This is an interesting thread but in light of posse comitatus accusations hurled at our fair government this weekend I wanted to point out one line about how polite both our cops and protesters were:

•The U.S. Department of Justice praised Charlotte police for working with protestors to prevent any acts of violence: “Senior command staff and officials worked directly with the demonstrator groups, and this tactic appeared highly effective in quickly reducing tensions by allowing these protestors 'to be heard.' In addition, the accessibility of senior officers in the field smoothed crowd-control issues and allowed for rapid adjustments of strategy. As a result, only 25 individuals were arrested (16 of which were pre-negotiated with the arrestee).”

Isn't that sweet? Most of the arrests werepre-negotiate. I can just see how that worked. "You go first, no you go first, I insist after you" in the booking room.

So for the most part I think our cops are cool. Overall polite and not wanting to hassle anyone. That doesn't mean it's always smooth.

What are your thoughts on the report and CMPD professionalism overall?

We had more than enough police to protect the convention even if it had been held in downtown Bagdad..
