No police detail

One interesting thing about the tea parties is how quiet it was in terms of problem. I asked two different police who where there and they said it was the easiest crowd they ever dealt with. Lorie Byrd expands on that theme:

Maybe conservative protesters learned they should have engaged in violence, made a big mess and showered less. That formula seems to draw great media coverage for liberal protests. Or maybe they learned to just keep plugging away and that eventually word will get out, as it is now, slowly but surely. Fox News is not only the number one cable channel, but it recently drew bigger numbers than its competitors, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Headline News combined. The New York Times and many of the other major daily newspapers that gave the protests little or no coverage, are suffering and may not survive much longer in their current forms.

So I guess this warning was a tad off.

If only every protest was this way. How many thousands of dollars of overtime could have been saved!
