Obama's KGB makes an arrest in Denver

From ABC:

DENVER -- Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.

Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, who works with the ABC News investigative unit.

A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker's neck, then twisted the producer's arm behind him to put on handcuffs.

A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.

It was two hours later when Denver police arrived to place Eslocker under arrest, apparently based on a complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel, a central location for Democratic officials.

During the arrest, one of the officers can be heard saying to Eslocker, "You're lucky I didn't knock the f..k out of you."

Eslocker was released late today after posting $500 bond.

Eslocker and his ABC News colleagues are spending the week investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC's "World News with Charles Gibson."

Add this to the Obama campaign's attempts to use legal means to force the McCain ad which draws attention to Obama's ties to terrorist William Ayers off the air and the Democrat party's burning desire to bring back the misnamed "fairness doctrine" for radio (and television and apparently the Internet as well), which would make it far too complex and risky for radio stations to continue carrying talk radio programs, and you see a clear pattern emerging.

The Democrat party cares no more for our First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the press than they do for our Second Amendment rights to own and carry firearms.

They really are the party of Joseph Stalin.

There is also a lesson here for conservatives who tend to be reflexively pro police.

Any police department or individual police officer who will enforce one unconstitutional law or carry out one unconstitutional order will enforce any unconstitutional law or carry out any unconstitutional order.

Any cop who will carry out an illegal order to detain journalists who are just doing their jobs or enforce any unconstitutional gun control law (and they are all almost all unconstitutional) will also break into a newspaper office and smash the printing press then haul the reporters off to the Gulag. They will also break up church meetings and beat and even kill the worshipers. They will find out were the Jews are hiding and take them, and the Gentiles who are sheltering them, off to the "showers". They will capture runaway slaves and return them to their masters. They will stand at the polling place and inspect the ballots of every voter to see that they have dutifully placed an "X" in the box next to the name of the one apporved candidate for each office.

I repeat. Any police officer who will betray his oath to the constitution in one area will betray it in any area.
