    •  It was... (none)
      a late Saturday night snark moment...they are part of the blogosphere.

      Also I find it problematic to imply that the Secret Service is a group of murdering thugs.

      •  I think it was more (none)
        intimidation and trying to get her to leave. They should have been treating this woman with kid gloves, even trying to get the sheriff to help out with the possible road problem..maybe helping instead of telling them they could be killed..... Thanks for setting the record straight in regards to your late night snark. I will go back and change my ratings.

        •  Of course they want (none)
          the protestors to go and stay in a hotel at night. They absolutely do not want anyone to die on their watch.

          They went by and advised. Sharon points this out in the objective section of her diary. Cindy is camped on a corner. She acknowledged that it's not easy visibility. There is little to no shoulder.

          Their job in Crawford is security. By having Cindy and others camped at the corner, they wind up with one more mutable factor in their equation. The fewer things that they have to worry about...the better for them.

          Trating her with kid gloves implies a lack of respect. That turns her into a fragile creature. CIndy Sheehan is so not a fragile creature. She's a pillar of strength. And I suspect that the guys who are in the Secret Service who'd served in the military earlier recognize that strength as that of their mothers.

          I know that I'd want to be treated with respect...kid gloves can be taken as condescension.
