) and the widespread raids (at least six of them, as of the moment) have been scooping up muffin heading peace types as well as the caltrop and urine throwers.
Part of the motivation is locally political: Bob Fletcher, the RamseyCo Sheriff and the major power behind this sweep, suffered some major political embarrassment when two of his closest associates and friends were convicted in Federal court of stealing money in an FBI sting, and if his office is limiting itself to good, proactive law enforcement in this — rather than pushing things as far as they think that they can — that’d be a man bites dog story.
Pay attention to the details. The local authorities will keep pointing to the legitimate part of the operation and the illegitimate actions of some of the Welcoming Committee types; the real issue is what else is going on, and from this remove, it doesn’t look good.Joel Rosenberg (677e59) — 8/31/2008 @ 10:33 am
Obviously if the police overstep the law, that needs to be dealt with. However, I’m glad someone’s finally cracked down on the “Black Bloc” crowd.Rob Crawford (b5d1c2) — 8/31/2008 @ 10:40 am
I agree that it needs to be dealt with; as to whether or not it will be, one hint: it took four years from two of the sheriff’s close associates being caught on tape by the FBI stealing money to them being brought to trial. It’s a fair guess that there won’t be much of any rush to slap down overreaching by the RamseyCo Sheriffs Office in this.Joel Rosenberg (677e59) — 8/31/2008 @ 11:01 am

The San Francisco Chronicle reported this on Saturday, August 31.
The story was published on page A-17, author Joe Garofoli (Chronicle Staff Writer), bylined from St. Paul.
The story, which is also online, mentions that the police seized laptops and pamphlets. It does not mention:
“a gas mask, bolt cutters, axes, slingshots, homemade “caltrops” for disabling buses, [or] buckets of urine”

The focus on urine is a distraction – there have been a number of unnecessary arrests at this event by people whose intent was only to express their constitutional right to free speech and assembly. Some when told to disperse attempted to do so but were gassed in the process.
