    NYPD arrests, ‘brutalizes’ peace activist McGovern ahead of Petraeus speech

    http://rt.com/usa/201039-nypd-arrest...vern-petraeus/

    The New York Police Department has detained prominent peace activist and former CIA agent Ray McGovern, with witnesses saying he was “yelling in pain” during arrest. McGovern was detained ahead of a David Petraeus speech that he planned to attend.

    McGovern was detained before the start of a talk between former CIA director David Petraeus, retired US Army Lt. Col. John Nagl, and author Max Boot on American Foreign Policy at the 92nd St Y., an Upper East Side cultural community center.

    Anti-war group 'The World Can’t Wait' said the activist was arrested “at protest of speech.” He was reportedly prevented by security from entering, charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, and will not be arraigned until Friday. The group has called for McGovern’s release on Twitter and Facebook.

    The World Can’t Wait alleged on Twitter that McGovern was “brutalized” by the NYPD and later reported “screams coming from backroom” where the activist was being held. RT has contacted the NYPD who have yet to respond to allegations.

    It appeared that the activist was detained even before entering the venue, despite having a ticket for the event.


    Independent journalist and filmmaker Cat Watters was due to film McGovern during the talk, asking a question of Petraeus, but as she arrived she saw McGovern being arrested by police, telling them “I have a ticket!” Watters told RT that McGovern has a shoulder injury and was apparently yelling in pain during the arrest.

    God bless Ray! This man have overcome cancer, now he has to overcome this cancer.
    Hosea 4:6
    "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

    There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. ~ Washington Irving (1783-1859)

    Well. It's unfortunate to have to hear from Ray in the context of this skullduggery but thanks for sharing, op. Ray does a lot and really is a historian in the traditional sense of the word too. Is no wonder they don't want him around some of these places.

    He's always on Rt discussing critical matters of foreign policy and other political shenanigans that we won't ever hear from the hurry up and read the teleprompter so we can just get elected networks. Often an hour at a time. Folks should maybe take some time to listen in and learn some things from him and others like him who are being about it as opposed to talking about it.

    The thing won't let me rep yer posting, Anti Federalist, so I suppose I haver to spread some around.

    Ray is always worth hearing out.

    Would like to see him on the Ron Paul Chaneel.

    Hope he fully heals up!
