I just read that Cindy Sheehan, the de-facto figurehead of the American anti-war movement, was arrested during a protest at the White House.

While I truly do appreciate the fervor with which she and many others have voice their opposition to the war in Iraq during the past months and years, I have to say, they (protesters in general) lose a ton of credibility in my book when they cross the line and start breaking laws. Yes - there will be the nay-sayers that will claim that she was unjustly arrested just to get rid of her for a few hours, but if you ask me, obstructing traffic along the sidewalk in front of the White House is nothing to take lightly, and if the news reports are accurate, she and the others did deserve to get arrested.
