  •  I'm not saying it can't be done. I am saying (0+ / 0-)

    that it's not easy to do. I'm really not saying anything at all except that it happens, is extremely intimidating, instills fear, is very surreptitious and it suppresses attendance.

    I have never seen anyone break out of the nets once they are surrounded but I am sure that they have and I am sure that the shit hit the fan for them. Mostly they are squished up inside those nets until the cops line up with the plastic zip ties and arrest them.

    I'm sorry if I offended you or for whatever I did that made you feel the need to challenge me -- this is not something I want to argue about or have a "you are wrong" thing about. It is heartbreaking to see a once free and wonderfully "live and let live" city become a police state. This is my home. It hurts a lot of people here.
