Chicago’s Finest

Amy Partridge posts a brief account of being arrested and detained for over 20 hours for peacefully protesting in Chicago to the Chicago Indymedia site. “As with all of those around me that got arrested I did not want or intend to get arrested,” she writes. “At least three women that I met were tourist that had got trapped in the crowd (one from Iowa, one from Boston, and one from Michigan).”

A cop finds the site and responds to Amy and other arrestees, describing them as “whining tree-hugging Saddam loving pigs.” In response to queries as to whether those arrested could sue, the cop writes: “Just because we treated you like the assholes you were doesn’t merit a lawsuit. You are all angry, embarrassed and humiliated. You should be.”
