Tell Cheney his policies are messed up, go directly to jail

Don, over at Current Observations, made mention of a news article about the arrest of Steve Howards, and the subsequent lawsuit he filed against the Secret Service member who arrested him.

Howards saw VP Cheney at an outdoor mall in Colorado on June 16, 2006. He told Cheney, as he walked by the VP and the crowd posing for pictures, that he found the policies governing our invasion of Iraq to be objectionable. Ten minutes later, a member of the Secret Service arrested Howards for "assaulting" Cheney. He was handcuffed on the spot, in front of his seven year old son, and taken to jail. The assault charges against Howard were dismissed by the local district attorney's office on July 6th, 2006.
