Arrests At Bank Of America Protest In Boston

 BOSTON (AP) – Police have arrested two dozen protesters for trespassing during a demonstration against Bank of America’s foreclosure practices at the banking giant’s headquarters in downtown Boston.

Organizers say the event was an act of civil disobedience  intended   to send the message that the lender’s practices were unfair.
“They wanted to be arrested, and we obliged,” Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said.
Organizers say about 3,000 people joined the protest.
Bank of America spokesman T.J. Crawford dismissed the demonstration as a publicity stunt.
There was no mention of Bank of America’s planned debit card fees, which recently have generated headlines and frustrated customers nationwide.

    They should go to Barney Franks and Chris Dodds house. It’s because of the Frank Dodd bill they have to do it.
    It’s true. Democrats need ignorant people to get their votes.
    The commies are down on wall street too.
    So America. Now that they are starting their commie revolution at what point do we defend our liberty?
    The government sure as hell won’t do it for us. The president is a marxist.
    We are the last line of defense for liberty. WAKE UP AMERICA!! TIME TO LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE!!

    I have first hand experience with BofA. They lied, made misrepresentations, committed fraud, breached a contract and were rewarded with a government bailout.

    Phil you really need medication.
