Humiliation, Mr. DeLay?
During the Republican National Convention, the largest mass arrests in US history occurred, and many, many innocent people were caught up in sweeps and handcuffed, fingerprinted, and photographed, like common criminals. They didn't have the option to surrender to the police at a reasonable time of their choosing; they didn't have the opportunity to negotiate to avoid unnecessary detention or humiliation.
I must have missed DeLay's angry protests that American citizens were treated in such a terrible manner. Surely he made such protests... if he didn't, he would have to be the worst type of hypocrite, a public servant who thinks he deserves special privileges that the common folks don't.
