LoL .. One can be arrested for nearly anything today so I wouldn't be ashamed to be of the 1000 in that jail. My prayer is that 100,000 to a 1,000,000 protesters flood Tampa and create chaos in the city. No, I don't condone violence for the sake of violence, but chaos could be used to create diversions, etc. Personally, I'd LOVE to see 100,000+ protesters roar (wear earplugs) with such intensity that the whole convention would grind to a halt. We're FAR past the point of niceties in this country as thugs run roughshod over the US Constitution as a police state is erected. I wonder how George Washington's peers felt about his tactics? ;)
As far as the delegates, just do the job that you were ELECTED to do as best that you can under the circumstances. I, too, agree that you should stay away from any acts of violence as your delegations represent your states.
As far as the protesters, let the fascists have it as intensely as possible so they're thrown into confusion. Just try to avoid overt acts of violence. Maybe, they'll need a jail capable of housing 50,000 instead of 1,000.
