from Pacifica Radio:
Getting word from Aura Bogado and also the Flashpoints team that there are mass arrests going on now in the streets and on the bridges while McCain speaks. Inside the arena, protests also happened, probably Code Pink. Got that from Davey D who is on the floor with the crowd. Inside protesters were dragged out and booed. Stay tuned — we’ll go to Aura as soon as possible. Checked in with our crew on the streets, so far they are all OK. Whew. I asked the Sheriff outside what he knew, but he was real sketchy. Nonetheless he told me they have multiple holding facilities. More as it goes. Give a cheer to our intrepid reporters.
