Article: Unauthorized Freedom Walkers will be locked up


Colonel Panic
Let Freedom Ring? :confused: :eek:


Organizers of the Pentagon's 9/11 memorial Freedom Walk on Sunday are taking extraordinary measures to control participation in the march and concert, with the route fenced off and lined with police and the event closed to anyone who does not register online by 4:30 p.m. today.

The march, sponsored by the Department of Defense, will wend its way from the Pentagon to the Mall along a route that has not been specified but will be lined with four-foot-high snow fencing to keep it closed and "sterile," said Allison Barber, deputy assistant secretary of defense.

The U.S. Park Police will have its entire Washington force of several hundred on duty and along the route, on foot, horseback and motorcycles and monitoring from above by helicopter. Officers are prepared to arrest anyone who joins the march or concert without a credential and refuses to leave, said Park Police Chief Dwight E. Pettiford.
Aren't all "freedom" walks free and you don't have to Register to do it??? This country is becoming so damn paranoid every year...
Yes, I thought it was a pretty remarkable irony that people who join the freedom walk without permission could be arrested. Just amazing.
You can tell with certainty it's not free, by the fact that it contains the word "freedom". If it was actually free, they wouldn't feel it necessary to call it a Freedom Walk - c.f Ministry of Truth, Ministry of Peace.

Way back when, countries used to call the government department that runs the military by its true name - the Ministry of War, or similar. Department of Defence? Just silly, right...
