Sheehan arrested for blocking road near Crawford
Peace activist Cindy Sheehan and four other protesters were arrested today for blocking a road near President Bush's ranch, authorities said, snagging Vice President Dick Cheney's motorcade in the backup.Sheehan is a recidivist road blocker. Should three strikes and your locked up apply to anti war pukes? It is hard to have any respect for this woman. For awhile the anti war left thought she was a convenient prop for their message, but her message was so far out of whack that they have mostly dropped her too. I would add that her latest act is more of a jail surge than a "peace" surge. When is she going to start protesting the enemy's side of the war?
Sheehan and the others lay or sat in the road about 20 minutes and didn't heed requests to move, Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. R.T. King said.
"They weren't going unless they were arrested," King told The Associated Press. He said Cheney's motorcade was among the vehicles delayed by the demonstration.
Sheehan told the Waco Tribune-Herald that she and others were conducting a "peace surge" to address concerns that Bush may increase U.S. troop numbers in Iraq. Protesters said they had expected to be arrested.
