Bunch of savages in this town...

Just in case anyone was wondering, I was not involved in this incident.

Albuquerque police spokesman Jeff Arbogast said the protesters took over Central Avenue and began marching toward Interstate 25 Thursday night -- indicating they were going to block it. Arbogast said protesters were warned numerous times to leave the street, but began throwing things at officers. The officers then sprayed the crowd of more than 300.

Arbogast said a dozen protesters were arrested. He said the protesters at one point blocked the entrance to University of New Mexico Hospital, forcing an ambulance to find a different route.

Sigh. as someone who is against war in Iraq, I'd like to ask these people to stay off my side. Anyone who would force an ambulace to "go around" just sucks. I bet most of them were from Santa Fe, anyway.
