Skips Out on Court Date


By Mondoreb

"Thank God for the Internet, or we wouldn't know anything, and we would already be a fascist state."
On the surface, Ms. Sheehan and I probably share few views, but on this I'm solidly on her side. My local newspaper didn't carry any news this morning about Cindy, so without the Internet, I wouldn't know about the following.
WASHINGTON — A bench warrant was issued Thursday for antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan, who did not appear for arraignment Thursday in a Washington, D.C., courtroom to face charges related to her Sept. 10 disorderly conduct arrest on Capitol Hill.

Her spokeswoman, Tiffany Burns issued a statement, "She wasn't aware that there was a court appearance today". If I were the judge, I'd want to know if this was the view of Sheehan herself. Or if was absent from court to call attention to an earlier pronouncement.

It's up to us, the people, to break immoral laws and resist. As soon as the leaders of a country lie to you, they have no authority over you. These maniacs have no authority over us. And they might be able to put our bodies in prison, but they can't put our spirits in prison."
Perhaps she thought the court had no authority over her and the judge immoral. Surely a question the judge might want to know when the defendant skips out on a court date.
"Because they need to go to prison for what they've done in this world. We can't have a pardon. They need to pay for what they've done."
Cindy Sheehan is certain President Bush murdered her son, who was killed in Iraq. She made herself the center of a bizarre media circus last summer. One suspects it would have died the quick, quiet death any conservative protest is accorded. Say, if it had concerned Congressional Democrats' attempts to cut off funding for a U.S. army in the field.

That circus, albeit muted, continues this morning. As Cindy Sheehan readies her attempt to unseat Nancy Pelosi, she continues to make the news. According to Sheehan, President Bush should not be accorded any "special treatment" for his conduct concerning the war. Now she comes to ask the court for special treatment for her conduct, her arrest at the Petraeus hearings.
"Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time"
Seaching the Internet for the source of this quote proved fruitless. But it's a certainty that it's not part of the "Wit and Wisdom of Cindy Sheehan".
