Fourteen Arrested in Crawford
UPDATE 6:25 PM ET: I just spoke to Cindy Sheehan and Ann Wright. Fourteen were arrested and are still being held, including Daniel Ellsberg and Dede Miller (Cindy’s sister). Cindy and Ann chose to not be arrested, and to run the camp. Seven of the 14 arrested had also been arrested for the same charge previously and have been demanding a day in court to test the law. They may all be released this evening around 6, 7,or 8 p.m. CT, on bail plus a $30 administrative fee each.
Listen to Cindy and Ann on the Peter B Collins show this evening in the 8-9 p.m. ET hour, with Brad Friedman at http://www.krxa540.com
Barbara Cummings just phoned from outside Bush’s ranch in Carwford, Texas, to say that she and about 14 others, including Cindy Sheehan, are about to be arrested for trespassing. They had set up four tents in the same location where Cindy originally was stopped last August. there is a county ordinance against trespassing. The police gave them a 10 minute warning several minutes ago. Arrests are about to happen. Updates will be posted as we can get them.
