Level of police for a parade 04.May.2001 15:44

Heh, do you think that you will see this many police ready for battle the rose parade or during the whole election hubbub with the "Bush campaign protestors" who showed up in Pioneer Square for a month straight? HELL NO!! (During that shin-dig for dubya I showed up to join the march around the square with a "bush blows" sign and was threatened with physical violence by several irate "protesters" for voicing beliefs and there wasn't a cop in sight to protect me from their threats of violence) So why on earth would they need to show up en'masse for a peaceful parade for worker rights??? go figure 'eh??
