rhokeral enough of us have been intimidated during RP sign waves

I watched my best friend's son 14 years old have his RP sign stolen by an Iowa State Police officer.

He was not standing in the roadway and not hindering traffic in any way.

I was about 50 feet from this little boy and the cop was about to cuff him and take him to jail if I had not run over and stepped in to claim him for my friend.

The boy was doing NOTHING MORE than waving a sign on a 30 MPH road outside the Iowa Straw Poll.

When I approached the officer told me he had stopped because the boy was a danger to himself. WTF! The officer was pissed and grabbed the boys sign and drove off!!!

That is just one incident... Do you want to hear more?

By the way that happened in 2007 and that little boy is all grown up now and he was a RP delegate to the Texas State Convention this year 2012.
