    Anti-War Activist Subpoenas Ashcroft and Rove

    Long-time anti-war activist Brent Bursey, 55, sent subpoenas to Attorney General Ashcroft and Karl Rove to appear at his trial next week, in a case that has come to epitomize the contentious battle for free speech emerging under the Bush Administration.
    The controversy dates to October 2002, when local authorities in South Carolina arrested Bursey at Columbian Metropolitan Airport, where Bush was scheduled to arrive that day, for holding a sign that read "No More War For Oil." He was charged with trespassing, although he was on public property, because he had not been standing in the "free-speech zone" specially designated for protesters. Consistent with similar policies surrounding Bush?s appearances across the country, the protesters were confined to an area over half a mile from the airport, where their message was unlikely to be seen or heard by the President. Bursey told police he had been under the impression that the whole of America was a free speech zone.

    "Free Speech Zone."

    about half a mile from

    "Area not under jurisdiction of the constitution."

    I can't begin telling you how wrong that is.

    Bosh (as they called him in Irag) supported and pushed legislation through in texas allowing you to be heald for 72 hours before being formally charged with anything. He is a facist/idiot/ elitest Oil fuck.

    Ashcroft is a douchebag.....and bush will use the excuse that he had to seperate the two party views so a political brawl wouldnt break out....probally on the lines of "protection from endangering the public"
