Witnesses said Bush supporters were on one side of California Street chanting [color:green]LIKE JONESTOWN CHILDREN PERHAPS?! </font color=green>"Four more years," and supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry were on the other chanting "Three more weeks." [color:red]BECAUSE THAT'S ALL THE TIME PERMITTED TO CONTINUE to LIE. </font color=red>Police began moving the crowd away from the Jacksonville Inn, where the president was to arrive for dinner and to spend the night following a speech FOR DUMB AND DUMBER INC.. "We were here to protest Bush and show our support for Kerry," said Cerridewen Bunten, 24, a college student and retail clerk. "Nobody was being violent. We were out of the streets so cars could go by. We were being loud, but I never knew that was against the law." Bunten said she was pushed by police as she held her 6-year-old daughter.

Jacksonville City Administrator Paul Wyntergreen said the protest was peaceful until a few people started pushing police. Police reacted by firing pepperballs, which he described as projectiles like a paintball filled with cayenne pepper. Two people were arrested for failing to disperse. There were no reports of injuries. Protester Richard Swaney, 65, of Central Point, said he was walking with the crowd away from the inn when he was hit in the back with three separate bursts, one of which knocked him down.<br>6666666666<br>Does anyone see an end to this poison?<br>Just because it takes over the TV does not mean it's good.<br>Just because tyranny has a palatability in some institutions and monopolizing out of control and lacking wisdom or foresight..well.. if groups keep bumping heads out of the socalled mainstream life I see many ho'humming into... so be it.<br>Cool with me, cool with 'smart' folk, active, THINKING people!<br>Cuz we have the right to give em' all the negativity he's givin' us!<br>Peacefully as we grow, violence being all his kind know, sure to fail from predictability, lack of COMMON SENSE, planning, imagination and all those other human rights.<br><br>Cracks me up, perhaps the automatic weapons ban makes the cops safer too!<br>HELOOOHHHHH, ANYBODY THERE? ANYBODY FROM THE YEAR 2000 human, being? You can only police the people as much as they wanna be policed so I've heard. It's another thing perhaps when these crusty old white folk, namely cops, eat their own. Through violence, the old KKK technique. Perhaps KRSONE is truly a king of kings then...

My first experience with tear gas was during the 1968 election, when a bunch of us were peacefully demonstrating against Tricky Dicky in Harrisburg, PA. Teh gas canisters lobbed at us for no apparent reason. My second experience with tear gas was during that same election cycle, when a bunchof us were peacefully demonstrating against George Wallace (before he was shot, of course), again in Harrisburg, PA. I learned that elections are not about demonstrating, I guess <br><br>
