Washington, D.C. police have announced they are
considering building a nine-foot high wall around
the main downtown corrider to deter people from
protesting against the world's most powerful
financial institutions at the end of September. The
D.C. government is seeking about $30 million from
the Bush administration for weapons and security
and will erect the wall to create a massive security
zone to insulate delegates of the International
Monetary Fund and World Bank during their meetings Sept. 29-30. The money
the district plans to spend to shield the delegates amounts to $15 million per
day, or $10,417 per minute. Additional money is expected to be spent by federal
agencies, such as the FBI, as well.

Now that we know who is funding the police we can lay the responsibility of any wrongdoing at the door of the White House. If a protestor gets killed, does GW get indicted by the Hague?
