The DES MOINES REGISTER article didn't say WHICH war that 12-year-old Frankie Hughes was protesting- Iraq or Afghansitan- regardless- the girl was arrested for "trespassing" after refusing to leave Senator Tom Harkin's office in Des Moines IA..
Also- I didn't know Sen. Harkin's office was "an arena-" much less a "criminal" one!
A 53-year-old woman was also arrested- as well as Frankie's mother- 49-year-old Renee Lynn Espeland.
Espeland was charged with "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" regarding her daughter's arrest.
Gee- I didn't know that an American citizen's right of peaceful protest was considered "contributing to the delinquency of a minor-" but in many ways- today's America barely resembles the country I was brought-up in.
Which- BTW- is falling apart and dying as I type....
