Video: Arrest Yesterday at McCaskill Healthcare Forum


Thanks to blogger Peter Glickert for drawing our attention to the video (below) posted on his website HatingNotDebating.

As you can see from the video, the woman arrested yesterday at Senator Claire McCaskill's  healthcare forum was kicked out of the event after a fellow attendee took it upon himself to confiscate her property.

As Glickert observes on his blog, the television news only showed the woman being escorted out by police -- leaving viewers to assume that her actions, alone, prompted her arrest.
