Add comment on:Midnight Busts at PeaceCamp2010 Renew Protest Determination
Becky Johnson and Robert Norse
Last night around midnight, nearly 40 people, mostly homeless, faced a squadron of seven deputies headed by Sgt. Fred Plageman. The Sleepbusters strode about the area rousting sleepers, writing misdemeanor citations to those they'd previously "warned", and shortly thereafter arresting those who hadn't left their sleeping bags or were sitting on bedding. One protest leader--"Curbhugger" Chris Doyon--was isolated from the group, then targeted and jailed in what seemed a planned maneuver around an old warrant, designed to decapitate the leadership.
