RNC 2008 - Day 3

The aftermath of day one of protesting at the Republican National Convention 2008 in St Paul, Minnesota. Of the photos I took on Monday during the aftermath of the first day of protests, this was my personal favorite. The protest sign was fitting for my eyes. We've voiced our views, we've marched the streets, we've said our lets move on and get back to normal. I was glad to see the sign properly disposed of instead of thrown into the streets for someone else to pick up. After seeing what some of the out of towner protesters have done to the downtown St Paul area, hummmm, is calling those who are here to cause destruction and disruption 'protesters' am I disrespecting those who are actually here to protest? Protest all you want, it's your right as a US Citizen [you'd be killed in other countries for doing so], but do in civil and leave the needless destruction out of it.
