Small Town Votes to Arrest the Prez

bush-cheney_2005.jpg

Residents of a small town in Vermont have drawn up legislation that would designate George Bush and Dick Cheney war criminals and subject them to arrest if they ever passed through Brattleboro, Vermont.  The petition goes to ballot on March 4, and already the strong language has set off a firestorm of backlash from angered Americans who have caught wind of the bold move.  Political dissent isn’t new in Vermont, in fact the State Senate even voted to support impeachment of the President and VP last year and unfortunately the referendum doesn’t empower town police to enforce an actual arrest of the “Disastrous Duo” but it is stirring the pot of sentiments.  Below is an excerpt of the drafted petition:

   

It reads: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”
