(AP) Peace activist Cindy Sheehan and three other women were convicted of trespassing Monday for trying to delivery an anti-Iraq war petition to the U.S. Mission to the United Nations and refusing to leave.
A Manhattan Criminal Court judge sentenced them immediately to conditional discharge, which means they could face some form of penalty if they are arrested in the next six months, and ordered them to pay $95 in court surcharges.
I know you guys miss John.
BTW, when you look at the national polling it is almost scary how rapidly we are becoming a nation of Cindy Sheehans. Surprising majorities think that we aren’t winning the Iraq war, that we can’t win and we might as well bug out while the bugging is good. Does that make Cindy Sheehan ultimately more credible than everybody who dismissed her as crazy, extremist, etc? Or is this more of a stopped clock thing. Discuss.
