Websites such as Salon.com, and miscellaneous blogs, are the only places that I have seen mention of the police raids that took place the other day at various places near the convention.

There is a video on Salon.com of a woman holding a flower in protest being peppered sprayed by a parade of police.

I am curious why Candidate Obama has not spoken out one way or another about the police activity in Minnesota.

WHY DO YOU WANT PRESIDENT TO BE OBAMA TO COMMENT
ABOUT MINNESOTA, HE IS RUNNING A CAMPAIGN, LET
MCCAIN AND HIS COHORTS HANDLE MINNESOTA!
YOU GUYS ARE SLICK, YOU ALWAYS WANT OBAMA TO
COMMENT ABOUT THINGS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH
HIM OR HIS CAMPAIGN!
JUST LIKE THAT SITUATION WITH PALIN'S DAUGHTER,
WHAT DID YOU EXPECT BARACK TO SAY, HE IS SMARTER
THAN EVERYONE, HE GRADUATED FROM HARVARD, MCCAIN
CAN'T SPELL HARVARD!
MCCAIN CAN BARELY SPELL ANYTHING!
HE SURE CAN'T VET VERY WELL!
