Victims in the Eyes of the ACLU

Please take a look at this picture, and think about what word comes to mind to describe this group of people:


If you're an ACLU attorney, the correct answer is D. These pinheads were demonstrating along George Bush's motorcade route in Lancaster, PA, in an effort to protest the "attrocities" at Abu Ghraib prison. They were subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct. One of the men "had his arm twisted"! Said ACLU attorney Paula Knudsen, "These unjustified arrests were motivated by politics, not law. The actions of these men are clearly protected under the First Amendment."

Somehow I doubt James Madison, the primary author of the First Amendment, had "mooning the President" in mind as a method of peaceful assembly.
