On Cindy Sheehan and a Cold-hearted Cop

Cindy Sheehan was arrested this past weekend at the ANSWER march in Washington, DC. [Not well attended but ANSWER is more anti-war than pro-peace and their events do not feed my spirit -- but that is something to blog about at PeaceHugs.com one of these days.] She wrote eloquently of her experience of Civil Disobedience by the White House but her UPDATE, particularly affected me:

UPDATE: Three of us went to pick up our property this morning at the Park Police station and as we were being jacked around, an officer named Thomas (Badge number 628) told me that if I “stopped getting arrested” I wouldn’t have to go through all of this.

I said: “when the wars stop, I will stop.” He actually then told me: “The wars will stop when we nuke them and take their oil.”

I wonder why they are called “pigs.”

An upset Cindy put it differently than I would, but certainly Thomas of Badge number 628 is a disgrace and should be dismissed from the force. He dishonors the Men and Women in Blue, most of whom I want/need to believe are NOT pigs. And actually, come to think of it, PIGS are sweet and intelligent critters -- not like the disgraceful Thomas of Badge number 628.
