Peace Granny Triumph Friday

The Oregon Peace Grandmas, arrested after an action in which the most violent act appears to have been the throwing of some poster paint on a window, for which deed they were compared by the prosecutor to the suicide hijackers of 9-11...were acquitted. The news comes from the infinitely admirable FreewayBlogger, who got it out of the Portland (OR) Indymedia:

A Multnomah County jury found five grandparents charged with "unlawfully and intentionally causing substantial inconvenience to the United States" not guilty of Criminal Mischief in the 3rd degree on Thursday, December 13. Judge Richard Baldwin heard the case which stems from a silent vigil held by the Surge Protection Brigade, also know as the Seriously Pissed Off Grannies,

heh, as they say...

on Good Friday, April 6, at the US Army and Marine recruiting center on NE Broadway. The jury began deliberations Thursday morning at 9:50 and deliberated for about a half an hour. After the decision, one of the jurors referred to the defendants as "heroes."

As somebody once said, go ye forth and do likewise...
