US Presidential Candidate Jill Stein Arrested at Debate Site

Related: Video

[RT]: Police arrested Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Cheri Honkala, after they tried to enter the site of tonight’s presidential debate at the Hofstra University.

The two were protesting against the exclusion of all but the two major political parties from taking part in the debate.

“Jill Stein, Cheri Honkala arrested, call tonight's #debate a "mockumentary",

said a tweet posted on her account.

The presidential candidate and her vice-presidential nominee were arrested by local police when they tried to enter the grounds of Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York, Stein's campaign website says. The women are currently still in police custody.

A video posted on YouTube shows police officers ushering Stein and Honkala away after they apparently tried to stage a sit-in.

always plan for bail

... my fellow liberty activists. If you want to get the "judicial morass immersion experience" then God bless you! Just ask all the obvious huge questions in an honest and forthright manner.

They hate that !!!!

Bail is typically 10% to 15% of the amount your judge declares. If your bail is $20,000 then here in Summit County Colorado you'll need to produce roughly $2,000 to walk. Plan accordingly my dear liberty insurgents!

Alternatively, you can embrace the full incarceration tour.

You get out of it what you put into it . . .

are you talking about bail bonds?

I am familiar with that

I would assume that if I attempted to walk

into the debate hall, I would have gotten arrested too? You can't just walk in off the street into a presidential debate. I'm sure you have to get a ticket ahead of time. The debate was set up townhall-style, so, there wasn't much seating anyway. Anyway, I'm sure Ms. Stein will get the Occupy Wall Street vote. LOL!

wake up America

... you haven't had a democracy for several decades now . . . . .

America is not a democracy!!!!

Never has been, and hopefully never will be. If you check this searchable copy of the Constitution:
http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html
You'll find no mention of "democratic." "Republic," however, is mentioned at least twice.

We need checks and balances against the mobocracy just as much as we need checks and balances against the power-mongers.

Democracy: "Let's all vote on what everybody's favorite color is!"

Feh.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Yeah, wake up America

Why are other presidential candidates not allowed to participate? Can anyone say, "two party dupe"? If anything this country is totally DUPED!

Do not assume establishment party officials who say all the right things about conservative principles will do anything differently. This is the battle. Individual liberty demands personal responsibility. - Debra Medina

We never had a democracy. We're a Constitutional republic.

I think it more like Oligarchy.

Bravo

We need a second party!!

Debbie

We once had two parties.

That was before the Progressive Era. During the 1890s and early 1900s, the Progressives, after failing to control the Republican Party, began concentrating their efforts on the Democratic Party. By the time the Depression hit, they had completely taken over academia and had their people conveniently spread out throughout the media. From then on we've essentially been a two-party system because over 75% of the America public is Progressive to some extent.

If we're ever going to get a non-progressive party to challenge to two-party system, we're going to have to change public opinion.

Quoting RP. Nice!

When peaceful avenues for political change are blocked

then violent means become more probable.

if, not?

Shouldn't that be, "if not,"

mockumentary indeed.

October 23 Third Party Debate.

Same Thing Happened Before

Michael Badnarik was also arrested when he tried to crash the debate. Zero news coverage.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Our one party system will go to any lengths to silence

dissenting voices. Tonight we have another one-sided debate devoid of any talk of real problems or viable solutions.

Gosh, if this was happening in "those third world" nations,

madame Hillary will be lecturing about how a democratic country should be run. . . and she might even offer to send USA troops to help them practice DEMOCRACY by allowing all presidential candidates to participate. We want our purple fingers to get to choose from a full range of candidates!

Civil disobedience

Even if this is unlike when Nader was blocked entry to a debate a few years ago despite actually having a legit pass and these two did not tickets/passes/whatever, it's still commendable. Sort of similar to the civil rights movement with civil disobedience...if they won't serve you in the diner, go in until either they do or the rest of the world sees what is going on.

PS - It may be important to note to the people who immediately jump on my referencing the civil rights act, I do NOT believe a business should be forced to serve everyone who comes in. I do believe, however, that every debate should include everyone on a majority or 3/5 of state ballots (assuming they meet prez eligibility requirement for age, citizenship, etc).

Good for them to bring

Good for them to bring publicity to the circle jerk going on inside.

I wish GJ was there with her arrested to show the two-party police state tyranny for all to see.
