Bush Had Toll Road Protesters Arrested…Oh, Wait, A Dem Had Them Arrested

Where are all the lefties out there complaining about protesters being arrested?

Middle Township, New Jersey Police arrested two motorists on Saturday for speaking out at a public town hall meeting against Governor Jon S Corzine’s plans to increase the use of tolling i the Garden State. Former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan had been standing calmly outside of Middle Township High School dressed in a suit and winter coat. He was surrounded by a handful of sign and pamphlet-wielding toll road opponents belonging to the group Liberty and Prosperity when a local official attempted to convince Lonegan to leave prior to the governor’s arrival.

“It’s not public property, it’s board of education property,” the local school board administrator explained. “You’re going to have to leave the property.”

Says something about the thought processes of those who run the educationional process, eh?

There is also video available of this ironic event

Police charged both of the former elected officials with trespassing. The governor’s office had described the town hall meetings as “part of the governor’s effort to have an open and honest discussion about the state’s financial problems in all of New Jersey’s 21 counties.”

A few people aren’t happy

State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes yesterday ordered his division’s internal affairs unit to investigate the arrest Saturday of two protesters at Gov. Jon Corzine’s town hall meeting in Cape May County.

And well they should. Come on, liberals, make some noise. Stand up for this blatent 1st Amendment violation. You do know what the 1st says, right?

    Since there is no education going on in the educational facilities of most states it may not be public property. Some democrat politician probably holds a deed for it and is waiting for the right time to take it over. They have all became liars and thieves while suffering from a bad case of BDS.

    My family in the Soprano state realize that socialist Corzine is as evil as they come… just as evil as the Arkansas Hillbillies! But blue states deserve everything they get and do not get… Go NJ DEVILS and NY GIANTS Blackbeard.
