    Re: Zombies get $165K from City of Minneapolis

    Thank you zombies for suing noone in particular and screwing over tax payers. They are fighting mindless consumerism but supporting mindless litigation.

    I get why they are ******, spending a couple days in jail, but honestly....just request that the city give a public apology and free lunch for a week.

    What are they going to do with 165K? It's not like you've just got brains at your disposal, ready to be bought and eaten at leisure.

    Had they just taken failblog.org's advice, they wouldn't be having these problems, now would they...



    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Personally, I think they should get more. People were all up in arms about socialized healthcare, but no one gives a **** about a non violent public protest being broken up and throwing the participants in jail? We need to wake up people, fine, you want to look and see what's in their bags, I'm OK with that, once you determine it is not a bomb, then that's where it should have stopped. The fact that you can be arrested for no good reason and thrown in jail for two days, just because someone thought you were a little suspicious is pretty disturbing to me. It will never cease to amaze me what we as a country consider freedom.

    I'd love to see a wake up call getting sent to stupid cities and police departments. Just because they don't like what people are doing doesn't mean people are breaking any laws or deserve to be put in jail. Here again is another one of those issues that really irks me off. Don't blame the zombies for wasting taxpayer dollars, the problem is the elected officials and idiot police departments who can't differentiate between public protest and a real terrorist situation. The money being wasted is by the idiots in Minneapolis who over reacted to a public protest.

    Again, I'm not against checking out the situation. I'm not against checking the bags. But once they saw they were merely radios in the backpacks, they should have let them go about their way.

    Until we see the Patriot Act repealed, you'll continue to see people being held for long periods of time and for no reason for the "safety of the people".
