Jill Stein Arrested at Presidential Debate, Handcuffed to Chair for 8 Hours. Officer: "Watch Flag."Submitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Fri, 10/19/2012 - 17:00
Amy Goodman's Democracy Now captures a surreal scene. Stein contention is that there should be a return to League of Women Voters criteria that "anyone who does the work to be on the ballot in enough states to win electoral vote" should be allowed to debate. As the arrest is taking place, the arresting officer can be heard professing concern for the flag Dr. Stein and her VP Cheryl Honkala are holding, and that no one step on it by accident.
This video clearly shows that Jill Stein is one gutsy and classy lady.
